1462 for 73 off 143 overs, with 98 4s and 24 6s!!  The Final decided off the last ball for the third time in four years!  The 13th Cheriton 6s again provided exciting non-stop cricket on Bank Holiday Monday.  After 15 matches, and over 10 hours action, it was hosts Cheriton who reclaimed the Trophy for the first time since 1998 with victory over local rivals and holders Tichborne Park.


At 7am it was raining but it quickly stopped. By 9am we had sunshine and clouds and got off to a promptish start at 9:15.  There was one very light shower but no stoppage of play.  The spectators were suitably nourished by teas, cakes, beers and hog roast. 

There were a few umpiring moments but no ball tampering only several lost ones.  Why do players occasionally have such a different "video recording" of the last ball compared to the umpires? 

There was an interesting failure to read the competition rules by two teams. They had some points transferred to the opposition for using the same opening batsmen in more than one group matches.  Each team had to use six batsmen to open their three games.
As always the Cheriton 6's on Bank Holiday Monday, takes place as part of the four-day Cheriton Cricket, Beer and Balloon Festival. Cheriton CC are playing the IIXth men on Saturday afternoon and Winchester College Staff on Sunday. 

Thank you again to the Flower Pots Inn for their support for the Sixes.  There will be many real ales available and bands will be playing throughout the weekend starting on Friday! 

The Sixes starts at 09:10 on Monday with Compton and Chandlers Ford playing Witness the Fitness. There are twelve interlaced games for the eight teams to decide the winners and runners up of two leagues. The semi- finals commence at 17:15.  The day ends with the final starting at 18:40 followed by the presentations.

The current champions are Tichborne Park.

Again this year there is a BBQ/Hog Roast provided for all players and of course also for supporters and spectators.  There is a Beer Tent (to save you the walk across the Pots) and tea and cakes will be served in the clubhouse at various times during the day.

For families with young children, please note that there is a playground on site and that there is nearly continuous cricket!  Please keep an eye on your children, so that they do not interfere with play or endanger themselves.
