Cricket vs Coimbra Knights itenary

In 2019 we decided at the AGM to go to Portugal to play Amigos cricket club in 2020 in Ansiao.  COVID came about before we could go in 2020 so we postponed the tour in 2020 and again in 2021.  We now are very hopeful of going and are now playing Coimbra Knights instead as they are closer to the hotel (and the tour captains swimming pool!!).

These details are subject to change due to COVID as we have already had to postpone this tour in 2020 and 2021.  

Due to Brexit you will need to arrange your own travel and health insurance for any trips abroad.

Thursday 13th October Fly to Lisbon from Heathrow on TAP. Flight leaves at 11:20 am. Arrive Lisbon 14:00. Travel by bus to the Ansiao and check into our hotel.

Friday 14th October Morning spent looking around. Get to ground around 5-6pm. Evening 20:20 game under flood lights

Saturday 15th October All day game starting 11am. No limit on overs.

Sunday 16th October 20:20 all day test match game. Two innings per side.

Monday 17th October Look around local area (central Portugal) in the morning. Travel by bus to Lisbon for 15:00 flight to Heathrow on TAP arriving at 17.45.

 

Notes

 

With 3 games in 3 days we will need to take plenty of spare shirts!  Ideally we should only wear club shirts for the games.

We will need a one day shirt for the evening game on the Friday night as it will be played under lights.  We are looking into getting a club tour shirt to go for this sponsored by the club and hopefully external sponsors as well.

The pitch is an artificial football pitch so has short side boundaries everyone is expected to score a 6!

The Judge is John Bishop and his decision is final!
