Parley Cricket Club beat the rain to take on England Cricket Stars

On 6th May Parley Cricket Club welcomed a team of ex England Internationals for a memorable fixture that proved the Parley 1st XI can compete against heroes from England’s cricketing past.

Rain leading up to the event could have resulted in the match being called off, but a change in weather coupled with a valiant effort from volunteers of Parley Cricket Club meant play could start on time.

England battled first in very difficult conditions totalling 108 for 3, Martin Bicknell the top scorer with 37. The pick of the Parley bowlers was Laura Thomas taking 2 wickets for 6 runs. In response, Parley reached 98 for 9, Sam Thompson making 32 and Min Patel taking 3 for 7.

The memorable event finished in the clubhouse with all the players, supporters and sponsors exchanging stories over a few well-deserved drinks.

Ward Goodman are proud sponsors of Parley Cricket Club.
