Adderbury Cricket Heroes Romp Home in Runfest

The Hundred? India Test Match? Surely nothing as exciting as the 26th annual needle match between Adderbury and Milton – but this time the usual engineered tense finish was missing. A new-look youthful Adderbury team put Milton’s flagging attack to the sword, with village newcomer Ed Browning and weekender Chris Beaumont-Dark each scoring 101 not out in a dazzling partnership of 189, ensuring a mammoth total of 286-5 off just 35 overs. Let’s hope this signals to everyone that cricket in Adderbury and Milton can keep going. Will you be there? Call me! Nick Fennell 811059

Adderbury Cricket Needs You!

Fancy a game? – contact Nick Fennell now on 811059 or nick.fennell319@btinternet.com. Well you never know, we might get our cricket field back one day, but in the meantime we will have to make do with the 26th staging of the annual needle match against the boys from Milton. This year the big match will be on Sunday 5 September at Broughton & North Newington CC at 1.00 pm, when we will be fighting to retain our hold on the Millennium Trophy, inaugurated as part of the village celebrations in 1995.

Adderbury Ukulele Group

The group have been practising all through the lockdown via Zoom. For a short while last summer, they were able to play together on the Green, keeping social distancing, but this was short lived when greater restrictions were introduced. They used the down-time to extend their library of popular songs.  Mostly from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s, such as a medley of Drifters songs, Pussycat and Engelbert Humperdinck, but also a more modern Ronan Keating song.

With the easing of restrictions, the group have returned to the Adderbury Bowls Club on Monday evenings to play outside on the patio, where they practice the songs from their repertoire.  They clearly have a good time strumming and singing and are looking forward to playing in front of audiences again.
