Practice, Weekend Fixtures, A Pro and A Legend

The balls have been polished and the bats oiled. The pitches are being rolled as I type. New overseas pros have been unpacked and charged up. If you haven’t already, dust off your kit bag and get down to the PCC today for practice. Tom Makin, our pro for the season, has arrived and is raring to go. This afternoon’s practice, from 17h15 will be a middle on the bottom field. Following this, the T20 squad for this weekend will be announced. Additionally, we’ve got PCC 3rd team legend Jon “Johnny English” Orman visiting and he’s keen to test out the new bar team Erweeh & Alick (The Farmers). The firsts and fourths are both opening their season this weekend. The first side begin their season with the AMA T20 tournament on Saturday at Atlantis where they take on Milnerton and Yorkshire at 10h00 & 14h00 respectively. They then take on Northerns-Goodwood at NGCC at 14h00 on Sunday. The fourths kick off their season at home on the top oval against rivals Rondebosch, which always proves to be a good match. They start at 13h30 at PCC. If you can, and you’re not playing, please try and head to these venues and show your support. It’s a big week for the PCC! The season is finally upon us! Upcoming October...
