End of Season Entertainment for the Cricket Club

A newspaper article from the 8th of November 1901 reporting on entertainment for the cricket club at the end of the season.

Cricket Team

A few years ago, a cricket team of no small repute was to be found in Rosemarket, but gradually the members of the same left the village for different spheres, and all interest for cricket fell through.

This year, with the assistance of an energetic Vicar, who is ever ready to assist his parishioners in any good work, a team was formed in a good footing and bids fair to be well kept in.

The accounts proving satisfactory, the club decided to wind up the season with a "Free and Easy", which was held in the Schoolroom on Tuesday, October 29th, the Vicar presiding.

A very successful programme was gone through, Mr Edwards, of Wolverhampton, rendering great assistance to the evening's entertainment.

Appended the programme :—Address by the Vicar song, Mr Edwards song, Mr Crossley recitation, Mr Hugh Davies step dance, Mr Russan accompanied with banjo by Mr Llewellin, Coon song, Mr Rees, (accompanied with banjo by Mr Llewellin, encored) song, Mr Macken song, Mr Edwards, (encored) humorous dialogue, Messrs S. Davies, and S. J. Venables; song, Mr Lewis, [encored); recitation, W. Nicholas; song, Mr Crossley (encored) song, Mr Edwards (encored); musical duet, melodeon and bones, Messrs Reynolds and Llewellin recitation, Mr Mathias long, Mr Edwards recitation, Mr Crossley song Mr Macken (encored) humorous tale, Mr Edwards. Votes of thanks all round, and the singing of the National Anthem brought a most enjoyable evening to a close.We understand that a series of these meetings will be held during the winter months to keep the club together.
