On the 6th August 2017 a group of locate cricketer’s, from all different clubs from across London participated in a game setup to celebrate Emancipation Day; the game was played at South Hampsted Cricket Club.


The match was played in very high spirits, with each team member representing either ‘Team Abolitionists’ or ‘Team Liberators; each team player also played under their respective sponsor. After a closely fought match the final result, was Team Liberators winning by 30 runs. The highest run scorer for Team Liberators was Ravan Walcott for ‘Lancaster Care’ with 26, for Team Abolitionists was Nigel Shaw for ‘Pressor Jerk & Juices’; the scorecard can be downloaded here. As a warm-up to this special arranged match the teams played the West Indies team who are touring this year only the week before; we wonder who won? With the day being a great success a return match has already been arranged to be played next year to celebrate such an important day in history.
