Cider, beer and cricket for the over 45s

Fancy a thirst-quenching pint of cider or traditional ale? Well, you’ll have to earn it first!

Hobsons Brewery and Oldfields Orchard Cider are sponsoring the 2016 over 45s club cricket competition, and Bredon are entering a team.

The idea is to increase the opportunities for senior players who may no longer be playing, or are thinking about retiring.

Worcestershire Cricket and Seniors Association, who have organised the competition, are asking captains to agree on formats on the day, and for every club to promote enjoyment and involvement, rather than competition. Download the rules in full here.

Sounds like a formula for a good day out… with plenty of refreshment at the end of it!

Ten teams are taking part. Bredon’s first game is against Pershore away (date to be agreed), and the cup and plate finals will be played at Bromsgrove on Sunday, September 4.
