Aiming High in 2021!

With the great news received on the 22nd February, concerning the resumption of outdoor competitive sport, we’re delighted that The Ashfield will have a full season of competitive cricket.

Four senior men’s teams will enter the Warwickshire Cricket League, opening on 17th April for the 1st and 2nd XIs, then on 1st May for the 3rd and 4th XIs. Full fixture lists can be found on the individual team pages

The 1st XI have made a number of great signings to add to an already strong squad. After the success of the 2020 season, it’s going to be a lot tougher in 2021. Teams now know about us, and will themselves have strengthened over the winter.

Having said that, the objectives remain the same. Finish as high as we can, whilst playing an exciting brand of cricket. The objectives for the other senior teams are just the same, with an especial focus on the development of our younger players, who are the future of the club and potentially the county.

The appointment of Ian Carey as Director of Cricket has provided further impetus and focus towards establishing The Ashfield as one of the leading clubs in the county; whether that be senior cricket, youth cricket, women’s and girls’ cricket, or a brilliant social and community organisation.

What ever happens, it will just be great to get out and play some competitive sport.

And in the words of Club Captain Alex Perry “Good luck to the whole club over the next 7 months. Let’s keep the momentum going!”
