The Old Bedfordians Club run in the 2018 Cricketer Cup sadly came to an end on Sunday 5th August when the OBs took on the Old Cranleighans in the semi-final at Bedford. The Old Cranleighans batted first scoring an impressive total of 225 runs, with the OBs scoring 209. Although a close match, this was, of course, a disappointing result, all should be proud of what has been achieved in this tournament in recent years. A big thank you to all who have represented the Old Bedfordians Club in any of the matches, and to Peter Rowe for scoring, but a particular thanks should go to the Captain Will Aitkenhead for his leadership and organisation. We appreciate that players are juggling a number of commitments at this time of year and travelling some relatively long distances to fixtures.
The final will take place on Sunday 12th August at the Arundel Castle Cricket Ground. It will be played between the Old Cranleighans and Old Malvernians. Good luck to both teams.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those that have supported the matches this summer and those that have made this tournament possible, in particular, the Grounds staff, Catering team, and those in Events – thank you for your hard work on some very hot days.
