OUCH! 2017


The 15th annual OUCH! Charity Cricket Match was held on Green at Charterhouse on Sunday 28th May 2017.  The weather forecast was for afternoon thunderstorms, which may have deterred some from coming, but the morning was sunny, and in fact there was a pretty good turnout.  Fortunately there was no storm, but there were clouds and intermittent light rain.

The captains were Jamie Carter (OU) and Mike Bristowe (CH).  The OU team scored 147 for 7 wickets after 20 overs.  The CH team scored 139 for 5 wickets after 20 overs.  The series now stands at OU 4, CH 10, and one tie.  The OU Man of the Match was George O’Connor.  The CH Man of the Match was Archie Hill.   Thank you to all the players for an exciting match.

The sun reappeared after the match was over, just in time for the raffle draw.  This year’s match raised a record £3,746 for the Foundation, partly from the raffle but mainly from generous donations made before, during and after the match.

That brought the total raised by all 15 OUCH! matches to £25,246.  Our grateful thanks to everyone who has contributed to that achievement.
