The sound of leather on willow on a summer’s day, such an idyllic traditional English afternoon. Sunday 29th August sees the Apsley House cricket team play in their 3rd consecutive cup final, this time against fellow Southsea drinking establishment the Leopold.
St Helens cricket ground is the venue (next door to the Tenth Hole tea rooms in case you were wondering) with everyone gearing up for a great cricketing event. Spectators are encouraged to come and cheer on both teams as well as bring your own picnic and drinks. Hopefully you’ll be needing suncream too!
I’m not too sure who my money is on. I have been known to frequent the Apsley however I am an Albert Road boy by nature. Whoever claims victory it promises to be a great sporting occasion.
Match starts at 2pm
