2022 saw Lashings return to the doing what they do best! Entertaining and celebrating sport. A busy season was enjoyed across the country, with the majority of games going to the last over and Lashings being tested like never before. Often, it has to be said, against squads whose average age is closer to our squads grandchildren than children…..
As a club we have long believed that youngsters truly are the lifeblood of the game, our free coaching sessions were a spectacle I will long count amongst my highlights. Seeing as many as 100 youngsters running around a field and learning to play our wonderful game is something that brings us all the greatest joy.
Off the field a string of headline events punctuated the year from shows with Frank Bruno, Phil Tuffnell, Mike Tindall and of course Lord Sir Ian Botham, were all events to remember. 2023 gets off to a roaring start Barry Hearn in February and a host of star names in the pipeline. Watch this space!!!!!
On reflection, as an events company, it is fair to say that 2022 was a challenging year, but ultimately we have finished the year having satisfied every fixture and event that was cancelled or postponed because of the virus….
I am sure that 2023 will present us with challenges of its own. But there are now some undeniable truths. In the last four years, since we took over the brand we have helped clubs and charities raise close to £400,000. We can make a massive difference to those who want to help themselves.
Our many achievements this year have been astounding. But we couldn’t have done it without our dedicated and hard working teams both on and off the field, our fabulous sponsors, without whom we would lost! and finally to the some 10.000 people who have attended one (or more!) of our events this year. You make our goals achievable at every level. Thank you.
I hope that you all winter well, soon enough the days will start getting longer, the rat a tat of lawn mowers and the smell of freshly cut grass will fill the air. But until then I wish you festive greeting a very happy New Year.
