Marden Cricket Club Open Day, Sunday 26th April from 11.30

An opportunity to stay fit & sharp over the summer...
Our cricketing club-mates are looking for more players, and have set up an Open Day for Sunday 26th April, 11.30am for noon start. All are welcome, whether experienced cricketers or not, young or old. There will be cricket, refreshments and a chance to meet existing players. Please contact John Lugg on 07966 476625 for further details, or simply turn up on the day wearing suitable clothing to play in.
Given the natural advantages that we hockey players have, with good hand-eye coordination and at least some athleticism, it would be great to get some of our section along to strengthen the cricket club.
Please do try to get involved - even if you are only available a few times a season, that would be great. A number of hockey players are already active members of the cricket club, so please come and join us - see you there!

Hockey AGM, Monday 18th May - put it in your diary!

The Hockey AGM will be on Monday evening, 18th May, at the Clubhouse. Time to be confirmed, but will be either 7.30 or 8pm start - watch this space for confirmation in the next few days.

Do come along. 

An end of term message from the Club Captain...

And so another season ends, with some of us a year older and a year wiser, and some of us merely the former.
The senior section has enjoyed a feast of goals, at both ends, with more teams in the upper reaches of their respective leagues than the lower end; I would certainly have taken that at the start of the season.  The junior section now boasts 330 youngsters, who have trained and played matches across three 'home' venues, with many successes, both individual and team. See the junior newsletters for further details of their year.
We finished with a most enjoyable evening at The London Beach in Tenterden, and some of us even emerged into the light for more hockey the following morning.
My thanks go out to all who have contributed this season, including players, coaches, umpires, helpers, youth leaders, taxi drivers, café staff, bar staff , clubhouse manager, 'Jon the teas' and any others that I have inadvertently missed.
We have exciting times ahead, and I would encourage all club members, especially the valuable resource that comprises the parents of our junior members, to get involved in our transition from Stanley Road to Maidstone Road - just drop a note to Peter Rousseau or me.
Please keep en eye on the website, as the date for the Hockey AGM will be announced shortly - please do come along, so that you can help with decisions on the future of the club, including the details of our pending relocation.
I also hope to be able to report some summer hockey opportunities in the near future. Otherwise, have a great summer, and I will see you at pre-season training in early September.
