CRICKET – BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT

Enthusiastic players were tempted away from their desks and building sites to take on their competitors in a knockout cricket challenge at Lincoln’s well-known Lindum Ground.

Staff from Banks Long & Co and the Lindum Group, their contacts and friends, met for the annual Cricket Day ready to demonstrate their sporting prowess, network and enjoy a tasty barbecue and a few pints of beer.

Players of all abilities were blessed with fantastic weather, allowing for a full day’s good-humoured play at what is one of the county’s most popular corporate events.

Butcher’s Blinding Backspins (captained by James Butcher) faced Freddie’s Fierce Forehands  (captained by Freddie Chambers) in the tense final, when the “Backspins” claimed victory, winning by ther significant margin of 63 runs.”
