1874 NORTHWICH PLAYED CRICKET AT DAVENHAM LAST SUNDAY
Board member Gary Halvorsen can now always say that he has captained 1874 Northwich (and no doubt he will be telling his grandchildren this in years to come!) but at the same time Gary’s son Tom has the bragging rights in his family as he “sent his dad packing” after claiming his wicket when Gary’s team mates were looking to their leader to score heavily to help the cause!
The weather was kind and everyone enjoyed the afternoon and the cricket but alas the home side were too good (on the day!) for 1874.
Thankfully we can report that our older players have recovered well and should be fit and raring to go for the next game – given that it is likely to be in 12 months time!
The 1874 side comprised of a few Board members and 1874 members – a blend of youth and not so young, fit and not so fit but all were keen and eager and seeing John Coats; James Wood; Alex Dickinson and skipper Gary flinging themselves about in the field will live long in the memory”!
Vice Captain Alex Dickinson said “Probably the highlight of 1874’s fielding was a remarkable dropped catch by Gary. It was similar to a seal at Chester Zoo flapping for some fish!!”
However as Vicki England writes “Gary went on to make a catch and the crowd sang “there’s only one Gary Halvo, one Gary Halvo” – memories it was like watching Streety’s men on a Saturday – well perhaps NOT!!
For the record Chris Edge top scored for 1874 and also took 4 wickets
Chairman Paul Stockton ably assisted by Commis chef Dave Stiles were in charge of the BBQ which seemed to go down well with everyone (as did the wonderful real ale available from the excellent bar at Davenham Cricket Club)
A good gathering of 1874 supporters appreciated the cricket, the BBQ and of course the chance to buy raffle tickets from Toddy
Dan Duxbury; Callum Waters; Andy Lowe; Clive Lloyd; James Wood & Will Hughes
Chris Edge; Matty waters; John (lightening) Coats, Oliver Dickinson & Ollie’s old man
1874 MATCH DAY PROGRAMME – 2015/16
As we all start to prepare for our third season (how quickly does time fly!) we would like to thank everyone for buying our Match day programme on a regular basis and indeed some 1874 fans are so keen to avoid “missing out” on their read that they actually reserve a programme for each game (we then ensure that these “reserved programmes” are safely kept with Pam in the shop awaiting collection (and payment) as and when. So if anyone else wants to avail themselves of this service then please let us know.
In the last two seasons we have done exceptionally well on the field but we have also done well as far as our programme is concerned:
Our sales are good and thanks to a number of our supporters (notably Toddy Barlow and Mike Wood) we have a good selection of local companies supporting us by placing advertisements in our programme. Our programme editor – Andy Dignum – tries to ensure that there is a good balance of news, photographs, advertisements, statistics etc and together with Mark Riding, Andy is working on ideas for the programme for the forthcoming season.
So if anyone has any ideas, thoughts, suggestions etc or simply wishes to help in any way (such as writing an article, sourcing an advertisement as a good few supporters already have) then please get in touch
WORKING AT THE BARTON STADIUM THIS SUNDAY
Our chairman has advised that there are still a good few little jobs that need to be finished this Sunday and if anyone is able to lend a hand it would be much appreciated. Many hands make light work and all that.
Rudheath Social 0 v 0 1874 NORTHWICH FC – Friendly game Thursday 16th July
There was a healthy attendance at Rudheath to watch 1874’s second “warm up” game and both defences came out on top as the score line would suggest. Matt Conkie had just one good save to make as he managed to react to a long range effort and pushed the ball over the bar whilst at the other end 1874 did test the home keeper but also saw a good number of efforts miss the target

Priced at just £4 or for the cost of £5 it can be posted to you – just contact Brian Edge: email@example.com or ring 07711 505414)
Well James certainly looked the part but in the end his contribution amounted to giving free fielding tips to John Coats and then when umpiring he gave Andy Lowe out LBW after being frightened by the bowlers appealing!!
