Junior Cricket back at St.Georges in 2021!

We are planning to start our junior sessions on Monday April 26th and invite member registrations from existing and new boys and girls. Due to current Covid restrictions we cannot hold our usual pre-season registration evening. Emails with personalised registration forms will shortly be sent to parents of all junior members from 2019 and 2020. A registration pack with information for NEW members can be downloaded here.

As well as our usual programme we will also be running ECB schemes AllStars and Dynamos. These are eight week sessions for children aged 5-8 and 9-11 respectively. These sessions will run on a Friday evening starting on May 14th. Signing up for these schemes is separate from normal club membership.

With great sadness we report that Tom Savage passed away on Monday 18th January after contracting Covid-19. He was 83 years old. Tom was one of our longest serving members, who represented the club from the early 1950s until the 1980s. Older members will remember him as a very good batsman. As well as a player Tom was a great club man who continued to be involved in the club when his playing days were over. He coached and managed junior teams up until a few years ago. He was a regular in the club bar until the enforced closure due to the pandemic. He will be greatly missed by us all. The funeral is on Monday 8th February 10:30 am at Telford Crematorium. Due to the pandemic, numbers will be restricted. Anybody who would like to attend should contact Mike Waldron.

Happy Christmas !

We wish all our members, sponsors, supporters and friends a very Happy Christmas and hope that you enjoy the Christmas period as best as you can in these very strange circumstances. Let’s hope that 2021 will be a better year and that we can have a normal cricket season when the summer comes.

Season 2020 up and running at last

Last weekend saw the long-awaited return of league cricket in the county. All three teams made good showings with only the 2nd XI denied victory by the rain. It’s good to see so many enthusiastic players this year. This has confirmed our intention to enter a 4th XI in the Shropshire League in 2021. In the meantime Sunday 4th XI friendly matches are being arranged in order to ensure that we can offer match cricket to as many members as possible. Ryan Hoofe has taken on the captaincy of the team. We wish him well and urge all members to give him all the support they can, so that this important development for the club is successful.
