Do you ever wish you hadn’t tried to organise a memorial cricket match slap bang in the middle of the Cricket World Cup? This is what comes of non-aficionados of the game looking after the admin; we discover many of you cricket tragics - most significantly Andrew and Richard Sederman themselves - are already booked up!
We want to make sure as many of you as possible can celebrate Derek’s life through the medium of his favourite sport, cricket, so we’ve decided to postpone the match until next summer. We’ll liaise with the school to provide a date as soon as we can.
Thanks to all of you who said you wanted to play in the teams. Shelley Grimshaw (nee Johnson) will be in touch with you. You’re already on the list for next year!
And, if you’re desperate to play or watch cricket at Abbotsholme, remember the OA v 1st XI match is still being played on 30 June. Just email Sam Ritchie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
