RIP – Peter Mitchell

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Peter Mitchell. 

Peter played for the 1st & 2nd XI in the 60s-80s .  He was a Batsman and Wicket Keeper and one of the members that first helped build the Clubhouse that stands on the ground today.  In later decades he regularly supported the Club in his role as a Vice-President.  He will be deeply missed. 
Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Barry, Sarah, family and friends.

CLUBHOUSE VANDALISED

On Monday 30th December, we were stunned and shocked to find that our Clubhouse had been ransacked overnight.  Thieves/Vandals broke in through one of the windows but then proceeded to throw chairs, glasses, bottles, pictures etc through all the other windows.  They tried to kick in the double-glazed doors and the fire exits.  They broke into the bar smashed the optics, poured themselves drinks and then went on to have a  destructive frenzy.  Furniture was thrown around the building into the TV, PA System and the framed pictures showing all the history of our club.  

These despicable characters also went into the kitchen ripping cupboard doors off, yanked the telephone and router out of the wall.  They trashed the credit card machine, the cash till and most sickeningly they ripped the defibrillator off the wall, which was left scattered around in pieces.

Their final present to us was to let off all the fire extinguishers (both powder and water) which left a horrible mess but also their foot and handprints.  Forensics have taken excellent evidence from this along with DNA from the glasses and bottles that they drank from.

The culprits will not be able to get away with this heartbreaking, thuggish behaviour and we urge people to contact the police with the names of these people. 

Anyone with information relating to the burglary/vandalism are encouraged to call 101 quoting IML600400. 

We have also set up a Just Giving page to help raise funds for the repair and replacement of damaged items.

Christleton under 13’s through to a Cheshire cup final

We are pleased to announce that following a good win against Davenham on Tuesday, Christleton U13s have made the finals of the 2019 North Cheshire Junior Cricket Association Cup. Having won the toss Christleton Captain Thomas Duffy had no hesitation in electing to bat first. Following a slow start Toby Holland (25) and Freddie Heyland (55n.o.) put on over 60 for the 2nd wicket with a selection of sound defensive shots & aggressively putting the bad balls away for boundaries. Aaron Joinson scored a quickfire 15 at the death to take the total to an imposing 139 off their 20 overs.

Davenham started off launching the ball to all parts of the ground as their openers went about their task admirably. But Oli Neve took the crucial wicket in his 2nd over which slowed up the run rate and allowed Christleton to regain control off the game. Wickets fell consistently throughout the next 16 overs, Joinson again enjoying success with the ball & Monty Robson took two crucial catches which allowed Christleton to cruise to a comfortable 30 run victory.

This game marks the end of what has been a fantastic season for the U13s – we have seen significant improvement across all areas, a real sense of team unity & camaraderie has developed and some of the cricket we have witnessed this year has been very pleasing.

The final will be played on September 8th against Weaverham.
