RACE NIGHT MEETING ABANDONED (for now)

UPDATE – RACE NIGHT – SATURDAY 7th. APRIL

Due to there being no cricket now this weekend due to a waterlogged racecourse, the Race Night Meeting has now been abandoned as well. (see post below for images of the Ground)

 

The Race Night will be re-arranged for a Saturday Night in May or June following a League match at the Club.

 

The Club has not taken this decision lightly and is somewhat disappointed following all the hard work already undertaken by several members. However, it is felt for the event to be a success and for funds to be raised for the upkeep of the Ground and for the benefit of the cancer charity/Myton Hospice, in memory of Neil Goodman, the Club needs the cricket match and the Social event to be well supported.

 

The Club thanks those who had indicated their attendance this Saturday and to those who had supported the event by purchasing horses and jockeys. Those purchases will be valid for the re-arranged date.

 

Wet start to the 2018 season

This weekend’s  Cricket  is CANCELLED

It is with regret that the Heavens have won.

The ground is terribly waterlogged.

It will not be fit for any cricket this weekend despite all the hard work that has been undertaken in recent weeks by the Groundstaff. In fact, even yesterday the team were out on the (then dry-ish) Ground and were even cutting wickets in preparation for the curtain raiser to the season this Saturday.

Sadly, the over night rain came and has now flooded the ground as the water table is so high and  water has settled on the ground as the below images show.

As a result, the opening match of the 2018 season this Saturday v. Neil Goodman’s Old Milfieldians side has sadly  been cancelled.

Disappointment is an understatement.

 

 

 

2018 season starts soon!

10 days to go!

The 2018 Cricket season kicks off on Saturday 7th. April.

Geoff and his team have been very busy on the Ground preparing the outfield and the wicket square whilst the working parties have been tidying up around the edges. WELL DONE and THANKS all that have helped out.

This season will be final one of the views of the fields that surround the Club before the Housing development changes the aspect forever. Enjoy and cherish the sight whilst you can.
