Opening Ceremony - UTCC v MCC XI May 2011...

Cartoon

Kev Bennett presented on behalf of the club a commissioned cartoon of Charlie Scott and Dick Reeve - both of whom have contributed much to the relocation to Castle Hill.

The cartoon was created by Patrick Latham of Oakham - the official cartoonist of The Barmy Army. More of Patrick's work can be found at the following website  >>>>>>

We were not blessed with very good weather during the course of the weekend - and as such sadly had to cancel the fixture with the MCC ahead of the ceremony.

 

That said, the club, its supporters, guests and players turned out in what were very wet conditions to ensure we celebrated the opening of Castle Hill in a memorable way.

 

Charlie Scott welcomed everyone, in particular our guests of honour which included our community sponsors, local dignatories, Mike Turner MBE and John Huband of the ECB at Edgbaston.

 

Mike Turner had the honour of opening the ground bu unveiling a plaque and ringing the start of play bell.
