Golden Hill CC Youth Coach set to become oldest person with Cystic Fibrosis to tackle the UK's greatest cycle challenge
Tues. 29th June 2021
This July, one of Golden Hill CC’s youth coaches, Stuart Priscott, will become the oldest person living with Cystic Fibrosis to complete the John O’ Groats to Lands End (JOGLE) bicycle challenge.
Setting off 11 days after turning 50, he and two friends – Matt Theedom and Scott Chappell – will cycle the gruelling 874 miles to Lands End in a bid to raise £50,000 on behalf of two charities: The Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Chance to Shine, an organisation that promotes cricket in schools and communities.
The three cyclists, who all work within cricket in the south west of England, have come together to honour the memory of Stuart’s sister, Jo, another CF sufferer, who died in late 2018 aged 50.

We are very sad to announce that former player John Tanner died earlier this month at the age of 88.
John was a very active member of the club in the 60s, 70s & 80s both on & off the field. At various times he captained the 2nds, acted as social secretary & ran one of the first if not the first ever youth team.
His many contributions were recognised in 1975 when was presented with the clubs highest award, the Michael Harris Memorial trophy.
Both John & his wife Jacky, who survives him & who also provided considerable help & support to the club over many years, will be remembered with great fondness & affection by all those that knew them.
Our condolences go out to Jacky & son Mark, a member of that youth team & now an accomplished musician!
