Headley Cricket Club continued their 150th anniversary celebrations on Sunday in glorious weather at the Bordon and Oakhanger Sports Club (BOSC).

The day started with an excellent lunch, catered by the BOSC team, at which new chairman Keith Ellis outlined the club’s plans for the start of the next 150 years.

In appreciation of the help and support shown to the club as tenants at the BOSC by the Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company (WBRC) team, Keith presented James Child, project lead for WBRC, with honorary club membership and an anniversary shirt.

Representative team manager George Ellis had taken along a strong I’Anson XI for a 20/20 game after lunch.

Headley won the toss and elected to bat, racking up 121 in their 20 overs. Calvin Bandi got the innings off to a fine start but Samad Khan of Dogmersfield and Olly Clayton-Jones from Frensham kept the scoring rate down by picking up regular wickets.

Scott Tilson of Elstead was the pick of the I’Anson batters as they comfortably reached their target with five balls to spare and five wickets in hand, despite Devyn Scott’s best efforts with the ball.

Ellis said: “The good crowd was entertained during the afternoon with live music and a hog roast – a fitting way to celebrate an important anniversary.”
