Charity six-a-side tournament
Sat 12-Jul-2014 
 

Gents, As you may or may not know we host charity 6-a- side tournament as an annual fixture in our calendar - playing cricket, having a few beers and raising money for St. Joseph's Hospice. The success of the day comes down to us finding teams willing to enter the tournament and helping out on the day, taking collection buckets round the Fields, umpiring, chipping in substitute players etc . Appreciate this is late notice, and you may already have fixtures in place, but we have the pitch on London Fields for this year’s tournament on Saturday 12th July. We would like to run an 8-team format this year - 2 x 4 teams round robin in groups followed by 2 semis and a final, and need to find three more teams to join us this year to make this happen. We suggest each team tries to bring 7 or 8 players along, as we’ll run an All Stars team with a player from each side - and we might need a few subs. The entry fee is £90 per team, which includes food (likely to be catered) and a couple of tinnies, water and snacks for each player. This is covered in the entry fee for players, and will be on sale for non-players on the day. All the proceeds other than that needed to pay the food stall will go to St Jo's hospice on Mare Street and we encourage all the entrants to do their bit for St Jo's in whatever way they can. Could you let us know if you're interested and can put in a team this year. We have left this later than we probably should, so a response ASAP would be good. The first 3 teams to say yes are in. Please reply to me on this email address and Ben cc'd. Hope to hear from you soon. All the best, Mark (on behalf of London Fields CC)
