A sincere thank you from John and Kay Price

Thursday 3 October 2013, 7.32pm

With all the wonderful magic of modern media, we are sure there are much slicker ways of saying “thank you” to all the people who have worked so hard to help stoolball and stoolballers enjoy the last three weekends of England training and matches at the beautiful Horsham Cricket club ground. We were blessed with pretty good weather and in all three groups of matches, Under 21s, over 50s and the full England squad, we witnessed some exciting performances.

Much time, energy and effort from a large number of people was required to make it all happen. Quite unashamedly we record below the names of all those who contributed to the success of the three weekends and sincerely hope that we haven’t forgotten anyone.
