Hello to all,

As we tiptoe toward a return to life as we knew it, I just wanted to bring everyone up-to-date with developments on and off the field. We are excited to have a new shirt sponsor on board for at least the next 2 years and have been working extensively to attract more sponsorship revenue. I am delighted to reveal that we have today placed an order for a new outfield mower -and Paul is extremely keen to put stripes into the grass! And we have refreshed the batting cages for the safety of all.

The cricket season is scheduled to start 17th April and, as further easement to the lockdown permits outdoor drinks from 12th April we will, of course, endeavour to provide matchday refreshments as last season. We all hope that the roadmap works -and that you will be able to enjoy the club in full from 21st June.

We are ever reliant on our members subscriptions to sustain the club and grounds. Cricket is not cheap to host! You will remember that we asked for a notional fee for player subscriptions last year (£20) which contributed towards costs. Membership fees for 2021 are as follows :

Senior Player £80. Under 11-Under 17 £87 (£55 subs, £20 sunday coaching, £12 patron fee(Parent/guardian)). Up to age 11 £57 (£25 subs, £20 sunday coaching,£12 patron/parent).

Patrons fee £12, Vice-President £20.

As we are unable to host the traditional 'signing-on night', we ask where possible for fees to be paid by direct transfer. Our bank details :Thornton Cleveleys CC account number 50192264, sort code 01-07-05. Players will receive their new shirts prior to the commencement of the season and we would greatly appreciate payment of all player subs prior to the start of the season.

I very much look forward to seeing you all at the Illawalla this season and appreciate your continued co-operation in helping our club survive this period of uncertainty.

Dave Rolinson
