Airbus employees enjoy visit to Hawarden Park CC

A FRENCH cricket club enjoyed a weekend in Flintshire – despite a thrashing on the pitch at the hands of their Welsh rivals.

Members of Toulouse Cricket Club headed to Hawarden Park CC on Saturday, September 17, where the visitors were only saved from defeat to the hosts by the inclement weather.

And on Sunday Toulouse lost to Shotton and Northop Hall.

The French squad was made up of players from as far afield as Australia and Bangladesh and included a number of Airbus employees.

Toulouse chairman Andy Gordon said: “We’ve had a fantastic weekend – despite the cricket!

“We made some great new friends and hope they will consider a visit to Toulouse for a rematch.”
