Sawston Cricket Club took a unanimous decision at its recent AGM not to have a paid overseas or contracted player for 2015. The Club took this decision in the knowledge that it could have further ramifications in terms of 1st team strength. A number of last year's 1st team have now indicated their wish to move onto the next level (EAPL), and other clubs. We wish them well.
The Club canvassed opinion from its players who decided, by about 60-40, that they felt the Tucker Gardner League 2 offered the best option for our 1st Team cricket. It was felt would offer a decent standard for last year's 1st teamers, and a step up for our talented 2nd teamers but still giving an opportunity for some of our talented youngsters to perform at the highest level.
We must now thank the league management and Burwell, who have moved to TG 1, for their help in making this possible.
C'mon U Rams!

Although the Rams, Sawston Cricket Club, have been established since 1853 we consider ourselves to be a young and progressive Club.
We welcome new members to join our Junior and Senior sections. We field teams from under-10s through to under-15's and six senior sides. Adults play league cricket on Saturdays and Wednesday evenings. Friendlies and cup matches are played on Sundays. So whatever your personal standard we can find a team to match to your ability.
We have an active social scene with most activities based around our new pavilion and Club room.
As well as new players we are always on the look out for volunteers and social members.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
