It's an exciting time for Vinohrady CC as - after a few successful outings over the last couple of months - have decided to launch our second team in the CMKS T20 competition for the first time.
At the Vinohrady Committee meeting held at Olse on 2nd June, Stephen "Robbo" Roberts was voted in unanimously as the first Vinohrady CC 2nd XI Captain. On his appointment, Robbo shared:
"Thanks all and I am honoured to be given the challenge of captaining the Vinohrady 2XI in the forthcoming T20 league. I hope that in having two teams in this competition it will be a great platform to challenge for bringing home the trophy once again. It will give fringe players the chance to prove they deserve a place in the 1st XI. It can help us become the driving force in development of cricket in Prague/Czech Republic. Hopefully it can give people a chance to develop their own abilities whilst getting actual game time. Most importantly though we will be able to give those who want to have fun playing cricket the chance to do so.
If anybody would like to join me celebrating my appointment to 2XI captain I will be at the Zizkov Beer festival on Saturday.
Exciting times ahead for the club - please all join us in wishing Robbo and the newly formed 2nd XI all the very best for the season ahead.
President, Vinohrady Cricket Club
