County Captains address ~ Matt Hewitt

I'd like to thank all who played in this season's Derbyshire Trophy campaign which started off with a terrific win over Hunts but ended disappointingly with 4 consecutive defeats. Highlights for me as captain were welcoming back some March Town players, as well as giving debuts to Steve & Matthew Glover and Stewart Maguire - all of whom will undoubtedly be good additions to strengthen the outdoor Newton Trophy team. 
Also waiting in the wings to make his debut outdoors is Micky Beart from March Town.
If you know anyone who would be interested in playing county games outdoors please let me know, or give them my details: 07546 067156, matthewhewitt31@gmail.com.
There is also a WhatsApp group for the Newton Trophy and details can be found on our Facebook page.
The 'Get Together' game is on 7th May at 1pm, at March Town BC and I urge everyone to attend if at all possible.
I honestly believe that if everyone makes themselves available so I can pick a strong squad each game, we could go close this season. We are much stronger outdoors than we are indoors, and only play in the Newton Trophy - not the Adams.
So, thank you for your support indoors and outdoors in previous seasons... but I need it to continue!
