Mac was a very fun loving, colourful lad so can we please ensure all players are not wearing whites! But if you can try an organise your team in the same colour that would be very fitting!
To ensure we don’t disrupt the running of the Village Shop or any other aspects of village life can we please park behind the bowls club through the small gate at the Tennis court end of the Car Park – Drive with care also! This would be much appreciated.
Fun for all of the family!
Players, Children, Spectators, Supporters are all welcome. Of any age, gender and ability! So why not come along and have a nice family day out, play a little cricket, support your local Cricket club and most importantly raise some money for Charity in memory of Mac!

Lots of Beers in The George afterwards, and for the seasoned pro a friendly game of Matchbox! There are lots of new members to the club this year so please come and have a beer and get to know everyone socially.
IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER FOR ANY THING DURING THE DAY, THAT WOULD BE HUGELY APPRECIATED! ORGANISERS WILL BE AT THE REC AT 9:30AM TO SETUP SO ANY HELP FROM THEN REALLY.
