Tolethorpe Park Cricket Club celebrates the 100th anniversary
Tolethorpe Park Cricket Club are celebrating their 100th anniversary this year.
The uncertainty of Covid-19 has muted plans for celebrations, however, there is a Chairman’s eleven fixture on July 11 when it is hoped that past players and villagers can attend outdoors and a formal dinner at the end of the season if restrictions allow.
The club has recently benefited from grants from the England Cricket Board and the Augean Community Fund for ground improvements including new toilets, a new boundary fence and an outfield mower.
They currently need new players to enable the club to survive in to its next 100 years.
The club plays a list of friendly fixtures, mostly at home in Little Casterton and mainly on Sundays.
Their first match of the season is scheduled to take place on Sunday when they visit Ropsley before Tolethorpe take on Holme in a Twenty20 match on Friday, June 25.
Fixtures for next month include home games against Lincolnshire Poachers on Friday, July 2, Red Bat on July 3 and Peterborough CAMRA on Sunday, July 18.
Players of all ages and abilities are welcome. The club has several father and son/daughter combinations as it gives them the opportunity to play together in the same team.
Anyone interested in playing should contact Andy Bullimore on 07901 988935 or Jonathan Digby on 07518 021113.
