REPL Funday Gallery

Last Sunday, REPL, the club’s main sponsor, held their annual charity cricket match and company summer party at Swans Nest Lane. All charitable proceeds went to the Molly Olly’s Wishes charity, REPL’s chosen beneficiary. It was a day of sunshine and showers, with a Twelve12 game of pairs cricket (Stratford XII victorious over REPL XII), a BBQ, auction, raffle and various inflatable attractions. Here are a selection of photos from the day.

Natwest Cricket Force Day

Great work today preparing the ground for the new season. After the flood last month, there was plenty of work needed at Swans Nest Lane especially, whilst a small team also helped out at Alscot Park. We were also joined by Warwickshire’s Jim Troughton, Keith Barket and Andy Ummed.

Stratford CC hit by floods

A few weeks ago, sustained overnight rain saw the River Avon burst its banks once again. Swans Nest Lane was completed flooded.

Thankfully the waters subsided quickly, whilst we’ve had a team working on the ground and the wickets. It’s been a big job and the Club is very appreciative of their help. There is still much to do – Groundforce Day is on Sunday 3rd April and we’ll need as many hands on deck as possible.

Here are some photos how the ground was looking:
