DORRIDGE CRICKET CLUB
   

It is with great sadness that we have learnt that two Dorridge stalwarts have passed away.

FRANK KNIGHT, who would have reached his Century next month, was a former First Team Skipper and Club Umpire. He was one of life's Gentlemen and an enthusiastic follower of Dorridge Cricket. 


DEREK JEWSBURY, a teammate of Frank's during the 1960's, was one of the best all rounders to have played for the club and also enjoyed his time as a Club Umpire. Derek passed away last April aged 90.

They will be missed. 



We can all imagine what Frank & Derek would have made of recent Test Result (5th India v England)

Numbers to ponder on     103 0   192 4   207 10


Overheard in Doctor's Waiting Room recently.

"What has happened to the pride of playing for a draw? A consequence of one day cricket and the attitude of the one day player, illustrates how the game has changed in a relatively short period and with ECB plans for T20 cricket to dominate the summer months from 2020 with Championship pushed to the fringes of April/May and September I fear that the game I played and enjoyed is slipping away for good"

An Old Git.
