  • Wow that brings back memories. I was 13yrs old then, Ray Elvidge was my next door neighbour on Seventh Ave. My Dad Ted Baker played a little, my grandfather Edric Baker lived on the corner of Seventh at the cricket field entrance road, was an avid cricket fan. I remember watching many matches, and as a very young kid sitting in the loft of the club house with Ray and he let me do some scoring and filling the ledger. George Ward looked after the filed. Happy days.

  • If my memory serves me right, almost sure Ray Elvidge was for many years Club Secretary of the above cricket club. He was also Branch Manager of the local Co-op store in Clipstone for many years too.
    I’m sure the cricket club as well at the local Co-op store have seen many changes over the years.

  • I am delighted to see the photo and the recognition of John Curtis and his leadership in 1966. I played in this team that won the Bassetlaw League Championship.

    2016 is the 50th anniversary of this great performance. Is the club intending to celebrate this milestone in its history. If so I would like to attend. could you please let me know.

    I would also be pleased to make contact with John and come to spectate at a home fixture. Many thanks and good luck to you for 2016.
