Badgers’ dinner – no more left to Hatch??

A fifth, and probably last since the place is up for sale, visit to the South Hatch Restaurant on Epsom Downs for the Badgers’ presentation dinner. The Skip and Chairman did their now standard double act, mainly to avoid Mark presenting himself with the usual array of trophies, and it looked to me like everyone enjoyed themselves. For the record, the trophies and mementos (for the less regular recipients of the sundry cups), found their way to:

BattingMark Gordon556 runs @ 39.7
BowlingBill Jenkins23 wickets @ 13.5
FieldingMark Gordon25 catches
CaptainsSteve Pitts 
Frank ButtIan Gregg(for his maiden fifty at Ockley)
‘Wang Fu’Jake Gordon 
‘Commemorative Mug’ AwardPat Redding 

There were a fair few milestones mentioned during the speeches, most of which were obviously cribbed from my statistical notes. I see no reason to trawl through the match reports and collect together another list of those achievements, but one thing that Mark spotted and pointed up was the number of Badgers that made their highest score for the club during the 2013 season – he got them all to stand up and it seemed like more than half the players in the room were on their feet.

Presentation Dinner details

The annual presentation dinner will take the same format and be in the same location as the last four years, the South Hatch Restaurant, which can be found on Burgh Heath Road in Epsom. The event will take place on Saturday 16th November, with the bar open from 18:30 (6.30pm), dinner at 19:30 (7.30pm) and carriages at midnight. The cost per head is £27.50 and once again there will not be a disco so that those of us that prefer to talk at such events have the chance to do so.

I have added the exact location of the restaurant to the Google Map showing the grounds we play on or you can use this one from Streetmap if you prefer a more traditional map.

Badgers in book form

“Gentlemen, Gypsies and Jesters, The Wonderful World of Wandering Cricket” a book written by Stephen Chalke and Anthony Gibson in support of the Cricket Foundation’s Chance to Shine project due to be published in July 2013 The Badgers feature in a book on wandering cricket produced by the Cricket Foundation in support of their Chance to Shine programme and released in July 2013. The book has been edited by Anthony Gibson and Stephen Chalke, with the former helping sundry interested Badgers compile a fifteen hundred word piece on the club. Click on the picture to the right, which is a much reduced version of the cover of the book – Gentlemen, Gypsies and Jesters, The Wonderful World of Wandering Cricket – to download a PDF of the flyer promoting the book which has a little more detail on the contents of the book along with details of how to order, or simply go straight to the Nomadic Cricket page linked from that flyer.
