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.
Date for the diary. This weekend ..... 31st March Return of The Bellends
Spandex Bellend (and others) will be playing live at The Green.

We wish them both every success - until they play England of course.

It would therefore be very helpful if you could let him know by email your thoughts on accomodation, location etc
and register your initial interest (or otherwise). He would also appreciate other thoughts that you may have on the subject.
You can use one of the following links:-

Just a reminder about the Sunday Social..
Malvern Radar FC play their home games on Sunday mornings at Victoria Park and have their base at The Green.
They are currently second in the league and have a number of crucial games coming up.
Several of our social and cricket section members play for Radar and many more turn up each week to support.
If you have not yet experienced the intensity and excitement of a "mighty green radar army" match then try
to come along and support our adopted footie club. Post-match analysis takes place in the bar from about 12.15.
Remember also that Sky Sports are usually kind enough to provide us with one or two top-class premiership games
during Sunday afternoons and these can be enjoyed on our recently updated big screen. It costs a lot for us to show
live matches so please come and use the facilities and spend some money over the bar.
Thanks to everyone involved with Radar FC and The Sunday Social for supporting your club throughout the winter.
