Unfortunately this year’s league has been cancelled but Soulbury are planning to play some friendlies on Sundays against local villages, starting Sunday 2nd August v Drayton Parslow. Meanwhile, work at the ground doesn’t stop and thanks to help from the Parish Council the inside of the pavilion is getting some much-needed improvement with a new ceiling being put in in the coming weeks. We hope to have the bar open and some home fixtures towards the end of August and in September.
Soulbury Village Cricket Club won their fifth successive promotion last year, meaning that in 2020 they will be in the top division of the Four Counties Cricket League. So 2020 promises to be very exciting with the club putting a second XI in the league structure and testing themselves in the top division.
The promoted squad are:
Back row L-R: Ben Cook, Naeem Ahmed, Kieron Sear, Tim Collins, James Carter, Ash Hussain, Colin Francis – umpire
Second row L-R: Aamir Butt, Rhys Nicholas, Nadeem Akhtar, Nick Mead, Nafees Ahmed, Naeem Akhtar
Front: Ramsey – team mascot
