Mr George Seymour of Thrumpton Hall was a great supporter, benefactor and President of the club from 1949. He was also a member of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club and the MCC, but the village club enjoyed much of his time amidst a wide variety of public duties.
The club lost its former ground on Church Lane at the end of the 1967 season. Mr Seymour immediately offered the use of his park and since 1968 the ground has matured into one of the most picturesque in the County.The ground has featured several times on national television and was a great source of pride to him.
Mr Seymour and his family were regular supporters at home matches and the annual all day fixture against his Presidents XI became an institution albeit temporarily suspended in 1994 in his memory.
Members of the club were delighted when his widow the Rt Hon Rosemary Seymour accepted their invitation to continue as President.
