Inter-Office Cricket

Spurred on by our partnership of English Cricket, the eagerly awaited cricket match between our Theale Head Office and our Gloucester Office took place, yesterday. Despite the recent ‘changeable’ weather, the teams were blessed with a warm Summer evening.

Theale won the toss and chose to bat, where they started strongly with some big hits from Glenn Caton and Len Sexon and ended on 139-9 off their 20 overs.

Gloucester started badly losing early wickets but some good batting from George Adhere and Mike Lindsey brought them back into the game. Sadly for Gloucester, it wasn’t enough and they finished on 117 off their 20 overs.

Gloucester will be after revenge when the teams face-off in their rematch. We’ll keep you posted.

About Laithwaites Wine

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux... and fell in love with real wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share these delicious wines with friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that boutique wineries were soon queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from... including red, white and rosé, plus Champagne and sparkling, beer and cider.
