An international blast from the past returns to the Club with his family

Douggie Marillier returns to the Club

 

Douglas Marillier with his Life Member award standing in front of one of his ODI shirts. He played 5 Tests and 48 ODI’s for Zimbabwe and was our overseas player for the 1998 and 1999 seasons.

 

Our former overseas player, Zimbabwean Douglas Marillier who played at the Club in our 1998 and 1999 seasons returned to visit us along with his wife Shellyann and his children Codie, Luke and Shaye tonight (16.12.2019) before they travel onto France for some Christmas skiing and was reunited with his friends and hosts from 20 years ago.

In 2000, Douggie went onto play international cricket for Zimbabwe and played 5 Test matches and 48 ODI’s for his country. A unique moment for our small Club.

As a result of these achievements, the Club appointed him a Life Member of the Club, the highest accolade that the Club can award. 

He also famously hit Glenn McGrath for two boundaries in Australia with scoop shot over his shoulders in one over, one of the first to ever do the shot and took his side to an unlikely win against India hitting a match winning unbeaten half century.

He later hit a century against Kenya in an ODI that earned him the Man of the Match.

Currently, there are only 6 other club members to have been given this award and status. He was presented with it (at long last!) with an engraved glass trophy by the Club Secretary, Andy Smith.

A great evening was had reminiscing and catching up and a great Sunam Balti House curry was served at the Club.

Housing Development Reserved Matters Application narrowly passed!

Planning Committee Chairman’s casting vote secures plans

 

At the Warwick District Council Planning Committee’s meeting on Wednesday 06.11.2019, the Reserved Matters for the Housing Development were GRANTED when the Chairman used his casting vote to vote in favour of the application, following the Planning Committee being tied at 4-4.

The Reserved Matters is the ‘nuts and bolts’ for the whole development  with the exact lay out, the building styles and designs etc.  decided upon. There were numerous matters raised (none of which affected the Cricket Club) that were debated.

The Club was not objecting to the Reserved Matters, as all our concerns had been clarified to our satisfaction prior to the meeting taking place.

The proposed development has now been formally adopted in accordance with the below plans.

Club achieves Clubmark re-Accreditation

CLUB ACHIEVES ITS CLUBMARK ACCREDITATION FOR 2019-2022

 

The Club is very pleased to announce that it has successfully achieved its Clubmark Accreditation from the ECB, for the period 2019-2022.

The re-accreditation is valid for 3 years and has taken 10 months of hard work with many hours being devoted to it, evidencing all areas of the Club, both on the field of play and off it, how the Club is administered and run, along with detailed aspects of the youth set up, coaching and its management.

Thanks go to the Hon. Secretary and to Jane Thomas for their sterling efforts and commitment with it, along with the other members who assisted in the process.
