Welcome to the Old Ashfordians’ Cricket Club’s Play Cricket Site
Members of the Club enjoyed a sociable pre-season meal at The Bells in Staines well arranged by our new captain for the year Robbie Handley. Sadly the first match against Claygate was cancelled, however, we are looking forward to the match against Spelthorne on Sunday 4 May.
This year President's Day will be on Sunday 13 July at Royal Ascot CC's ground in the middle of the racecourse. The match between the Captain's XI and the Vice-Captain's XI for the George Marshall Trophy will start at 11am, with lunch between innings. All friends of the Club are warmly invited to join us, please do let the president, Mike Carr or a member of the committee know if you would like to join us for lunch or to play.
Club Golf Day
This year we are having an informal golf day on Monday 2 June at Wokefield Park near Reading. If you would like to play or to book an overnight stay on the Sunday evening after the match against Checkendon, please contact the Secretary, Team Secretary or another member of the committee.
New Honorary Members
At the AGM there were unanimous votes to elect three new Life Members: Mike Carr, Steve Gaedtke and Steve Price. All three have given long and valued support to the Old Boy's both on and off the field and continue to do so. There was also a unanimous vote to elect Mike Peace as a Vice President.
The Club is sad to record the deaths of two members during the close season: Bob Brooking a Vice President and Josh Heppenstall a Playing Member. Our sympathies are extended to their widows: Carol and Susannah.
