2019 was an exciting and busy year for WSMCC, as the club hosted numerous events, and enjoyed success on the field with promotion for the 2nd team and mulitple league and cup wins within the youth section
The senior teams all enjoyed good seasons, with the 1st team maintaining their spot in WEPL 2 and the 2nd team earning promotion from Division 3, whilst there were mid-table finishes for the 3rd and 4th teams and more development for the young 5th team.
Promoted 2nd XI
There were 9 hundreds scored across the senior section, with the highest score being registered by Nick Ollerenshaw, who scored 141* for the 5th team. Jason Neave scored the most runs, with 484, with other batting highlights including a hundred for club pro Peter Trego, and a hundred for 15 year old John Fleming for the 3rd team.
On the bowling front, there were 6 five wicket hauls taken, with the best figures going to Sam Goodhew, who took 6-8 for the 2nds. The highest wicket taker was Jamie Dance with 33, closely followed by Matt Kearsey (30), Goodhew (29) and George Bemand (28).
One of the highlights of the year came on the final day of the season. With promotion and relegation on the line, the 1st and 2nd teams both came through, with the 2nd team winning handsomly to secure promotion, whilst the 1st team also securing a dramatic win in the last over to guarantee WEPL 2 cricket for next season. With the 3rd and 5th teams also winning, it made for a fantastic day for the club, with the celebrations going well into the night.

An exciting season for the senior section, and lots to be positive about as we look forward towards 2020.
