Final of Sky "Club Life" Series

Monday 3rd September 2007

At Marston CC , Oxford

Sefton Park Cricket Club have taken part in the Sky Television "Club Life" series which featured three cricket clubs, Crickhowell from Mid-Wales, the ladies of Reading Ridgeway and Sefton.

The final programme featured a three way twenty/20 competition at Marston CC which is part of Oxford University, five minutes walk from "The Parks"

Sefton Park travelled down on the Sunday and met up with the Sky people in the centre of Oxford at about 10:00 pm. The Welsh lads had been drinking from 1:00pm

The first game, between Crickhowell and Reading, was supposed to start at 10:00 am on Monday morning. The girls were there (left), warming up, and the Welsh lads eventually arrived at 10:15 am
England international Isa Guha opened the bowling for Reading
The Lads from "Crick" were soon in trouble and were dismissed for 69. In reply the girls scored 70 for 3 in 18.1 overs, a surprise victory for Reading
Dave was there, as ever, scoring with Ann from Reading. Crickhowell did not bother bringing a scorer!
While the first game was taking place, Ben Moore, John Jackson and Dave Kirby were taken to do some punting in a nearby river. Inevitably, they all ended up in the water. They are seen returning.
