Captain's Bulletin

Season 2018

  • Team Captains are organising roll ups so please avail yourselves of them when its possible. Also tick off your availability for the season.
  • The ' Big Kick-Off '. League matches for the season commenced from Monday April 16 through to mid September. As always spectators/helpers are welcome at all Hallam Grange matches---- and its going to be a 'heatwave' that week!
  • The Sheffield and Hallamshire matches started last Tuesday (10/04). The A team  were waterlogged so that has been rearranged but the B team played down at Fulwood and pulled off a very good win 6-4. A good start to the season for them especially when they lost there last year 10-0. Well done.
  • This Saturday (14/ April) is another Club Day starting at 2.00pm. Miraculously we played last Saturday. Maybe we can do it again this Saturday.
  • This Sunday [15/04/18] is the first running of our new competition, 'The Champion of Champions' from 11.00am to between 3 and 4.00pm but the green will be available before and after these times.
  • Saturday April 21 starting at 2.00pm is our 'Bring a Friend Day'. We have 17 friends coming already. Thank-you. There is room for a few more but this is a good effort. Of course if a friend wants to come in the morning or on another day bring them along. I or Steve will send out more details next week. We have some woods in the pavilion of course but if you have spare woods it would be better to bring them along for your friends.
  • I have put up a notice for our first friendly of the season against Tideswell BC on Saturday April 28 starting at 2.00pm at Hallam Grange. Please sign up. There are 16 places but the friendlies are always popular so sign up quickly even if it seems that you are a reserve. People do drop out so you will get a game. Also sign up for the refreshments that you can bring along. In addition to the home friendly against Abbeydale we do sit down for the meal in the main pavilion so I will need some help and lots of food. As always a reminder that players are expected to stay for the meal and to sit/look after their opponents.
  • I have put up forms for those of you who want to join the 100 Club. This is a fund raising venture for the overall Club and costs £24/year. Obviously there is a financial reward if your number is drawn out.
  •  After discussions with the Club Chairman, Chris has said that the unsafe flags at the far side of the Green will be sorted and made safe when the grounds people come to fix the sunken manhole on the drive.
  • Finally a reminder that in my last email I said when the Green was clear so that members can just come down and roll up and enjoy the game. Just sign up in the Diary in the pavilion.


Best Wishes,

John Turner,
      Club Captain

The New Boiler:

The new boiler has been installed and it is very simple to use. The boiler is automatic. It fills up automatically and it heats up automatically. The only thing you need to touch is the tap at the front of the boiler to get the hot water. Do not fiddle with anything else.

 Fox Poo ....

The gutters around the green may have allsorts of debris in them. Should you ever feel the inclination to clear the gutters please do so but one word of warning. Mr. Fox is around. You may come across fox poo so use gloves/shovel or whatever. Do you still feel the inclination?

Other Information

If any inexperienced members would like a roll up at a quieter time or a time at their convenience, please contact me (John Turner) and we will sort out a game. My mobile number is 07787554036 or email me.

As always general supporters are welcome at any Hallam Grange match. It is lovely to see people there.


   For all results see the Results Pages here.



    An ongoing reminder that in line with our do's and don'ts in the updated handbook, [and hard copies are in the pavilion], please continue to walk round the green in all matches rather than crossing the line of play. We all forget at times and most other teams have scant regard for it, but it is the Hallam Grange way.
    Also on the website is an Honours Board which has been updated from the records dug out by Liz Murray. These mostly go back to around 1997. If you are aware of winners previous to the earliest entry in the Rolls of Honour please can you let Roger Langdon know  (click to email or leave a note in the clubhouse) so these can entered onto the Honours Boards?
