Chris Leathley, Cornwall Cricket Board Director presented Jamie Stevens, PZCC groundsman with the prestigious 2016 Groundsman of the Year award at Cornwall Groundsman's Association AGM.

Jamie has been maintaining the cricket square for many years at Penzance and last season undertook his new role of maintaining the whole of the ground, including the outfield. His hardword and dedication has seen a dramatic improvement in the playing area which is now recognised as one of, if not the, best playing surfaces in the country.

As a result of his work the club has been allocated a three day county fixture in July, the first for many years and he has now been formally acknowledged by the county with this award.

Penzance CC's inaugural Big Bash took place last Sunday, and was a spectacular success!

It's sure to be an annual feature in the Cornish Cricketing calendar.

The sun shone, as did the cricket.

Four great teams battled it out to become the first BB Champions, with the Tamar Tigers, captained by Paul Smith, from Werrington CC, victorious over the Penwith Pirates, captained by Greg Smith, from Penzance CC, in the final. The other two teams, Kernow Super Kings and Duchy Dynamite also put in solid and entertaining performances.

It was a great family day, with people from all over the county enjoying the great hospitality St Clare provided-hope to see you all next year!! #clubcountycommunity

A £1,000 reward is being offered following a second case of vandalism at Penzance Cricket Club at St Clare.

At around 11pm on Monday evening, someone in a vehicle drove over the cricket pitch, causing damage to the square.

This followed a similar incident 10 days earlier, at around 9.45pm on Thursday, May 26, when the square was also targeted by someone driving a vehicle.

Club president Godfrey Adams said: "We were hoping that the first incident was just a one-off but then it happened again.

"Fortunately, on this second occasion, the pitch was a lot firmer than it had been and the damage was not too extreme.

"However, in certain circumstances someone doing this could cause enough damage to prevent us playing at the weekend."

Mr Adams said that anyone with any information leading to the identification could be offered a reward of £1,000; Mr Adams can be contacted on 07971 064383.

It has been another historic week in the renaissance of Penzance Cricket Club, with the club's first team celebrating their first league victory at St Just in over three decades and wins for all three senior teams and Evening League XI within the past seven days.

And there was more good news for the progressive St Clare club with the completion of their new all-weather outdoor cricket nets.

After a near two-year grant funding application process, Sport England finally agreed to fund the new £60,000 three bay cricket nets and, despite delays due to the poor weather over the winter, the nets are now completed and were used for the first time by the club's youth section on Monday evening.

Club secretary Brian Richards said: "A formal opening of the nets will take place in the next few weeks, but in the meantime the club wish to thank Sport England, the England and Wales Cricket Board, Penzance Town Council and Verde Sports for their support in this project.

"This new facility will play a crucial role in developing the club's new Cricket Academy, headed by former Essex and Derbyshire County Cricket Club player Greg Smith.

"The purpose of the Cricket Academy is to develop the cricketing skills, team and work ethic of local youngsters and to integrate them into its youth section for both boys and girls aged 8 to 18. It will also identify the elite players that can eventually take the next step up to Premier League cricket, county cricket and beyond."

This season the club has already fielded teams at Under 11 and Under 13 age group, the first for three years, and the women's team have also played two matches to date in the Cornwall Cricket League for the first time.

Any youngsters who would like to play for one of the Penzance Cricket Club youth teams, are welcome to attend the dedicated youth practice sessions on Monday evenings from 6pm to 7.30pm.

Penzance Cricket Club is a Clubmark accredited Focus club, assuring parents of a safe and welcoming environment to practice and play cricket, with the emphasis on the club's three C's philosophy: 'Club, County, Community'.
