A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND A WORD FROM OUR PRESIDENT!

Stay safe and look after all those near to you.

In these difficult and bewildering times we simply wish everyone a very Happy Christmas.

 

A Message from our President. (The first of the Officers reports to be published).

Last year when I was asked to accept nomination as your President, I was delighted to do so, on the proviso that I didn't take part in the day-to-day management. I did so because I felt I was too ancient and I saw my role more as an ambassador for cricket and the Competition in particular.

Then along came COVID-19and instead of meeting people, I was desperately trying to avoid them. Not an easy thing for any normal person to do. I also saw the amount of hard work, by the management group, to carry on and eventually rescue part of our season. I have nothing but admiration for the folk who work so tirelessly for this great league and on your behalf I thank them from the bottom of my heart.

One of the other things I have realised is that I am the product of a different era. I enjoyed thirty playing years, in an uncomplicated competition, where the only real rules were the laws of cricket and every club was responsible for the behaviour of its players. Happy days.

Let's hope season 2021 is a year of near normality when we can all enjoy what we have sadly missed and I can get around to see a lot of friends both old and new.

As Sir Henry Newbolt wrote in his famous poem Vitae Lampada, "Play up, play up and play the game!"

Cheers and best wishes to all.

Charlie O’Mahony

President

Liverpool and District Cricket Competition
