14 Sep 2017 : Last Weekend of the Season

With the final cricketing weekend approaching, take time to come and support your club one last time before the shutters come down on the season.

On Saturday, a select GPR XI are taking on our U16/U18 team in a friendly (not!) 40 over game at Gallows. The match starts at 12.30pm (bar open from 1.30pm).  Should be a great opportunity for the colts to get one over the senior players and stake a claim for their spot next year ! 

Then on Sunday, following a very successful season, the U15s will be taking on Woodford Wells or Loughton in the final of the Cox and Kings Cup.  The 20 over match is at Woodford Wells (IG8 0NL) and starts at 2.30pm. 

Your support is appreciated.
