Vatican cricket team at the park

Vatican cricket

On Sunday St Peter’s (Preston Park) played host to St Peter’s cricket club from the Vatican. Apparently the Vatican cricket club were on a short tour of England, and interestingly all of their players are originally from either India or Sri Lanka. The Vatican team members are actually seminary students, training to be priests. They very definitely loved their cricket.

Here’s the two teams at the end of the match, lining up together for a presentation and group photograph. The match attracted a good number of spectators on what proved to be a lovely warm ‘Indian Summer afternoon.

For the record, St Peter’s of Preston Park won by 54 runs.
