2018 Summer Season draws to a close....
To overcome all the off field problems, and see our 1st Team finish 2nd in Hampshire County 1, is a credit to everybody at the club. Congratulations to Nippy and the team. You deserve Southern League cricket. A very young 2nd team ultimately just fail to avoid relegation from Dorset 1, but a group of 14, 15 & 16 year olds will benefit from the experience and the future is bright. Thanks to Jon Rake and James Miller, along with the other more experienced members of the side, for guiding them through the season. The 3rds finish top half of Hants Regional 1. A mixture of older hands and youth players have been involved in some excellent games of cricket. Well done Mark Luther on getting players involved each week. The 4ths, containing mainly youth players, aged 13 and upwards, have been given their first opportunity to play adult cricket. The commitment of Steve Laird and latterly, Rob Franks has been crucial.
Plenty of hard work ahead and planning for next season will start this week.
HANTS 1 team.......
On behalf of the players thanks go to the Chairman and committee for their backing. Also a big thank you to the loyal band of
supporters who have driven many miles to follow and be there for the team. You know who you are and the support is very
much appreciated. Grateful thanks to Brian Nippard and Cat Bland for scoring so proficiently during the season. We cannot play without you being there. Thank you to John Barber for his umpiring duties. He stood for every game so we were never 'one short'. Lastly thanks to Crispo, Cohen and Jimmy for all on pitch preparation.
On behalf of Parley Cricket Club a thank you to each and every one of the 25 players who represented the Hants 1 team in the 17 completed fixtures during the season. Everyone can look back and know they have contributed to the success. Special mention to Alex Nippard and Sam Collins as leaders of the gang. There have been many notable performances on the field so please take a little time to savour the season. Off the field most games enjoyed suitable alcoholic enjoyment! Be proud of your achievement. You have made history which you can now enjoy and look forward to 2019.
From a personal viewpoint it has been my absolute pleasure to have been with you on each step throughout the season. In a similar manner to 2017 thank you for your company and commitment in 2018. In years to come you may not remember
scores or the opposition but you will remember Parley and your team colleagues. KC
