Shenley's fully packed social calendar throughout the season always begins to take shape from early on, and for 2009 this is no exception. Take a look at the events shaping up the SCECC Calendar so far:
FRIDAY 17 APRIL - PRE-SEASON CURRY NIGHT
The usual suspects will all be in attendance for the pre-season drink-up, taking place in the Eight Belles pub for a few pints, before moving onto an Indian restaurant in Bletchley. All members are invited and encouraged to come along for this team get-together, whether it's for a quick half or until the very end. Speak to Stuart Burke for more details.
MONDAY 4 MAY - PEAKERS' PORK PIT
The annual event that is the legendary Pork Pit, named after the Jamaican equivalent, is set to encourage all to gorge themselves silly on and many different meats as possible, and try the array of beers offered by members. Hosted at Peakers' house in Bletchley on Bank Holiday Monday daytime, this is a family event - so WAGS welcome!
23-26 MAY - SCECC TOUR OF BOURNEMOUTH
Shenley's tours to outreaching parts of the UK has gone to extreme, well, the South Coast anyway. Dorset will be the setting for 3 matches in delightful settings, with Bournemouth being the base for the usual Tour shenanigans. Places are very limited, while DEPOSITS/PAYMENTS ARE REQUIRED ASAP for members who are joining the tour - Colin or Andy will gladly collect monies owed.
FRIDAY 24 JULY - NORTHANTS v. AUSTRALIA
A mammoth day out for SCECC in the cricketing calendar! Australia are touring England (as if you didn't know...), and Northants have bagged a screamer in the form of a 3 day fixture at the County Ground. Shenley are attending Day 1 on the Friday, and with nearly 20 people ticketed up, it promises to be a cracking day - followed by food and more beer into the evening!
All members are welcome, tickets can be bought form the NCCC website for £12 (unrestricted seating) or by phoning.
MONDAY 31 AUGUST - GEOFF DEVEREUX MEMORIAL
The club's annual fixture - with newly named Bletchley Town CC - will remember SCECC's own legend Geoff Devereux. Members, WAG's, friends and the entire family are all extremely welcome on a day of light-hearted cricket, barbecue, beers, fun and laughs. First ball will be bowled around 1:00pm
Also in the pipeline....
