The weather’s becoming kinder, the days are stretching out and the mercury is edging upwards.
It can mean but one thing.
Cricket is emerging from darkened sports halls and indoor nets out into the relative glare of south west London’s late spring.
At Spencer, Fieldview is ready to welcome the noisy, kinetic, exuberant throng of Sunday mornings.
The 2018 season is very nearly upon us.
So much has gone right for the club, the whole club, over the last few years. Expansion, new grounds, silverware, promotions, culture, you name it. But matching that, exceeding that, is a challenge everyone is passionate about taking up.
As seems to happen each year, we’re growing. More juniors, more girls, more focus on the disabled, more women’s cricket and now an established fifth team on Saturdays.
We’re a broad church, representative of the community in which we play a major role.
Why One Spencer? There’s no shame in being ambitious. We want to continue improving, continue enhancing what we deliver and what we offer. We had a huge amount of success on and off the field and we want to build on that in 2018.
And whilst we’re working tirelessly to be the number one cricket club in the area – providing an experience and a welcome to match that – we’re going to get there together. That means the active, engaged involvement of as many club members as possible – working to the same aims, in the same direction.
One Spencer is about being inclusive and exceptional – at the same time.We support each other. Senior members act as role models and are the source of inspiration and advice. Our juniors provide us with the energy, passion and a glimpse of our future.
We’re old and young; callow and experienced; male and female; the only colours that matter are the club’s. We’re unified because of a game we love, within a club whose behaviours, culture and values we live every day.
One Spencer – we’re all in. Together, with passion, purpose and pride.
