Town Malling Cricket Club will be taking a coach load of 54 children and adults to the match on 14th August at the St Lawrence cricket ground and I know that many club members and parents will be glowing with pride as the youngsters line up for the Guard of Honour. Our sponsors, Caxtons, will also be pretty pleased we’re sure – they agree that the juniors have excelled themselves."
Caxtons’ director David Gurton (a club member of Town Malling CC) said everyone involved with the juniors at Malling Town deserved praise. “I’m delighted they are going to form the guard of honour at Canterbury on the 14th. It’s a great tribute to the effort they have put in to their game this season and they richly deserve the recognition. To deserve this accolade and win the league championship only three years after being formed is truly remarkable. The future looks very bright indeed.”
