SCCC celebration dinner

Dear All,
As it is 25 years since we won our first Yorkshire League title and 15 years on from our National Knockout victory we are hosting a celebration dinner at Baldwin's on 3 July 2015.
 
Old Eds also won the title in 1990 so there is much to celebrate.
 
The price is a very reasonable £35 per head. Many Thanks to our Vice President David Baldwin who has, as ever, granted us a heavy discount. We need a minimum of 130 people but I am confident we can exceed this.
 
We already have 4 tables of 10 covered thanks to Sue and Malcolm Rathbone (Lady Chairman and Chairman in 1990), Richard Ibbotson (current Chairman and Chairman in 2000), Dave Seale (Vice Chairman and former Old Eds Skipper) and myself (none of the above).
 
It would be great if you could join us for what promises to be a memorable evening as we look back and celebrate key moments in our illustrious history.
 
If anyone would like to take a table or knows of anyone who would like to sponsor one (we can look at suitable packages) that would be fantastic.
 
Please do join us. Further details including timings to follow.
 
I can be contacted via this e mail address or on my mobile which is 07807828666.
 
Everyone is welcome.
 
Jonesey

2 out of 2 for VPs

After a winning start to the season, the VPs continued their assault on league 2 with a classy performance against a strong Baslow team. Bolstered by the return of two ex-legends of the game, Parrsy (fresh from his annual trip to Decathalon) and our overseas (Wales and Wolverhampton) Sir General Vice Admiral Layer OBE VC H&M B&Q (not that he bangs on about it).

Unusually, Skipper lost the toss (currently 50:50, what are the chances) and we were inserted. It was raining. Bob and Ashy dutifully opened up, building a steady platform and with the 50 up, Bob fell after a hard graft. Enter Stewie, fresh of the back of last weeks match winning 60 odd and from ball 1 struck the ball well. The partnership built, quick running, hitting the bad ball, hitting the ex collegiate batsman in the face and the occasional 6, it was a joy to watch. Stewart broke his bat and with Ash's usual grinning response to some average sledging, the Baslow spirit. Banter was good in the dressing room mainly thanks to Parr reminding us of his music hall variety act. It was still raining. Ashy reached his superb ton with time running out and Stewie ended on 93 off 90 balls. A few with chronic pad rash yet again but 239-1, no one was complaining, a tough target in any standard of cricket. Still raining.

VP's off to winning start

The VPXI begun the campaign with a home game at HSBC against a youthful Hollinsend side.  After 3 weeks of great weather, it was inevitable that come Saturday, we would be met with wind, rain and cold.....and the weather did not disappoint.

New captain Bulk won the toss (already better than Sealy?) and inserted Hollinsend.  A motivational speech before the game was given (and shared with Daniel Longley talking to his Dad about what they are having for tea next Thursday) with the boys in no doubt a) what was expected of them and b) where to go for chicken nuggets.  In future, kids banned from our changing rooms for a whole host of reasons.

Wellhard and Bull opened the bowling.  Wellman found little change from the pitch, but bowled an extremely economical 7 over spell.  Bull was a little rusty; his only real contribution was bouncing one of the openers and putting him on the floor (you don't lose it).  Club record signing, Ricky V.W, replaced Bull with the hope he would not suffer second season syndrome and he did not disappoint.  He took 3 quick wickets and from 36-0, Hollinsend became 54-3.  Longy Longy Longy took over from Wellman and he was quickly into his transparent ways.  Champagne moment undoubtedly putting someone out at cow (joint decision, led by the captain) with the very next ball the batsman hitting it straight to a surprised Rookey who took a simple catch.
