Who says the close season is quiet…

With the new season still 5 months away, and the Ashes Tour, only just underway, you’d expect it to be all quiet at Chez Staly, but apparently not.

At the AGM 2 weeks ago, it’s a pleasure to announce the outgoing vice-captain Jamie Brownhill has been dumped with the job of elected to 1st team captain, congratulations, and good luck in the new role.

His first task was to work with kit partner Icon Sports, in creating an online store for all things SSPCC, I’ll be integrating it into this site, but in the meantime, you can visit it here.

*edit* I couldn’t integrate their catalogue into our page, as they don’t utilise the secure HTTPS web standard, which is a bit odd for a shopping site, but hey-ho, so I’ve just created a link to it in the menu at the top of the page.

The fixtures for next season were also announced today, and as above, I’ve updated the fixtures pages for the upcoming season, here’s the 1sts’ games, and this page has the 2nds fixtures.  Mr Brownhill’s men open the new campaign hosting Charlesworth who finished just one place above Stalybridge in the 2017 season, and the seconds head up Mottram Road to face Dinting, who finished 4th from bottom of Division 3 this year, but with the restructuring of the divisions now join Stalybridge 2nds in the newly created Division 5.

Enjoy the Ashes, come on @EnglandCricket stuff the Aussies, have a good Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
