Many of you will have seen this week's Flash on the opportunity for us to bid on the 1900 Paris Olympic Silver Cricket Medal, engraved with the name of our Member, Arthur MacEvoy, also a France Champion footballer with SAC's illustrious late 1890s team.
The reserve price is 3500€, so with auction fees, we believe it can be acquired for between 4300 and 5500€.
The response to the crowdfunding effort has been amazing -- over 35 individuals and the Cricket Section have contributed anything from 2€ to 500€ each. We had a particularly generous donation from a former cricketer who remembers the Club fondly from 20 years ago! Our total now stands at 3550€, so we are at 64-82% of the estimated price.
The auction is next Tuesday.
Thanks to everyone for your messages and responses. If you would still like to contribute even 2€ to get us over the line, please drop a note to Rich Parkin at .
