Introducing Gussets XI

(Sat, 21 Jan 2023)

Next team in our series of introductions of teams participating in the Cricket On Ice Trophy in 2023 are #COI debutantes Gussets XI.

The Gussets are made up of cricket enthusiasts who became friends whilst playing school and university cricket with and against each other. Having played together for 35 years they know each others weaknesses and long forgotten our strengths.

This is their third overseas tour following South Africa in 1996/97 and Bordeaux in 2021. Now the wrong side of 50 – whilst their bodies may be broken, rather tragically their competitive spirit is not. Hoping the ice is nice and thick or we may lose a few of our more prosperous players.
