Match fees, bar prices and commemorating HRH Duke of Edinburgh


'The club and players will observe a 2 minute silence at 3.00pm on Saturday in honour of HRH Duke of Edinburgh'

As the opening match of the season coincides with the funeral of Prince Philip, the club and players will observe a 2 minute silence at 3.00pm on Saturday.

Prince Philip was a keen cricketer and was the only person to hold the Presidency of the MCC twice, taking the position in 1949 and then later in 1974. It was as President of the MCC that he awarded Clive Lloyd the first World Cup after the West Indies beat Australia in the final of the first ever World Cup held at Lord's in 1975. Read more about the Prince's cricket connections.

Match fees

The match fees for all friendlies will be £5.00 per player. Could all players please ensure that they have this with them on match days.

We are not having teas at matches for the time being so it is likely that match fees will remain at this level for some time.

The Bar

  • Above you can see the prices for the bar.
  • The bar will be open from 3.00pm on Saturday and Sunday closing at 10.00pm, depending on the demand.
  • There will be no cask beer but bottled beers and 'Pukka Pies' will be available.
  • The pies are either Beef & Onion, Steak, Chicken & Mushroom or Leek & Potato. Best to place your order beforehand for pies by texting Darren on Saturday AM on 07957 144224 so they can ensure they are warm and ready for you.
  • It will be outside service and social distancing, rule of 6 must be observed.
