PRESIDENT OF REPTON PILGRIMS CRICKET CLUB - JAMES ROSS

January 6th, 2017

Being elected President of Repton Pilgrims Cricket Club is a huge honour and something I cherish greatly particularly when I look at my distinguished predecessors.  My first experience of involvement with The Pilgrims started as a fourteen year old cricket nut nearly fifty years ago.  The Hall used to provide four boys to score and operate the "tally" at home Cricketer Cup matches.  It provided some memorable moments not least meeting Colin Cowdrey when he was playing for the Old Tonbridgians.

 

On leaving Repton I became a Pilgrim and went on twenty five consecutive South Coast tours.  I also played in The Week and toured with The Pilgrims to Australia and Kenya.  I was in the 1983 squad which won the Cricketer Cup, the reward being a terrific day at Epernay in France sampling Moët and Chandon's finest produce.  I also played in a disappointing defeat in the 1985 final.

 

All of these experiences have been great fun and have led to lasting friendships to this day.  I sincerely hope that many Reptonian cricketers take the opportunity to be involved with a wonderful club.  I also wish very much that we continue to flourish as a club representing one of the great cricketing schools on a wonderful ground.

 

James Ross.  President Repton Pilgrims CC
