  • 125th Anniversary Cancelled

    It is with regret that we have decided to cancel the planned celebration of the Sydenham Cricket Club's 125th Anniversary.

    The uncertain Covid times we live in make it impossible to make definite plans and postponement to any future time has no guarantee of a lack of disruption either through travel restrictions, lockdowns, or numbers allowed in any one place.

    I wish to thank the President and committee of our club and particularly my sub-committee of Russell Dann, Bert Walker, Peter Dillon and Matt Loose who tried to put this celebration together .

    We were all looking forward to catching up with old and new friends and really celebrating the anniversary in true Sydenham style.

    Tom White
    Chairman SCC 125th Celebration Committee
