2018 cricket is here! after some lovely weather in the days preceding Saturday it was rather inevitable that Saturday was a bit more seasonable as we welcomed the 2018 season.
The 1st XI, fresh from their success in 2017 looked to start their season with a friendly against Bath CC 2nd XI and after a wet start the 2017 form looked to continue as Frome made 301-9 odd their 40 overs.
Following Tea Bath struggled to make an impact being dismissed for 159 giving Frome a good workout.
The 2nd Xi made the short trip to Kilmington & Stourton for their first outing of 2018 and after losing the toss the bowlers got quickly into their stride bowling K & S out for 66, The returning Jonathon Dredge and stalwart Andrew Stonell then knocked off the required runs inside 19 overs.
On Monday evening the Hawks got their league campaign underway at nearby Westbury narrowly losing out to a far more experienced under 11 side. This was some of the boys first ever taste of hard ball league cricket and credit must go to them and coach Joe Smart.
This weekend sees the 1st XI at home to Warminster in their final friendly with a start time of 12 Noon while the 2nd XI host Burnham on Sea on Sunday, 1.30pm start.
