Bumpty Report

One of the ‘Must read’ updates is the Bumpty Report that is now loaded. This is an irregular and irreverent view about West Penno cricket and if you wanted any insight into our Club Culture – this is it – unadulterated and amusing. Here is the link –

Photo of the Month

The new Bistro WPH at the Sports Club is sponsoring us this season for our popular ‘Photo of the Month’ Competition.

Bistro WPH has kindly offered us Dinner vouchers to the value of $50 each Month for the best photo to use in the bistro – here . Every photo goes on the website and a selection of these go into our Annual Yearbook.

To enter it is simple:

  • Just take a photo of anything to do with our Club – Kanga, Girls, Boys and Seniors
  • The photo can be of our players batting, bowling or fielding
  • Also, we are keen to get any ‘quirky’ photos that are a bit of fun.

Our Photo Gallery is a bit like a family photo album so the more variety the better.

Next steps

Just take a photo and send it to Ross Anderson (here ) with some brief commentary and it is that easy.
