SSSC SUMMER SOCIAL

Friday, 11th July  2014

Sale Sharks Supporters   Altrincham FC Supporters

T20 Cricket exhibition match

at 

Ashley Cricket Club 

 

The balmy summer weather and pre-match hype in the Manchester Evening News and on BBC Radio Manchester ensured a good crowd turned up to watch a classic football v rugby cross code challenge as the Sale Sharks Supporters Club  and Sale Sharks Community Coaches took on an Altrincham FC Supporters and staff side at the neutral sport of T20 cricket; a match sponsored by Plas Coch to open the Ashley Beer and Food Festival.

 

Sale made early inroads into the Alty batting with Sharks Community Coach Darren Lamon taking a wicket in the 1st over and a good spell of spin bowling from ex-Sale and England international Hendre Faurie. However as time went on Alty got into their stride and were able to post a highly competitive score of 144 from their 20 overs.


SSSC member Ben Smith and Darren Lamon strode to the crease in confident manner  but both returned to the stands in the first over of Sale's run chase. Runs were coming but unfortunately wickets were tumbling as Sale collapsed to 66-8 after 10 overs. Just when all seemed lost, SSSC member Joe Parsonage and Community Coach Andy Broadhurst were able to put on a 20 run partnership which edged us to within 60 runs of our target before Joe was clean bowled. Cometh the hour, cometh the man and for Sale that man was number 11 batsman Paul Garnett who came out and literally smashed the Alty attack all over the field. Boundary after boundary came off Paul's bat to the point that we got to the last over needing just 16 runs to win. Unfortunately despite chants of SAAYYLLLL echoing around the ground Paul couldn't quite pull off the Great Escape as he was run out on the 2nd ball of the over leaving  us tantalizingly only 14 short of our target.

 

Of course its much easier to accept defeat on a hot summer's night when a beer festival is in full flow and both sides joined spectators in sampling the delightful ales on offer well into the evening.

THE GLOUCESTER FUN-BUS
Saturday, 13 September 2014
KO 3:00pm
 

Once again, for the new season SSSC are offering the best value for money transport to and from all away fixtures.

 

If you are a Sale Sharks supporter who has already travelled on the Fun-Bus there is no need to remind you what a fun day out it is supporting your favourite team! With a virtual 'door to door' service on a comfortable, reliable coach in brilliant company it can be argued that it’s more convenient and less hassle than travelling to a home match.

 

If you've not travelled on the Fun-Bus before you can either 'party' at the rear of the coach or relax at the front. As soon as you board the coach you can enjoy first class 'cabin service' with FREE Bucks Fizz served with savouries, cakes and croissants! We invariably stop for a hearty, prearranged, value for money lunch before reaching the ground unless our destination is renowned for its culinary excellence!

 

You will make new friends and will usually arrive home in time to take the dog for a walk or put the cat out!  :)

We silenced 'The Shed' last season... Let's do the same again this year!
