26 Mar 2017 : Thank you Simon!

On behalf of Stock Cricket Club I would like to thank Simon Watkins for his hard work over the past decade to run and co-ordinate the Junior Section at Stock Cricket Club.

Simon has opted to stand down from the role of Youth Organiser after making a massive contribution to the Club for a sustained period of time. We are now looking for a new Youth Organiser to assist in general admin and fixture arranging to ensure our set-up can still function throughout the summer.

In the interim, the point of contact for all Youth enquiries will be Dan Porter who can be contacted via the website.

24 Jan 2017 : EGM Cancelled - New Captains Appointed

Stock Cricket Club Committee hereby announce that the EGM scheduled for Thursday 26th January 2017 has been cancelled.

As previously advertised, nominations for the vacant captaincy roles needed to be received by Monday 23rd January 2017 and after this date, only three candidates had put themselves forward, one for each vacancy.

After consideration from President, Chairman and Committee, it was decided that an EGM would not be necessary and the three candidates appointed until the end of the 2017 season. The decision allows the Club to complete the necessary paperwork and league registrations in time for the start of the new season.

The appointed captains are as follows;

1st XI Captain: Chris Westwood

2nd XI Captain: Steve Herley

Sunday Captain: Dan Porter

Each of the new captains will be expected to appoint a suitable deputy to assist with the running of their respective sides over the course of the year.

The Committee would like to congratulate the Captains on their appointments and we all look forward to another year of Cricket on The Common.

Here is to a successful 2017.

Dan Porter

Hon. Chairman
