Pushing the Boundaries

Southgate CC is delighted that Dan Whiting aka ‘The Middle Stump’ will be bringing his hit Cricket Show ‘Pushing the Boundaries’ to the Walker Cricket Ground on Friday the 10th of April.

Proceeds go to Melanoma UK and it promises to be a fantastic evening’s entertainment. The more the merrier but do book up ASAP as tickets will sell out. Details below:

Walker Ground Fireworks – 8/11/2014

We are pleased to announce that this year the Walker Ground Grand Fireworks Display will be on SATURDAY, 8th NOVEMBER 2014.

The display is a major fund raising event for the Walker Cricket Ground Trust and therefore is hugely important to Southgate CC, over 8,000 people are expected to attend.

In 2014 this was our major fundraising initiative and we hope to raise even more money this year.

We need volunteers to help on the SCC fundraising stall and to assist with stewarding. If you volunteer you will receive free family entry!

Last time around we ran a cake stall selling some cracking home made cakes, we’d like to do that again if someone can step up. We also ran a very popular dice game to win a car which was also very good fun and a great success.

If anyone has a good fundraising idea for the fireworks event now is the time to make it happen.

We also have the opportunity to sell tickets to your members, friends and family and for every ticket sold the club will receive 40% commission. Tickets are available now!

Last year was a lot of fun and the more the merrier for 2015. Please contact cricket@southgatecc.com if you can get involved.

Many thanks,

Rob

Cricket Force – This Saturday

On Saturday (12th April) we are holding our annual NatWest Cricket Force event to get the ground completely ready for action!

This is always an essential but fun part of getting the season underway. Here’s a photo of Jez and Sage in previous cricket force action to wet the appetite.



A great deal of work has taken place behind the scenes at the Walker Ground during the off-season and I’m sure you’ll be impressed with the condition of the squares and surrounds  .

You’ll also be delighted to inspect two brand new wheeled cage nets which have been purchased by the cricket club this month to boost our practice facilities for 2014 and beyond.

All players are asked to attend on Saturday, a training session is planned to follow the ground work and no doubt a few well earned refreshments will be available when we’re finished. Faisal is planning to get some pizzas in for those who can hang around and it will be great to catch up with everyone on the day.

  • 11am Players meet at the club for Cricket Force
  • 2pm Players pre-season meeting & training session
  • 4pm Well earned refreshments

I very much look forward to seeing you on Saturday.

Keep Calm and Curry On – Saturday 4th May

Next Saturday (4th May) Dipali restaurant will be bringing their fine Indian cuisine up to the Walker ground in the form of a buffet after the intra-club game.
