So another season ends at Edenside with the 1st XI bringing the curtain down on Saturday with a two wicket win over Workington, which complimented an outstanding final day of summer.
A superb Gin Festival and a memorable Presentation Evening saw Carlisle Cricket Club at its very best! The people, the place and the cricket is what makes Edenside such an outstanding venue.
On the field we've had success with Beast's army steamrollering their way to an Eden Valley Cup and League double – unprecedented, what a season!
Our U19s became NatWest T20 Cumbria Champions and will defend the title in the newly sponsored Vitality T20 tournament, early in the new season. A thoroughly deserved Final's Day win on a drizzly Sunday afternoon back in June.
Our other teams too have had excellent seasons, both at junior and senior level.
A fine testament to the outstanding coaching team at Edenside. Following the introduction of All Stars cricket in 2017 we doubled our commitment this year with a sixteen week programme – an amazing sight every Saturday morning.
Congratulations to all involved, the future of the club is looking bright!
None of the above would happen without a ground to play on.
Reedy, Matthew, Tricky and co do an outstanding job and get through an amazing amount of work, much of it unseen but all of it greatly appreciated. Similarly with our hard working General Committee and on your behalf I thank them all, led by Chairman, Mike Rayson.
Finally, as the sun sets on another season, we thank the team captains and players who have entertained us throughout 2018, a memorable year.
We have a number of events planned to help us through to spring 2019 so keep an eye on the website and media pages.
The Club Dinner will again start the season off at the end of March.
Winter well and thank you for your support during the season.
