Sharks Awards Ceremony Held

20 odd Sharks assembled at KBs place (with the big windows all open of course) to celebrate a fantastic season. Big winners were Asanka and Ibby who picked a bagful of trophies each, and yours truly was made a Life Member! Great to see everyone again. [Anton]

Chiba Sharks are 2021 Champions

The Sharks 1st XI swept aside the Tokyo falcons on a tricky turf wicket at SICG to claim the 2021 JCL1 Championship. Batting first, Sharks found the going tough but not as tough as Falcons! Great win guys [Anton]

Season to (Re-)Reconvene!

The Covid situation has finally calmed down sufficiently for cricketers across Kanto to get back on the field! We start off this Saturday 16 Oct with 2 Japan Cup matches! [Neel]

Thanks Ash and Neel – Our umpires

Many thanks to young guns Ashley Thurgate and Neel Date for taking care of our first umpiring commitment this term. They are overseeing Tigers vs Falcons in JCL3 at Sano 3. The complete Umpiring Schedule will be posted soon. [Anton]

Season Underway!

Both Sharks teams kicked off their campaigns over the weekend in wonderful April weather amid a backdrop of sakura trees. Both teams are yet to get a win on the board, but took plenty of positives from the opening day and are confident we will get better as the season moves ahead. [Neel]

Training Goes Well

A very hisashiburi return to the Akai nets allowed a handful of of Sharks to clear the cobwebs with a solid 3 hour session. Highlights included Ajeet’s very tidy batting, Marcus’ bullet tweakers and Hamid’s seam up assortment. Best of the lot – Seeing Dave back in Sharks kit. [Anton]

Welcome to Neel, our new Webmaster

This year we are very fortunate to have Neel at the controls of the website. He’ll be maintaining what is good and changing what isn’t. Thanks again Neel! [Anton]

Sign Up For September / October

Our sign ups for the business end of the season are currently up in the Forum. The Japan Cup is effectively over but the 1st XI need a good run to make the Semis and the 2nds need a miracle just to survive! [Anton]

August Sign Ups Available

The Season seems to be spluttering into life but who knows how long it might last. All of the sign ups for our August games are up in the Forum so help the Selectors by showing availability as early as possible. [Anton]

Thanks CT and MT

Appreciation goes to our first umpiring pair of the year, Thurgates Marcus and Chris. They took the long ride up to SICG to watch the teams valiantly try to soak up a lake with a couple of sponges but it wasn’t to be. Match cancelled. Many thanks anyway guys. [Anton]
