Vixen 101 Faces 2014 Cricket Challenge at Londesborough Park

The cricket challenge for the Mick Neale Memorial Trophy will take place between a Vixen 101 team and a Londesborough Park XI side this Sunday 7th September 2014, writes organiser Phil High.

In the previous five years, the radio station has never come close to defeating the cricket team. Indeed, one year, Vixen 101 batted twice and still didn’t get anywhere near the total posted by Londesborough Park. However, the whole point of the fixture is to raise funds to support the radio station and this is achieved by the players paying a match fee, is a raffle drawn on the day and refreshments provided in the pavilion. I have been busy generating raffle prizes and we have some great ones, including meals for a year from McDonalds at Shiptonthorpe.

I am extremely grateful to Londesborough Park for allowing us to use their superb facilities free of charge to ensure we maximise the fundraising.efforts with well over £1000 raised to date. The action begins at 2pm and is a 30-overs-a-side game.
