Culturefest Cricket Match 2015
What a brilliant night’s Culturefest cricket, held in bright sunlight, once again at it’s spiritual home…. New Hutte Neighbourhood Centre…..were the Patron’s X1 were once more up against the Mayor’s X1.
This year the Mayor’s X1, who batted first, was entirely made up of students and staff from Halewood Academy, which very much pleased the Patron, who, in thanking Phil Rylands who captained and coached the Mayor’s X1, congratulated him in introducing some potentially fine young cricketers to the game. Special mention must be made of one young Academy student, Jack Cross, who was joint highest scorer amongst both teams with 19 runs.
The Patron’s X1, a experienced and strong side, were skilfully captained by Gerry Allen to used both his batsmen and bowlers to such good effect and who won the game and so, the Patron retained his pot!
Our pictures show the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Clare Rose and the Culturefest Patron Richard McCullagh plus a shot taken during the match and the two teams at the end of the game with the Deputy Mayor and Patron.
