Takeley Cricket Club members feature on Sky Sports' coverage of The Hundred after fundraising walk to Lord's




Takeley Cricket Club members became TV personalities when they completed a fundraising walk to Lord's in memory of club legend Malcolm Brown.

The party of 17 were filmed by Sky Sports cameras as they reached the home of cricket in the capital at 5pm on Thursday July 29 having set off from their own home of cricket in Takeley the previous day.

They were then given a shout-out by the broadcaster's commentary team during its live coverage of The Hundred competition.

Malcolm died in the summer of 2018 having been a player, secretary and dedicated scorer at the club for 24 years. He was 59.

And the walk in his memory smashed its £8,000 target and has currently raised £14,100. Club members are raising money for St Clare Hospice, which looked after Malcolm in his final months, and for an electronic scoreboard that will be a lasting memorial to him.
