Try to perform and get my place fixed in top order. Not like I havent performed before but been stuck at bottom position due to poor captaincy. Had word with management and asked for more opportunities. Given opportunity would like to score as my runs as i can hopefully my first 100.

700+ league runs
1500 total runs
Not to be a dick Sundays (tbf I do this anywya but continue to not be a dick but I did do it for two seaosns before realising Sunday runs mean feck all so its judt being a dick)   and essentially not bash any bowler around and if the oppo arent great.. retire by giving it away when on 50 or just let others bat.
Actually bat myself Sundays rather than give myself a TFC each week
Not play a single 2020 (nearly always get called up for the semi/finals)
Ensure the Sunday team doesnt smash any team about the park as no one enjoys that, so never score more than 230 off 40 overs as thats no fun. Nice 180-220 each week
Not bowl a single ball in games
Not say a single word at, to or about the oppo in any game

Most of all, enjoy the game.

Im trying a new technique out this season so itll be interesting to see if it helps or not. Im happy if I have a bad season just to see.

Main one is to get out and play,,,its been a long winter!

But,, be nice to win the league again, and definitely the cup this year
Batting, those that know me, know I dont do too bad with that,,,would be nice to get the oca batting award,,but I throw my wicket away too easily,,still not got a thousand runs in a season, only got 8 teams in our div so not a lot of games to go at, but still no excuse
Bowling,,,no chance this year,,,way too old to be bowling hundred overs a season again,,,,might turn my arm over, if our lot are struggling

Cant bowl anymore, so just to bat. Bat, bat and bat, to stay in long enough to actually enjoy it!

Bat for as long as possible and score some runs after disappointing and restricted 2018.

As I've been re-elected Captain, my aims are not to annoy either the oppo or my own team with my decision making!  Should be fine, it's not my first rodeo...

We had a disaster last year, got relegated and lost our 2 opening bowlers. This has meant I've been pulled off the scrapheap to bowl a decent amount for the first time since 2013, which should be interesting, just hope the body holds up. Will do whatever job is needed with the bat, batted from top to bottom last season, top scores were as a grinding opener and last 10 hacker!! Been appointed midweek skipper, hoping to encourage a few more youngsters from the village to help out the Saturday team and the club overall. I'm

Main goal for me will be get my hands on our batting trophy (best runs x avg) as I missed out on it last season despite being leading run scorer, so more consistency is the aim - too many cheap dismissals last year. Secondary to that and possibly a bit of a pipe dream... I'm after a double ton.

I'd like to bowl more after getting pressed into service as emergency keeper a lot last season, found it hard to get into rhythm the past couple of seasons.
Got a text from our skipper today... sounds like our two of our better quicks have been poached by a bigger club. Will be focusing on my bowling a bit more for the rest of preseason!

Similar to @edge we have potentially lost 3 quicks now rather than two, so hopefully my overs will go up! We've lost one to London club/fiancee, one to the Royal Navy and apparently one to either Cuckfield or East Grinstead but not certain about that. Still got three seamers and two/three spinners so a decent attack anyway.

I don't set personal targets, cricket is a team game and personal goals distract people from that fundamental fact. I see so many people lose their simple enjoyment of playing the game because they're too busy obsessing over their personal targets.

You're running around in a field with your mates for a few hours. None off us are pros, the runs and wickets don't actually count for anything in the long run. Once the game  is finished, they're totally irrelevant forever.

More appropriate targets would be to play your part in making the club, the league and the wider game an inclusive welcoming environment in which everyone feels welcome regardless of age, background or ability level.

This is my first full season back in the game for 37 years, so my goals are suitably sized:
-achieve a batting average above ten.
-if get asked to do some bowling, not embaress myself.
-get fit.
-have fun.
-meet some people.
