Latest Chairman's Blog - Nigel Champion
Incredibly the final league games for both the 1st and 2nd teams ended with the opposition conceding, as seems to have been the case for many games this year. The situation is a concern because we all want to play cricket and obviously need opposition teams to be able to do so. I cannot remember a season whereby we lost so many games due to the opposition calling off. We are aware that many clubs are struggling but hope they work through their difficulties.
All was not lost as the 2 league teams played each other in a game played in the spirit of cricket. Having watched a good deal of the game, there was some good cricket played. In the end, despite a good score by the 2nd team who batted, the game was won by the 1st team who got the required runs with little alarm.
With just a couple of weeks to go, let's hope the weather holds up and that we don't have any more cancellations.
Some reminders for you; firstly the Colts presentation evening will be on Friday 19th September. Having attended these events for the last few years, it is an enjoyable evening and I hope to see you there. End of season groundwork will take place 27th September; as always there is quite a lot to do to close things down so I would urge members to help. It has often been said but it really is a case of the more people, the easier it is. Our last boot fair is due to take place on Sunday 5th October and again I would like to ask that members give up some of their time to help. With the last event having been vastly impacted by rain, we do need this event to be a success. Finally the annual dinner takes place on Saturday 25th October. After a successful event last year, we are returning to The Kennington and I'm sure it will be another great evening. Please return your form to Paul T.
I hope to see you soon.
