GANDHI GLOBAL PEACE FESTIVAL T20 MATCH

Two teams comprised of U16 juniors from our club took part in a special T20 exhibition match at our ground on the 19th July. The match was part of a Gandhi Global Family (GGF) Peace Festival Day sponsored by De Montfort University. The GGF is a non-profit organisation affiliated to the United Nations and works to share the peace message of Mahatma Gandhi around the world.

The match was tightly contested with the Brazil Street Blues narrowly beating the Burnmoor Street Reds with both sides scoring over 140 in 20 overs. The sides coached by Clive Notman and Sachi Manokaran were presented with a trophy and medals by the GGF Vice President Padmashri SP Varma.
