Images of the Club

Drone Images

Yesterday (23rd. May 2018), the below images were taken at the Club by an outside company using a drone and they have kindly sent them to the Club as a gesture of thanks for using our location to capture images of the neighbouring area.

The images are truly stunning.

Views of the Club and Ground as never seen before.

They show how fortunate we are to have such a fine playing facility and grounds staff who maintain the Ground for players, spectators and Members and whom are ALL volunteers.

Our continued thanks go to them.

Enjoy the magnificent photographic images.

Death of Vice President member and former Player

Brian Hughes

It is with great sadness that I have been informed by his daughter, that Brian Hughes, a Vice President Member and former Player, died on May 20th.

He was living in Norfolk in recent years.

He was Deputy Head of Abbey High School in Kenilworth (whilst I and several Club members of my generation were at school there). We called him ‘Boz’. A great bloke but scary to us kids!

It is just over 50 years since he and his family moved to Kenilworth where he quickly became a member of Kenilworth Cricket Club, playing many matches for Club over a number of years and became a Club Stalwart. By all accounts he was a vicious in swinging and pacy bowler in his day.

Cricket was a lifelong interest of his and I am told he was still watching cricket on the TV shortly before he died.

I know that several ‘older’ members will know Brian well, some even worked with him. I have his daughter’s email address, if needed.

I have asked for details of his funeral which I will send out in due course.

I have passed on the Club’s condolences and thoughts to Brian’s family at this sad and difficult time for them.

At long last!!!

Signed Shirt given to Club from former Oversea’s Player

 

New addition to Clubhouse!!!!

 

Ryan Maron – our 1995 Overseas Player  met up with Club Members in August last year when touring as Assistant Coach of the West Indies cricket team who were touring England for their Test match and ODI series. He was Assistant Coach to the Afghanistan National team prior to that too. What an achievement. Well done Ryan. You will always have a special place in KCC hearts!

He met many old friends (and new ones) during his brief visit and very kindly gave the Club a signed shirt from the Windies team that has now been framed.

Thank you, buddy!
