Sorry, there are no dates at present. Please check back regularly.
Due to the sad demise of Paperlinx we did not manage to arrange a cricket match this year, we will try to get something arranged for 2016.
Report on match v PaperlinX - Thurs, 11th September 2014
PICT were hosted by Paperlinx at WOLLASTON CRICKET CLUB for our annual 20-20 Cricket match on Thursday 11th September 2014.

Paperlinx lost the toss and were put into bat by PICT Captain Mike Robertson.

Representing Paperlinx were:
Richard Wilson, M Mayes,D Riddle, M Swann, M King, M Duckworth, B Caheill, D Melville, D King and S Laundon.
PICT started well and had Paperlinx on 2runs for 2 wickets after 2 overs, thanks to some good bowling from Darren Hinchcliffe. Paperlinx then got into there rythymn and pushed there score along with both David Riddle & Mike Swan retiring at 31. They were both backed up by Marcus King (Son of Darren) whom batted well before retiring at 35. He did manage to run his dad out for 2, no pocket money for Marcus. In an effort to give Paperlinx a high scoring last over, Mike Robertson bowled the last over and his strange bopwling action baffled the batsmen with Mike taking 3 wickets to restrict Paperlinx to 121 runs.
A very credible total, but one which PICT felt they could chase down.
Ian Huskinson and Tom Boyle opened thet batting with Ian reaching 30 before he had to retire, Matthew Boyle scored 25, Joe Collins 16 but Paperlinx bowled and fielded very well and as with most years the match came down to the last over.
PICT managed to get over the winning line with 1 ball to spare reaching 122 runs.
The match was played in great spirit and some high class cricket was played by both teams.
