Great Drama in the Women’s Softball League 2019!!

Great Drama in the Women’s Softball League 2019!!

On Tuesday the 23rd of July we had the final round of our first ever Women’s Softball League! There were 5 rounds of fixtures in 5 weeks at 5 different grounds. Which included games at Long Eaton, Shipley Hall, Denby, Duffield and the final round was held at Belper Amateurs.

The league got off to a rough start with 2 rained off rounds of fixtures that were subsequently re-arranged for later dates. We eventually got going on yet another rainy day at Long Eaton, but all the players were very keen to play, so we got the games on!

Thankfully all the other fixtures went ahead without any rain and each week we had some really close and well fought matches. Going into the final week, there were 3 teams tied at the top of the table, Duffield, Shipley Hall and Belper Amateurs.

It was a very hot evening for the final round of fixture at Belper Amateurs, perfect for cricket. There were 3 matches to start the evening which included must win games for Duffield (vs Ilkeston Rutland) and Belper Amateurs (vs Denby). The match on pitch 3 was between Long Eaton and Belper Meadows. Surprisingly, all 3 games were extremely close, with only a few runs separating the team on all 3 pitches. Both Belper Amateurs and Meadows as well as Duffield were victorious. Meaning that Belper Amateurs and Duffield set the pace at the top of the league. Shipley Hall however, still had a game to play.

The 2nd lot of matches on the night involved Long Eaton vs Denby, both sides looking for their first wins of the campaign and a crunch match between Shipley Hall and Belper Meadows. Shipley were looking to join Duffield and Amateurs on 15 points at the top of the table. Belper Meadows were looking to finish with a win and end up 2nd in the table.

On pitch 2 Long Eaton overcame a competitive Denby side to get their first win in the league. On pitch 1, Shipley set Meadows 74 to win, which they managed to chase down in the final pair! This meant Shipley were unable to reach the 15 point mark! This is how the table looked after all the games had been played…….

It was decided that Duffield and Belper Amateurs would have a ‘Super Over’ to decide the winner of the league! Just like in the World Cup Final!

Duffield won the toss and elected to bowl first. Belper Amateurs posted 24 from their over, a competitive score. Duffield ran very well and hit a couple of boundaries in the first 5 balls which left them with 5 to win off the last ball! Up stepped Sonja Ljubojevic, she hit a 6 over the hedge towards the pavilion!!! What a way to win the super and with it, the league for Duffield!!

A huge thanks to all clubs who took part, we hope you all enjoyed it, thanks to all the clubs who hosted a round of fixtures and put on some food and drink for the players. Finally, thanks to all the team organisers who worked tirelessly to ensure they got a team of 8 players out each week!

Congratulations again to Duffield on winning the league! We hope to see some of you at our festivals later on in the summer!

DCB Reward & Recognition Programme 2019!!

DCB Reward & Recognition Programme 2019

Clubs are now able to make nominations for the Derbyshire Cricket Board Reward & Recognition (R & R) Programme.

The programme comprises the NatWest OSCA’s (Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards), the DCB Groundsmanship Award, All Stars Awards & Coach Awards.

Awards are done on a County basis and clubs located outside Derbyshire should link into their own county awards.

 IMG 7347

The six NatWest OSCAs nomination categories for 2019 are as follows:

Heartbeat of the Club –  I’m convinced that every club in Derbyshire has someone in this category (and probably more than one!!)

The special volunteer that your club simply couldn’t do without, often the roles they carry out are behind the scenes.

They often undertake a number of different roles, and are always there to lend a hand. 

Lifetime Achiever – Recreational cricket is dependent upon the dedication of volunteers who have put a lifetime of devoted service to the game.

They are that special person who has made an outstanding difference to their cricket club, community, league or board over many years.

Young Volunteer – As I travel around Derbyshire I never cease to be amazed at the number of young volunteers involved in volunteering, please recognise them.

This award is designed to highlight and show the fantastic contribution that young volunteers can make within the game.

Note: there are two awards in this category one for age group 14 to 18 and one for age group 19 to 25.

The Most Inspiring & Diverse Cricket Offer – A new award for this year designed to recognise the huge range of diversity in the game.

This award is designed to highlight a club, league or community organisation that offers member led products, programmes and events that encourage participation from all members of their community. 

Innovation and pushing the boundaries are to be rewarded here and we want to recognise growth within the game.

Pro-Active Leadership in Cricket – Another new award to recognise the importance of leadership in the changing landscape of cricket.

This award is designed to highlight and show the essential contribution that proactive leadership can make within the Club, Leagues, Officiating, Community or County Organisation's. 

We want to recognise those individuals who are providing vision and direction in growing the game and reaching into new markets.

 

In addition nominations are also welcomed for groundsmen.

Groundsmanship –

Is for those who have made a difference to the cause and development of groundsmanship in the County and/ or at their club.

The nomination can be for someone who has given long service or someone who has made a real difference in a short period of time.

 

Further information in the various categories is included on the nomination form.

There is no doubt in my mind that volunteers sit at the very heart of the game, in simple terms the grass roots game could not survive without their efforts.

The aim of the DCB R & R programme is to recognise and reward the amazing contribution they make to cricket in Derbyshire.

To make a nomination please complete the attached nomination form and return by email to mick.glenn@dcbcricket.com

DCB Reward and Recognition Nomination Form 2019

The R & R programme provides an ideal opportunity for saying thank you to our volunteers for the incredible work they do so please get those nominations in.

I’d particularly encourage you to consider those who have not been nominated previously.

The timeline for this is quite tight and so I am asking for nominations to be with me as soon as possible and by  at the latest.

Any questions please get in touch.
