With G. Gibson taking the first wicket of the day in the 2nd over, the day was off to a great start for the Ladies. Family and Friends pushed hard and after losing 9 wickets finished on 265 runs.

After a quick turn around, A. Jackson and L. Hopewell-Plant started the chase putting 20 runs on the scoreboard. The Ladies chased hard, and with some good-spirt help from the Family and Friends, they reached 267 runs in the final over of the game.

Paul Wallage XI vs Mick Franks XI

It was then time for the main charity match – Paul Wallage XI vs Mick Franks XI. As the ground filled with supporters, the afternoon was kicked off with Lauren Hevness bowling the first ball to dad Paul Wallage.

A. Dellar and M. Hoagley then took to the wicket and set the standard for the afternoon by both retiring on 50 runs. After a brilliant team effort, L. Hevness and D. Wallage brought the innings to a close at 30 overs setting the target at 239.

Then in went S. Street and S. Hartshorn for team Franks, scoring a boundary in the first over to get the runs ticking. Team Franks fought hard, with M. Franks showing how its done with another 50 scored. However, with some tight fielding by team Wallage and a great boundary catch by P. Wallage, Team Franks fell short finishing their innings on 235.

Thank you to everyone who supported the day. The event raised approximately £4,700 for St Nicholas Hospice in memory of Louise Wallage.
