Seaham Harbour Cricket Club are already looking for new players for the 2007 season. The last few games this season have shown that despite improving the 1st XI sqaud by adding some good players to last years side in Paras Dogra, Simon Brown and Gavin Keen the club are still short of 1st XI players when work commitments, holidays and injuries kick in.
The 2nd XI have had a difficult season and had to play too many juniors too early and although the club are thankful for their support we need to recruit more senior or older junior players to play 2nd team cricket. This will hopefully make the 2nd XI more competitive and help younger juniors with their cricket development by playing them at an appropriate level for their ability.
While captains have not been selected for the next season (will be selected after clubs AGM) many in the club hope that current captains Martin Gill and Ian Dawson will be in charge of the 1st XI and 2nd XI respectively.
There have been discussions in committee about whether or not the club should have a 3rd XI next season due to a number of reasons and the committee would like to hear from those players who would be interested in playing 3rd XI cricket next year to help with the decision. Although no decision will be made befoere the clubs AGM (or after if it is not tabled as a item on the agenda).
The club would also be interested in junior players joining the club at U9, U11, U13, U15 and U18 level.
Any players who would like to play cricket at Seaham Harbour Cricket Club in 2007 are urged to contact secretary Ray Armbrister on 0191 5346492 for details of Winter coaching for senior and junior players.
The club intends to enter a junior and senior side in this years Winter Tournament to be held at Durham CCC
