IN MEMORY OF  DERRICK BROOKE

IN MEMORY OF
DERRICK BROOKE

After the last home a dedication ceremony was held concerning a Weather Vane, in memory of Derrick Brooke who had spent a lifetime of work  both on and off the field in promoting the improvement of facilities at Pott Shrigley Cricket Club.

Over sixty people attended the ceremony including many past players, friends, family and club members. Chaiman Andrew Hart recalled many events from Derrick’s cricketing life both on and off the field of play recalling his E,C.B. Lifetime Achievment Award in 2008. Derrick’s son Ian, a past Team Captain and Cheshire League official, made an emotional reply  thanking the club and all who donated to the memorial, saying the image on the weather vane captured the spirit of Derrick’s cricketing life.

Our first ‘Cricketfest’ day  was a hit all round.   Despite a dull start the day got better as time went quickly by. A big thank you goes to  those who helped make it a family fun day especially the catering department and all the cake bakers who donated so many tasty delights . It put the Test Match Special programme to shame.

With deepest regret to all those who have lost their lives in Manchester.

The Club would like to pass on our deepest condolences to all the families who have lost love ones and pray for those still injured hospital.

The Club also have another member who has recently passed away, sadly  we have to report the death of our past Treasurer Brian Warhurst. He served the club for five years in the 70s and 80s during our most successful period on the field of play and a time of a huge growth in membership and social activity. Our thoughts are with his wife Ann and the family.

It is with great sadness and regret that the Club has to announce the passing of John Derrick Brooke.

Derrick had been the main force for improvement in our Club since he joined in the 1950s. His total commitment, and energy will very hard to replace. Our deepest condolences go to his son Ian.

Euro  ’15   Qualifiers – 

 

Pott Shrigley made their annual trip to Sheffield to take on Cassabanka in an eagerly anticipated football match. There was a good representation of first, second and Sunday players, although some late drop-outs left Shrigley with ten men to start the game (traffic meant Mathers could only make it with half an hour gone).

In a hotly contested game, Pott were to come out on the wrong side of a seven goal thriller, losing 4-3 to an 89th minute strike. This came after a stirring fightback, with Pott battling back from 2-0 and 3-1 down to draw level thanks to a great left foot strike from Mathers and two smart finishes from Jason Hanaghan, the second from the spot after the marauding Cleaver had been felled.

There may be another game or two in the next couple of months so please keep an eye out for those. Talent is not necessary and it would be good to see more people come along and have a game.

Matt Todd.

  It is with much regret that we pass on the sad news that Margaret Hart, wife of our Chairman Michael Hart, has died after a long battle with cancer.    Margaret has been a long time supporter of the Club attending functions, making countless cricket teas and cakes for our fundraising events. She  will be greatly missed.

  Our thoughts and sympathy are with the Hart family at this very sad time.

Another past Club member Jim Berry, has also recently passed away. Jim was an outstanding all-rounder on the field and who, off the field, was always a great helper working many hours on several joinery and painting projects in the pavilion. Again our thoughts and sympathy go to his wife Beryl.

GRANT AND PAVILION

We are very pleased to announce that we have been offered a substantial sum from The Heritage Lottery Fund,  towards the renovation and extension of our Pavilion.

The good news is that building work on the new Extension should begin before the end of January 2014 and if all goes to plan (does it ever) it should take around six weeks or  so. A lot of course will  depend on the weather. Let us hope for a drier spell over the next few weeks.

Because the grant will not cover all we plan to do, we will be organising extra events in the coming months, so please try to give as much support to these as you can.
