Are you looking to play a summer sport this year? The cricket season is just around the corner starting Saturday October 6.



My name is Kristin and I play for St Albans Cricket Club and run St Albans Phoenix, a men's 40 over Saturday afternoon social cricket team. My club St Albans is on the lookout for players of all ages (girls, women & men 15+) and skills. They are holding an Open Day at the St Albans Cricket Club clubrooms based beside Hagley Oval on Saturday September 28 from 3:15pm (wet or dry) where they will welcome and register all new players to the club.



I am after players to help me rebuild my Phoenix side from the ashes of last season. I'm open to first-time players through to those with more experience who want to play a relaxed and semi-competitive friendly afternoon game of sport.


Leave a message here with the tag #StAlbansPhoenix and I will get back to you. Alternatively check out the website www.stalbanscricket.co.nz... and register there.
