After being relegated for two years running in 2005 and 2006, the Saturday team were promoted as winners of Regional Division 2 - North East in 2007. We will be playing in Division 1 - North in 2008 in a changed league structure that includes a County Div 4 North and South for the first time. The Sunday side also had a great season, including an invitational game to Southend on Sea to play Mike Pink's side as a celebration of his forthcoming marriage. Some fantastic individual performances from Guy Charlton provided the 'wow' factor whilst consitent performances by the whole team ensured that results went Chawton's way more often than not and everyone enjoyed their cricket.
The season over, everyone was looking forward to the Dinner Dance and the AGM in November until one Sunday in October when Simon Channon lost his life in a tragic accident and everything changed in an instant. Suddenly cricket was unimportant and our thoughts were all with Zoe, Jacob and Megan. Acting on Zoe's wishes the Dinner went ahead and Simon's contribution to Chawton cricket was celebrated by his family, friends and team mates.
