In pictures: Charity cricket match ends in 'friendly draw'

 

A charity cricket match between two rival pubs in Windsor ended in a 'friendly draw' yesterday.

Teams from the Crispin pub in Grove Road and the Criterion in Peascod Street battled it out at the Vansittart Road Recreation Ground.

Starting at 10.30am the two teams both batted for an hour each as they competed for glory - and bragging rights.

Teams were made up of regulars and staff from each pub and had to stump up £10 each to pay.

Money was being raised for Paul's Trust, a small family charity based in the town which helps children with various disabilities.

Landlady at the Crispin, Stephanie Croffan, said the idea for the match came about after thinking of ways in which they could help the charity.

"It was really good," she said.

"We really enjoyed ourselves."

But despite the heated sporting action, Stephanie added that the rivalry between the pubs was just 'friendly banter'.

Plans are now in place to stage a similar event next year.

The amount raised is still being calculated.
