WILTSHIRE WALLOP CHAMPIONS 2014
Sun 5th July-another busy but rain affected day. In the morning our U9s performed very well at the tournament they were at,the U11s fought well but lost to South Wilts,and the U19s had a thrilling last ball win at Marlborough.In the afternoon the U15s were 200-3 when rain halted their game at Marlborough and the friendly side hardly got started in their game.Special mention to Tommy Joyce for his excellent 71 no for the u19s and to Jon Woods for his 94no for the u15s. But performance of the day must surely go to Rosie Pembroke who,playing 2 years above her actual age group,scored an unbeaten century for Wilts U15 girls-well done !
Sat 4th July-well done to the 1sts,2nds and 4ths who won today.Sadly the 3rds lost.
The Wurzels-what a night! A fantastic time was had by nearly 1800 people-many thanks to all who came along and especially to our army of volunteers and sponsors who made the evening go so well-we are very grateful indeed.A substantial sum of money has been raised for the club as well as for the Potterne Church roof fund.A chunk of this has already been committed to be spent on a new outfield mower.Thanks of course too,to the three acts that made the evening so special-The Wurzels.Corky and The Wardrobe Monsters.
