With the cricket season now into its’ second half, Rockhampton can reflect on a successful campaign to date with the First XI having won 7 of the first 11 matches to sit well up the WEPL 2 Glos/Wilts league table. 

The club has also had another good run in the National Village Knockout and won the Gloucestershire group before defeating the Hampshire winners, Liphook, by just 1 run in the first national round. This put them through to the last 16 in the country with dreams of another appearance at Lords, but these were dashed when another away trip, to Oxfordshire winners Aston Rowant, resulted in a crushing 8 wicket defeat.

 At the beginning of July, Rockhampton also hosted 3 day game between Gloucestershire 2nd’s and Ireland ‘A’, with good weather and over 1100 runs scored. Another Gloucestershire 2nd’s game is being hosted from 29 – 31 August. 

Rockhampton is now running four adult sides on a Saturday and has a record youth membership in 2017, but new members are always welcome. Although the cricket season will be drawing to a close in September, winter coaching is now being planned so please contact Paul Williams on 07895 156689 if you are interested in joining.
