Jeremy takes his side to Bexley CC
2016-04-21 23:02:13
The ECB National Cup takes some winning.  But perhaps one of the hardest things to achieve is getting through the first round!

Nomads kick off their competitive 2016 season with the traditional ECB curtain raiser against Bexley CC on Sunday (1pm start).  Set against the back drop of rusty cricket skills and that early season chill factor it will be a pretty tough day for all 22 players.  However the reward for the winners is knowing that your ECB campaign is up and running.   Jeremy's team have done very well in the last three years beating Bickley Park in 2013, Bexley at home in 2014 and Tunbridge Wells last season.


Bexley cc play their home matches at Manor Way which looks to be an imposing ground to visit.  The club are a powerhouse of Kent club cricket boasting 6 Saturday league teams.   They won 11 league games in 2015 but were very disappointing in this going out to Brighton and Hove in the 2nd round. Chris (nugget) Grammer scoring a neat 40 that day.  It's impossible for me to give any indication as to current form or who might play. I will say that Bexley cc will be looking to progress so that marks them out as a real handful!


Having spoken with Jeremy this evening he said ' we have had a very good preseason especially with out tour to Caribbean. Availability for this game has been good so we travel in confident mood with an excellent team. Obviously we do not know much about these guys but that adds to the excitement of the 1st round.  Hopefully we can put together a solid team performance!'


Sunday really does reflect an exciting start to the season and we will bring the action via twitter through the day. If your not going please stay tuned.  If you are the postcode is DA5 3QG and we will see you there.


I am sure the club will join me in wishing Jeremy and his team all the luck in Kent. Lets hope its the start of something very special.
