Barbados 2019

The tourist have returned all safe and sound from yet another successful trip over the sea to the hot and sunny Caribbean.  No doubt you will hear of many tales of great times of fun and laughter, drunkenness and harmless frolics combined with cricket throughout the summer.  More to follow in the near future including pictures. 

Cricket was the winner of course and the boys recorded two victories in the three games played this year.  Victory at North Stars and B.N.O.C with a defeat at the hands of Isolation Cavaliers.  Fair to say we triumphed in all three of the aftermath parties with the karaoke, dancing and drinking. 

Such is the reputation of Frocester Cricket Club on this magical island that we have been invited to play in a T20 tournament in 2021, with various other Caribbean teams each of which are being formed with current and past Windies cricketers with such names as Chris Gayle, Ashley Nurse, Carlos Brathwaite, Jason Holder and Shivnarine Chanderpaul all mentioned.  Exalted company indeed and a great honour to be approached.  Maybe a step too far however but who knows?

We are confident however that another tour will take place in 2021, which will be the 15th tour since it’s inauguration back in 1992.  Prices being available in the next few weeks and more details will be available certainly by sometime in April.  The earlier we can book our places and pay a small deposit the better rate we can obtain plus longer to save!  Think about it over the coming weeks or so and make yourself known if you are interested.  To Tony Bray in the first instance who will gather names of interested persons to see if it is indeed viable.
