Christmas jumper get together
Here's our winner for the unofficial prize of best Christmas jumper (and matching head piece). Can you guess who it is?
A great turn out from everyone on December 2nd to have a few drinks and a mince pie as our final get together before Christmas.
Look out for AGM dates coming soon and possible news of a new Worcestershire League mid week knockout Twenty 20 competition aimed specifically at 1st XI's in Divisions 3 to 5.
Merry Christmas and please remember to keep re-tweeting the Boars Cricket Advent Calender.
We're hoping to get the Jayden Levitt surprise trip to South Africa on Youtube soon - the Facebook video has over 19,000 views so far.

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.
