Latest Chairman's Blog - Nigel Champion
Congratulations to our under 15 colts side who won an indoor event recently, well done, a fantastic achievement. They have now started their outdoor season.
The outdoor season is now also under way for the senior sides but unfortunately didn't start as we would have wanted with a comprehensive defeat for the Saturday side who were beaten by a very good Hawkinge team, despite an excellent knock by Darren McGoldrick, and then the Sunday fixture was rained off. Let's hope next weekend see's all fixtures being played and some positive results.
It is anticipated that the groundwork rota will be up this week, so please take a moment to check when your slot is. Please also remember to swap with someone else if you cannot make it. The assistance from members on the rota is so important. Equally important is getting names to provide a tea, so again could I please ask you to put your name down for one of the available dates; it would be great to get the rota filled, then the captains can concentrate on the cricket.
A reminder to check the noticeboard about some social events coming up in the next few weeks, including a game V The Hoodie, a quiz evening and boot fair.
To finish, I wanted to make some special mentions. Firstly to Duncan and Jo who got married recently; many congratulations to you both and best wishes for a long, healthy and happy life together.
A couple who have had a long and happy life together is Colin and Joan Mercer, who recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary, which is fantastic. It was a double celebration as it was also Joan's birthday. Here's to many happy returns and years together.
Finally well done to Lynette who completed the London Marathon today in a very creditable time of 5 hours 39 minutes. Well done Lynette, a super achievement.
