Latest Chairman's Blog - Nigel Champion
I suppose we shouldn't have been surprised but incredibly the last two games of the season were again lost as a result of the opposition cancelling. I cannot remember a season whereby so many matches were lost in this way. It is a real concern and is indicative of the difficulties some clubs are having in terms of being able to field a team for matches. I hope that this year was just a one-off in this regard. This really does seem to have been a stop start season.
This partly explains why it seems incredible that the season has finished already. Often at this time of year the weather tells us that it's time to pack up cricket, however, this year we are still enjoying fine weather, albeit that the number of leaves on the ground tells us autumn is upon us.
I do hope that the matches that have been played have given you all enjoyment; overall the club has enjoyed a number of successes and there have been a number of good individual performances.
We now look forward to celebrating those at the annual dinner and if you haven't already done so I would encourage you to book your places by sending the form back to Paul T.
End of season ground work will take place this Saturday (the 27th September), as always the more people that are available to help the easier that is and the quicker the work will be completed, as such I would ask that all members make every effort to attend.
A special mention to Tony, his helpers, colts and parents for a super presentation evening on Friday 19th September; well done everyone.
A couple of reminders for you; firstly now that the season has finished the pavilion will be open most Friday evenings (commencing Friday 3rd October) for those wishing to come along and have a drink and a catch up and secondly the last boot fair of the year will take place on Sunday 5th October and I again encourage all members to give up a couple of hours of their time to assist at this event.
