Veterans Match 30th August 2009
Sep 6, 2009, 12:09 pm


Veterans team photo back row right to left: Alex Frodsham, Richard Peacock, Ken Ward, Alan Pearson, Peter Rollinson, Michael Davidson, Steve Adams, Willy Clark. Front Row: Jim Peacock (capt), George Rogerson, John Brown, Lloyd Julien.

Jim Peacock brough his band of merry men back to their old patch to show off their skills. The vets won the toss that never was and decided to bat on a great track leaving the young guns out in the field trying to show the old gang that they were worthy members of the club.

Steve Adams showed he still had runs in him as he opened the batting, Alex Frodsham showed he still had all the skils as he was back to his old stomping ground as he had travelled up from Northants just for this game. Michael Davidson also known as bam bam for his stylish shots and Willy "One Step" Clark and Peter "Rubber Hips" Rollinson help push the score along with some powerful hitting.

Then came the young guns who eased passed the vets score with 15 year old Scott Maddison leading way top scoring before retiring to give other players a chance. The vets best bowlers was Alan "Skip" Pearson and Jim "The Hoover" Peacock who put the ball in the right spots to cause problems.

The vets suffered a number of hamstring injuries trying to run around like they used to do as they say you can take cricket out of the man but not the man out of cricket.

A great day was had by all especially in the bar afterwards talking about old times. Well done the vets it was great to see you back in your whites.  

End of Season Work
Aug 26, 2009, 6:03 pm

9:00am Saturday 19th September 2009 see's our club undertake our annual event of end of season cricket square renovation work.

Which includes scarfication, areation, seeding, fertilsing and 100 bags of Surrey loam to spread on the 15 strips on our square. Our groundsman needs support with the manual tasks, as usual we hope for a good turnout, remember the work we put in now pays dividends during the playing season.

As the saying goes "you only get out what you put in" so lets make the effort for our club. 

Veterans Match
Aug 23, 2009, 3:09 pm

Bank Holiday Sunday the 30th August see's our club play host to our retired members who will once again dust down their whites for this annual match against a Northern Select X1 who will be made up in the majority by our younger members.

This gives the olds a chance to show off their skills to our young guns, and also talk over the good old times. The game is scheduled to start at 1pm, the match being a 30 over game. The Veterans will be captianed by Jim Peacock and the young guns by their elder statesman Paul Milburn.

After the match as usual on a family day out we will have the barbecue on and the bar will be open.

This day is a way to keep in touch with our Vet's and just because they no longer play for the club it is important we keep in contact as they played an important part in our history and can continue to do so. 

Travellers 6 a side champions 2009
Aug 10, 2009, 11:08 pm


    The Finalists             The Meir Kats              The Traveller's

Sunday 9th August saw the "Rec" blessed with sunshine and with it brought a great day for all those that came along and either watched or played.

The Premier Meir Kats made it to the final following their tight win over Booze Brothers in the final group game, their opponents were a well drilled "well oiled"  Choppington Travellers. Both clubs had trained in the weeks leading up to the big day and it showed in a tight low scoring game, which saw the Travellers come out on top. The whole competition was played in a great spirt, even the prize money for the winners was shared which was a great jesture by the Trav's.

The player of the competition who went home with a bag full of cans was from the Travellers well done to Chris Watson who took a hatrick in one of the group games. 

It was also pleasing from our clubs point of view to see our sponsors Derek and Premier management team at the ground enjoying the day. Not to mention all the kids who seemed to have a great day.

A big thank you to all the club members who came alone to help on the day, especially Dean Greaves who help with the organsation, Peter Tipple who scored all day, David Wanless Snr and Jnr who umpired along with Callum Milburn, Matty Tanney, Michael Adamson, Kevin Hetherington, Chris Harwood, Steven Henderson, Jimbo and a special thank you to Susan Hetherington for the great job in the kitchen with the food and drink.
