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.

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.

Members Get Busy Fundraising – Lords Relay

With most of this year’s planned fundraising projects having being cancelled due to the current restrictions, some of our members have been thinking up new initiatives.

The weekend of the 30th-31st May saw St Georges Cricket Club and Telford and Wrekin Hockey Club join forces in an attempt to complete a virtual relay to Lords, a distance of 154 miles, to raise money for the NHS and the respective clubs. Participants had a hour (give or take) to walk/ run/ cycle as far as they could, with their distance being added to the grand total.

The event was well supported, with a total of 32 members from both clubs participating, which given the high temperatures over the weekend showed a great commitment. Day one saw an impressive 94 miles completed, breaking the back of the target and putting the relay well on its way. However day 2 was even more impressive, with event gaining momentum and an increasing number of volunteers joining in to add their miles to the cause. The original target of 154 miles was smashed by mid afternoon and passing 200 miles looked like a possibility. Participants continued to dig deep and put the miles in their legs. Thanks to a late burst, at the end of the day when the miles tallied up, not only had the relay managed to pass 200 miles, but also the 250 mile mark, finishing with a staggering 277.7 miles.

Many thanks to all those who contributed, be that by completing a leg of the relay or donating to the causes. Thanks in particular to Neil Davies, Ben Crump and Rachel Chesters for coming up with the idea and arranging.

Since the relay took place the Cricket club has added over £200 in pledges towards the upkeep of the ground and facilities during lockdown taking the total so far to £990, with the NHS Charities Together also receiving donations. There is still time to donate, and if you feel able to please follow the links below.’
