Clive Vale Cricket Club Turns 100!

UPDATE: NEW DATE 18TH AND 19TH SEPTEMBER 2021

Unfortunately due to the latest lockdown restrictions not being implemented as hoped on the 21st June it has been necessary to postpone the centenary events scheduled for the weekend of the 3rd & 4th July.

Fortunately we had a reserve date of 18th & 19th September pencilled in with Horntye, to cover such an eventuality. The format will be exactly the same with a social evening on the Saturday starting at 7pm followed by an interclub game of members past and present on the Sunday afternoon. For those of you who have already paid for the social evening please let us know if you want the club to reimburse you should you not be able to attend the revised date and we will arrange for this to be done.

I know that we always ask this but we would be grateful if you could indicate ASAP as to whether you would be able to attend these revised dates and if you are interested in playing on the Sunday, so that we have an indication of the continuing interest. Please email Peter Emanuel at CVCC100@yahoo.com or ring him on 07909517431.

HOPEFULLY 3RD TIME LUCKY

2020 sees the 100th birthday of Clive Vale Cricket Club and they propose to celebrate it in style - all members both past and present are most welcome. The events are centred on the weekend of July 11th & 12th and comprise a social evening on the Saturday being held at Horntye, home of Hastings Priory CC, and now the traditional club match on the Sunday afternoon comprising teams made up from members past and present.

If you are an ex-member and would like to come along to both or either of the events the club ask that you express your interest by either emailing them at CVCC100@yahoo.com or by phoning or texting Peter Emanuel on 07909 517431.

Also any ex-members out there are asked to ensure they tell friends or family who may have played for the club, of the events so that as many people as possible have the chance to attend what should be a great weekend of nostalgia. In addition, if you are looking to play cricket and want to join the famous old club, let Peter know and he will be happy to put you in touch with the club captain, Carl Brook.
