Damerham Cricket Club have lost a lot of players this year. Before the season even started we lost half a dozen key players to jobs, moving away or family situations.
During the season we’ve lost more. Some have lost interest, some have fallen out of love with it and decided they’ve had enough. Some work away, or Saturdays, or more than they thought they might.
You need 11 for a cricket team. Ideally you need a core of eight or nine, and half a dozen others who don’t want to play every week.
So far this year 27 people have played for DCC.
Three have played every game.
10 only once, three twice.
Of that 27, seven are currently available this Saturday.
Every week is a struggle. If the situation persists, it looks likely that it’s not really going to be feasible to field a league cricket side next year.
If you, or anyone you know wants to play, please let us know.
