The first round of the Sherwood Shield combined with ‘The Great Get Together’ took place in Titchfield Park, Mansfield on Sunday June 18th. The Sherwood Shield competition is held every year between Mercia’s clubs and uses a round robin format to establish the winning club. Players from Fernwood, Chesterfield, Nottingham, Burton Joyce, Worksop and Mansfield gathered together for a day of fun & friendly competition on one of the year’s hottest days. The event coincided with the anniversary of MP Jo Cox’s death and as the Sherwood Shield competition was originally devised to offer the hand of friendship to our neighbouring clubs, we felt that our event epitomised the sense of community spirit that Jo Cox always tried to promote. The ‘Great Get Together’ theme was gingham and all 45 players, helpers and spectators arrived clad in checks, stripes and spots together with pink gingham roses, ribbons and bows. Matches were keenly contested with Chesterfield coming out on top in round one.
