Happy Easter Everyone, while you are all working your way through a mountain of Easter Eggs, please see a quick pre season update from Boxmoor HQ.
The season is now fast approaching with the first game starting on Saturday 22nd April. With 3 teams on a Saturday and 2 teams on a Sunday, there is plenty of opportunity to play cricket this season.

Please could everyone get their availability on the website asap. This will help Andy and the Captains see who is available rather than them chasing players up. Getting good availability at the start of the season will set us up nicely for the months ahead. If anyone doesn't have access to the availability on the website through the members area, please ask.

Adult Membership forms
Everyone needs to fill in an Adult membership form before the season starts. It is even more important now as it is mandatory to have everyone's data of birth on the Saracens League website.
Please can you return the forms over the next few days to Matt Larkins.

Senior Training
Senior Training will take place every Tuesday evening at the Moor starting on 25th April at 6:30pm. Adam Hills and Nick Cotterill have kindly agreed to oversee the sessions. This open to everyone so please come down and get some practice in.

Race Night - Friday 28th April

Boxmoor CC will be holding a night at the races on Friday 28th April. This is a night for all the family so please feel free to come down with partners,children and friends. This is always a fun night and it would be great to see the clubhouse full. If you would like to sponsor and name a race or own a  horse, please contact Shelly at
