We thank Martin Peters of Lanna Rehab for sponsoring shirts this year for all the CMSCA junior cricketers and for the Lanna Thais team that are playing in the Chiang Mai Senior League this season. There will be larger adult sizes of this colourful orange shirts available for sale for 1000 Baht which is another way of showing support for junior cricket.
All the juniors who will be playing on Sunday have been taking part in the Chiang Mai League either for their own teams or by helping out the three adult sides in the league so this will be a very special occasion to see the best junior Thai talent playing together to celebrate the life of Terry Skillett.
Terry's partner Jenny Morgan who raised millions of baht to support junior cricket and the Hill Tribe Fund was very moved by the idea and gave her blessing:
'Although he may not have shown it, Terry would have been chuffed by this and probably a bit teary eyed. Skilletts v Morgans, too good and I particularly love that Martin and Chris are working together, CMSCA and Lamphun have grown so much as have we along this journey. Bless everyone who has contributed to out junior development program and I can't wait to see the Thailand ladies team play in the World Cup T20 next year.'
