Cricket teams come together to raise £400 for Macmillan

A MICKLEHURST select X1, featuring players past and present, took on a returning Tamworth team in this year’s charity match at Richmond Hill.

The link between the two clubs was established when former player Michael Wild moved to Tamworth where he is captain of the team.

Tamworth asked to return to Micklehurst who offered to visit the Midlands for this summer’s clash.

The final amount raised has yet to be finalised, but it looks like Macmillan Cancer Support will raise around £400.

Despite Lancashire’s Aaron Lilley returning to Micklehurst, where he began his playing days, he could not prevent Tamworth from edging a narrow victory.
