• Clubhouse and Post Match News

    Posted by Andy Dale on 23 September 2021

    Club House News


    The Executive Committee has been doing some work on trying to resolve some of the issues on our outstanding clubhouse offer. 


    We have two elements that we have been working on namely: -


    1. Resolving the annual availability problems at Saints Cricket Club during the month of September and October


    2. A long-term solution at Moulton College (a further email will come out next week asking for volunteers to get involved with this project)


    Historically the Saints clubhouse has not been able to incorporate all 6 home fixtures or sometimes no teams whilst cricket is still being played and because of regular staff holidays. We have looked at a list of criteria and have applied these to several venues to resolve this issue. 


    • Food somewhere- league requirement

    • Alcohol plus drinks for those who want non-alcohol offers

    • Somewhere for social events

    • Somewhere to park and leave cars for away games

    • Being at the same place as a whole club

    • Somewhere the social fabric of the club comes together

    • Location not further than Birchfield Road 


    We have looked at four venues and shared this list with them, The Telegraph and Artichoke pubs in Moulton, Saints Cricket and Brixworth Cricket

    The Telegraph have said they are not interested, The Artichoke are but can only manage a few teams on a Saturday but are keen to work with us. The Saints will now accept all 6 home fixtures but only from 23rd October. Brixworth can accommodate all teams now.



    So we have decided to use Brixworth until 23rd October and will survey club members for a choice between continuing with Brixworth and returning to the Saints at that point. Post-match teas will be served 45 minutes after each game – Andy Ward will be providing them again.


    It will be great to have two offers for the club membership to select from.


    The address is Brixworth Cricket Club, Northampton Road NN6 9DQ. It is 3 miles away from the College and only takes 8 minutes to get there through Pitsford Village this is marginally closer than Saints clubhouse.


    They will be open and staffed from 12.30 when our first game ends and teas will be available from 45 minutes after the end of each fixture. They will stay open until 7.30pm. NHC members and families are welcome to stay as long as they want, in addition to the normal products from the bar free Tea and Coffee will be available.  Please enjoy the facilities and we hope to see you there. Returning teams from away games are welcome too.

  • Club Shop Shut for Redesign until August 4th

    Posted by Andy Dale on 30 July 2021

    The club shop is going to be closed after today, until 4th Aug.

    Our supplier is upgrading all their shops (they’ll be much easier to navigate and the delivery/collection options much clearer too).

    So when it reopens on 4th Aug, you should see a much smarter easier to navigate shop for Saints.

    Kind regards

  • Stick Amnesty for Schools

    Posted by Andy Dale on 7 July 2021

    We are running a "Hockey Stick Amnesty". We are supporting a Hockey Academy at Malcolm Arnold Academy starting in September and need good hockey sticks to support delivery of hockey in PE lessons. the typical quality of affordable hockey sticks available to schools is not good and any second hand sticks from clubs will help us produce more hockey players. If you have sticks that your children don't use anymore or any adult sticks size 34.5 or 36.5 could you leave them by the entrance to the pitch on the 10th 17th and 24th or give to Ant and Jack at Summer League?


    kind regards Andy
