160th Anniversary Match: Patron’s XI vs Bluemantle’s – 9th June 2022 – The Nevill Ground.

An esteemed crowd of current and past cricketers assembled at The Nevill Ground on 9th June to celebrate the 160th Anniversary of The Bluemantle’s. The Patron’s XI was accumulated from a notable band of lawyers, among others, with a high pedigree of cricketing talent. However, their 170 for 8 wasn’t enough to hold back the batting power of the Bluemantle’s, whose victory came with just 2 wickets down.

More on the scores to follow. In the meantime, enjoy the photos and the video of our President, Nigel Wheeler, explaining the history of the Club.
