[By Taku] We, as the first team, would like to officially invite all Senior members and the Club 100 for a first team brunch/ lunch over the next few weekends. We have a few new faces in our team and would like to take the opportunity to welcome them and introduce them to the members. The plan is to begin the season on a positive note and this interaction with the players and members is a very important step. A chance for us to connect and communicate with each other as a club and further strengthen our club culture.
This season is a massive one for the First team, we will definitely need the support and backing of all the ACC Members. After just celebrating our centenary year and with covid restrictions lifted, we will be hoping to see the ground full during our home games. The team will be welcoming a couple of South African cricketers this season, Thomas Hobson and Robin Smith.
Alongside these players we also have a few new players, who have recently joined the club namely Robert Ackermann, Fergus Wegener, Zackary Mitchell, Adriaan Verbeek and Elyas Meakhel. All in all it is shaping up to be an exciting cricket season.
We are looking forward to seeing all your faces this Saturday, for the last preseason game against Eindhoven Cricket Club. The game should start at 11:00 and it will be a 50 over game. Though we will not be at full strength, I am sure it will be a good game.
PS: More information on the First Team Brunch/Lunch will be published once dates have been confirmed and invitations sent out.
Lastly to the players who have left us this season, we say thank you for your effort and contributions throughout the last two seasons. The ‘Eindhoven Boys’ Kiran Hosur, Ramesh Babu and Antony Napoleon we say go well and good luck for the new season in Eindhoven. To Sahil Kothari ‘Mr Utrecht’ we wish you the best in your new chapter as player/coach at Hermes DVS.
