We’re just not cricketers!

27 July 2010 No Comment

Last Friday Duncan, Alex and Gemma from Riley joined with Matt, Craig and Mark from Nash & Co, Solicitors, to make up the Rash team for the Plymouth Professionals Cricket Tournament run by Begbies Traynor and Edward Symons.

The plucky but slightly makeshift team took on teams of cricketers from LloydsTSB, Clydesdale Bank, Bond Pearce, Begbies/Edward Symons and the eventual winners, Wolferstans to play at Plymstock Cricket Club.

Neither Alex nor Gemma had ever played cricket before but threw themselves into batting, bowling and wicket keeping (Alex) with gusto. Gemma won two prizes – firstly for the only member of any team to dare to wear pink trousers and secondly for the best dive of the day – she managed a treble somersault with pike while saving her wicket from an almost certain run-out – Tom Daly eat your heart out! Alex batted throughout one of the innings and took a Bond Pearce wicket to hoots of derision from the rest of the Bond Pearce team. Duncan batted and bowled well and even brought along his own kit – no, not a bat, pads or clothing, just a box!

While our results were not what we had hoped (we lost all our matches) we did have a great time and, I like to think, brought a touch of glamour to a game of cricket – well done guys!

Thanks to Matt, Craig and Mark from Nash & Co for putting up with us and also congratulations to the Rash team for winning a signed Exeter Chiefs rugby ball in the quiz – you will see more of that later this year!
