Dunelm Cricket Society
at the time of the elevation of the County Cricket Club to First
Class status, the Dunelm Cricket Society aims to provide followers
of the team with the opportunity to meet each other socially at
games. It has the full support of the club's Directors, Staff and
Players, many of whom have regularly joined with members in the
Society concentrates on maximising support for the team at away
games, it has many members in the North-East too and holds one of
its functions annually at the Riverside Ground to provide these
members with an accessible opportunity to participate in our activities
and meet members from around the country. The Society's principal
event is an Annual Dinner held in London but we are also already
planning for 2001 a pre-season supper, a Players' Reception during
the game at Hove and informal get-togethers at other games, including
the two new venues at which we shall be playing, Gloucester and
members gathered at Trent Bridge, Tunbridge Wells, Ilford,
Basingstoke, Finchampstead, Southgate, Edgbaston, Taunton and The
Oval. Old friendships were renewed and many new ones forged in the
sociable environment provided by the match itself and adjacent hostelries.
We hope to see these supporters again in the coming months and welcome
new ones too.
Society is essentially non-profit making, we have managed each year
to donate any surplus funds to the Club for use in a practical way.
You may, for example, have noticed that some of the Academy players
last season were wearing track-suits bearing the Society's name
and we have other projects in mind for the future.
