It’s cold, windy and dark at tea time. It’s too cold to go out most evenings. No wonder we get the winter blues.

Shotley take a catch last summer

After months of spending our nights at home it’s time to get ready for summer and long days in the sun with a glass of wine or beer to hand.

Oh well I can dream but it’s a fact that we all feel better when the sun shines.

When the weather does get better there is no better place to spend an afternoon or evening than Shotley Bridge Cricket Club. With a match on most evenings and weekends there is always an excuse to pop out for a drink whilst taking in the delightful views of the Spa Grounds.

New players and social members are always welcome at a club where our motto is “more than just a cricket club”. Formed in 1888 we have been a mainstay of the village since Victoria was Queen. If she came back to day she would see that the Club is alive and well and there is still a Collingwood playing for us.

Our teams had a successful season last year and we are keen to attract more youngsters to our weekly development sessions. Every Thursday evening in the summer our dedicated coaches impart the fundamental cricketing skills which young boys and girls will need as they progress through our junior teams. If your child is over eight and keen to learn the game, keep fit and learn new skills then we would like to hear from you. Tel 01207 505236.

Banish your blues and make the most of your summer at Shotley Bridge Cricket Club.
