Lynxes CC 70th Year - A message from Gary Marshall (President)

Dear Lynxes and Old Cranbrookians,

Cranbrook Lynxes is the club for Old Cranbrookian cricketers, existing students, staff and parents. For other O.C.s the week provides a great opportunity to re-unite with friends from school in a relaxed atmosphere with a good stock of drinks in the pavilion. We look forward to seeing you back in Cranbrook.

In July this year we will be playing Lynxes Cricket on Big Side for the 70th time and we need your support to make this a fabulous cricket week.

We need as many players as possible to sign up for a match, either an all day match or a T20 match. If you can’t play please try and come to watch some of the games and arrange to meet some of your contemporaries.

On the evening of July 15th we have arranged a 70th Anniversary Dinner in the School dining room, please make a special effort to attend as this is a very special occasion – not many old boys cricket teams make it this far!  To book places for the evening please email me at gmsquash@live.co.uk  significant others are very, very welcome.

We would like to run a raffle at the celebration dinner so if you are able to provide a prize please let me know.

This 70th Year the Cricket week will start with a match against our original rivals, Old Suttonians, on Sunday 9th July.  We hope to see many Old Cranbrookians and Old Suttonians supporting the same contest that started the Lynxes week 70 years ago.
