President Pullo's Log - May 2020 - You Can't Keep CCC Down...

Hello all,

Well a couple of weeks on and I hope you are still all well and looking after yourselves. 

Who knows what Boris will say Sunday on the breaking of the lockdown but I sense progress and that large chair outside the Pavillion at CCC for my large bottom is clearing its throat to call me... soon. 

In the meantime the very innovative players of CCC have training and coaching with all kinds of homemade training equipment for all age groups and abilities. I, or course, am beyond help but I am confident we are developing a squad of super players from the gardens of Surrey!!

And not satisfied with that next we are viewing what is tantamount to full back garden test matches as everyone from Dad to the cat trooping out to the wicket for their turn at the crease... incredible.

Then we move to the virtual season, starts with all four teams involved, and no availability problems here? No way, hundreds of them, could I get a game? Forget it Pullo, sit down.

But seriously great inputs and efforts by all, can't remember who won, who cares, performance seemed to depend on who had the pen and scorebook, some vivid imaginations at work.

Then last Friday the selection for the CPL. I think this is a fantastic competition that the Club should take full credit for. Great days out with big crowds, amosphere, and fantastic cricket. I am convinced this has played a great part in the Club's development on the field with players of all standards learning from each other. 

This year's selections will, I am sure, lead to thrilling Sunday afternoon entertainment at Grove Road. Who's going to win?

Much talk of the young Bourne Stars led by new skipper, cheeky chappy Luke Robertson, can they?

I am a Grove man with our strong record for success led by The Hobbler, we must be favourites, will I play? Sit down Pullo.

Stay safe, see you soon.
