Pairs Competiion & Presentation Evening

Another reminder that this annual end of season event will take places as last year at Orrell Red Triangle Cricket Club,Winstanley Road, Orrell, WN5 7XF, on Friday 9th November starting at 8.30pm sharp. For those unfamiliar with the venue, here are some directions for those without satnav. The Cricket Club can be found by turning up the track at the side of the YMCA at the bottom of Winstanley Road opposite Hewitt Business Park. Some might be relieved to know I will not be setting the questions this year - I am handing over the responsibility to the very capable hands of Paul McAteer.
