Topsham St James Cricket Club will be holding their Registration Evening at Bonfire Field, Exeter Road next Monday (April 24), between 5.30 and 8pm, writes Sheila Harding.

This is an ideal opportunity for both current and potential new members (adults and colts) to meet the captains and coaches/managers.

Thereafter the ladies will be training on Wednesdays, the men on Thursdays and the colts (both boys and girls) on Fridays.

Topsham St James is a very friendly club catering for players of all ages and abilities, and there are plenty of opportunities for everyone to play cricket at various levels.

In addition to our men’s and women’s 1st XIs, there is a men’s 2nd XI, a midweek T20 side which plays in the Exeter Evening League, a Sunday ‘Friendly’ XI, and boys and girls teams covering all ages.

During the winter indoor nets were held at Exeter School and this coming Saturday the first match will take place at Hatherleigh with a further one at Kilmington on Sunday, April 30.

Everyone is delighted that Wilkinson Grant remains as the main sponsors. They are keen to help develop young cricketers and their support is important in enabling first-class coaching to be delivered at the Friday night junior training sessions.

These evenings have also become a popular social occasion for many of the parents, friends and siblings who enjoy relaxing, with the bar open and the barbecue lit, at the end the working week.

Sidney Pratt Builders’ sponsorship is targeted at developing the skills of the adult players and this has enabled a coach to be employed for their training sessions. Also the club is grateful to Southernhay Dental Practice, Projexe Engineering, Buildbase (Exmouth) and EIC who are also providing sponsorship in various areas of the club.
