A Fitting Tribute
The Memorial Cricket Match held on the Playing Field on Sunday provided a very fitting tribute to the late, and much missed, Craig Whipps.
As usual with this, almost annual, event, the contest was hotly contested over 16 overs per side between the two scratch teams led by Gill Hipwell and Terry Hanner, but played in the best sporting spirit.
The result was very close with Terry’s team needing 5 runs to win off the last over and squeaking home with three balls to spare. There were several outstanding individual performances but the bowling prize should surely go to Alex Eley who achieved three dismissals in his two overs.
Thanks must go to Chris and Jean Whipps for organising the match and to everybody who contributed particularly those who provided the excellent refreshments.
