3rd Annual Presidents Trophy
The 3rd Annual Presidents Trophy is taking place at the cricket club on Sunday 24th August.
The 4 competing teams are up on the club notice board and there are still some places available, so if you fancy a game or know someone who does, contact me and I will try to accommodate you.
We are going to start the cricket promptly at 1 pm so can I ask all players to arrive no later than 12:30 pm please.
As this is our premier club day of the year I would also ask if anyone can spare a few hours on the morning of the event to help clean and tidy the place. I also require help throughout the day with umpiring, scoring etc
The format is the same as the previous events in that each match is 10 overs a side with everyone except the keeper to bowl an over. Batsmen have to retire at 20 but can come back if necessary.
After the first 2 games and before the 3rd/4th place play off and final, we will have a tea interval. Tea is provided at a cost of £3 per person and is open to players and spectators alike. This year I am asking all players to ask their wives/partners/girlfriends/mothers to provide some form of home baking e.g cakes/scones/buns or failing that a box of Mr Kiplings as a contribution to the tea.
After the cricket we have arranged our semi-resident DJ Steve Diamond to provide us with entertainment from 7pm on wards and if there is enough enthusiasm I will try and arrange a BBQ for the evening.
I hope you all enjoy what I’m sure will be a fabulous day.
