30 Aug 2017 : 'BACKING BLACKBURN' SHOCK THE 6 A-SIDE!

Against all the odds, Harry Blackburn's team took the prize of 6 a-side winners!

The final was contested between 'Backing Blackburn' and the 'Knightmares', consisting of four of the Knight family, and a one-sided affair saw Backing Blackburn lift the coveted trophy. Shock group stage exits for the Heavyweights and Ed Duckworth's MotherDuckers, paved the way for Blackburn's underdogs to reach the final and they turned on the magic when it was needed.

It was a great day in the baking sun that raised some money for Connecting Clubs International and the club, and most importantly allowed all sections of the club to have fun at London Road. Thanks go to Mike Adams and the grounds team for preparing the pitch, Andy Hooper and Dave Howard for umpiring, and Lesley Morgan and Treina Adams for scoring.

15 Jan 2016 : SUPPER CLUB IS NOW OPEN!

A new fundraising initiative has started at ACC and it tastes good! 

We are asking people to host an evening at their own homes for fellow members of the cricket club by invite only and charge a small fee for the food and drink they serve up. It really is that simple. 

In small groups of likeminded people, take turns to make supper and invite people round to your home to enjoy the evening. Everyone contributes £10 (or more if they feel like it!) to the host and all money raised goes to the club towards our new pavillion fund. Once you have done your turn, you then get to enjoy the food at other people's homes. It is a great way to socialise with people from the club all year round.

This can start immediately. If you want to host an evening but don't know who to invite (if you're new to the club for example), then please get in touch with Dilys Williams or Ali Hooper who will be able to help you plan your evening. If your home can only hold 6 or 4 people, still go ahead with it because every penny counts and you'll still have a great evening.  

If you want to share your evening then feel free to tweet @andovercricket with the #ACCsupperclub or post pictures/stories to our Facebook page and we will share it with all our followers (of which there are over a 1,000 now!). 

Enjoy the food!
