Busy weekend! Final preparations for the Clubhouse & grounds were undertaken throughout the week for the pending refurbished bar opening weekend.
Grounds are looking in good fettle for the early season and the playing surface is in excellent condition – A lot of hard work by our Groundsmen & helpers.
The inter-club game on Saturday was competitive with everyone getting a bowl & bat. A break for teas and to cheer on the horses in the Grand National enjoyed by over fifty people (players & supporters). The sweepstake was won by Rob with prizes awarded to punters with placed horses as well.
The players returned to the pitch in chilly and dry weather to finish.
Celebrations followed as the refurbished bar was officially opened by our President Alan Eardley, champagne flowed and the Joules beer was supped!
On Sunday we welcomed Hodnet & Peplow CC for a friendly game. The game was played in good spirits with tricky weather conditions – Cold and blustery wind with showers interrupting the game. Kyle leading Norton to victory hitting a century, scoring 111 runs.
Thank you to Hodnet & Peplow CC for the pre-season warm up match and for taking advantage of our newly refurbished bar after the game…
