Both teams were joined by a celebrity guest, with Lorraine Chase adorning the Wood & Pilcher team and Paul Prichard, ex-Essex captain and Chairman of Cricket for the Lord’s Taverners, turning out for the opposition.

Former Kent and England captain Chris Cowdrey acted as umpire.

The game was held at Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club’s county ground, The Nevill, with Wood & Pilcher slipping to defeat by three runs off the last ball.

The Lord’s Taverners is a charity dedicated to creating opportunities for young people from deprived areas, and those with disabilities, to engage in sport and recreation in their local communities.

Wood & Pilcher is a business partner of the West Kent region.
