THE PASSING OF FORMER CLUB PRESIDENT, GRAHAM MARTIN.

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former club President Graham Martin.

Graham was a true unsung hero of the club, helping keep the club going through the toughest of times. He could turn his band to anything, he helped with maintenance at the club and as well as much more that many people didn’t see.

At times he literally helped keep the roof up over the head of us!

A few years ago Graham moved up to Scotland to be closer to family.

Graham will be deeply missed by lots of people especially us at Astley Bridge CC. Thanks to our Chairman, Dave for saying a few words and leading a round of applause before our 2nd team match yesterday.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Graham’s family at this time. Rest In Peace Graham.

HUGE THANKS TO PRINCIPAL SPONSOR ROCCIA

Huge thanks to our principle sponsor Roccia - Tiles, Bathrooms and Kitchens for their support, sponsoring our senior T20 & training kit as well as our juniors!

Slight disappointment in our exit from the T20 competition after topping our

group, we had high hopes of making our way into finals day!

Nonetheless a great achievement from a young and inexperienced side at that level.

Give Roccia a visit in their showrooms in Bolton & Preston, also have a look on their website. They are always friendly and welcoming with great customer service!
