CATTISTOCK & SYMENE CRICKET CLUB
The Dorset Cricket Board is running a competition to be called the ‘Thank you NHS league’. There will be 66 teams taking part in 11 regional mini leagues.
Five regions will have A and B sections and after the sections have been completed (5 matches), teams will play a final match against the team in the same position, i.e. the winner of section A versus the winner of section B within their respective regional zone. This is just a ‘one off’ competition to give clubs some competitive cricket and there will be no promotion or relegation.
The Cattistock & Symene fixtures for this competition are as follows:
Saturday August 1st Martinstown Home
Saturday August 8th Sherborne Away
Saturday August 15th Portland R. T. Home
Saturday August 22nd Bere Regis Away
Saturday August 29th Dorchester Home
There will also be a match on September 5th, but the opposition will not be known until the mini leagues have been completed. The match will be against one of the following teams: Bournemouth 2nds, Broadstone, Poole Town, Parley, Wimborne or Christchurch.

There has been a Cricket Club in Cattistock since before the wars. All that time the playing field has always been kept in superb condition, with all the work being done then at it is now, by the club’s willing supporters from across the village. And, through local funding, in the 1980’s the original pavilion was replaced with the existing building.
As well as always being a very friendly club to join, the Cattistock Cricket teams have been very successful over the years. They have won the Regional village trophy a few times, as well as the Dorset League and KO Cup.
Throughout the winter months the players maintain their good form with net practice, which this year is being held at Perrott Hill School, Crewkerne.
So, if you feel like watching some good cricket, in a beautiful setting, or maybe trying hand with bat or ball, why not contact the club and get some details, they would delighted to hear from you.
