CRICKET: Motley Crew to mark silver anniversary

Have your say

BOURNE’S Motley Crew Cricket Club have issued an invitation to all former players to rejoin them for a 25th anniversary bash next month.

The Crew played their first ever game at Baston in August 1987 and to mark the silver anniversary, the club have hired Burghley Park Cricket Club’s facilities for an inter-Motley match on Saturday, September 15. There will be a barbecue and bar throughout the afternoon.

Ex-Motleys interested in attending or playing should call Sean Patchett on 07941 438228.

* ON Sunday the Motleys played Barley and batted first against a strong bowling attack making 141 all out with Sean Patchett hitting 70 and Tom Patchett 24.

The home side then knocked off the runs despite Will Patchett taking 2 for 21 and Ian Gibson 2 for 14.
