Staffs 50+ CCC play in a national competition organised by the ECB at Lords which involves playing in a regional league from which the top sides go through to a knockout competition, leading to a national final, which, this year, is between Durham and Essex. The season normally features pre-season nets, followed by warm up games and then matches against Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Herefordshire, Shropshire and Wales. Matches are normally played on a Wednesday afternoon so ’would be’ players need to consider their availability in light of this.
Having underachieved in the last few years, we are looking to promote the team more widely and attract more players. The standard is good and the games of 45 overs per side are competitive and enjoyable from both a sporting and social perspective. Next year the side will be captained by Tony Dutton with Noel Talbot assisting him as vice-captain. Players would normally have played to Birmingham League, Staffs Clubs Premier or North Staffs Premier level, although that is not always the case.
