Sad News

I am sorry to report that George Harvey (ex NSWE) sadly passed away on Monday 29th January. George's funeral will take place on Friday 16th February at 2.15pm at Tynemouth Crematorium, and afterwards at Percy Main Cricket Club. 

Our thoughts at this difficult time are with George's family and friends. 


Team Manager Vacancy

The GPC are inviting applications / interested parties for the role as County First Team Manager. The role would be for selection and Manager of both the Muras and Middleton Cup teams, along with the Balcomb team for the 2018 season.

This situation has only just arisen and the GPC would like to thank the previous team manager Stan Lant for all his hard work, efforts and commitment over the last 2 seasons - where Northumberland qualified in the Middleton Cup Semi Final / Final stage for the first team in 29 years, and also just missed out on lifting the Balcomb Trophy (County Double Rinks) in 2017 (losing on the very last end).

Any interested individual should contact George Batey, and no later than 28th February 2018.


Competition Draws

The 2018 BN Men's County Competitions are now available - please see latest news / or competitions for full draw.

The dates are being worked on, and also the Mixed Pairs hasn't been drawn as yet - both of these aspects will be completed this month.
