An open day was held at Braywood Cricket Club which saw a memorial match played in memory of three members.

The open day, which was attended by more than 200 people, featured junior training, a barbecue, raffle, entertainment, tea and cakes, and the match on Sunday.

Sarah Grace, from Braywood Cricket Club committee, said: "It was a super day and the weather was perfect.

"We had junior training in the morning, followed by some tea and cakes.

"We were given £100 by the English Cricket Board, sponsored by Waitrose, towards the barbecue food which was great.

"In the afternoon, we had the memorial match, which was held in memory of Cyril Knight, Alan Austen and Jack Elliot, who were all members of the club."

Money raised from the event will go towards a new scoreboard for the club and a storage facility for the junior kit.
