Carsons & Mangotsfield prepare for new season

CARSONS and Mangotsfield Cricket Club members have re-elected Andy King as Chair and Sam Brayley as first team captain.

During the annual meeting at Pomphrey Hill towards the end of last year there were changes for the other teams: Harry Ravenscroft is taking over the 2nd team, with Jake Lane and Cam Lippiatt now in charge of the 3rd team.

John Douglass has moved to run the 4th team.

Preparations are underway for the start of the 2024 cricket season as the first team prepares for Division 5 of the Bristol & District league, having won promotion last year.

The club’s indoor net sessions start at the end of the January, with outdoor nets commencing in early April at Pomphrey Hill. The club will be coached again outdoors by Damian Forder.

There will be junior training commencing at the end of February and the club will also be running the All Stars scheme for under-7s and our own programme for under 9s.

The club would like to hear from parents of boys and girls who are keen to take their first steps in cricket.

We are also interested to hear from any companies who may be interested in sponsoring the club.

Any new players interested in joining Carsons and Mangotsfield Cricket Club, either at adult or junior level, or companies interested in sponsoring the club should email either or
