September’s Phoenix 100 Club Draw

And the lucky numbers drawn are……..


September’s Phoenix 100 Club Monthly draw was made today which I self-videoed (not that I will win an Oscar for it!) and has been posted onto the Club’s Facebook Members page which can be viewed by following the below link, for those who do not use Social Media: 
As we have sadly not had a social event so far this year where the bi-annual draw is usually made in the first half of the 100 Club year, the September Draw was made for the £100, £50 and £30 prizes instead.
The lucky numbers plucked out of the barrel by my digits, were as follows: Well done to them!
£100 – 43 – Alan Pearson
£50    – 55 – Judy Wood
£30    – 26 – Jeff Stanners
As we have yet to hold a Social Event this year, the complimentary drink will be rolled over to the next event (whenever, it can take place). If our Winter’s Social Event does not take place due to the current restrictions, (which seems very likely due to the recent change in them for the next 6 months), then that complimentary drink will also be rolled over to the next event, too, as well.
I will consider making the second bi-annual draw for our year in the week before Xmas as an early Xmas present to three lucky people. So, at our next event and get together there will be at least two, maybe three complimentary drinks for you, should you attend it, at least as part of your Phoenix 100 Club membership. Watch this space!
Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS, on the lucky winners on having their numbers plucked out of the barrel in this month’s draw and for your continued support of the Phoenix 100 Club.

A win rounds the season off, nicely, but Cricket is the overall winner!

Sunday XI v. Leek Wootton


40 overs a side friendly




Kenilworth 269-5 (40 overs) beat Leek Wootton 162-10 (39 overs) by 107 runs.


On the Club’s final day of this year’s most strange and shortened cricket season, Kenilworth’s Sunday XI entertained neighbours, Leek Wootton, in a 40 overs a side friendly match in front of a large crowd of supporters from both Clubs enjoying the last rays of the summer sun and closed the season off with a 107 run win following their defeat at Leek Wootton’s hands two weeks earlier, to share the local derby honours for September.

Kenilworth posted a stiff 269-5 off their 40 overs with openers, Dan Horner and Henry Curran, sharing in a 1st wicket partnership of 91 before Curran fell for 35 (4 x 4) and then Horner teamed up with Adam Huxford for the second wicket and they put on a further 96. Horner departed after making 67 (8 x 4) and then Huxford took control and made 85 (11 x 4). Youngster, Shyaan Imam, then added 25 towards the end of the innings. Leek Wootton’s Garman took 2-46, Lota 2-52 and Ward 1-25.

Replying, Leek Wootton’s openers put on 66 for their 1st wicket, with Elliott Haynes-Sorrell making 21 and Somerville 40. Numbers 3 and 4, Budd added a further 40 and Jenkins 15 but no other batsmen reached double figures afterwards and their run chase fell away once they were out. For Kenilworth, Sam Leach took 3-33, Tom Skinner 2-20 whilst there was a wicket each for youngsters James Sparks, Dan Roden and for Huxford and Horner with a run out accounting for the other wicket to fall, whilst Curran snaffled two outfield catches as the visitors were bowled out in 39 overs for 162.

A good game of well supported and enjoyable cricket brought the curtain down on a good and friendly season for both Clubs.

The Club thanks all those players, supporters and visitors who came to the Ground this season, to those who helped get the games on and those behind the scenes. Certainly, a season not to forget but to remember! One fortunately to even have actually taken place with some good performances and achievements from the players and most importantly, from the youngsters. Cricket was the Winner!

Height Restrictor


To advise all Members and bona fide guests to the Club, a Height Restrictor has now been installed at the Club Entrance as a deterrent for any unwanted visitors from attending the Club and Ground.

It has a two metre clearance, so should not affect the majority of vehicles.

The Height Restrictor can be unlocked and swung open onto a back post that has also been installed.
