Yesterday, North Perrott Cricket Club sent Pentyrch home after a convincing win in front of a large crowd of home supporters. NPCC now go through to the quarter finals of the National Village Cup against Frocester Cricket Club, again at home next Sunday afternoon.
Looking at the Frocester Cricket Club website, they have some startling similarities to North Perrott. The village has a population of less than 200, a village pub and farm shop! Most perturbingly, it has a Cricket Club that is described on their website by Simon Jones MBE, as a “Friendly thriving club with possibly the best pavilion I’ve seen at club level”
They make no mention of a nationally recognised head groundsman or being the best ground in Gloucestershire, so North Perrott still has the bragging rights in what is expected to be a tight and hard fought match.
Sunday 30th August, 13.00 at North Perrott Cricket Club Ground, Willis Lane. Bar will be open. Social distancing rules apply.
