Latest News and announcements

From Barnards Green Cricket Club.

 

MEMBERS PLEASE READ..

The content of this website is intended as an historical record of Barnards Green Cricket Club, important parts of which are the various photographs which may be taken from time to time and displayed on the site or in the clubhouse.
IF ANY MEMBER OF THE CLUB  DOES NOT WISH PHOTOGRAPHS OF THEMSELVES OR THEIR SONS/DAUGHTERS TO BE PUBLISHED, THEN THEY SHOULD CONFIRM THIS IN WRITING TO ANY TEAM CAPTAIN OR TO THE COLTS MANAGER

Barnards Green Cricket Club recently celebrated 75 years of providing cricket to everyone. "The Green" could not have achieved the recognition they have as one of the premiere clubs in the Midlands area without the tireless efforts of a string of volunteers who remain largely anonymous. Every club needs members who quietly get on with the job of making sure that  when the players turn up on Saturday afternoon they don't have to worry about the little details that make playing at The Green a pleasure. The Green recognise the efforts of those  people who "quietly get on with it". You know who you are. Thanks to you all.

Local legends will be appearing as well as some more widely known artists performing

Whilst we are not able, ( for contractual reasons), to reveal the identity of all of the acts involved

you can be sure that at least one member of the acclaimed beat combo, "The Beauchamp Road Set"

will be performing live on the night. Places for the event are obviously strictly limited and therefore

you will need to obtain your tickets as soon as they go on sale. Watch this space for more information.

Just as Abbey Road in London became famous as a breeding ground for talent in the 60's / 70's

so Beauchamp Road in Malvern is having the same effect currently.

With artists such as the "Jack Snatchers", "Porky and the Turtles", "Sincerely Someone Else's",

"Turdbag" and The Chocolate Dustbin" lined up, (yet to be confirmed), for the 5th February event

Malvern is at last getting "on the map". For more information please contact us.

Cricket Section AGM

At the recent AGM held at Northend Lane members present discussed and decided upon a number of important

issues. Tim Williams was re-appointed as the first team captain for what promises to be a testing first season

in the Birmingham League and we wish him every success as he takes the club forward.

Robbie Lewis, having served the section for many years in his position as Treasurer, received unanimous thanks

and praise as he handed over the reigns to Kevin Golder. Changes to subscriptions and match fees were discussed

at length and modest increases announced. Those present all agreed that if you want the best facilities then you need

to pay for them.

 

Andy Lamb was recently interviewed by Mike George on BBC Hereford and Worcester following

Andre's debut for the Windies. You can listen to the full interview here.

Thanks to BBC Hereford and apologies in advance if any copyright has been infringed.
