The Strand gave witness to International Cricket (well almost) as the club hosted Notts CCC U17s v Wales U17s
The game was a 'coloured clothing' affair, played with a white ball and blacked out sightscreens, all that was missing was the floodlights! On a chilly, damp day Notts CCC emerged as the victors of a very entertaining game scoring 259 in 50 overs. The Welsh reply started well, but fell around 45 runs short.
Players and coaches from both sides were very appreciative of the excellent facilities provided on and off the field, ground preparation and catering provision doing the club proud - thank you to all those volunteers involved in making the day a success despite the cool conditions.
Look out for more Notts CCC representative matches as the season progresses.
