Family Cricket Day 2017
Despite the showers, this year’s Northern Energy Family Cricket Day went off without a hitch.
Every year Northern Energy plays host to Leeds, Sheffield and York-based Lupton Fawcett Solicitors in a friendly game of cricket. The game is played in memory of chairman – Howard Illingworth’s father and grandfather who founded the company in 1932.
The game consists of 20 overs each and followed up by a family BBQ with a bouncy castle for the littleys.
I am happy to say we won this year and reclaimed the the crystal bowl that takes pride of place in Howard’s office.
After 20 overs, the scores were Northern Energy 113 – Lupton Fawcett 100.
The player of the match award went to Ted Illingworth.
Young player of the match award went to Grace Illingworth.
