Phoenix Cricket XI 2021 Season

Jonathan Hammond (ON 1975-85), captain, invites Old Nottinghamians to enjoy the Phoenix Cricket XI 2021 season either on or off the field...

Following a successful year of cricket in 2019 and the disaster of 2020, I am pleased to say that I can now ask for your availability to play for the Phoenix XI in one of our matches in 2021.

Please confirm for as many of the following fixtures as you can. I will try to ensure that everyone who wishes to will get an opportunity to represent the Phoenix XI this year. However, if you are not selected for a particular match, it would be wonderful to see you cheering on the team and enjoying a glass or two from the boundary. (Please do bring your whites with you just in case we have a late withdrawal.) We play all of our matches at Adbolton Lane on Thursdays, starting at 6.00pm prompt to ensure as much light as possible.

1st July vs 'Hamians RFC for the Martin Wynne-Jones Trophy
22nd July vs Nottinghamshire Law Society for the Alan Wheelhouse Cup
5th August vs 'Hamians RFC POSTPONED
12th August vs Robin Hood XI
19th August vs 'Hamians RFC for the Martin Wynne-Jones Trophy

I look forward to receiving your reply via, including your availability for all of the matches. I will then send out confirmation of what’s what when I have worked out the team selection for each game. It may well be a case of ‘first come, first served’. Lauda finem!
