Academy Clinch Back to Back Titles
2016-09-04 13:13:00

Season 2016 might have ended in two draws for Jason and his talented Academy squad but over 4 months of league cricket they displayed a wonderful array of cricketing skills.  Both individually and as a team.  Its been a story of swagger at times playing some breath taking cricket but also doing the hard work and digging in when needing to.  Like at bottom club Lindfield who's opening pace attack had us pinned down for 90 mins.  George and Liam stuck to their task that afternoon to calmly steer the team to victory. 

There are no superstars in this squad just talented lads who individually have all stepped up to produce 12 league wins from 18 starts.  Its a case of doing the simple things correctly most of the time, allowing batters to bat with freedom, bowlers to produce and working hard in the field.  Skipper Jason Robinson has produced a winning mentality with-in this squad and thoroughly deserve to pick up the Sussex Prem 2XI title again.


Jason Robinson  


We caught up with Jason who said ' the main aim of this squad is to produce future Nomad 1st team players and it's very pleasing that Mason Liam and Adam have stepped up to 1st team level this season'  As to the title he explained ' we have had a younger squad this season so it's fantastic to have won back to back league championships.  We will be aiming to go again next season with the same philosophy, looking at our youth section over winter nets to establish who might be ready to join the Nomad academy set up for 2017'

So the message to all our Colts is to work hard at your game and there is a definite pathway to 1st team cricket here at Preston Nomads Cricket Club. Our Academy is proving a real success !

Team Spirit and Ethos proves a Winner in the Mid Sussex Plate Final
2016-08-30 23:27:37
Our wonderful home facility  played  proud host to the Mid Sussex Stoner League Plate yesterday and our youngsters stepped up to the big occasion v Div one Champs Balcombe CC.  Skipper David Symes promptly lost the toss and his team were invited to bat.  But that didn't phase our young batting line up one bit, why would it on your own patch.   George Read (34) and in particular Michael English, who rubber stamped a wonderful season with 64, got the inns off to a flyer. Then Toby Shepperson , who must be in the running for the most improved player, scored a nice half century.   The inns was further enhanced when Toby Glover smashed eight fours on route to 63 wonderful runs.  At 249 for 6 off the allotted 40 things were looking good.


David  our popular 3rd team captain


Balcombe never really got going and again it was our youth who made the difference.  George Mercer, who is having blinding debut adults season (and I am proud to say my 2015 Colt of the Season) and Liam O'Brien helped themselves to three wickets a piece.  Justin and the skipper bowled very well late on as the visitors fell to 148 all out.

After picking up the Trophy Symes told me '  I was very proud of the team spirit and ethos shown out there.  We were outstanding with the bat as the inns started quickly and then both Toby's created a winning score.  The fielding was tight as we backed the bowlers well.  George was on the money while Liam was very quick. A very pleasing day in the office.  We have had a chat and Toby Glover is our man of the match'     As to the Mid Sussex Stoner awards night he explained ' yeah, with the 4s getting promotion and us winning this it should be a great night out !

A huge congratulations to our Third Team.  You guys have had a top season.
