Death of Club member

Paul Gutteridge

It is with great sadness that the Club has been advised that Vice President member, Paul Gutteridge, sadly died on Tuesday 18th. September 2018 at Myton Hospice.

Paul was a regular attendee and visitor to the Club supporting the matches and social events for many years.  He was a popular and well respected Club member and will be sorely missed. There are so many happy and pleasurable memories of such a fine and good humoured gentleman by those that came into contact with him and knew him.

It is a very sad loss.

The Club passes on its sincere condolences and its thoughts to his wife, Brenda, and the rest of his family at this very sad and difficult time for them.



Paul’s funeral will take place at Canley Crematorium, Canley, Coventry at 12.00 noon on Wednesday 10th. October 2018.

A special mention of thanks goes to Hannah and Gemma who kept the players fed with over 120 rolls being made throughout the day.

A playing special mention goes to Elliott, too, for being involved in 6 run outs on the day (………..all while he was batting)!!

Match reports for Saturday

Reports will be posted on Sunday at some stage


Saturday’s match reports will be posted on Sunday.


However, in brief:


1st XI  – WIN 

They move into second place with one match remaining for the final day runners up spot in the Division next Saturday but anyone of three sides can achieve it  – the others being Highway Spartans and Fillongley – the latter that the  1st XI side beat today. Going to be nervy. Side will take on Nether Whitacre in last match!


2nd XI – LOSE

The side post just over 200 chasing but fall short against Leamington Khalsa after their sterling efforts.


3rd XI – WIN

The 3rds end their season with a win but relegation is confirmed to Division 7 of the Cotswold Hills Cricket League but deny opponents Winchcombe promotion to Division 5 as a result.
