On Sunday 14th September St Peter’s Cricket Club welcomed their most hotly anticipated rivals in the club’s 131 year history – the St Peter’s cricket team from the Vatican!
Therefore you can image the surprise of Chairman David Corney when he came across another St Peter’s Cricket Club in a newspaper article earlier this year, based in the Vatican. Corney immediately got in touch with the team and arranged the one off match as part of the Vatican team’s ‘Light of Faith’ tour.
The Vatican cricket team, which includes Priests and Seminarians, was actually started as part of wider efforts by the Vatican to encourage interfaith dialogue. The game against their namesakes was their first match outside of Rome, so a huge honour for the Brighton side.
Over 500 people arrived at Preston Park to watch the match, which started at 2:30pm on Sunday 14th September 2014. The Brighton team won the toss and continued their winning streak all the way through the match, stealing victory from their rivals. The final score was 168 for 5 in 20 overs for Brighton, and 114 for 8 in 20 overs for the Vatican side.
Once again the entire Holidaysafe team would just like to say huge congratulations to the victorious St Peter’s side, and hopefully this will open up many more high profile matches for the fantastic team.
