England stars at Jesmond Ground

The England PD XI team – starring physically disabled cricketers – has played North East Universities at the Jesmond Ground. The match marked the Paralympics and was a fundraiser for the Army Benevolent Fund.

Especially welcome was England player Ian Nairn, a former Newcastle CC captain – pictured below playing for the club in 2007.

The match resulted in a win for the North East universities team, crowning a season when it won all five trophy tussles.
