Shoreham CC’s Daddy Hundredth – 1868-2018 – and Reunion Weekend

So, what is a Daddy Hundred?  For those unfamiliar with the term, it’s a phrase used to describe not just scoring a century, but going on to get a big individual score of over 150.

But… this year there’s an even bigger Daddy Hundred, as we celebrate the Club’s 150th anniversary 1868-2018.

The Chairman has written a history of the Club priced at £10 (with p&p £1.50 extra), with all proceeds donated to Shoreham CC. Please support this fund raising initiative and learn something about the Club from its early days, through both world wars, and into the modern era,  Plenty of photos, anecdotes and gently humour – there is something for everyone: club members, families of former and current Shoreham cricketers, as well as local historians.

Calling all former players and friends of the Club!

We will be marking this summer’s 150th milestone with a celebratory weekend of cricket in August, and wish to reach out to as many former players and their families as possible.

This event will be held on the weekend of 17-18-19 August as a get-together at the ground with marquee and refreshments:
Friday 17 August: Peter Walker Memorial Match v Old Oaks 6pm Start
Saturday 18 August: 1st team league match between Shoreham and Eynsford
Sunday 19 August: Annual Charity Match between the Club and a Vice-Presidents’ XI, with proceeds to be jointly shared by the Club and Cancer Research.

The games will be given a great backdrop by virtue of the Biggin Hill Air Display, where our ground enjoys a splendid view of the aerial proceedings taking place over this weekend.  This also links in interestingly to the famous “Raid Stopped Play” match in August 1940 between Farningham and Shoreham at Shoreham’s ground.

The nearest opponents to Farningham we could get were Eynsford, as they are in the same division of our league.  And in 1940 there was an Eynsford ringer – Bruce Couchman – who top-scored for the Farningham side.
