A CRICKET tournament in aid of charity will be taking place at Hatfield Hyde Cricket Club.

The competition will be held in memory of Oliver Mills, who died aged 18 in 2005 from a brain tumour.

It is in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT). The Oliver Mills trophy will take place on Sunday, August 25 and will feature a full day of cricket, and entertainment, followed by a raffle and live music.

Teams include a number of Hatfield Hyde teams, plus Datchworth, Crusaders, Just Energy Solutions and the Green Army – a team made up of Oliver’s friends, who despite their best efforts usually finish a commendable last place.

Oliver’s brother, Eddie Mills, 32, said: “This is always a great day and the perfect way to remember Oli, whilst raising money for two great causes.

“We’re hoping this fabulous weather holds and we get a sunny day for once.

“There are some great raffle prizes and lots of entertainment for all ages so please do come down and enjoy the day with us.”

Hatfield Hyde Cricket Club is located at King George V Playing Fields, Beehive Lane, WGC, AL7 4BP.
