This year has to be one of the best Easters we have had for the weather for a long, long time. Certainly it was one of the best for the start of the cricketing season when Market Overton CC took on Oakham CC at the Market Overton ground.
You could be forgiven for thinking you were sat around the ground in the height of a glorious summer watching a great game of cricket between two local teams-Market Overton Cricket Club and Oakham Cricket Club second eleven.
The match was played in a very competitive but friendly manner in which Oakham came out on top. Oakham CC second eleven scoring 213 for 9 and Market Overton CC 181 all out despite Watkins’ magnificent 68 and Mark Hudson’s 40.
