Review of 2011 Season
Uley Cricket Club - an Up-and-Down Season
Uley C.C.'s 2011 season was a real roller-coaster of ups and downs. The 1st Team, promoted last year to the Stroud Premier Division, started with two wins against last year's champions Eastcombe and this year's eventual winners Slimbridge. This form proved hard to maintain, and despite a weekend when we beat Minchinhampton and Bisley, the 1st team found themselves in the bottom three with two games to go. After a narrow loss to Rockhampton, we thought we had been relegated, but drama and controversy were set to intervene.
It transpired that Eastcombe had fielded an ineligible player: they had points deducted and were relegated. In the last game of the season Uley beat Hardwicke, Steve Kirk starring with 81, and Eastcombe beat local rivals Bisley, to send them down. Uley had survived relegation by 0.3 of a point! .
Throughout the season the squad proved it can play at this higher level. Special mentions go to 15-year-old Dylan Williams - who led the bowling all season, ably assisted by Wayne Fisher and Andy Tutton -- and to Ben Ward, Andy Wellings and Mike Pain for their batting. After five years as 1st team captain Tom Williams is standing down to give his family a well-earned rest!
Uley 2nd team had a mixed season and finished mid-table in the Stroud Second Division, 15-year-old Aaron Leonard the star with the bat. Perhaps the most promising aspect of the season has been the junior cricket, with over 40 boys and girls, organised by Jo and Danny Mead in partnership with the school, laying down foundations for Uley's future.
The club is always looking for new players, scorers, umpires and volunteers - so if you want to get involved next season, please contact me on the number below. Dr Simon Opher, Chair of Uley CC, Tel 01453 860355
