With the rest of the week set fair, we can finally look forward to a weekend of cricket at Dulwich Common with the colts training commencing next week! There are four games for the seniors at home over the weekend and a repeat the following week. If you are looking for a game, get in touch with our Chair of Cricket (Raj Patel) on firstname.lastname@example.org, 07983 452 211 or via the club Facebook page.
In the meantime, there are a few events coming up that I need to make you aware of…
