Club fundraiser

Hi Folks,

The Music Night is one of the only fundraisers we are having this year – so it would be very good, and the committee would be very grateful, if you could come along. It takes place on Friday 14th November at Chippenham Village Hall, start time 7.30pm.
The event has been running for many years and is a mixture of music and comedy acts all performed by local people. Simon Heather is running a full bar all night and You’ll see a number of comedy sketches involving cricketers (Alan, JVDP, Ian, James) – and some good music with Tim, Rob Cross and many others.
If you haven’t seen Alan Blazey do his Tommy Cooper show then you’ve missed out in life……..anyway please do come along and help raise a few pounds for the club – it’s always one of the best nights in the village calendar.

All the best

Round up of last weeks matches

Our U13 side got the week off to a great start beating Brockley away to record their second victory in succession. Chippenham batted first making 142-7 and then dismissed the home team for 72.

On Wednesday our Midweek Evening League team visted Ely who had beaten us when we played them at home. Chippenham batted first and put up a very competitive score of 130, Charly Ratley scoring 47 N.O. and Matt Siggsworth 31 N.O. Ely were always struggling to reach that total and finished on 108, so a win by 22 runs for our side.

On Thursday our Midweek Afternoon side took on Camden at home. Chippenham batted first and made 214-7 dec, Alan Wright providing the backbone of the innings with 70. In reply Ollie Rix and James Grant took early wickets but a sucession of dropped catches let the opposition off the hook and they ran our comfortable winners by 7 wickets with 4 overs to spare.

On Saturday, both 1st and 2nd XI fixtures were abandanoed aafater about an hours play sue to the poor weather. Both sides had made good starts and were in a good position when the rain came.

On Sunday a fantastic effort by the groundstaff meant the game went ahead with a delayed start of 3pm. A close finished saw Gazeley bat the last over out for a draw with 9 wickets down.
