Members nets morning
#1
On Tuesday morning at the indoor school is the return of the members nets morning from 10 30-12. They had 6 sessions before Christmas, and when work allowed i went along. I Found it really good getting coaching, even at my age of 52 i had the best piece of batting advice i have ever had. I really needed it as i am a regular 10/11 batsmen. Before xmas there were a couple of retired people who hadn't played since school,and they really enjoyed it so it doesn't matter what ability you are. It really is an enjoyable morning, coffee provided, don't have to pay for parking. Another good part i enjoyed was having a coffee, talking with other people, and watching the pros train.  So if work allows or you are retired i really recommend this event to you. A good idea from the club so well done to them.

Thanks for the heads up. I'd love to go but not sure I can justify the trip from Reading during the week!
Proud to be a Bear

Nice gesture by the club; good to see a tradition revived and a good way to build a better rapport between members and the club.
Bears fan, Wolves fan, blood red Socialist, a not so vital statistician; what a collection...

It should be noted it is not free, cost is £5.

Would you go if it was free Ken?

No, my active cricket days are behind me. The annual members nets day is more interesting because of forums etc. Good value if you wish to take part in physical activities and receive coaching tips. I would pay £5 to see you facing the bowling machine at an appropriate speed!

90 mph would be much more fun for everyone (except Simon, of course).
A bit like Brett Lee bowling to Piers Morgan:

Anyone on here going to the annual members nets morning tomorrow, always a good morning, and always good to catch up with people you haven't seen since the last season.

Derek Randall not coming to cricket society tomorrow because of illness. Mike Williams at very short notice i am sure will try and arrange something. The season has ended the way it began Colin Povey failed to appear at the first meeting. Every sympathy for Mike who does a sterling job.

Eddie Hemming earmarked to replace him, failing that a current Bear will step into the breach-if that doesn't materialise I'm happy to give a 45 minute talk on the incompetence of the ecb

Will Rhodes came across as a really good talker today, he will be a breath of fresh air in the dressing room, plenty of personalty. A question was asked today to Dom Sibly, totally tongue in check. The person asked i nominate you to take on the roll from Jonathon Trott who has been useless, to get installed heaters in the members seating section, at which point OHD interupted, and said we are sponsered by Selco shouldn't be a problem. We give him some stick at times but he is quite entertaining.
