Brian Foulkes Memorial Match

22 Aug 2021

As you are all aware, life member of the club and local cricket stalwart Brian Foulkes passed away back in January of this year.

Now that we are once again able to meet in larger groups we will be holding a memorial cricket match at Shifnal CC this Sunday (29th August) to celebrate Brian’s life and to honour Brian’s impact and legacy at the cricket club.

The game will involve a Shifnal CC X1, captained by 1st X1 captain Chris Murrall, who will come up against an Invitational X1. The Invitational X1 will be made up of players that were coached by Brian along with some familiar faces who used to play for the club. The Invitational X1 will be captained by Shropshire captain Sam Whitney. The match will be 40 overs per side and will begin at 12.30pm.

The bar will be open and the BBQ will be on along with other refreshments being served throughout the afternoon with a bright weather forecast currently showing.

We would love as many of you as possible to join us on what promises to be a really enjoyable day and to give Brian the send off from the club that he really deserves. There will be plenty of benches, chairs and tables around the boundary, however, if people can bring their own chairs where possible to help us to spread round the ground that would be fantastic.
