We are now taking new and renewal memberships for 2017. Please complete the membership form and leave it behind the club bar with your membership fee, marked for the attention of the Secretary, St.Georges CC. Don’t forget – you can still get a £10 prompt payment discount for men’s playing membership.
This year’s registration evening for junior members is on Monday 20th March 6:30 for 7:00 pm. If you didn’t make it, you can still register your child for membership. Just complete the form and send it to the address provided in the pack. Parents of children who were members in 2016 should have received a personalised registration pack in the post. However, if any have gone astray, or for new members, a blank copy can be downloaded here.
Once again, we have registered for the Sainsbury “Active Kids” promotion. When you shop at Sainsbury’s, please collect the “Active Kids” vouchers. There is a box in the club bar to drop them into. These vouchers can be used to buy equipment for our junior boys and girls, and we have had some useful stuff through the scheme in previous years.
We have booked some sessions for indoor practice at Shrewsbury School with first session taking place on Monday 20th February at 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm. All players intending to play senior cricket this year are encouraged to attend. Please try and arrive ca. 10 minutes before the start of the session so we can best utilise the time available.
