QMClub Cricket Team is doing really well this year, and enjoying meeting as a social group for alumni of Queen Mary’s, too.   Alex Dallaway runs it and has managed to increase the fixture list again this year including a tour match against Dolgellau CC at the end of this month. Although he has about 50 old boys on the mailing list he only has about 11 to 14 regulars turn up to play in the matches.  Why don’t some more of you give it a go?!  All you need to do is contact Alex (alex.dallaway@wlv.ac.uk or 07849 771844) please. He would really appreciate it and you would enjoy being part of a successful team and a thriving social group.  Come on – give it a go or at least come and watch!  Fixture list under Events/Sport/Cricket
