fixtures, check your club’s details in the database (which because it is updated
every week is always more up-to-date than the printed version), refer to the rules

is with great sadness we heard of the death of former Robertsbridge CC player
and captain John Oakley. John captained our 2nd XI for many years. As a captain
John was confident, humorous, astute and full of guile. He was an accomplished
left hand bat and right hand bowler. Many of our players will not remember John,
but you may remember him as a panel umpire for some years. You will be missed
John. RIP. Allan Hughes
Just a brief reminder that it is essential to mark both umpires and to include their initial and surname because we have umpires with the same surname. (Chris Bates) please report to 07858 209 288
