Bonfire building starts at 09:00 tomorrow even if it’s raining see you there. Always great fun and something the kids do not get the chance to do very often.
Bonfire, please do not bring down any waste for the bonfire night, from today the area will be roped off. We have enough already to build a very tall bonfire and do not need anymore, thank you for your assistance, see you on the night.
Dear All Due to the weather this evening and tomorrow we have cancelled the BBQ as we had to commit to the food today. We are very much going to attempt to play the cricket as outlined in the all day event starting at 1pm. If the weather holds we may light the BBQ so if people want to bring their own food to cook please do. Fingers crossed the rain is lighter than forecasted but Nick Randall has done a great job getting the ground ready. See you all tomorrow for a fantastic day of cricket, awards, fun and for the adults the occasional drink. Paul

Hi All, Our overseas player this year Mthiwekhaya Nabe has been selected as part of the Western Province squad to take part in the Africa Cup T20 tournament. Western Province and the Cape Cobras who hold Mthiwekahaya’s contract wrote to the club requesting his formal release, to which we obviously granted. I am sure you will all like to join me in wish Mthi the very best for his home summer, and would like to thank him for his efforts this season. He has put in countless hours on the ground and more importantly with our colts who I know are very grateful for his work. Similarly I would like to thank Mthi for his efforts on and off the field, he has been a dream to Captain and his desire is second to none. He has been a great asset to the side and I wish him the very best. Mthi will return home on the 21st of August, making his last game on the 19th against Gerards Cross at home. As this is the race night, please feel free to come down and share a beer with Mthi prior to his departure. Jordan
