 THIRSK CRICKET CLUB NEW PITCH COVERS  
   

We are delighted to announce that Philip Robshaw has managed to secure a grant for some new cricket club covers.  

The covers are of test standard specification, and are bigger than a standard set.  The three units measure 8 x 4 metres each.  This will mean all match pitches will be covered adequately, including 2 meters of the bowlers run ups behind the stumps at either end.  The covers are 4 meters wide, which will provide two feet of extra coverage either side of the match pitch, as we cut our tracks 9 foot wide, not the standard 10.  The width is important, as the wheels will no longer run through the return crease markings, which are painted 8 foot 8 apart.

We have been actively trying to get better covers since 1998, and are now in a position to provide our members with the very best. (GHG)

 MARTYN PIGGY PIERCY (EASINGWOLD CC) GREAT NORTH RUN 2016  
   
As many of you will know late last year club Easingwold CC legend Martyn Piercy suffered from a terrible accident on the building site which has left him paralyzed. ‘Piggy’ started his 16 year association with Easingwold back in 1999 after signing from York and has since gone on to have a huge influence at the club being involved in three league triumphs in 2001, 2004 and 2006. In fact both the 2004 and 2006 titles were won under Piggy’s captaincy, and were no doubt the highlights of Piggy’s extremely successful 10 years as Easingwold captain.

On top of his leadership, Piggy also proved a crucial part of the team with the bat, with his extremely consistent performances at the top of the order seeing him register 77 half centuries and 10 centuries in league matches for Easingwold. In fact Piggy became part of a very exclusive club as one of only 3 players to have scored over 10,000 league runs in the Premier Division of the YDSL, a milestone which he passed this previous season. On top of this Martyn has also proved to be a very popular figure on and off the field.

As a result of what has happened, Martyn’s cousin Steve Piercy has decided to run the Great North Run to raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance charity. After Steve spoke to Martyn about doing the run it did not take long for both men to decide that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance was the charity that they wanted to support, as they rely solely on donations and play a crucial part in saving lives around Yorkshire, and were crucial in helping Martyn during his accident.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance relies solely on the generosity of the public to help save lives across the region, therefore we ask if people could generously donate what they can at the link https://www.justgiving.com/StevePig/ and support both Steve, Martyn and The Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

The ground can be found on Thirsk Racecourse and access is by Newsham Road.

 THIRSK RUFC 20TH ANNIVERSARY BALL SATURDAY 24TH SEPTEMBER 2016  
   

As you are probably aware Thirsk Rugby Club has been running for 20 Years and therefore to mark this event we are hosting a Grand Ball in a marquee outside TAC on 24 Sep 16.  I would like to take this opportunity to invite all members of Thirsk CC to join us.  Tables will be laid out for 10 people and it is hoped that the other sports may wish to purchase a table at the small cost of £50pp (£500 per table).  This cost includes a 4 course meal, Guest Speaker Mr John Bentley who represented England at both Union and League and also played for the British Lions. He will also act as auctioneer for the evening’s auction.  There will also be a raffle and disco to dance away the remainder of the evening. 

This should prove to be a very profitable evening for TAC as we will be using the main bar for all alcohol and drinks purchases, less a small wine/cocktail bar in the marquee. I hope you and some of the other members of TAC will join us for what promises to be a Grand Event in Black Tie.

I would appreciate it if you could mention this at your next meeting and look forward to any bookings from Thirsk CC.  RSVP before end of 31 Mar 16 to Maj Dave Wood at anniversaryball@thirskrufc.co.uk
