Willows Cricket Club

There was some very exciting cricket in the weekend, including the New Zealand/UK match. Dame Patsy and Sir David attended a Willows Club dinner on Saturday night in Christchurch and a match the following day, where her team of aspiring Black Caps, the Governor-General's Youth XI, took on an invitation side that included first-class players of yesteryear.

It was a very satisfactory result for the Governor-General's Youth XI

Governor General’s Youth XI:    166        (Max Chu 37, Mitchell Hay 36, Andrew Nuttall 4 for 24,  Ewen Chatfield 4 for 26)


Willows Invitation XI:                      118         (James Marshall 40, Ricard Turpie 3 for 13, Jack Mockford 2 for 12)
