Tommy’s Lemons v Eggers Eleven
This was the sixth annual cricket match arranged by The Heywood CC Patio Supporters and family/friends in memory of Tom Hardman and Trevor Jones. The event took place on August 26th at Heywood CC in front of a sizeable crowd who came out to show their love and support for both Trevor and Tom as well as giving generously to CRY. The day consisted of a BBQ, refreshments, tombola, raffle, glitter tattoos and games for the children.
Tom’s sporting passion was cricket, he started playing at Heywood CC from the age of 8 and went on to play for a number of other clubs including Clitheroe, Longton and Middleton. Tom was selected to play for the Lancashire Academy and 2nd team. Trevor was a fantastic character and also a keen supporter of cricket, spending many hours down at Heywood CC chatting and exchanging friendly banter with everyone that passed his way.
This year the score stood at 3-2 to The Lemons and as always the game was played in excellent spirit with both teams competing fiercely with fun, laughter and lots of banter. Each team consists of 15 with each player having to bowl 2 overs. A thrilling high scoring match saw the game go in favour of Eggers Eleven making the serious all square 3-3. Every year the weather approaching the event had not been favourable, but the event has always gone ahead on the day and we feel that both Trevor and Tom influence this.
Another wonderful day raising lots of money for CRY.
Margaret & Richard Hardman
