If you can score runs and play the part of a treasurer or a fixtures secretary, we will gladly put you forward for a Knighthood and treat you with the heroic respect these positions deserve; You will also receive a free pint of Henry’s IPA. Unfortunately we can’t pay you a salary as we have no money, but we do have a ground in beautiful rural Hampshire that will fill you with immeasurable pleasure every week you walk out to play. That is an offer money cannot buy.

Finally, if you can score runs and you are a very wealthy potential benefactor to our club, you can open the bat every week; In fact, even if you can’t score runs but you are a very wealthy potential benefactor to our club, you can still open the bat every week, you can do whatever you want if it results in a new clubhouse.

So please, come and join this wonderful club that has been existence since the 1870’s and you will soon find your life has changed immeasurably for the better!
