Frocester Cricket Supporters Club

Supporters Club News

Following a supporters Club meeting last night (Thursday 16th August) we are pleased to confirm a few events for your diary.

Saturday 1st September: Live music in the evening after the game in the form of local band ‘Bangalore Torpedo’s’

Saturday 22nd September: Grand Autumn Ball

Saturday 3rd November: Players Awards and Presentation Evening. This year it will be held at the Pounds Close pavilion with dips and nibbles available.  From 8.00 pm at only £5.00 per head. There will be live music to dance the night away. News on the music available very soon so watch this space.

Saturday 10th November: Frog Racing hops into Frocester! An evening of great fun ahead, similar principle to a race night but instead of racing on film it will be frog racing in the clubhouse. Before you start leaping around at the thought of frogs in your beer or wine they will be ‘cardboard frogs’ operated by a frog jockey!  We are looking for race sponsors at a mere £20 per race and sponsors for frogs at £5.00 a go. That is the general idea anyway. I hope you Reddit carefully.  If you can sponsor either a race or a frog please let anyone on the supporters committee know; Dave Poultney, Nikki Pinker, Tony Bray, Mel Wellings, Rich Tuck, Jim Clarkson, Marjorie and Wendy Hawkins are some of the committee members for your information.

Sunday 2nd December: Advent Lunch. Further details to follow.


North Stars

Wednesday 15th August saw the visit of our very good friends from Crab Hill, St Lucy in Barbados. North Stars arrived for a day of cricket and socialising and a huge success it was too. A good number of folks came along to support the day and say hello. A huge thank you to all who came, too many to mention individually by name but you all played a part in the success of the day. However a special thank you must go to Kerry Thornton, Eric Bird and Vince Webb for their sterling efforts with the catering and bar.  

Morning drizzle turned into light cloud then blue skies and sunshine. The cricket match was exciting with Frocester posting 210 in their innings after 35 overs. In reply it was a stand out performance by captain Ashley Skeete for North Stars scoring a century guiding home his team to a fine win with just 5 overs remaining.

Our guests departed around 9.30 in rain, sad to be leaving and saying fond farewells, until next February at least when Frocester will be the visitors to North Stars for the return match. We can’t wait!
