Celebrity Cricket Players Bring out the Crowds at Piers Morgan’s Family Match


Over 500 spectators turned up to watch Piers Morgan lead a team of family and celebrity friends play cricket against Newick Cricket Club on 31st August. 

The club, sponsored by TR Fastenings, put up a brave effort against Piers Morgan’s team, which included such famous cricketing stars as Shane Warne, Adam Hollioake and Tino Best, but ultimately lost the match. 

Final Score: 

Pier’s Morgan XI 148 for 4 after 20 overs

Newick Cricket Club XI 105 for 8 after 20 overs

 

“It was a hugely enjoyable afternoon, full of good humour and some great cricket by both sides,” commented David Strachan, Newick C.C. Scorer “There aren’t many village sides which get to play against the professional cricket players, so it was a huge thrill for our players.”
