Highest Ever Finish
Swanage CC concluded the season with their highest ever finish in the Dorset Premier League narrowly missing out on top spot to Broadstone. The last weekend of cricket saw the 1st XI beat Dorchester who came up short in the run race, finishing 42 runs behind the Swan's total of 221.
2nd XI Champions
The 2nd XI ended their season champions of Div 5, it has been an excellent spell for the team with its mix of up and coming youth and some more senior players. Congratulations to all those who have participated over the season and the club looks forward to their campaigns in 2018.

It has been another great season for the Swanage Youth cricket with our numbers passing the 100 mark for the first time. We were able to run our first ever girls team to add to the 7 sides from U8s to U15s. There was great success throughout the age groups from older juniors making the transition to adult cricket to the U8s playing in their first ever matches. Some brilliant individual performances along with with real team efforts meant everyone had a part to play. The U9s won their league for the second year running whilst the U8s have reached the Plate Final which sadly due to the weather will be played at the beginning of next season.
Thanks to everyone involved for their help and support throughout the year. It all begins again in early October with indoor training - dates and times to follow in the near future.

After the historic, but cold, evening back in May when our first ever girl's team travelled to Winton it was the turn of Swanage to host their first home game. In a double first our Women's team also welcomed Winton so there were two games running at the same time. The Girls gave a hugely improved performance only losing by 27 runs - see the full report in the Youth Results section.
After their first outing at the Dorset Women and Girl's tournament in Wimborne we'd arranged a friendly with Winton Women. Captain Tyler won the toss and decided to bowl first. Winton got off to a good start as their openers ran well between the wickets and struck a number of boundaries. Good overs from Kayleigh and Tracy kept the score down before debutant Katherine carried on the good work. A wicket from Tyler meant the scoring had slowed right down and that Swanage were well in the match. Swanage's bowling really improved second time around with Ena only conceding 3 runs and Jo just 4. A run out in Holly's over meant the score after 12 overs was 282. A wicket from Katherine with the last ball of the innings left Winton on 308 - 3 from their 16 overs.
Lou(6) and Jo(12) on her debut got Swanage off to a good start with some great running and a couple of boundaries. Holly and Ena found runs hard to come by but benefited from lots of wides and no balls as Swanage reached 236 at the half way point. Kayleigh and Tracy kept the score building leaving Katherine and Tyler to round off the innings. Some great running and boundary hitting got Swanage close to the Winton total as they ended on 285 - 3 just 23 runs short of victory. Katherine top scored on 22 including 3 fours and a six.
Winton 308 - 2
Swanage 285 - 3
Winton won by 23 runs
Practice is on Thursday evenings from 6:15pm onwards
