Keynsham Cricket Club on the up

IN the winter months and early parts of spring, Keynsham Cricket Club has seen a huge uplift on and off the field of play.

We have carried out huge renovation works inside and outside of the Frank Taylor Memorial Ground with the aim of making it more inclusive.

Our junior and senior sections have played numerous fixtures and we have a newly formed women’s team, who train and play on Sunday afternoons.

On the field, our senior section has made a positive start, and with new overseas player Raj Biswa we have a real star to catch the spectators’ eyes.

The 1st XI have played three fixtures, winning two and losing one. Notable performances have come from Will Burston (106), Raj Biswa (68 and 51) and Ben Ackland (59) as well as captain Tom Bancroft’s 84 against Bath CC.

The 2nd XI have started their season in fine form, recording two wins from two league games.

The 3rd XI have come close in two defeats, with the 4th XI playing and winning their only fixture thus far due to weather abandonments.

With many of our players being brought into the game from neighbouring schools Chandag, Saltford and Wellsway, it’s a fantastic advert for local talent.

Our junior section is ever expanding, so it won’t be long before the next batch of promising cricketers flourish through to the senior sides, as many have done and are doing so this season.

Come along and watch some cricket every night of the week! Please visit Keynsham Cricket Club on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to keep updated.
