I’d like to welcome you all to Dorking Cricket Club. One of the oldest clubs in the UK. Our club.
For those that do not yet know me, I’m Dominic Kenway (Dom / DK)….your newly nominated Club President.
DCC has been my cricketing home club for 40+ years & I am genuinely honoured to hold this esteemed position, following in the footsteps of some of the clubs greats.
Firstly, a massive thank you to Steve Quinn for doing a sterling job in the role over the last few years.
The committee have been amazingly busy behind the scenes (as always), so a huge thank you to each of you.
They will share more details in the near future but here are some highlights:
• NETS improvement project – following the huge investment the club and members have made, the project to extend the nets area is progressing well.
• MADU – great news that Madu Zoysa has re-signed for coaching & playing duties for the 2024 season. DCC will also have more of his time than in previous years. Excellent news.
• WOMEN & GIRLs cricket – a special thank you to Sarah Billiald and her helpers for taking up the challenge of setting up Women’s & Girl’s cricket over the last 2 seasons. This has been a great success and looks to be going from strength to strength.
• JUNIOR section – it is great to see this going from strength to strength and I’m delighted that Toby Blood continues as Head of Junior cricket.
I am personally pleased to see we have a new Vice-President. Chris Pike has been, amongst other jobs, membership secretary for 10 years. Congratulations Bungle.
Additionally, huge thanks to Lisa Fownes-Walpole who has stepped down as Safeguarding Officer after countless years.
A full list of club representatives will be published soon.
Please look out for club announcements, get behind & support the committee in their plans to continually improve cricket and the club.
Thank you once again for your support, and here's to a bright and successful future for our club.
I will see you in the bar.
