Match Preview - Hollywood Golden Oldies 5 September 2023

We are delighted to welcome back a team from Hollywood who last played at Broadhaldpenny Down in 1995.

Earlier that year, the Mayor of Bournemouth, while on a business trip to LA, paid a visit to the Dome Village as he had heard about a homeless cricket team called The LA Krickets. He brought with him a bat from Hambledon and he said “if you guys ever come to England and are good enough cricketers The Hambledon Club challenges you to a game".

In September of 1995, The LA Krickets, sponsored by Prudential Life Insurance amongst others accepted the challenge and enjoyed a lovely game of cricket where it all began.

Almost 20 years later, and a lot older, some of the players are coming out of retirement and returning to Hambledon for one last match.

It will be a T20, starting at 4.30 pm on Tuesday September 5th, with refreshments and stories afterward in the Bat and Ball with everyone welcome.
