Ice cricketers settle score

Three local cricketers have returned from Norway victorious after helping their side win a match on snow and ice and raise vital funds for charity.

Steve Green, Andrew Scott and Jamie Burton were part of the Captain Scott XI cricket team that took part in The Captain Scott Arctic Challenge against a hardy team of Vikings – the Amundsen XI – last week.

The Twenty20 match marked the centenary of Captain Robert F Scott arriving at the South Pole in 1912 – only to find he and his team had been beaten by Roald Amundsen’s Norwegian expedition.
