Isham C.C. News Letter
ISHAM CRICKET CLUB
The season continues with results being a mixed bag, including an unusual tie with Desborough when both sides scored 220.
The highlight of the game was our overseas player Ben Atkinson scoring 91 lateon. On the same day, Ian Kelland scored 110 not out for the seconds and David Hobbs got 109 not out for the Zingari.
Had Ben managed a deserved century it would surely have created some sort of record for the club.
All our fixtures can be found at http://isham.play-cricket.com.
Please come along to support the sides and enjoy our excellent facilities at the same time. Everyone will be made very welcome.

Due to Sir Tim Rice's diary demands, the Heartaches fixture has been moved again. It is now on Sunday, June 25 and will still prove to be a very sociable and enjoyable occasion.
There are still a few tickets remaining for the Summer Ball - although this is the last call. It takes place on Friday, July 7 and there is a James Bond theme to this year's event. As always there will be live music, disco, dinner and auction so please come along and join us.
Anyone who feels they might be able to donate a suitable auction prize should contact Chris Tiney on 07930 505897 - as should anyone requiring tickets.
Sunday, July 23 is set for the President's Match. Our president, Stuart Hardy, will skipper his Invitational XI against an Isham side. All are welcome to support Stuart and the bar. Alternatively a cup of tea may also be available.
