Memories of Coverack: Coverack Headland Cricket Club

Recently, we posted some photos of the Coverack Sea Wall being built in 1990 and asked if anyone had any memories or photos of Coverack they would like to share. Philip Kerr in Manchester kindly got in touch with us with these photos and memories of the Headland Hotel Cricket Club.


As you will see I have attached two photos of a car badge. I am 72 years of age and I hold Coverack very dearly in my heart. Many many years ago when I was a young boy of about twelve my parents used to take me on holiday to Coverack and we stayed in the Headland Hotel as was ( since been converted as you will know ).

The proprietors of the hotel at the time were Mr & Mrs George Pickles. George was very keen on cricket and every year used to form a team from his guests to play a team from the village ( the name Roskilly was a regular for the village ). The matches were brilliant times which used to conclude with drinks for all back at the hotel.

The badge I have sent was made to celebrate these games and I have treasured it all the time I have owned it. Every time I see it, it evokes memories of those times. I will never forget Coverack. It is timeless.

Thank you to Philip Kerr for these memories and photos.
