Charity Cricket Match

James and Oliver Phelps who play the Weasley twins in the Harry Potter movies delighted fans at a charity cricket match yesterday. They were joined on the team by actor Alfie Enoch, who plays the character Dean Thomas.

The Bunbury Cricket Club, which has been supported by countless stars from the worlds of sport and showbiz, put up the celebrity team, which included David English, vice-president of the English Schools Cricket Association.

They took on a Finedon side made up of a President’s Invitation XI, to celebrate the club’s 175th anniversary this year. Mr English, who founded the Bunbury Club 23 years ago, said: “It’s my second visit to this area and I’m delighted to be here.”

After an afternoon’s cricket the crowds were entertained by local musicians and supporters of the Finedon team, The Cupping Melons, with special guest the Rev Richard Coles, parish priest in Finedon and formerly of 1980s band The Communards.

Proceeds from the event will go to the English Schools Cricket Association.
