Darren Gough, the ex-England fast bowler and Strictly Come Dancing contestant is now an ambassador for Collier Cheese. The largest cheese festival is held in Nantwich and Aston Cricket Club juniors were asked if they wanted to meet Darren at the cheese festival and challenge him at a cricket game on Xbox 360. The boys had a fantastic time and Darren was great, chatting and joking with the boys. All of the boyss were given a mini cricket bat which Darren signed for them and a large slab of cheese! Rory was the boys captain.

Calum scored 25 not out for the Aston Juniors tonight. The picture above shows him walking back to the clubhouse. There is a local adult knock out league run at the club and when one of the teams dropped out, the juniors entered. It’s a 20/20 match and you have to retire on 25, which Calum did after opening the batting. He batted really well against adult bowlers who gave no quarter. In the end, the juniors just fell short, losing by 9!

The website for our local village cricket team that the boys play for, Aston has had a website for a year but with no content. I have now taken on the responsibility of updating it and you can see it here: www.astoncricketclub.co.uk. It’s very basic as it has been build using something called PageMaker which is very restrictive. Will try to change that over the next few months and move to html.
