Springfield Charity Cricket Day - Sunday 16th June

Hello fellow NECL teams

Now all the fixtures are out we at Springfield CC are looking for a few clubs who might fancy doing something a bit different on Sunday 16th June.

Last year we teamed up with Farleigh Hospice with the aim of raising a few ££ for Charity and one of the things we organised was a Charity cricket day. We are looking to put on a tournament again with 8 teams of eight a side. Every team will be guaranteed to play 3/4 games throughout the afternoon and alongside the cricket there will be copious amounts of food and drink (home made ciders and local beers and much more) on offer as well as stalls and stuff for the sprogs to do if you'd like to bring the whole family.

Each game lasts 7 overs per side (everyone bowling 1 over/retire on 25 etc) and it was a great laugh last year... a bit of a whackathon! And we managed to raise £1500 for Farleigh.
The cost of entry is £50 a team (all proceeds go to charity)

We will be looking to get going at 12.30pm so it you'd like to enter a team on the 16th June please let me know

Many thanks

Paul Durrant, Springfield CC
