7 03 2008

Due to a horrible weather forecast for tomorrow (consistent heavy rain) the visit by Scotland player John Blain to the cricket club tomorrow for a coaching clinic has been postponed by 2 weeks. He will be down instead on Saturday the 22nd March as per the same arrangements, and he will also bring down any equipment ordered or requested then. We hope that this date does not give problems to anyone wanting to attend.
