Frocester Cricket Supporters Club

Rugby, Curry and the build up to Christmas and the New Year…..

Following a supporters (social) meeting last night we are pleased to announce a few more events for the very near future for you to enjoy.

First up is a Rugby and Curry day/night. Saturday, 18th November sees the second of the autumn internationals with England v Australia in the afternoon followed by Ireland v Fiji in the evening. Sandwiched in between will be servings of baked potatoes and curry with a vegetarian option for those seeking such delights. 

The England game starts at 3.00pm so tea will be served at approximately 5.00pm prior to the start of the next game. The club will be open from around 1.00pm for the pre-match warm up, i.e. drinking. Cups of tea or coffee if that is your preference or something a little stronger to keep out the cold.

Incidentally the club will be open this coming Saturday 11th for the first round of internationals with England v Argentina and England v Samoa on the 25th November. 

Following that is the Advent Lunch on Sunday, 3rd December held this year at the new clubhouse. 12.30pm  for a 1.30pm sit down. The price is £15.00 per head (I know what you are thinking, how much for the whole body). This will include a Sunday roast with all the trimmings etc. Buy your own wine or preference on the day. Places will be limited to 90 and those places will go very quickly indeed, therefore contact Dave Poultney on 01453 822960 as soon as you can to book your spot(s).

There was talk of a paper cutting craft day at the club on a Sunday prior to Christmas and more details of this will follow shortly when confirmed.

Also discussed is the strong possibility of a cricket match on New Years Eve, under lights! In conjunction with some festive celebrations befitting the first New Year in the new pavilion. Again keep watching this space for details as and when confirmed.

Lastly and probably most importantly the Supporters Club Committee, which is in effect the social committee will be holding their A.G.M. on Tuesday 21st November at the pavilion starting prompt at 7.30pm. Please try and attend as this small band of brothers and sisters are the lifeblood of the club, creating ideas and organising events throughout the year. If you enjoy what we try to do then please come along and voice your approval or disapproval if you wish. New blood with fresh ideas are most welcome. Thank you in advance.

Talking of A.G.M.’s please note the Cricket Club A.G.M. is on Sunday, November 26th. at 11.00am. Please try and attend this very important meeting as the club looks forward to the future.


Barbados 2019

44 people have now booked with Birdy to stay 14 nights at Infinity on the Beach, St Lawrence Gap, Barbados. Flying from Gatwick on Monday 25th February 2019. The tour goes ahead then and a great time awaits with cricket, rum, horse racing, rum, catamaran trip where there will be more rum and renewing old friendships built up over the past 25 years of touring this magical island maybe over a glass of beer.

There will be a few others joining this tour but staying over the road at ‘Time Out’, a smaller budget hotel on a bed and breakfast option. This is slightly cheaper but nonetheless highly rated hotel is only over the road from the main group. This small band of rebels will travel and do everything with the main tour party but will be hitting the local rum shacks and restaurants instead of eating and drinking at the hotel. 

It’s never to late to join, subject to availability, especially any cricketers wishing to join in this very special and memorable tour. Speak to Eric Bird or Tony Bray for more details.
