A year ago

A year ago we celebrated the 250 year anniversary since the original first-class cricket match took place at Broadhalfpenny Down.

Mark Nicholas and his Hampshire All-Star XI overcame Charlotte Edwards' All England XI featuring cricket writers, actors, International cricketers and representatives from MCC, Barmy Army, and England Disability Cricket.

Mike Beardall was featured live on Test Match Special, BBC and ITV filmed away, Jack Russell painted away, the ice cream van visited, as did the Unity Cricket bat on its tour of the UK.

A day for the ages, at the cradle of cricket.
