Lat night it was brilliant to play cricket over at Needingworth to raise awareness and some money for the “Beating Bowl Cancer”.
Paul Cox, a past Needingworth wicket keeper developed the disease and now fortunately has been scanned as clear. His efforts along with club captain Ian Armstrong raised over £2000.
Thanks to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire for giving it a plug on my behalf.
I last played for Needingworth in 1997. In the club house I spotted my name on some winners shields which took me down memory lane. The Needingworth of today play at a much higher standard than I remember so it was with some reputational trepidation that I went into bat. A four off the first ball steadied the nerves and I went on to make a reasonable score not out.
Playing in a team of youngsters, except for Ian of course, was a pleasant change. I managed to take a catch at point. I then took a wicket bowling although I felt sorry for the chap I got out given how my bowling was up to its usual rubbish standard.
Despite it getting chilly later on it was fun and for a good cause.
Well done to everyone.
