Well 2020 has definitely been different. The year started well with winter nets and training and everyone was looking forward to a summer of cricket, including for the first time girl and women’s teams.  March arrived and everything was turned upside down and new words became common parlance – lockdown, COVID, R rate, shielding…… For a while it looked as though we would not see any amateur cricket at all in 2020. Despite that we were really pleased to see the number of members renewing membership and as the Summer progressed new members joining.

With lots of hard work by the League we were delighted to see a rejigged competition for 2020 deservedly won by Church CC, alongside a number of T20 competitions organised by small groups of clubs. Great to see clubs working together to organise the competitions with one raising much needed funds for the NHS Charities. 

Throughout the year though we have had various levels of restrictions placed on us that have led to reduced bar takings and a signifiant loss of revenue as we have not been able to host functions at the club. We also had to cancel Rammy’s biggest fire work display for 2020.

The Club has therefore decided to run a Christmas Raffle to raise much needed funds to help keep the club running. All proceeds will go to the Club and we are very grateful to all those who have donated the brilliant prizes.  

  • Our main sponsor Formulated Polymers for the IPad
  • Park Farm who have donated a large hamper
  • Sleep Hut for the PJ sets
  • £250 of Amazon vouchers from Porter Lancastrian Ltd
  • A Slattery’s hamper from the Junior Sponsors Grace Overseas
  • The Ladies Section for donating the Selfridges vouchers
  • A cheese hamper from the Mousetrap
  • The Vineyard for the case of wine
  • C&G Wholesale for donating the meat hamper

All great prizes just in time for Christmas.  Follow the link below to enter https://raffall.com/142091/enter-raffle-to-win-ramsbottom-cc-xmas-raffle-hosted-by-ramsbottom-cricket
