150 Silk ties and bow ties
The one off 150 silk ties produced by Filaspun – a well-known Bradford firm specialising in club ties have arrived and can be ordered by email to John Smith.

The ties are being offered at an early bird price of £15. The ties combine the club colours of silver, blue and purple stripes with the 150 insignia. A small order has also been made for bow ties in the club colours – these can be obtained for the same price.

Get ready for the club celebrations at Lords in the Long Room on Friday 29th September!

Traditional caps with 150 badge
Many of us are now wearing the DCC baseball style caps but for the 150 we have also ordered traditional cricket caps from Gentlemen and Players. The traditional cap offers a little sophistication. We have made a limited purchase so get in early to buy a cap that will look a little special. Please make your order by email to John Smith. The first tranche of traditional style caps will cost £20, we cannot guarantee to hold the price this low for later orders. Please move quickly to place that order.

Club dinner in the Long Room at Lords

The Club will celebrate our 150th anniversary with a Lords weekend. We have booked a four-course dinner from 7pm on Friday 29th September in cricket’s HQ on the day before the juniors and a Club X1 play on the Nursery ground. The Club dinner will be open to all members of the Sports Club, their guests and former players. The guests will be addressed by a special guest speaker and the event should not to be missed.

The capacity is only 200 people and we anticipate a waiting list. Sponsors are being approached so that this event can be offered to members at a reduced rate. Members are advised to reserve their place early and to note that bookings are being taken for tables of ten. Full details will be available soon.

We welcome the active support of members for all these events. Please feel free to make suggestions (or even better offer help) to the organisers by contacting John Smith at john@jgsmith.org.uk or 07831 638 775
