On Friday 22nd April – Sunday 24th April; 22 CCC tourists embarked on what is now an annual pre season tour. This year the destination was Nottingham where we stayed in the centre of town for two nights. We were looked after superbly well by our hosts Ellerslie CC on the Saturday and Rolleston CC on the Sunday. Sadly, as is often the way on tour; both games resulted in losses for CCC, but Saturday’s game in particular was a very tight affair, Ellerslie just edging it by one run. A special mention must go to our bus driver Alan who had a bat for us on Sunday when wickets were beginning to tumble ‘he bats when he wants’.
To give you a flavour of the rest of the weekend, it included; The letter ‘N’, D Rives, Ace of Base (always), A wedding booking, A Cocktail Sausage, Wibbly Wobbly, Half a yard, Getting off the pitch, An early check out and a Jager breakfast to mention a few….
A MASSIVE congratulations to our first team skipper Mr Josh Hornsby who won the most sort after award of ‘Tourist of the Year’ joining Ben Geeson Brown, Oliver Hollings and Craig Moss as previous winners. Dean Warner Carter must have a mention as runner up (1st looser).
Another hugely enjoyable weekend; a big thank you to all on the Tour Committee for their efforts.
