2:00pm Tuesday 11th September 2012 in News
A FESTIVAL of cricket took place in Oxford in the hope of uncovering England’s next Freddie Flintoff.
The event, backed by a £4,000 grant from Oxford City Council , was held at Cowley Marsh Park on Sunday.
A tournament, featuring eight players competing in a single innings, was won by the Oxford Warriors.
Deputy lord mayor Mohammed Abbasi, who represents Cowley Marsh, said: “We had a lot of players and it was a good chance for the community to get together. It was a good day from an informative point of view as well.”
There was also entertainment, food and theatre displays.
