Chairman of Cricket update ahead of 2021 season

Dear members,

I thought I would take this opportunity to update you all with the following information:


The 2021 captains and vice-captains are as follows:
Captain: John Smyth
Vice-captain: Joe Reynolds

Captain: Dan Supple
Vice-captain: George Reynolds

Captain: Amarit Saini
Vice-captain: David Webb

Captain: Neil Freeman
Vice-captain: Mark Collyer

Sunday XI
Captain: Tom Glass-Burgess
Vice-captains: Brin Dhoul & Elliot Alger


After a successful but cold Easter weekend, where as many as 37 members participated,
training will now continue on Thursday evenings at 6pm and Saturday 10th April at 10am.

Please note the first fixtures take place over the weekend of 17th/18th April. If you are selected to play there will still be some ground preparation to be completed so please try to ensure you arrive at the ground early.

Changes from the Kent Cricket League

For this year only, Division 2 1st XI will only be provided with one panel umpire.

Therefore we will have to provide our own umpire for home matches and Michael Chaffe has agreed to stand in those matches.


Subscriptions have been set at the same level as 2019 as follows.

Adults - £120.00
Student/Unemployed - £80.00

Junior (U17) - £70
Junior (U9) - £50
Junior family membership (1 sibling +) - £100

Social membership - £20.00

Payment of subscriptions are due by 31st May in one payment or you can make 6 monthly installments over the season commencing in April, final payment in September.

Bank details:
Sort Code: 09-01-28
Account No: 86138919

If you haven’t started to make payments by 31st May you will not be considered for selection.

Match Fees

Due to government guidelines, we probably won't be providing teas until at least 21st June. Therefore we have tried to keep match fees at an 'easy-to-collect' level, as follows:

Seniors - £10.00 (Saturdays)
Junior - £5.00 (Saturdays)
£5.00 for all players on Sundays

This could be reviewed after 21st June if we are able to provide teas.


As you are aware we must strictly adhere to the current government guidelines. I will be sending a separate notice very soon covering these guidelines for the period 12th April to 17th May.

Please get in touch if you have any questions regarding any of this information and I will be happy to help.

Best wishes,

Paul Smyth
Chairman of Cricket
Dartford Cricket Club
