The next team in our series of introductions of teams participating in the Cricket On Ice Trophy in 2023 are #COI debutantes Gussetts XI.
The Gussets were formed in 1988 and were named after the famous Victorian seamstress Florence Gusset (long story).

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.
The Gussets XI squad will be announced in due course:
