They may be superstars but they never act like them, the ethos is never refuse an autograph, always pose for selfies. “And we’ll play cricket at places the county circuit has ignored and neglected. International cricket is concentrated on a handful of venues and there are huge swathes of the country that are over an hour’s drive from even a county venue. We’re very popular in are as like the West of England and Lincolnshire. “2014 went phenomenally well, given that we didn’t lose a single match, although Eastbourne and Brentwood both pushed us very close. We were hoping to go unbeaten again but lost to Eastbourne early on. The players like the close games, but the chairman would prefer it if we had fewer alarms! “One of the biggest challnges we face now is that signing ‘galacticos’ isn’t as straightforward as it used to be because of the staggering sums of money cricketers can now make, well into their late thirties and early forties, playing T20 cricket. Signing Grant Elliott will is a nice addition for us. It’s not as if we had a week batting order but let’s say he will add a bit of youthful vigour...” “Our ambition is to spreading the gospel. Really we’d like to keep doing what we’re doing, although we’d also like to play a few more football games as well. A visit from Lashings can be the biggest event in a club’s history. Cricket fans get the chance to meet their heroes, talk with them and even drink with them. There are men of a certain age who idolised players like Gordon Greenidge and we give them the chance to meet their idols.” “2014 went phenomenally well, given that we didn’t lose a single match, although Eastbourne and Brentwood both pushed us very close. “ 12 Issue 41 BWC Group comprises of BWC Aluminium Ltd, stockists of specialist aluminium extrusions and BWC Plastics, manufacturers of plastic extrusions with over 20 years’ experience in both of these markets.
