Eidgenhossen win 3rd Cricket Veloz Trophy for second successive year

  Posted on: December 30th, 2008

The annual Cricket Veloz tournament was a huge success on 14 December.  The 4 local Lima teams competed for the fantastic trophy donated by our number one sponsor Chimu Adventures.  The Nick Appleyard-led Eigenhossen team was victorious for the second time in the history of the tournament with India (Chak De), Kiteflyers and Lima Cricket and Football Club having varying degrees of success during the day.  The Player of the Tournament was Paul Barnes from the Kiteflyers team.  It was a great way to get the teams together before the Christmas break.

The official season starts next Sunday Feb 1st at the Lima Cricket and Football club with the Viv Ash ‘Gin and Tonic Challenge’.  We have big plans afoot this Centenary year of the ICC, which also happens to be the 150 anniversary of Cricket in Peru: We are looking forward to travelling to Sao Paolo for the South American Championships over Easter; We are also hosting a Hollywood Golden Oldies team in March and have invited a Guayanan Masters team and an Argentina team to participate in a weekend tournament to commemorate 150 years at the Lima Cricket and Football club.
