We are extremely grateful and privileged that the Dragons have agreed to play us in what’s become a great day for the club and the town

“We are extremely grateful and privileged that the Dragons have agreed to play us in what’s become a great day for the club and the town,” said Lewis.
“Regretfully last years event was rained off so we’ve had to bide our time to avenge 2012’s last ball defeat, we know that they have strong cricketers amongst their squad so it won’t be easy.
“Fingers crossed for some decent weather and a big crowd to help raise much needed money for our chosen charities, both of whom have given immeasurable personal support to several families at our club.”
