Dixon crowned pool king of Lashings!

KERRY Dixon was the star of his very own Pool Night at Lashings on Monday. The Chelsea and England legend took on all-comers at the Sports Bar's newly-installed pool table and mingled with fans until the small hours. Kerry won more than he lost and entertained a huge number of fans with some of his many war stories from his days as a professional footballer - sadly none of which can be repeated here!

Smith back at the Oval for All-Stars

Lashings' new manager David Smith, pictured below, was back at the Kia Oval on Sunday, giving a presentation to a number of clubs from Surrey who are interested in hosting the Lashings All-Stars in the future. Smith, a powerful batsman who spent 11 years with Surrey and went on to play for England, was speaking at a spring cricket conference held in association with Surrey CCC at the famous test venue, where Lashings annual gala dinner will be held on Friday October 16 . It will be the first time the Oval will have hosted the event.

CHRIS Gayle could be the latest cricketing superstar to join up with Lashings after he met up with All-Stars chairman David Folb in Jamaica last week. The West Indies mega star was at Jakes Hotel, Treasure Beach, where he met with Folb and Jakes' owner Jason Henzell to discuss a possible appearance for the All-Stars in 2015. Lashings are hoping to lure Gayle to the UK for the BREDS foundation ball in Mote Park, Maidstone on August 29 and for the match with the House of Commons and Lords Select XI the day after at the same venue.
