St. Stephen’s Day

For many people the day after Christmas Day is dominated by sport. It certainly will be this year as it falls on a Saturday anyway which is generally considered to be the main sporting day of the week. There is a full football fixture list. An extensive programme of horse racing and even cricket will be in the headlines as England begin the First Test on their winter tour in South Africa. Closer to home there will be the annual Boxing Day game between Tottington St. John’s Cricket Club and Brooksbottom which this year will be played at Crompton Meadows, off Beryl Avenue in Tottington. St. John’s will be opening their newly extended clubhouse.
