Seaford's Head of Cricket, Chris Adams, played in a charity match on Sunday. The match was at the residence of Sir Victor Blank and he holds the fixture every year, which used to be his XI v David Frosts XI.  Mark Nicholas, former Hampshire Captain and well known broadcaster, has taken on the David Frost XI in recent times.

Chris Adams said: "The match was for the charity Well Being for Women, a charity close to Sir Victors' wife. The two teams are made up of former international cricketers and business colleagues and friends of Sir Victors, notably Nigel Wray, Sir Martin Sorrell and Phil Jansen to name just a few, who are all passionate cricketers in their own right.

"Normally there is a marquee with 200+ people enjoying lunch etc. and an afternoon of fundraising while the two teams play a 30 over match. This year due to Covid-19 it was just the two teams to ensure the fixture continued. The cricketers this year were as follows:

"Mark Ramprakash, Gladstone Small, John Embury, Devon Malcolm, Martin Bicknell, John Stephenson, Phil Simmons, Mark Nicholas, Sir Andrew Strauss and myself.

"The Mark Nicholas team won a close match by 6 runs with your very own Seaford Head of Cricket making 53 not out off just 18 balls.

"A lovely day which despite the lack of attending guests still raised in excess of £200,000 for the charity."
