Pre-Season 2017

Indoor sessions this Spring have been unbelievably well attended and there is a real energy around the club right now.  Ground work has started in earnest, both on the square and on the outfield.  The clubhouse has been given a fresh lick of paint, draught beer is on its way (after a 6 year absence!), and (finally) proper gates have been installed on the two main entrances. On the team front, we're delighted to have combined our club with the Cherhill C.C. team who so sadly lost their ground in November last year.  The Cherhill team will continue their league cricket as Avebury II in Division 8 of the league, and we've combined all our mid-week fixtures (of which there are many). A big welcome to all of the players joining the enlarged club - including many members of the maverick T20 outfit The Swindon Dynamos, who also now play at Avebury. We've had a number of new players join the club during the Winter, and hope we can fit everyone in to the various formats this year.  With 84 fixture on the fixture list (excluding any junior tournaments), we hope people have the required stamina.
