Sunday Friendly lost to the weather

Unfortunately the friendly match at Thursley scheduled fror this Sunday, (10th), has been lost to the weather.

Barry Rapley, Thursley CC Chairman, takes up the story…

“…We have made a decision to call off the weekends fixtures. Another downpour ago made our minds up. I have never known our square and outfield so wet as it has been this season.

Ladies Postponed

Tonight’s Women’s Surrey Trust League match at ‘home’ (East Molesey CC) between Stoke Molesey Ladies and Epsom has been postponed due to bad weather as Jon Elworthy, (EMCC), writes:

“Once again the Gods are against us and the match has had to be postponed. Andy (Page) and I will be looking to arrange another match with Epsom. Obviously as I type this the sun is coming out; but the pitch will take more than a few hours to dry out enough. See you all at Stoke (for girls’ training) on Saturday.” Read more

Extra Sunday fixture secured at Sutton this coming weekend

The Sunday XI friendly programme wasn’t meant to start in earnest until the 13th, but due to good numbers being available we have been able to advertise early for an extra fixture for this Sunday.

Not only does giving availability as soon as possible help us plan all teams for the weekend, it allows us to get in early when fixtures become available…and this week one of the leading clubs in Surrey, Sutton CC, have contacted us asking us to come and play against them. Read more
