Frampton Cotterell eye triple promotion

Frampton Cotterell Cricket Club’s first and second XI both went through July unbeaten and find themselves in the promotion zones in their divisions, while a good finish to the season for the third XI will give them a chance of promotion as well.

Frampton Cotterell Cricket Club’s first and second XI both went through July unbeaten and find themselves in the promotion zones in their divisions, while a good finish to the season for the third XI will give them a chance of promotion as well.

The stand-out performance of the month came from first-team bowler Ife Malik who returned excellent bowling figures of 7 for 30.

A club cap is awarded to any player who scores a century, takes 7 wickets or claims a hat-trick, and Malik became the third player this season to receive the award, alongside Sam Coleman (120 not out) and James Tomlinson (102).

Club captain Jimmy Dickinson puts the club’s current success down to a strong team spirit:

 “We try to place an emphasis on enjoyment. There is a relaxed atmosphere at The Fram which allows our players to play with freedom”. 

“We are also seeing several younger - and a couple of older - members fulfilling their promise this season”. 

“The club achieved a double promotion in 2000 and we are quietly hoping that this year we can make that a triple”.

The first XI had the chance to overtake the league leaders on July 27th but rain forced the abandonment with Frampton well on top.
