End of season 2007....


End of season celebrations in The Crown, with awards to Will Newell, Ben Thrasher and Gregson for best newcomers, Bob for best bowler, James (H) for best batter (being generous), and to Dad and Olly Middleton for best father son entertainment. Special award to Clive for alround contributions....Clive also unveiled for the first time the 'Little Staughton Ashes' to be contested each year between Village and Church sides (notes on this to follow). This year handed (grudgingly) by Church side captain Bernard Hopperton to Village captain and Master of Ceremonies Tony Moss. Special note of thanks to umpires Martin Banks and Roy Hopperton, fixtures secretary Jason Newell, all the ladies who have contributed to teas, and to Kevin and Maria at The Crown for cut price beer and fine food. All looking forward to successful season in 2008, pitch preparations already underway !....
