FAVERSHAM EVENING LEAGUE AT ITS BEST
While John was watching a thrilling finish in Durham , Myself and Ron Deaton set off to watch Gillamoor against Spout Houses in the Faversham league. The league has been to reduced to four village teams which included the two this evening and Slingsby and High Farndale. Gillamoor village is about four miles from Pickering on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors.
When we arrived at just after six o,clock the ground had been cut yesterday and the wicket rolled. Ron sat next to the farmer who established the ground in the 1950,s and used the roller that I photograph to level the ground. It was all done by hand and no horses were used so it must have been a massive job.
