Bromsgrove Cricket Club
On Saturday, the Club paid tribute to VP, Groundsman and Friend Bob Green who sadly passed away last week. Dave Gower made a short but heart felt speech before conducting the 44 players in a minutes applause. The players stood either side of the last pitch that Bob prepared. Thanks to both Old Vigornians and Old Elizabethans for their support on the day.
We would also like to thank George Rhodes and Barnards Green Cricket
Club for their show of support at the weekend as well as the very many
Club's who have sent messages of support through social media.
Bob's cremation will be held on Mon 27th April 3:30pm at the Robin Hood Crematorium in Shirley (B90 3NL). The cars will travel from Bromsgrove Cricket Club at approx 2:20pm. The wake will follow back at Bromsgrove Cricket Club from around 5pm.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
