Parrott Construction, just builders you may think? Not anymore!
Last month the Parrott Construction team, with the support of family and friends, organised a friendly cricket match against bpha.
Unfortunately, despite losing the match, we had a great evening which concluded with a delicious barbeque for both teams and spectators, provided by Parrott Construction employees Brian Dunlop and Margaret Wabel.
Thankfully the weather was pleasant and the game was played on a lovely summers evening on the 22nd July at Dean Cricket Club.
We put together a cracking team of 11 employees, consisting of; Russell Eady, Gary Hall, Nic Cowell, Anthony Parr, Chris Protty, Mick Hockley, Bob Marsh-Gabb, Barry Neale, Chris Layram, Kelvin Clarke & Le Westcarr. Parrott’s James Gommon was nominated for scoring duty.
bpha promote themselves with their promise to bring people together, and that they are involved in a wide range of community activities – which was proven on this night by gathering with us for a fun filled evening!
The Parrott Construction team won the toss and chose to bat, posting an admirable score of 155 for 6 wickets.
In the second innings it was a close call, with the match being decided on the last ball to bring up victory for bpha, winning the game with a final score of 156 for 6 wickets.
Chris Layram, Managing Director of Parrott Construction, thanked everyone for their contribution: “It was a very pleasant and enjoyable evening for Parrott Construction and bpha colleagues, friends and family.
“Although we lost the game we are already looking forward to next year’s game and for our chance to win the shield!
“Unfortunately for us, the major housing association and socially-motivated property development and management business managed to put a better team of cricketers together on the night, and retain the shield for another year.
“We hope we have better luck next year but we thank bpha for a great evening!”
