As the sun set on another season at Speedwell as the Chairman of this great club, I had a massive sense of pride at what we had achieved as a club in such unprecedented times. Deep into the summer Cricket seemed such a dream to us all and I must go on record and congratulate the Derbyshire and Cheshire Cricket League for all their hard work getting the game on.

To all our players senior and junior a massive thanks for rolling your sleeves up and getting into it. No changing rooms, standing in the rain and bringing your own teas but you have all been a credit to the club. Also, to the parents and members who have stuck with us and supported the club both financial over the bar and with the extra measures being imposed which have been observed impeccable.
This year has also seen us lose several good friends to the club and again our continued thoughts go out to the families.

I am always amazed and in gratitude to the countless people who sponsor the club year on year and even more so in 2020 in such uncertain times. My personal thanks goes to Tom and Alice at Syndicate as our principle sponsor, Ben and Rachel at BDS our principle junior sponsor and all our other amazing sponsors Martyn at Davis Blank Furniss, Arthur Worsley Funeral, Albert Jones Memorial, Toe Touch, Mike at Cross Field Accountants, Four Seasons Flowers, Peter at Atlanta Hair Care and Karl at Vortex for their support in 2020.

I am delighted to tell you that both Tom at Syndicate and Ben at BDS have confirmed their renewed support as our principle sponsors for 2021. Glen and Debrian at Albert Jones and Toe Touch, Marie at Four Seasons and Jason at Arthur Worlsey have also renewed for 2021 and we are absolutely delighted. We also welcome Paul and Fiona from Alberti Pavimenti and Dave from Advanced Ripening Technologies to our 2021 sponsors list and look forward to seeing all our sponsors at Speedwell in 2021.

I would also like to send my thanks to all our other valued friends who have donated this year to the club with match ball sponsorships, Dot and Kev Barber, Life member Mike Barber and Lynda Barber, Lynn Davies, Brenda Worsley, Dennis Wild, John Crossland, Mike Dwyer, Joyce Hollingworth, Neil and Lynda Robinson, Sheila Harrop, Tony Wallis and Warwick Coultard.

The support and donations of all our sponsors is hugely appreciated and we are always keen to speak to people who are interested in any of our club, matchday or match ball sponsorship packages. For further details please click on the link below for more details.


So that’s me signing off for another year. In the next few days, we are expecting a response back from Sports England regarding the funding for our new clubhouse. So, my next article in the new year might carry some news on when that will happen (fingers crossed). Until then from all at TCC stay safe and well, enjoy the festive break when it arrives and see you back at Speedwell in 2021.
