Sunday 16th July - Presidents Day - Presidents XI Versus the Club - first ball at 2:00 PM
The bar will be open from Midday so if you fancy an early ale and a spot of lunch then come and join us before this 40 over game begins which promises to be an enthralling inter-club contest. Please support your president Paul Jenkins who has you know has put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into the upkeep of the ground! Lunch and tea will be available to all specators for a small fee and don't forget to bring enough change for the raffle at Tea Time!

We welcome back Barry Hainsworth (of Bickley Park CC Fame) and his invitational team for what will be at least their 7th or 8th cricket week contest against OWCC as we get the weekday games off to relatively gentle start with a 40 over game.
Tuesday 18th July - Club XI Versus Upminster CC XI - first ball at 2:00 PM
Upminster will be heading over the Dartford Crossing for a game in what will be their fourth consecutive season of playing in "the week" it promises to be a very socialable affair and we are looking forward welcoming them back in this afternoon game.
Wednesday 19th July - Club XI Versus Old Olavians XI - first ball at 11:30 AM
This year's game has been moved from the traditional Friday slot to the midpoint of the week and we expect it to be as competitive and enjoyable as ever as Brian Cantle's team of club cricketers join us for what should be an all day match.
Thursday 20th July - Club XI Versus Surrey Legends XI - first ball at 11:30 AM
In a new game for the club, a selection of Surrey's past professional cricketers (organised by the incoming Old Wilsonians Association president, Neil Kendrick) will be playing against us. Further details on that team and the structure for the day will be announced very soon.
