number of old relationships rekindled in the bar at St Cross or the number of future riflemen convinced that actually they could call the Rifles their home. The Battalion Cricket Officers and our reps at RMAS did a brilliant job at funnelling new talent into the Club. We welcome specifi- cally Benedict Maciejewski, Ollie Dean, Warwick Forman and Will Rooney. With three Battalions committed to Ops and BATUS in 2019, we instead needed a core of regulars who committed early to play whenever they could. These included Henry Wootton, Teddy Walker, Edd Alexander, Theo Bossom and Matt O’Connor.
5 RIFLES continue to take their role as Cricket Battalion VERY seriously as was witnessed in the merciless dispatching of all opposition at the Inter Bn T20 Competition. Congratulations to them on retaining the Kenya Challenge Cup and also reaching the Army Major Units Semi Finals.
We must also thank Lt Col Gary McDade for serving as Club Chairman for 4 years who now hands over to Lt Col Mark Shercliffe. Best of luck to him and Annabelle as they move on to their next adventure.

The first fixture of the RCC season was a internal affair between two XIs loosely based around Past and Present. As you can see from the photo, it was gloriously sunny as usual at St Cross. This photo also nicely summarised Rifles Cricket. It shows 7 serving Rifles officers, 3 retired officers, 2 SNCOs, 1 friend of the Club who has become an honorary rifleman, the Navy opening bowler, an RMAS PO, a confirmed OCdt who first played Rifles Cricket with his father in his early teens and a bearded Tom Legge who may still be serving but we are not sure...
It is best not to dwell on the actual results from the 2019 season but we should thank the Fanta- sians and the Free Foresters who are two of our most welcome guests at St Cross and should come back every year. The absolute stand out individual performance of the season must go to Kevin McDelling who stretched even the most generous interpretation of Army T&S policy to travel from Edinburgh to play in nearly every match. He tops the batting and bowling averages followed by the Secretary at some distance.
Stats have never been a good measure of a Rifles CC season. Instead, we must think of the

subject to discuss with your children, but online safety is essential in this technology
Although your child might have little interest in social media, online gaming
can lead to talking to strangers online. If possible, disconnect your child’s games console from the internet so that they cannot play with people they do not know.
driven era. When discussing online safety, you should aim to inform your children rather than scare them with stories we hear in the press. A good place to start is to ask them which social networks they use/would like
to use and if they know how to make their profiles private. It is important to ensure that your child’s social profiles are private so that strangers cannot see pictures of them or what they post about. Most social platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and Tumblr have an age restriction in place so your child must be at least 13 to join.
A lot of information is requested on sites such as Facebook and they ask for details such as your hometown, school, mobile number, Birthday, nicknames and films/tv series that you want to watch. Filling out this information is not essential so try to discourage your children from filling this out as it makes it easier for someone to create a fake account with, what seems like, the same things in common.
You should also make certain that your child is not friends with people that they do
While it may seem tempting to ban your child from social media completely, it is not a viable option as your child may be pressured into creating a profile when with friends etc. It is better to have an open discussion with your children about social media as they
are more likely to come to you with any problems they incur online than if they know they will get in trouble for having a profile
as they are more likely to keep problems to themselves. You should also discuss with your children how to block people or report pictures/comments that people post if they feel they are harmful. This should make
them feel more comfortable and that they do not need to see things that are upsetting to them.
