John Procajlo (Australia) 2010 Season
2010 The Year of JP
The English summer of 2010 provided me with the opportunity to represent the Foxton Cricket Club as their overseas player. I can honestly say that the six months I spent with the club were the most enjoyable days of my life. From the moment I arrived on the shores of England, Ed Carpenter (Secretary & Treasurer) & the rest of the team, made me feel extremely welcome.
I have memories from my time with Foxton that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Foxton is ideally positioned for any overseas player a short five minute drive to beautiful Cambridge & a short forty minute train ride to London. The facilities that were provided to me by Foxton allowed me to further enhance and develop my game, in a very enjoyable environment. Matt Gray’s tireless work on the Foxes home track provides the opportunity to play cricket on the best ground in the Cambridge area. The social & off field side of Foxton Cricket club also certainly doesn’t disappoint. A very proud & encouraging village always made me feel welcome and apart of the big Foxton family. The outstanding local pub (The white horse) was a consent during the summer & the majority of the side spent endless nights their enjoying each other’s company, and celebrating memorable victories.
I can say with no hesitation that any overseas player could not find a better club in all of England to represent. Both Matt Gray, Ed Carpenter & the rest of Foxton treated me like one of them and for that I am eternally grateful. You will challenge yourself every Saturday against some of the best local & international cricketers in the Cambridge region & then by night you will be swept away by the local social fun & festivities.
Wishing the Foxes all the best in the coming years,
