Meeting Thursday 21st April

We have our usual monthly meeting on Thursday 21st April at Rochdale Cricket Club. With most people being out on night games, we decided to do something a little different and not to have a guest speaker. Instead we will be doing an open forum with a panel, giving you the chance to ask any question you wish. We will still have the usual favourites such as Matt’s entertaining quiz on the Laws on the Game and referees queries. We are trying to line up some video clips for discussion too. Please send any apologies and senior appointments to See you all on the 21st at 7:30pm


Three of our very own Referees have been appointed to officiate the Lancashire Challenge Trophy Quarter Final between Atherton Collieries and Padiham on Monday December 7th. Well done to Dean Watson, Conor Brown and Matt Archibald. If you’re free that evening, get yourselves over and show them some support!!
