Beeston & District Round Table v Long Eaton Round Table – 3rd Annual Cricket Match

Friday 9th July 2010

On a pleasant Friday evening in July the two teams from Beeston & Long Eaton met at the Attenborough Cricket Club to compete in the 3rd Annual Cricket Match between the two tables.

Long Eaton won the toss and elected to bat first, a wise decision with the fading light playing a major roll in last years outcome. With a smattering of mediocrity cricket on both sides they set a target of 35 to win off 12.2 over’s.

Beeston went in to bat with Dave Liddington taking some key wickets early on. Beeston ran out final winners with 6 wickets to spare.

With the help of some excellent donated and purchased raffle prizes and help from the Long Eaton Ladies Circle we raised in excess of £500.00. The award ceremony lacked the actual cricket challenge trophy, as no one could find it, but in a reverse to the normal Robert Westerman, the losing captain, accepted the return of Long Eaton’s lectern swagged by Beeston at their charter night (1 point to Beeston).

The TeamsMany thanks to Bosco ‘hygenix’ Townsend for catering and donating to the event. The Attenborough Cricket Club for hosting us. Our Area Chairman Steve Grew for attending. Long Eaton Round Table for taking up the challenge and anyone else I may of missed (sorry).
