Chairman’s Column

John MatthewsChairman's Column, Magna MagicLeave a Comment

The season is well and truly over and the ground has been put to bed, but the club does not sleep after what was a tremendously good season from all facets of the club.

There have certainly been plenty of personal highs and lows many of which were captured in Nick Burridge’s fantastic photo exhibition in the village hall.

These are encapsulated in two wonderful books of spectacular colour photographs entitled The Men of Sherston Cricket and The Boys of Sherston Cricket.

We thank Nick for the tremendous amount of time and effort that he put into all of this. We move on. We have had the very well attended awards dinner but I am not going to go through the winners but well done to one and all of them.

I would like to say how delighted Matilda and I were that Neil has agreed to become the club’s first President.

In my last column I had to break the disappointing news that the club had been turned down for a grant by Sport England. It therefore gives me great pleasure to announce that we have been awarded £5,000 by the Wiltshire Council. We get ever closer to building the much discussed new training facilities.

This is not the time to rest on our laurels and the Club’s big fund raising event is happening at the end of the month, so please give all the support you can to the Smile Out Loud event.

Apart from being what I am sure will be a memorable evening we shall have the chance to buy the book which will swell the Club’s coffers and provide us with that lifesaving Christmas present. I hope to see you all there.
