We did it!!!
It was third time lucky last Wednesday 26th July 2012 when Buckhorn beat Shaftesbury in the Ranston Cup final. Congratulations for an excellent team effort – full details to follow in due course.
Buckhorn Weston CC has had yet more success in gaining grants to enable it to further improve the Club’s playing facilities and its coaching capabilities.
Sport England have given the Club a grant of £8,225 for the purchase of a set of three mobile covers, to protect the playing area when conditions are damp, and a bowling machine. We hope to have the bowling machine available before the end of the current winter nets programme. The covers will be delivered and assembled in April ready for the start of the outdoor playing season.
The Community Foundation for Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole, using funding provided by Comic Relief, have given the Club a grant of nearly £2,000 to pay for three of the Club’s senior players to attend Level 1 and Level 2 coaching courses.
The Club gratefully acknowledges the financial help provided by both these bodies, and their support for our endeavours to provide top class playing facilities for our Club members and for visiting teams.
