Prue Gibson

We have just heard that Prue Gibson died peacefully on Wednesday 24th January in Lewisham Hospital. Prue had recently celebrated achieving her 100th birthday in November as the photograph below with Sir Steve Bullock, the Mayor of Lewisham shows.  Prue had been married to Tom Gibson for 57  years with much of their early days of marriage involved watching head teacher Tom leading Dulwich 3rd XI and 2nd XI sides home and away. Tom was a good club cricketer but his real forte was developing team spirit and coaching youngsters. Prue naturally brought the children on weekend afternoons where young Jimmy was soon smitten with the cricket bug.

Prue was nobody’s fool and her assessment of the game and cricketers made conversations interesting.  When Tom retired, both came regularly to home weekend and midweek matches with Tiger, their Yorkshire terrier.  After Tom’s death in 2000, Prue continued her interest in the club although her visits became less frequent as illness and old age limited her mobility. Anyone who met Prue could not fail to see her evident sense of humour, her inner practicality and a real commitment to her core values. Prue will be much missed and those knowing her will always recall the twinkle in her eye when she talked about Tom and her pride in her families many achievements.

The funeral arrangements will be available from Jim Gibson by email to jimbargibs@yahoo.co.uk

New players for 2018

Who We Are 

With a proud tradition running back over 150 years, Dulwich CC is South London's most central cricket club playing high level Surrey Championship cricket.

We run 7 teams on a Saturday, 5 of which play league cricket. Our ground has just undergone redevelopment which included the addition of brand new state of the art nets.

As you would expect with our proximity to the capital, we have a vibrant social atmosphere where players come to enjoy hard fought competitive cricket, but where cricket also forms a key part of their social life.

What We Are Looking For

We have some ambitious targets that involve improved and sustained success. We are looking to recruit high performing 1st and 2nd XI players to join our cause – not just for a season but to be part of our club and part of achieving these goals.

What You Can Expect From Us

We appreciate that people joining our club are committing their Saturdays for entire summers. We therefore commit to making sure that you have the best support to ensure you can perform and develop as a player at our club:

  • Winter net practice at The Oval, home of Surrey CC
  • Two weekly net sessions throughout the summer with our qualified coaches
  • Ad-hoc access to our net facilities and bowling machine
  • One-to-one coaching sessions throughout the season
  • Free playing shirt and cap for every member
  • A lot of fun (just check out a video one of a players made from a game)
