  • North Stars Cultural and Social Club, Barbados

On Wednesday 20th August, North Stars will be paying a visit to Frocester, now a regular feature on their biannual tour to England. We are honoured as always to play host to this fine club. If they played every team in England that have requested a fixture, they would have to stay for a couple of months to fit them all in. Such is the esteem  in which they are held. Due in no small part to the hospitality, generousity and friendship they greet all touring teams to Crab Hill, St Lucy. We however have formed a very strong bond between us and we are pleased they elect to travel to Gloucestershire where we can hope to reward such friendship by playing a game of cricket and entertaining them afterwards.

As it is the week leading up to the beer festival many hands are required in helping to set up everything for that major event, please see Paul Mukasa’s note above. Therefore we are seeking availability from anyone who cares for a game; you do not need to be a member of Frocester, anyone welcome. Just email/contact Ali Bray if you would like to play. The match itself will be played at St Peter’s Field and afterwards we hope to enjoy an evening of fun and frolics back at Pounds Close.

Kerry Thornton and Shaun Sutton have very generously offered to fund a pig roast with any profits going back into FCC. However to gauge the size of the beast to be roasted we need to know approximate numbers attending. Can you please RSVP to Tony Bray if you intend to be there please.
