TWENTY-TWO players from the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Over-50s squad battled out a low-scoring draw in their annual President's match at Elmstead Grasshoppers.

“While the cricket did not quite live up to expectations, the rest of the day was absolutely superb,” said match manager Geoff Newman, pictured.

“Our president, Ron Noyce, thoroughly enjoyed the occasion, but unfortunately his wife, Hazel, was not with him as usual, due to ill health.

“I would also like to thank Mick and Carol Oram of Elmstead, who made sure our day went perfectly on and off the field and also to the 40 to 50 supporters who came to watch.”
