Greenies is one of the most progressive cricket clubs in Cayman, which is why they have a lot of plans for next year.
Club president Simon Wetherell said: ‘We had our AGM two weeks ago and the key figures were all re-elected in their positions, namely Tom Stephens as captain of the Firsts, Dickie Thomas the captain of the Seconds, and I retained the presidency.
‘Now we are in the process of getting ready for the new season and will be doing a fun day on New Years Day at Smith Road Oval, with a game of mixed cricket like we did last year.
‘Next year I am going to be heavily involved with ladies cricket and the Cayman Islands Cricket Association plans to start a ladies competition (of which I was recently appointed to the Competitions Committee) and the Greenies will be organising a ladies team to help kick start the competition.
‘We would like to try and encourage any ladies that would be interested in playing to join the Greenies for this mixed day and see if they would like to start playing cricket in the future.’
Greenies held their inaugural carnival cricket, six-a-side competition last week and that was a big success, even though their best player – a dog – did not get selected despite best bowling figures in the canine pro leagues.
