Having secured promotion from the G Division East to the F Division East in 2019 it was disappointing for the 3rds to not continue with their success in 2020 due to the Covid restrictions and cancellation of the league. The team was skippered successfully by long standing Bob Heaman who has stepped down from the role and passing the baton on to Jeremy Thompson (JT) and Phil Pennington as vice-captain.
The news that the league will return as normal for 2021 is an exciting prospect as the team look forward to playing competitive cricket once again. The 3rds are a mixed team from the old brigade right down to the youthful exuberance of the colts coming through the ranks. Whilst the step up to the new league will be challenging it also gives the team the opportunity to evolve their skills against new teams and push for promotion into the 2nds and hopefully the 1sts.
The 3rds are looking forward to the new season with the ambition of moving up to the D division East by the end of the season.
