The sun shone and that meant a great day for all those that came along to this years Village 6’a-side on Sunday……… Fourteen teams competed and a huge thanks to everyones favourite Shrek impersonator Simon Edmonds who demonstrated great command of the clip board and his gaggle of scorers and umpires who ensured that the matches were all played on-time and in good spirits.
In the end Cory Laywood and his “curmudgeons” won out but this really is one of those events where the taking part is more important than the winning (not according to Cory who ‘allegedly’ imported players to help his quest for the Holy Cricketing Grail).
In addition to the cricket, there was a bouncy castle, a fantastic face painter (see pictures elsewhere in this newsletter), a tuck shop and BBQ.
The Sixes competition has been running for a generation or two now and is an important part of our community life. KCC gets to raise some funds through the BBQ and Bar but more importantly it gets to make some friends and to give non-cricketers the chance to have a go.
A huge thanks to those that helped with the cricket, with the bar, with the tuck shop, with the BBQ and with the unseen work tidying up at the end.
It was slightly disappointing that more players were unable to make it this year and we would ask you to please note that the event always takes place on the Bank Holiday Sunday in August so put the date in your 2015 diary now and ensure you do your bit to support KCC and Kibworth.
