The early arrivals turned up at ODP to typical early season weather - rain teaming down and a healthy wind. However, the training session started with 8 of the first team and 15 or so colts including our very own Vansh Jani, Will Pike and Alex Zotov (or in highly imaginative cricketing terms: "Vanshi", "Wills" and "Zotters").
Wello put two mixed teams through their paces with a series of competitive fielding drills - of course for points. Strangely Jimmy and Griff, the team captains, had different views of the cumulative scores!!
The competition bizarrely finished with Griff trying to hit a six right handed. Despite confessing to being a right handed golfer he did not make a sweet enough connection, and Jimmy's team ran out winners.
The club will thrive when the colts section is tightly integrated with the rest of the club, and colts players are flowing through to take senior team places. Initiatives like this one can only help to strengthen RCC!! Well done to everyone who showed up on a rainy April morning to be rewarded by nets in glorious sunshine. Everyone had a lot of fun and many will be on "nickname terms" for the season ahead. Bring on the cricket.
