Minal Sports and Social Club - August Cricket Fixtures and Activity Calendar
Good news from the Sports and Social Club, which is now alive and active again with various events planned for 2019 and beyond.
At the AGM in April, new members were voted in and grateful thanks extended to all the past committee members and trustees who have worked tirelessly over the years to make it so successful.
We will continue to have cricket played on the sports field with the Marlborough 3's playing as their home grounds on Saturday and the Leg Rovers playing mainly on Thursday evenings. So why not take a picnic along and enjoy a traditional English pastime?
Going back to our roots in encouraging young footballers - of both sexes - for the future: one of the local girls teams have played a couple of matches so far, and we are hoping that this will become a regular fixture.
Several well established village social events will continue, as before. The 6-a-side cricket match and the Minal Duck Race will both take place on Sunday 28th July.
Forthcoming cricket fixtures at Minal field for the website events calendar are:
Sunday 11thAugust 1pm: Ramsbury Leg Rovers
Saturday 17thAugust 1pm: Marlborough Cricket Club 3’s.
Thursday 29thAugust 5.30pm: Minal invitation 11 v Ramsbury Leg Rovers. Chris Hurd organising – keen to get Minal or nearby residents to play!
Please contact Chris or Clive Scholefield.
Saturday 31stAugust 1pm: Marlborough Cricket Club 3’s.
There might be more cricket games in September and also girls football. We will update later in August.
Thanks to John Youngs, Stuart Barnett and Richard Cook who continue to prepare pitches and fields before matches.
And equally great news: Minal's Guy Fawkes bonfire night with fireworks will be returning this year on November 5th, of course.
The club is finishing off the year with Christmas Bingo in the village hall on Friday 6th December.
Keep a look out on the Minal website for other events to be added during the year.
