THANK YOU TO Tom Morgan, who has been a member of the club
for 33 years and played cricket for 25 of these. During
his playing time he skippered the sides for 17 years which
makes him the longest serving Captain. Tom has always been
a great asset, and together with his wife and family has
arranged many successful social gatherings. Tom is still
an active member, being a Trustee and member of the Management
THANK YOU TO Dennis Smith for his years of patiently standing
Umpire. Dennis, an already reliable Umpire joined the Wolverhamptpn
Umpires Association on Pelsall's entry into the Wolyerhampton
& District Cricket League, and we were very proud, when
in 1979, he won the R. McGrath Umpires Trophy. Although
he has been unable to stand umpire regularly over the past
two seasons, due to other commitments, he hopes to do so
this season in our Centenary Celebration matches.
It is encouraging to see that in 1985 our Centenary Year
there will be five players in our teams who have served
the Club between them for 139 years. The longest serving
of these is Ron Perry, who has notched up 34 years, playing
in 1st and 2nd teams and who has spent hours of his time
preparing wickets and working on the ground. Next we have
Mike Jennings, who has played for 31 years, again in 1st
and 2nd teams and who helps with the running of the Youth
teams. Edwin Barton has played for 29 years in both teams
and it is to Edwin our thanks must go for arranging our
Whitsun Tours each year. Lawrence Bennett has been with
us for 25 years and is our Cricket Section Chairman. We
have to thank Laurie for introducing Youth Cricket back
into the club and he is their Manager. He is also 2nd team
Captain on Saturdays and Sundays. Last but not least we
have Colin Hooker, who has played for Pelsall for 20 years.
Colin is our current Cricket Section Treasurer and works
very hard on the ground and square and is instrumental in
rallying working parties.
