Maybush Vs Fox Football

Wednesday 18th May 2016 saw the Maybush take on the Fox at football. A great mix of people in both teams from those who play regularly to those that could barely stand whilst trying to run. Played in three sessions of half hour each, we took to the main pitch at ITFC. The ground was organised thanks to the work of Matt Clarke who works for the football club.

It has been said that the true gravity of playing on ITFC’s pitch was lost on me, but for those who regularly attend the ground, it was a magical experience. Unfortunately the roar of the crowd was limited to the voices of about 25 spectators, but we appreciated all of their support.

The shirts were kindly supplied by Deben Inns and made it a great spectacle. The Maybush team sported the home kit whilst the away kit adorned the Fox players. Everyone got to play thanks to the managers operating a rolling substitution process.

After the game, Deben Inns hosted a buffet in the Maybush for the participants, so thanks for the great support from Steve and Lou

The match raised around £800 for the ‘Sir Bobby Robson memorial fund’ and one of the charities supported by our late friend Bobby Bullard. group

Fox vs Maybush Cricket 2015

The Match

Sunday 27th September saw the annual Fox Vs Maybush cricket match on the cricket meadow in Fishpond Road Waldringfield. Now I don’t know a lot about cricket so would welcome a match report from someone who knows more (really, all reports would be welcome)!

I took around 2500 (yep!) photos so have selected and cropped a few here for you here.

It was a really great village event, with a very close score. A good turn-out of spectators even though it was quite chilly. Well done to2015-09-27 15.54.07-1 the organisers and thanks to Steve at the Fox for hosting the presentation and after match nibbles.

In the end, The Fox won by one run on the last ball, breaking a ten year run of defeats. Congratulations to The Fox team.
