Pack Those De-Fibs Away
Pacific v Crossbats at Marble Hill Park
Sat 08 Sep 2018 at 1pm
Drawn 
Veterans fixture

Club founder Pete Hollman tells us that the 1980s Pacific veterans drew this match. Hopefully he might write match report here.

Unfortunately I only arrived in time to see the final over & Adrian Duthie gamely hanging in. It was a hugely successful & enjoyable day with notable stats award going to Tony Summerbell who finally made his 100th appearance & winning the record for the biggest gap between matches. All this & falling flat on his face on landing when bowling his 1st delivery. Including his blow on the toe when batting & Adroan pulling a muscle I cannot recall where, everyone else survived & the defibrillators packed away until next Summer when the exercise will be attempted again but on a Sunday. I may be even tempted to make it myself. Cheers Pete.

Here’s what youngest vet Ian Lay said about it “Hi all, Just wanted to say what a great day it was on Saturday. Lovely to see so many former Pacific players playing and turning up to support us. I think we can say it was a fun game and and we al contributed to the Veterans being undefeated in 2018. A big thanks to Crossbats for hosting the game. They were great as always. Looking forward to doing this again next year. Winter well. Folks. Ian.
