Tuesday, March 4


On the eve of the AGM, Paul and myself are delighted to inform you that TSJCC’s brand new website is now up and running!! Go and take a look!!


We have been working hard on creating a website that is not only user friendly, informative and entertaining, but that will also give us greater communication to the local and wider community as a whole so as to give greater encouragement for prospective new TSJers and give our events such as 20/20’s, Car Boots sales etc some extra advertisement!

Within the new website you will find:

Latest News
Message Board*
Events Calendar
Player Profiles**
100 Clubs Applications
Maps & Directions

* To be able to post on the message board you will be required to setup an account and login. Whomever we have email addresses for, Paul and myself have registered your accounts and sent you an email with your usernames and passwords on so you can log on straight away and begin posting. For those of you who have not received an email from us then simply go onto the message board, click ‘Register’ and follow the instructions.

Once accounts have been activated you may like you go onto the ‘Profile’ section in your account and personalise your account.

The message board accounts also feature ‘Private Messaging’ (PM’s) which is a useful internal messaging system which is viewable only between yourself and the specified reciprocate(s).

Please be aware guys that although the PM’s are internal and hidden, the general message board is a public domain and is viewable by any tom, dick or harry. Remember, potential young TSJers may be browsing so let’s make sure we give across the correct and accurate image of our club!!

** We have set up a ‘Player Profile’ section which we need your help in completing. Over the first few weeks we will be getting some photos to go on there but would appreciate if players could email us with a little lowdown of yourselves and any memorable moments during your cricketing days.

We would welcome any feedback with regards to the site, anything you like, don’t like or any features that could be added!! Remember, it’s your site!!

If you have any problems or would like any help to familiarise yourself with the Message Board then do not hesitate to contact Paul or myself!!

We hope you like it, enjoy!!

Fixtures and New website

Dan, A brand spanking new TSJ website is being produced at the moment, which is why things such as the 2nds fixtures haven't yet made it on here.

Hoping to have it ready for launch at the AGM!

to clarify (2)

Did anyone else spot Danny's missing apostrophe??

Yes - you were right - it was the contracted dont, which should of course have read - don't
(the apostrophe replacing the missing 'o')

There was also the 'j' in jebb - all names begin with capital letters of course.

(and for those without internet access, your tea time punctuation test will be in the next newsletter)

to clarify

I assume Danny means 'Why post the Old Trafford details on the site', as opposed to 'Why not post.....' as anything posted on the site is of no use to players without web access.

That's why the dates are also printed in the newsletter, along with the AGM (or AMG for Rowdy) agenda, last year's minutes, accounts and both 1st and 2nd team fixtures - all for players and non-players who have no internet access.

A Welsh language version is available by request, as is an enlarged print version for persons with visual impairment while we are also looking at newsletters printed on red paper for the forthcoming season for dyslexics. For anyone who will be unable to view this message because they have no internet access, it too will be reproduced in full in the next newsletter along with an apostrophe update.

And thanks Dan for giving us a pre-season opportunity to indulge in some English language banter! ;)

Two points?

Why not post the details of the cricket at Old Trafford on the site? why not print them in the newsletter? Players Like the jebbs dont have access to the internet!

2nd XI Fixtures :When will they be put on the website??

London Marathon

As the new cricket season approaches, for me another big event also draws dauntingly close: The London Marathon

On Sunday 13th April I will be lining up with thousands of others to take on the 26.2mile route around london.

I am running the marathon in aid of an amazing charity, Get Kids Going!.

Get Kids Going! helps disabled children take part in sport by providing specialist sports wheelchairs, sports grants and year round support. They can then compete in marathons, triathlons, tennis, athletics, skiing, rugby, basketball etc. With your help, many could become Paralympic champions and world record holders and generally make their lives so much more fulfilled!

I am aiming to raise over £1000 for Get Kids Going! and need as much help as i can get in acheiving that target so any sponsorship is welcome!

To sponsor me for the marathon simply visit my justgiving website on

AGM - Captaincy Nominations


The AGM has been confirmed for Greenmount CC on Tuesday March 4th at 7.30 for 8pm. We would like to confirm the process for those folk who wish to stand for captaincy this year. Expressions of interest should be sent to Clive BEFORE THE NIGHT - you can of course nominate yourself, there's no need to get someone to do it for you.

Regarding the delection of all club officials, a change to the constitution was made at the EGM last year so that if people are unable to attend they may still be nominated or elected into an official position.

Extra Pre-Season Nets at Old Trafford

Hi folks,

On behalf of the committee, Clive has arranged 4 sessions of nets to be held at Old Trafford on the following four Tuesdays in April - 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd. At each session we will have the use of 2 nets for an hour. One will be a standard "batter and bowler" and the other will have the presence of a bowling machine and a professional coach.

We will be having 6 slots of 10 minutes with the batting coach, and those 6 players will also get 10 minutes in the bowler net. We would like anyone who is interested in attending 1 or more of these sessions to let Clive know and the places will be allocated FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. We are also open to people coming along to have a bowl for the hour - in first class facilities - but obviously we're limited to 6 batters a week.

The cost will be approx 13 pounds per session for those batting and 5 pounds for those who want to come along and bowl.

Please note that this is NOT a replacement for club nets which will be running on the Thursdays of those weeks. If you are interested, please email Clive at tsjcc@aol.com as soon as possible, or call him directly.
