WEST Indian legend Courtney Walsh was the star of the show when Lashings headed to Hadleigh & Thundersley.

The side packed full of former internationals beat their hosts by 99 runs.

And Hadleigh chairman Kevan Jenkinson was proud to see John Burrows Park packed out for another successful day’s play.

“As ever we had a fantastic crowd and great atmosphere at John Burrows,” said Jenkinson.

“Lashings brought down a strong side of ex-Test players from around the world.

“It was also a privilege to welcome back the legend Courtney Walsh, who last played here in 1992.

“This has to be one of best free entry events in the area and it also enables us to raise funds for Havens Hospices. Plans will start soon for next year.”

Lashings batted first and scored 265/4 in their 25 overs, with Faisal Iqbal top scoring with 67.

In reply, Hadleigh were bowled out for 166 with Sam Handley leading the way for the home side with an impressive 57 not out.

Lashings - who describe themselves as the Harlem Globetrotters of cricket - also included former England internationals Chris Schofield, Martin Bricknell, Chris Lewis and Dean Headley.

However, Walsh - who took more than 500 Test wickets in his career - was the biggest star in attendance.
