Ex-England X1 vs CanAm United and spectators – Photo by Claire Jenkins

Cricket Week 2016 had a visiting squad from the CanAm United cricket team. The week began on the Sunday as usual, with an England Veterans XI taking on the visitors. The match was played in excellent spirits, with the home team winning by 22 runs. In a 40 over match the England XI scored 184 (Clarkie 72), while CanAm scored 162 all out after 38 overs.

It was a mostly dry week, with only some overnight rain to trouble the campers. The 15/15 produced some tight games as usual, with the trophy won by Bridget’s team. In a change to the usual Wednesday evening schedule, a combined Colwall CC & Cricket Week X1 took on a CanAm team instead of the usual match against Colwall CC. In a tight game, the Cricket Week XI triumphed by a narrow margin. The Captain’s Golf Day, also Wednesday, was won by Clarkie.

Friday’s Fancy Dress Theme – Musicals – produced some excellent efforts in creativity that were also just about conducive to playing cricket!
