Rowner Cricket Club is based in Gosport, on the south coast of Hampshire and operates two adult Hampshire league teams.
The 1st XI competes in County Division Two and the 2nd XI in Regional Division 2 (South).
On Sundays, the club competes in friendly matches where the emphasis is on enjoyment and developing the skills of players both young and old!
ALRIGHT LADS ?
TIME AND THE CRICKETER
Time loops the wrist of the cricketer, twisting his bat, adjusting his cap, against the late sun arriving as he takes strike.
Little magic now conjured from the willow, less likely to strike the oak, with a red bang in its branches, on guard over the churchyard,
The clock strikes the hour. The stance seems firm. A click.....and the snickering. Grey reaper lifts a flickering finger.
Tony Johnson, Rowner CC Club President
Four sessions into our 2014 net programme at Brune Park School and the numbers have been really strong, our best turnout for a number of years. We`ve seen some new faces which is great (and they look like quality players too) along with some familiar figures and also most encouragingly some young players with a further winter`s beef on them who look like they might do some damage in the League this year - a mouth-watering prospect.
Due to the clear appetite to train we`re seeing this year and the poor ground conditions at Rowner Green which are likely to delay the start of our campaign we have added a further weekend session. Although there will be a break on Saturday 5th April (which is incidentally NatWest Cricketforce weekend) we will have a session on Saturday 12th April betweeen 1-2pm. As ever anyone interested in joining and participating, whether it be Saturday or Sunday, League or friendly is most welcome. The new faces we have seen so far at nets and the very real interest from others in joining RCC is a real boost for 2014 for our great club, as we celebrate our 39th year as a Hampshire Cricket League participant. SEE YOU AT NETS !
Please contact the acting Club Secretary if interested.
