Bramhall Cricket Club Player News‏

Dear Member,

After retaining our 1st X1 Premier League status with a strong end to an otherwise disappointing season, we are looking to recapture the form that saw us finish 4th in 2014.

The club are delighted to announce that Danny and Emma Lamb have committed to stay at Bramhall in 2016, and both will hope to build on their successes this year.

Danny has been rewarded for his great form with the bat (755 league runs @ 47) and some vital and often fiery spells with the ball (30 wickets @ 27), by being offered a scholarship contract with Lancashire for the 2015/16 season, meaning that he will now be training regularly with the 1st team squad. This is a fantastic achievement, and we hope to see Danny build on his strong performances for Bramhall and Lancashire 2nd X1 by taking the next step in his development.

Emma will continue in the Lancashire Academy, and has recently been named in the England Women’s academy pathway squad. Emma made several impressive contributions to the 1st team at Bramhall last season, including a maiden half century at Marple, and her progression in the Women’s game also continues to be very strong.

Australian Dale McKay has also committed to return to Bramhall in 2016 after his first season with the club was unfortunately cut short. Dale plays for Hawkesbury CC in the Sydney Grade competition, and is a stand out performer in arguably the strongest club league in the world. Dale previously played for Formby CC in the Liverpool Competition, and helped himself to 1,042 league runs @ 57.9 in the 2014 season. Dale will add much needed stability to the top order and some great experience to the dressing room, and will also provide top quality coaching, particularly to the junior players at the club.

Added to this, we have been very lucky to secure the services of two new players with big reputations in local cricket who we hope will give us the impetus to step up a level in the Premier League in 2016.

Adam Wilde will join the top order as a heavy scoring batsman from Cheadle Hulme. Adam will bring great experience with him, and has consistently been one of the top scorers in division one over the years. Adam will bring a competitive edge to the line-up, and will hope to replicate his form in the Premier League

Also joining from Cheadle Hulme is all-rounder Iftikhar Naseer. Iftikhar is an explosive top order batsman, who has taken many attacks apart in his time in the Cheshire County League with both Cheadle Hulme and Christleton. He is also a very reliable bowler, and will add an extra dimension to our bowling attack.

We wish both players well and we are sure all members will make them feel welcome at the club.

Best Wishes,
Bramhall C.C.

Bramhall CC – 2015 AGM, Awards Night and Getting Involved‏

Dear Member,

Just to remind you that Friday 13th November sees the Bramhall Cricket Club AGM and Awards Night taking place in the clubhouse. The bar will be open from 7pm, with the main event starting at 7.30pm.

As ever, we encourage all members to attend, in order to have your say in how the club is run and to be kept up to date with what’s been happening over the last 12 months.

This year, the club is specifically looking to expand its volunteer base, to help improve the way in which the club operates. Attached is a list of the Committee and non-Committee roles which we are hoping to fill with a range of names from across the club. In addition, we have a real focus on the areas commercial, social and sponsorship. There are a number of non-Committee teams being established to look more carefully at these areas.

If you are interested in putting your name forward for any position on the attached list, or by assisting in any other way, please contact Chairman Ian Milligan on or Secretary Andy Reynolds on as soon as possible.

We look forward to your support with the running of the club, and to our AGM & Awards Night on November 13th.

Best Wishes,

Bramhall C.C.

Bramhall CC “old boy” makes his First Class Debut‏

Dear Member,

We thought you might like to know that Travis Dean, our overseas player from 2012, has made his First Class debut today for Victoria Bushrangers against Queensland in the Sheffield Shield fixture at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Travis, who scored 600+ runs and took 20 wickets for the Beavers 3 seasons ago, has scored heavily for his 1st grade side Footscray Edgewater near Melbourne over the past few seasons. He was taken on by Victoria, and scored an impressive 217* for their Futures League side last week, leading to his first team call up.

Queensland have batted first and are currently looking strong, so Travis will probably get to the crease on Thursday. The fixture started at 2pm local time, and uses a pink ball to encourage afternoon & evening crowd attendance.

Travis said yesterday that he appreciates all the support he has received form everyone at Bramhall, and that his time with the Beavers had no doubt helped to get his to his current position.

We wish him the best of luck, and you can keep an eye on for further scores, match and team news.

Now, who’s going to be our next professional?!

Best Wishes,

Bramhall C.C.

Bramhall Cricket Club – Bar Staff‏

Club Bar Staff

Alongside our main bar person Stephanie, we have occasional need for other bar staff to support club bookings (birthdays, christenings, etc) which are usually at a weekend. During summer, this is often done by some of our younger players who might be home from university. But it would be helpful to have a few more people to draw on who are looking to earn some extra cash. If you have a family member who would be interested, please ask them to contact Ian Milligan on 07946 110953 or

The next event where staff are required is an 80th birthday this Saturday, 2.30 to 9.30

Best Wishes,

Bramhall C.C.
