After a summer heat wave (except at weekends!) I hope the good weather will continue at least until Sunday 31 August and provide a sunny day for us all to enjoy at the Cricket Club. This year performances on the pitch have been a little mixed so the Festival will give players a chance to enjoy themselves in the company of as many members and friends of the Club as possible.
Once again there will be two 20/20 matches, the first involving Shropshire’s senior cricketers as they battle to show that whilst you can’t stop growing old at least you can enjoy a game of cricket! The main event will see two sides from the Club (including some guests) facing each other. Invited guests will include the two National Club Championship teams together with other players, Sponsors and Honorary Members.
The Club have managed to secure some funding to develop a fantastic new net practice facility – these nets should be available for first use a few weeks after President’s Day so make a note in your diary, come down and join us on the day, to see the progress of the new nets and enjoy the company of the members and friends of Shrewsbury Cricket Club!
