Cricket Match 4th June 2012
The friendly cricket match against Wilnecote Cricket Club, Wilnecote, Tamworth was a success.We were very fortunate with the weather and the facilities and hospitality were excellent. The game was played in the true traditions of the sport with both sides displaying a competitive edge and good sportsmanship.
The ex-servicemen 10 (we were 1 man short) with an average age of over 60 were defeated by a much younger team. Still, on the day the youngsters did not have it all their own way as, the biggest 6 of the day was hit by a batsman who is over 70 years old.
We had excellent support from the crowd, the BBQ was good. Many thanks to Mr Ray Seagrave and wife for their tremendous support and contribution the BBQ, members of BCVA (the association), wives,children, girlfriends, boyfriends and all at wilnecote cricket club who all assisted in making it a day to remember.
