Cricket season starts…… rain arrives!

On the first weekend of competitive cricket, shock the rain returned. The 2nd team fixture at home to Endon CC 2nd X1 fell victim to the weather without a ball bowled. The 1st team manged to play a revised/reduced over game away at Alsager CC, coming away with a brilliant 9 wicket win, thanks to 50 not out for both Jack Furnival and Alex Thorley.

Next weekend the 1st team are at home to Oakamoor CC, with the 2nd team away at Oakamoor CC 2nd X1. Both games start at 1pm. Please come along to support and use our fantstic bar facilities.

Cricket back with a bang……..

The re-opening of the Clubhouse, along with the first game of cricket in a very long time, could not have gone any better! Many thanks to Chris Green, Richard Wakelin and Roly Tavernor for running the clubhouse over the weekend. The locals and the cricketers were clearly very keen to get back to some sort of normality and have a drink or 2!

The cricket on the pitch was fantastic, 2 teams of players, an intra club 40 over game was played very competitively, keenly but as always in the right spirit. The bonus was we were all in (socially distancing of course) the bar for 6pm!!!!

The league fixtures start on Saturday 18th July, they are on the website now. Please go to the Fixtures/Results section of the website.

Congratulations to this weeks winner of the Bonus Ball Prize Draw, Saturday 11th July 2020, S Jefferies. Well done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
