Rams Fan Neil Bennett organised the third annual charity cricket game at Spondon Cricket Club in July this year. Derby County Chief Executive Sam Rush and former Rams stars Roger Davies, Jason Kavanagh, Dick Pratley, John O’Hare, Graham Harbey and Mark Stallard switched sporting codes on what felt like the last day of summer. A Rams All-Star team took on Spondon’s resident team with the aim of raising money for our Derby County Community Trust Disability Programme. Whilst or all-stars lost by four runs it was an amazing which saw £2,503 raised from ticket sales and raffle.
Organiser Neil Bennett said: “It was a really superb day.”
DCCT have used this fantastic donation to buy 3 new Rams kits for our disabled football teams to play in at festivals around the Country. At the Leeds game we were delighted to invite event organiser Neil Bennett, Spondon Cricket Club Chairman Neil Kellogg and Rams Legend John O’Hare to make the presentation to some of our participants and Disability Development Officer Lauren Asquith.
A huge thank you to Neil, Spondon Cricket Club and everyone involved in the fantastic event for their amazing effort and their continued support.
