Duchess of Rutland XI v MCC Tuesday
The 9th of June saw the annual cricket match against the MCC at the Knipton Cricket Ground.
This is the twelfth match in the series and with the MCC running out winners this year by a comfortable 71 runs it now leaves the series at 6-6!
Congratulations to MCC Captain James Overy for his man of the match performance and thereby winning the Vic Heppenstall Spirit of Cricket award.
The MCC were also presented with the Imogen Skirving Memorial Trophy for winning the game and we look forward to next year and a chance to regain the lead in the series.
Charity Golf Day – at Radcliffe on Trent Golf Club Thursday 1st September
14 teams again participated in the annual BCCT Charity golf day which was a brilliant turnout.
The course was in superb condition, the catering was excellent and judging by the scores so was the golf. Congratulations to Malcolm Barham and his team on a fantastic winning score and we look forward to you defending your trophy in 2023.
Thanks also to Radcliffe on Trent Golf Club for their hospitality and to our two guest speakers, Chris Broad the former Nottinghamshire and England cricketer and Nottingham Forest football legend Nigel Jemson, who delivered a feisty question and answer session.
Finally, a huge thank you to all our sponsors on the day, Freedom Brewery, Bunker Mentality, Slaters Menswear, Staunton Arms, Stick and Ribbon, Notts CCC and Melton Sports.
Sponsored Cycle Ride
On August bank holiday Sunday, nine coaches and supporters of the BCCT cycled 30 miles between the charity’s five Kwik cricket venues, running a kids versus parents match at each one.
The non-stop challenge from Great Dalby to Asfordby to Hose to Croxton Kerrial through to Knipton in the Vale of Belvoir raised over £3,500, a result which cheered all the tired and aching bodies at the end of a long day!
Pictured above with coach Neil Atkins are all our amazing volunteers on the day with some of the kids & parents team at Croxton Kerrial.
