Fancy Dress proves a winner!

Steeple Langford bought a curtain down on their season with a fancy dress T20 in order to raise money for the charity, Cricket Without Boundaries, with whom club member, Liam Burnell, is travelling out to Rwanda with later this month. The trip will focus around coaching cricket to young people in throughout the country, with everything being focused on increasing the awareness of HIV within the country.

Earlier in the day, the club hosted their colt’s presentations, before players donned their best costumes as they took to the field as an assortment of characters, ranging from ballet dancers to football referees. With the season done and dusted, players took the opportunity to let their hair down, as Andy Bennett's side took to the field! Gary Smith proved you could bat with a shovel, 150 was set as the victory target within the allotted 20 overs. However, with light closing in, an Aleem Dar styled light reading meant the players were taken off towards the bar to celebrate into the evening. Leaving Bennett stranded in the middle, and his parasol rendered useless!

The evening raised £213.60 for the Cricket Without Boundaries Trust, thanks to a magnificent BBQ, supplied by the fine team of Sandy McNeilly and Sarah Partridge, donations and wristband sales.
