The Fram enjoy a triple celebration

THE members of Frampton Cotterell Cricket Club greeted September with sore heads after celebrating one of the most successful seasons in their history. Not only were the 1st and 2 XI's crowned champions of their division, but the 2nd and 3rd teams also won promotion in their respective leagues. It’s a feat which none of the current members can recall ever happening before.

THE members of Frampton Cotterell Cricket Club greeted September with sore heads after celebrating one of the most successful seasons in their history.

Not only were the 1st and 2 XI's crowned champions of their division, but the 2nd and 3rd teams also won promotion in their respective leagues.

It’s a feat which none of the current members can recall ever happening before.

Club captain Jimmy Dickinson: “This has been a fantastic year for the club. We’ve gone through a few ‘rebuilding’ seasons following the retirements of key players but it’s been great to see the team grow in confidence as the season’s gone on. Rather than relying on the same one or two guys, lots of players have made an impact at important times.” 

The timing of the success is important: The Bristol & District league will be restructured for the 2014 and to minimise the impact on the club it was important for the teams to finish as highly placed as possible. 

The players now look forward to their tour to Devon.
