New to 2019 and returning in 2020. Sunday 5th July sees the next generation of cricketers take over BGL Cricket Week. Running in the same format as the senior event, local junior teams will battle it out for the coveted Kidz Blast trophy.
Title sponsors BGL Group are once again supporting the event that will see Burghley Park take on a visiting side each day from 10:30am (11am on Friday). Returning visiting sides include the Authors XI, Gentlemen of Lincolnshire, Gentlemen of West Norfolk and MCC, along with the addition of an ECB Staff XI playing against the Club to open the week on Monday 6th July.
Each evening, from 6pm, sixteen local sides will battle it out for the coveted ‘sixes’ trophy. Oundle Town are the current holders of the trophy and will be keen to retain the title, but there are some strong contenders to challenge them this year. Look out for the Buckles ‘Champagne Moment’ winners each evening to see who has performed well.
Three six-a-side fixtures are played each evening in the knock-out style tournament, culminating in the finals night on Friday.
Running alongside the cricket is the ever beer festival, the Konnexx bar will be providing refreshments in the Cabel UK beer tent, provided by Stamford Marquee Company, throughout the week stocking a large variety of local real ales, such as Oakham Ales, as well as plenty from further afield too as part of the Club’s annual beer festival. For the non-ale drinkers there will be Adnams champagne, wine and gin on offer too. A BBQ, run by Beetroot catering, will be on hand to serve some great food throughout the week.
