With mixed emotions, Saturday 3rd September will be a very special day in the recent history of Frocester Cricket Club. This is the last opening day of the existing clubhouse and bar as it will be demolished to make way for the construction of a brand new pavilion. Plans are afoot to mark this occasion in a very special way. Please keep checking back as details are unveiled over the coming months.
To commemorate the ‘out with the old and in with the new’ pavilion, the social committee are going to arrange a photo album type book to capture the special moments enjoyed over the years at the place lovingly known as ‘The Shack’ .
This is where you can all make a valuable contribution, apart from buying the publication later of course but in supplying the actual material to include within the pages of what promises to be a unique and lovely reference work of the Pounds Close pavilion over the years.
If you have any photographs of events both on and off the field, in or out of the pavilion then please let us borrow them to include in this publication.
The coordinator of this project is Wendy Hawkins, so please contact Wendy to pass on your pictures.
April 22nd, 2017 – This is the date planned for a Grand Ball to commemorate the opening of our new pavilion. Although this event is still in the early stages of planning every effort will be made to make this an evening to remember. Please write this in your diary for next year. We are hoping for many past and current players to attend, a professional photographer, special guests plus great food and entertainment.
Update: Music has been booked and appears in the shape of local legend Tommy and The Fuse. Confirmed also is a professional photographer for the night.
Old pavilion, old alley, old fools.
Wednesday 20th April 2016 saw the last skittles match played in the current pavilion and on the old alley. Fittingly it was between the two club sides ‘The Spinners’ and ‘The Cricketers’. Please click on the ‘skittles’ header in the above menu for a selection of photographs taken on the night.
Social membership of the club runs from 1st April until the 31st March the following year. Membership remains at £10.00 per person. It is important that you sign up as quickly as possible to receive your membership card. Forms have been emailed out to most but those of you that have not received said form please ask at the bar. One of the benefits of doing so will enable you to receive important updates via email and it allows us to be more professional in our dealings and record keeping, which is an official requirement for us as a social club. Playing membership is dealt with separately and most, if not all players are officially registered, if you think you are not then please contact your relevant captain.
It is intended to utilise this, The Red Picket Fence web site (with the web address of www.frocestercc.com) as the official page of the Frocester Cricket Supporters Club.
The main aim of this site will be to keep you informed of all the supporters club activities, functions, news and events etc. It will develop as it goes along and your opinions and thoughts are most appreciated on how this grows.
The main Frocester Cricket Club web site will remain on Play Cricket and by * clicking this link you will be directed there. The main site will still update you on all things cricket, fixtures, results, stats, facts and information. There are plans for further development of this Play Cricket site.
