NOT all of the hard work at a successful cricket club takes place on the pitch.

Hannah Clatworthy has held a demanding role with Carsons and Mangotsfield CC as its child welfare officer since 2017, as membership has expanded.

She has supported, along with husband Phil, her three boys, who all play for the club, often being the scorer as well as being the first to arrive at games and the last to leave.

During June she was instrumental in collating the information to maintain the club’s Clubmark status.

Hannah's work behind the scenes was recognised when she was named Gloucestershire Cricket’s volunteer of the month for June.

On the pitch results also continue to be positive. The first team are sitting 4th in a tight race for promotion. Under-17 player Tom King scored his maiden 1st team century in a 6-run win over league leaders Bristol Aces.

The 2nd and 3rd teams also top their respective divisions. The second team are in a race to finish in the top spot with Nailsea, who they beat in a rain-affected match.

The third team are being challenged by Hanham and Hambrook for promotion. Against Hambrook in the top-of-the-table clash, Carsons and Mangotsfield were bowled out for 92. But the bowlers took revenge, with James Ward bowling 7 overs and taking 4 for 7 in the process, to bowl Hambrook out for 78. 

Success has also been achieved by the club’s U9 team, who have won the Frenchay Cricket Festival. This is a great recognition for all the hard work put in by Tim Ravenscroft, and the other coaches.
