Cricket Writers’ Club plays down the line online

From Mark Baldwin
Chairman, Cricket Writers’ Club

Cricket Writers' Club honours board
The CWC’s honours board at Trent Bridge. Their new website is a little more 21st century

After much hard work by the CWC’s website sub-committee, and in particular Marcus Hook, I am pleased to confirm that the club’s improved and re-designed website is now live.

I would urge you to bookmark it and to use it regularly, both as a source of club information and to see what your peers are up to.

One of the main features of the new website is a Twitter feed, on the homepage, which collates what our full members are saying. It is the only place on the internet where all Cricket Writers’ Club full members are gathered together in one great Twitterfest – so please check it out!

There are also dedicated county pages – some are live now, the remainder will be added as soon as possible – which again contains dedicated Twitter feeds which exclusively feature county writers and the relevant county club.

Launching a new and improved website has been a priority for the CWC committee since the start of the year; it is not just a vital tool for us as a club but it is also an important asset if we are to attract more sponsors. And the more sponsorship we get, the more we can do to fund or subsidise club events and, in particular, the annual lunch.

Many thanks, therefore, to the website sub-committee of William Powell, Marcus Hook, Andrew McGlashan and Graham Morris. The new design is excellent, and I am expecting the new-look site to be used far more regularly by our members, and sponsors.
