The day stared with the boys being the Guard of Honour and Flag Bearers for the players entrance on to the pitch. Then it was the photo opportunity with Nuts the club Mascot. The boys then watched at close quarters Notts and Lancashire go about their business. At the interval it was their turn to grace the hallowed turf. The boys acquitted themselves magnificently, restricting Keyworth to only 221, with some tight bowling and a fantastic catch from Joe the particular stand out moment. It was then Calverton’s turn to bat and the crowd were in some real danger with big hitting into the crowd that Notts themselves would have been proud of. Come the close of the innings Calverton had amassed 255 so a great victory for the boys and thus resulting in being crowned Notts’ Gilbert Cup champs. After the game a few of the boys stayed around for autographs which rounded off a thoroughly enjoyable day for all. Respect and Teamwork are two of our core values so hearing comments from people seeing them for the first time about how well they worked together and how supportive of each other they were are particularly pleasing. They were a real credit to themselves and the Cricket Club. Just need Notts to do their bit and the boys could be going down to Lords to play at the home of cricket.
Very well done to you all.
