we just love cricket
The Committee and the members of the Fylde Coast Cricket Society welcome you and invite you to view their website full of information about the society.
Who are we?
The Fylde Coast Cricket Society are supporters of cricket who meet once a month from November to March for an evening of cricket conversation and a dinner at the Queens Hotel in Blackpool. At each dinner a guest speaker is invited to give the society members a talk and to take a short question and answer session.
The first dinner of the new season will be held in November. As ever we are looking for new members to keep the Society in existence. Please spread the word about the Society and encourage cricket lovers to come and join us for the next season in November.
