Club vice Chair Tariq Aslam, said: “We’re very pleased to be sponsored by such a great local firm such as Blackhorse Estates and hope we can build on the relationship between the club and company in the future.” 

This new partnership has personal connections for both, as Blackhorse Estates CEO, Nahed Patel is an active member of Newham Cricket Club for Saturdays and is also the NCL Sunday 1st Team Captain, playing in the Premiership Division.

Resumption of outdoor sports

With the positive news regarding the announcement that outdoor sport can start on March the 29th. We thought it would be a good idea to contact our members to say we are working behind the scenes with our governing bodies to see what that announcement means for the 2021 season. We will release information to the members ASAP regarding how you can get back using your club within the guidelines given to us.

Ground prep days – 28 & 29 March 2020

Club members, the local community and local businesses are asked to help Newham Cricket Club get ready for the season ahead.

We need many pairs of hands to help with cleaning covers, nets, collecting rubbish etc. To say thank you there’s a BBQ and net session.

We also have a long list of specialist jobs that need doing including landscaping, decorating and car park marking. We would be really interested in hearing from local businesses that could help in return for free sponsorship at the club – message us for more details!
