This is The stuff of legends

This season will mark the 24th year of the Hadspen Chieftains Cricket Club which started out as the Sidmouth XI Cricket Club. This is the story so far and our evolution to the present success that is Hadspen Cricket Club. 

The Sidmouth XI Cricket Club was established 1987/88 joining the TCL, with many of the players having played together the previous season with the California Hotel Cricket Club also in the TCL. A few others including Syd Holland had played B Grade with the previous Sidmouth Cricket Club that had folded the previous season, whom had played in the now defunct Tamar League. Our first year saw us join the TCL in B Grade in the first year the TCL expanded to dvision 1 & 2.

The new team was a success from the start. In our first year under the captaincy of Syd Holland we finished runners up, going down to Trevallyn in the Grand Final.

Our second season of 1988/89, again captained by Syd Holland was our first triumph, going through the season undefeated in competition games and backed if up in the finals series to and scrape in and win our first premiership in tight game Garry (Knuckle) Neville, dropped by the keeper earlier, tucked the winning runs in front of square leg to claim victory a to remember.

The season of 1990/91 saw us field two teams with Stephen (Rex) Smith the A Grade captain and Steven (lombardy) Neville in charge of the new recruit B grade team. While the A Grade finished last the B Grade team did very well making the finals but narrowly losing in the Semi Finals, but more importantly provided the club with an influx of youth capable of taking the club to new levels for years to come.

The 1990/91 season saw us pushing to become a powerhouse in the TCL by our A Grade making the Grand Final but going down gallantly against Normanstone at Trevallyn.

1991/92 saw us reap our first A grade premiership with a one wicket win with one ball to spare in a truly amazing match against Legana at Bethune Park.

In 1992/93 we made our third consecutive A Grade grand Final but lost to Old Launcestonians at Trevallyn in a match we should have won.

The following season of1993/94 we made an unprecedented fourth consecutive A Grade Grand Final appearance and absolutely flogged Trevallyn by 8 wickets at Bethune Park. The Charltons Cup knockout competition commenced in 1993/94 it involved teams from the TCL & the NECA we were its innaugural champions, defeating Legana at Legana and claim the double glory for the year. This was Sidmouth XI at its most dominant, with two premierships in one year!

1994/95 came we won the Charltons Cup Premiership back to back beating Legana at Bethune Park and it remained ours forever two seasons undefeated we knocked everyone out of the competition for good. Bitter dissapointment befell us in the regular season missing the finals by by one game thus losing the chance to defend our title.

In 1995/96 Leigh (psych) Gittus captained the A Grade to second position on the ladder but was beaten by Trevallyn at Bethune Park in the Semi Final.

Our 6th Finals appearance in seven years, was achieved in 1996/97 under the captaincy of Grant Davern but suffered the same fate as the previous year losing to the eventual premiers Trevallyn at Beauty Point in the Semi Finals. Rod Neville lead the B Grade out of the wilderness for our first finals campain in seven years, dropped catches saw them lose to the eventual premiers Riverview in the Semi Finals.

The Season of 1998/1999 year under dual Captaincy of Brett Martin and Troy Geoghegan we had a quiet year in A Grade only one win and two tied matches for the year. B Grade under Johnny Bailey finished third and our newly formed C Grade went down in the Grand Final to Old Launcestonians under Steve (Lombardy) Neville. The club saw the end of our Kingsmeadows second ground experiment and was back at Sidmouth.

with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one

Thanks for your submission. I would love to remark that the very first thing you
will need to do is check if you really need fixing credit.
To do that you simply must get your hands on a copy of your credit score.
That should not be difficult, because government necessitates that you are allowed to acquire one totally free copy of your own credit report annually.
You just have to request that from the right men and women. You can either read the
website owned by the Federal Trade Commission as well as contact
one of the major credit agencies immediately.

The government accepts the need for contract labour of fixed term duration in support of labour market flexibility but, at the same time, seeks to
ensure that workers engaged on a short-term contract basis are protected, particularly concerning social security and minimum wages,
and that contract employment is not used to deny workers the
benefit of permanent status. Policy once defined should implement.

Thanks for the posting. My partner and i have continually
observed that almost all people are eager to lose weight since they
wish to look slim plus attractive. Nonetheless, they do
not continually realize that there are other benefits to
losing weight in addition. Doctors insist that overweight people have problems with a variety of
ailments that can be directly attributed to their own excess weight.
Thankfully that people who're overweight plus suffering from several
diseases can help to eliminate the severity of their own illnesses by way
of losing weight. It is possible to see a constant but identifiable improvement in health if even a
moderate amount of fat loss is realized.
