IN an echo of a match played in mid-Victorian times, Lindum CC will host an Australian side on August 1.
Starting at 11.30am, Lincolnshire 60 Plus side will line up against a touring Australia 60 Plus team.
Lincolnshire’s squad includes: Keith West, captain, (Louth CC); Dick Papps, (Keelby); Geoff Sewell, (Hartsholme and Saxilby); John Mountain, (Sleaford and Billingborough); John Taylor and Paul Taylor, (Appleby-Frodingham); Peter Spencer, (Welby); Terry Wilkinson, (Burgh-le-Marsh); Barry Hinslip, (Grimsby); Mike Smith, (Old Lincolnians); Mike Savage, (Old Lincolnians); Keith Dent, (Immingham, ex-Grimsby Police); Mick Powell, (Appleby-Frodingham); Bob Leafe, (Cleethorpes). After the game - at 6pm - there will be a presentation of trophies to the men of the match, and caps for all participants.
An evening meal will then give the men from down-under a true taste of their host county, with Lincolnshire sausage, potatoes and peas being served. Spectators will be welcome at this game.
