Proposed 'MINI TOUR' to Leics/Warwicks APRIL 28th- 30th 2020

This has been discussed, though not thoroughly, as was awaiting the outcome of the 'Spanish Tour' which is now not going ahead. Leicestershire expressed an interest, as they came down to see us last year, and Nick Rogers' brother Dave, Captains Warwickshire.I have emailed both, and awaiting communication. What I do need is interest from the Membership, so that I can gauge whether this would be a possibility. Deposits of £100 pp to reserve 2/3 nights accommodation, and to play TWO games on the Tuesday & Thursday, returning home after. Please let me know if your interested initially, further discussions can take place at the Dinner/AGM on Saturday November 2nd, along with costs.

Next Committee Meeting Tuesday NOVEMBER 19th @ the Coaver Club... 7pm

Following on from a very successful Dinner & EGM/AGM, the Committee meet with new elected members. The 'Coaver Club'  is situated at the Offices of Devon County Council. 

WINTER NETS booked again for APRIL '2020' @ the Sir Christopher Ondaatje Devon Cricket Centre...

Nets booked again for Wednesday APRIL 1st  & Tuesday APRIL  7th  for the new 2020 season, presuming 8 - 10pm


David Gambie has for several years served as the Clubs President and more recently as Chairman. However, he has indicated that he is no longer able to continue.

We need someone to step up to take this vital role on.

The Club can manage without a President, but having a Chairman is crucial if we are to continue to be able to play the cricket that we do.

Paul Berman & Andy Rose are continuing as Secretary & Treasurer, so there will be continuity of Officers for a new Chairman.

Please give this matter some serious thought, whether as a nominator for a candidate, or for taking it on yourself.


Annual Dinner & AGM booked again for Saturday November 7th 2020...into our 8th year?

Yet again, another successful evening spent in the company of many whom attended the Annual Dinner & EGM/AGM, so the event organizer has gone ahead and booked the same venue for next year. Should anyone wish a change of venue, please come forward & take on the responsibility of organizing this event.
