Martin Pearse

Just a reminder that the Chairman's Weekly Results Summary of the 60+ 1st Division matches and the 70+ matches
are now on a seperate page (2nd item on the menu)


England 70s, having beaten the Australia 70s in August 2013, in the first official 70+ Ashes series, have been invited to tour Australia to defend the Seevent 70+ Ashes in October/November 2015. There will be three Test Matches played in Brisbane, Sydney and Canberra. Additional games will be played in Queensland, in Sydney and possibly at The Bowral (Don Bradman’s home ground) against the Australian Capital Territory/Southern Highland Over 70s.

Following his success as Captain and Manager of the England team against the Australians in 2013 and a 70s Tour to Wales in 2014, Hugh Milner has retained the captaincy for the Australian Tests. He will also take on the role of Manager and is busy seeking sponsors and backers for these Seevent Ashes.

He said “It was a fantastic experience being the captain of a winning side against the “Old Enemy” in 2013.   The Wales matches gave an opportunity for other 70 year olds to get a taste of “international cricket”.   I never imagined in the 1950s, when I started playing adult cricket, that I would still be playing cricket when I had reached 70 years of age let alone still playing and performing in seniors’ county cricket and representing my Country as captain. It is beyond all dreams.

“We have a great all-round squad for the Seevent Test Matches in Australia and have drawn from players who are still playing over 60s cricket for counties where the 70+ game has yet to be established”.

The squad is – Hugh Milner (Sussex); Jeff Baxter (Leicestershire); Derek Birmingham (Kent) plus wife; Alan Cook (Leicestershire); Derek Ebbage (Worcestershire) plus wife; George Fox (Leicestershire) plus wife; Howard Johnson (Sussex) plus wife; Udho Maharaj (Sussex); Roger Maynard (Surrey); Hugh Milner (Sussex) plus wife; Barry Peay (Sussex); Graham Penny (Suffolk) plus wife; Bob Perrett (Suffolk); Jim Phillips (Shropshire); Kevan Pratt (Essex); John Stuck (Essex); Ron Walton (Wales); Trevor Warburton (Umpire); Kevin Bethell (Scorer)

Hugh Milner is endeavouring to raise significant sponsorship to help fund the Tour and to help the England team to meet the individual costs. He would be pleased to discuss sponsorship with any potential backer.

David Todd - Yorkshire

It is with great regret that the death of the Yorkshire Manager David Todd has neen announced ,after a short illness.
He worked incredibly hard to put Yorkshire on the map in the Over 60's and was very friendly and helpful, often organising matches within his County for teams  needing a neutral venue.
On behalf of the Seevent Committee and all the players and members, we offer our sincerest condolences to Pauline, all his Family and Friends.
