Cricket tour to New York
This is a very tentative enquiry to gauge what interest there is for a tour to New York in the future. Lkely date to be mid to late September 2017. Duration of a week, maybe 10 days to be decided. If enough players, supporters are interested then an initial meeting can be organised to create a strategy for the way forward in making this happen. Our cricketing friends in ‘The Big Apple’ are looking at viable possibilities to allow us to visit. This would be quite unique and a very special trip. I know we would be welcomed by the USA cricketing authorities with open arms. The earlier we can agree the longer we will have to start saving for this exciting venture. Please then in the first instance, just let me (Tony Bray) aware of your interest, however slight.
What’s on at Frocester through the winter

Message regarding team ‘SueParHeroes’
A big thank you to all the members and friends at Frocester cricket club who so kindly donated to the cancer charity in memory of Sue Partridge.
The Bristol to Bath marathon is one of the most challenging courses in the country with some very steep hills! Emma and Ed completed in 3 hours 30 minutes, Will Lee in 3 hours 50, Will Partridge in 4 hours and Cobbs (Emma’s friend), Emily, and Chris Herb in under 4 hours 30. Amazing run for all, thanks for the support on the day.
The Just Giving page is still open if anyone else wishes to give.
