Thursday C.C Needs Members
Last season the Rushden Thursday Cricket Club won ten matches, lost five, drew three and had four rained off. This is not up to their usual standard and they hope to do better this time.
But two of their players have left the side, N. J. Collings has moved to Burton-on-Trent, and J. M. Kendall has been called up for National Service.
They have now fourteen playing members and this allows only a very narrow margin if any of them could not turn up for a match. The club, members of which are mainly local shopkeepers, would like at least two more members.
Note: Thursday was half day closing for the shops at the time.
