2015 Captain's Report

2015 was a poor season for Wimbledon 3XI.  The loss of key squad members to injury, retirement or team promotion meant an unsettled start to the season, and the loss of the fortress of Shrewsbury House, as well as continual inconsistency in lineup added a nomadic feel to the team.

The struggle for players really hurt the team's chances; 56 players were used throughout the season, and only 5 players played 10 or more games.  Only one player, new recruit Ryan Smith, made more than 250 runs, and just 4 bowlers passed 10 wickets - Carlton Anand the pick of the bowlers with 24 wickets at 13.63.

Thanks must to to JB for giving up his Saturdays to help out with the scoring, and to Neal Harvey for stepping in to fill the void left by the retirement of Lulu.  Hopefully 2016 will see a return to glory, but for now, sincere congratulations to Sunbury who were worthy winners.


2014 Captain's Report

Once again, Wimbledon 3rd team showed class and courage to secure yet another league victory. As Reigate brought in players to wrestle the 1st team’s grip of the championship trophy, the strength in depth of Wimbledon CC caused a pleasantly familiar result in the 3XI league table, a welcome constant in a year of change.

An unsettled line up throughout the season, WCC were once again lucky to have a core of experience consistently available, meaning there was always an underlying belief within the team that they would win. 3 victories spring to mind - Sutton away, where Tom Eaves timed his chase to perfection. Dulwich away, where a fantastic all round performance to bowl them out for 52, secured victory before the rain. And the trouncing of Sunbury to win the championship.

Once again, Dave Wills topped the runs tally for WCC, and he holds a 100% captaincy record while filling in for inspirational captain Harry Houlder while he was out injured. Wills was ably supported with the bat by Brad van Bylevelt, Joe Eddison and newcomer Eric Anand, who also topped the wicket tally. Will Whipple and Tom Bradshaw showed that the WCC youth ranks are full of quality, and Garey Howe and Jamie Andrews showed all that off spin isn’t always a waste of time.

Huge thanks must go out to all that took part, especially scorer JB and umpires Lulu, who make the captain’s job a lot easier, and to Reigate, for pushing the team so close yet again.
