Ian Shiels Memorial Day
The Intra Club friendly on the 20th April will be part of the Ian Shiels Memorial day. In between the friendly we will be having the grand unveiling of a bench in Ian’s honour which will be followed later in the evening by the Memorial meal beginning at 7.15pm.
For those of you new to the club and not fortunate enough to ever meet Ian he lived and slept Murrayfield DAFS and is one of the main reasons that the club is in such a good state today. He was responsible for building up our now thriving Junior Section from scratch and was almost solely responsible for organising the new artifical that we play on. The inclusive nature of our club and our playing cricket in the correct way is down to him and we thrive to uphold these values both on and off the pitch. This really will be a day to celebrate all he did for the club and him as a person.
