Needle Cricket Match – 4 September

Adderbury cricket needs you. We might get our cricket field back one day but, in the meantime, we will have to make do with the 27th staging of the annual needle against the boys from Milton taking place in the Broughton and North Newington Cricket Club starting a 1.00 pm. Adderbury stormed to an impressive win in 2021 and this year we think we can really do the business again if we can get a passionate team of Adderburians with the odd tinge of talent. If you fancy a game contact Nick Fennell on 811059 or nick.fennell319@btinternet.com.  The teas and BBQ are well worth the trip as will be the Hooky in The Bell later|!
