Cricket at Dursley Rugby Club – summer 2017

Comments Off on Cricket at Dursley Rugby Club – summer 2017

In recent years, following the Stinchcombe Stragglers Cricket Club (SSCC) being unable to continue to play regularly due to declining numbers, the rugby club has hired out its cricket pitch to Cam Cricket Club.

In 2016, the rugby club was approached by some local cricketers (some of whom are former SSCC players) to ask if we would be interested in resurrecting a cricket section of the rugby club.

To cut a long story short, this proposal was agreed at the rugby club AGM in December 2016 for the summer of 2017 as a test to see if it is sustainable in the longer term.

This cricket section will play under the name Stinchcombe Stragglers Cricket Club Old Boys 2017 and has entered a team into the local leagues, with their first match in Stinchcombe taking place against Cam 4th team on Saturday 13th May. Matches will then take place at Stinchcombe every 2 weeks on average until the end of August.

The rugby club is delighted to support this development and the resurrection of the name of the team, and are hopeful that it will become sustainable into the future.

 

If anyone would like to know more or make contact with those leading the cricket section please contact Chairman Pat Young at  info@pycontractsltd.co.uk 07585-070609 or Secretary Gordon Carey at gordoncarey@me.com 07973-427207
