The sun shone for Brackley Cricket Club last weekend as they took on one of the country’s top 18 sides.
On Sunday the Brackley side were host to the Northants County Cricket Club first XI in aid of the Northants captain’s benefit year.
The Northants side went easy on the locals to produce an exciting 10 run win for the large crowd of spectators.
Brackley’s chairman Keith Cartwright said: “They not only entered into the spirit of the match while we were playing but were happy to sign autographs, chat with the crowd and play cricket with the kids.
“They were brilliant helping us to raise some much needed funds and more importantly to support the efforts of the club in staging such a game.”
