FRAMPTON COTTERELL Cricket Club are celebrating playing at the same ground in the village for 100 years this season. 

The club, also known as the Fram, have been playing at the ground - the Parks or Crossbows - for 100 years. 

As part of these celebrations, the club is planning a number of events including a week of cricket from June 29 which will include junior and adult activities, day and evening cricket. 

John Hughes from the club said: "We are trying to contact anyone who has been involved with the club throughout its history, hoping that they will want to join in, spectate or just buy a raffle ticket or two.

"One area where we are hoping for assistance is our honours board. 

"It covers the 1st, 2nd and 3rd team captains, clubman of the year plus club chair. 

"We also have a complete record of 1st team captains, and clubman, but we do have a few gaps for former captains of the second and third team covering the 50 years from 1973.

Gazette Series: Frampton Cotterell Cricket Club is celebrating its centenary this year

"If you, or anyone you know was involved with the club in the 70s, 80s or 90s, please contact us.

"Do not worry if you are unsure about the role that anyone played it would be good to make contact with former players and supporters anyway.

"We are hoping to provide some memorable and enjoyable events during our centenary year but also raise funds to develop our facilities to maintain and develop cricket at Frampton Cotterell.

"We have three adult teams that play in the Bristol and District League, midweek T20 format fixtures and we are in the process of starting up a women’s team.

"The Fram is a welcoming club offering junior red ball cricket and developmental fun based cricket experiences for younger players in All Stars and Dynamos formats."

A full programme of activities will be posted before the season starts.
