Here at SLM Toyota, we are proud to be sponsoring the Old Catton Cricket Club. The club has had a successful year so far and are set to continue to progress in the next season.
With thanks to the club Committee, cooperation of the Parish Council and kind donations from Vice-Presidents and sponsors, the club has been able to add a new score hut to the previous year’s sightscreens and fenced enclosure. The addition of such significant equipment and facilities is essential for the club to run matches, as well as creating a better ambience. These improvements are all part of the club’s goal to achieve Club Mark status by next year.
SLM Toyota are pleased to have played a part in giving such an enthusiastic club the donations they need to improve their facilities and progress their success.
The club have many different teams and divisions, all proving their ability and passion for Cricket. On Saturdays, the 1st XI, under the steady captainship of Giles Pickett, are competing for a promotion spot in Division 5 of The Norfolk Cricket Alliance. Currently sitting 3rd, the team are hoping to make the top 2. The A Team, Skipper Matt Ambrose, promoted last season, are adapting to life in Division 3NE of the Norfolk Cricket League, and a further couple of wins should see them safe and ready to challenge next season. Our B Team in Division 4SE are fighting for survival as is the wont of nearly all B and C teams. Despite this, they are a happy bunch regardless of being raided for players by our teams above, including Skipper Greg Crisp.
“We are maintaining a side in the Mid-Norfolk Sunday League, Burgess Shield Division, having won as many as lost, and in mid-week our Under 15s side have reached the Quarter Finals of The Andy Seeley Trophy. On top of all that we run an All Stars Programme for children, so are busy on all fronts”.
Old Catton Cricket Club Chairman, Barry Prime
The OCCC Chairman continued, “One thing, however, that we could do with more of is - players, of all ages, skill and gender and we would be pleased to welcome you to this family-orientated Club”.
