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
Two sessions into our 2014 net programme at Brune Park School and the numbers have been really strong, probably 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 - a mouth-watering prospect.
With three sessions still to go there`s still time to get involved. And of course anyone interested in joining and participating, whether it be Saturday or Sunday, League or friendly is most welcome. I`ll reiterate that, despite a number of initiatives that the Committee has commenced to increase our player base, we ALL share responsibility for strengtening the membership of this great club, 39 years a Hampshire Cricket League participant, which last season fell to a 15 year low, so new blood is most welcome. SEE YOU THERE !
