Horsington prepares for annual cricket battle

The weather looks reasonable for the bank holiday Sunday, the pitch has been mown by Hoddy, and a reasonable quorum of players has agreed to turn up for the annual cricket match of Horsington v The Tabard Pilgrims, a London pub touring side.

Judging by previous years, the game will be a hard-fought fun game of village cricket at its best.

Kick-off is at 2 pm, and the match will be followed by the usual shenigans at the half Moon, which is also holding its traditional Bank Holiday Sunday quiz.

Able bodied cricketers seeking a game should contact Andrew Tarling at the Half Moon to see if there are any vacancies to fill – on either side.
