BTCC Weekly Update – Last Junior Friday Night Training, Wine and Wickets, The End of an Era and More

Hi all

I knew by delaying sending this note until today rather than yesterday that the weather forecast for Friday would improve – which it has!

So we are all geared up for the last Junior Friday Night of the season – bar open as usual from 5.30pm, plenty of sausages and chips courtesy of Jackie and junior training starting at 6pm.

Please come and join us!

Wine and Wickets is This Friday from 6.30pm

After the wash-out for the last 2 Fridays ……

The prosecco and all drinks are on ice and the team are ready – Wine and Wickets will start at 6.30pm ……. so enough time to relax beforehand!

It doesn’t matter if you have never even picked up a bat or a ball or are a hidden professional. The session is for everyone and, based on previous experience, will be a huge amount of fun!

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible – if you need any more details please contact Kelly Luscombe – kellyluscombe

The End of an Era

Last weekend was Jackie Bradley’s last 1st XI Home Cricket Tea – this is genuinely the end of an era with Jackie having done teas (and more often that not more than the 1st XI, so 2nd XI, junior teams, Sunday teams, friendly games, touring games …… I could keep on going!) for ……. over 30 years!! In itself this is a massive achievement and one to be very proud about – but it’s more than that, much more than that!

Jackie’s teas are legendary – last year one of the Somerset players took photos of the tea and sent it back to the Somerset staff suggesting they could learn something ……. his feedback was "that has just taken teas to the next level". Even last week, when we hosted Devon Over 60’s vs Hampshire, they asked for "an ordinary tea" and got something absolutely "extraordinary". They were amazed!

Don’t worry though too much……. Jackie will be continuing with Friday nights ….. This year Jackie has already served over 2,000 portions of chips! …… multiply that over the years ………..

Jackie – on behalf of everyone at the club, thank you!
