Milton Lilbourne Cricket Tea
On Wednesday October 11th, a tea and cricket match came off here as a sort of finish to the cricketing season for the present year. The weather, as usual, was against much outdoor play, but it would have surprised a stranger to see the plucky manner in which the Miltonians mustered on the bat-cricket field, and despite the rain a capital game of cricket was indulged in. In the meantime, tea and cake, bread and butter were being dispensed at 6d a head in the barn (kindly lent for the occasion by Mr LEWIS) to all who wished to partake. At the close of the match, the cricketers had tea, which was very acceptable as some being thoroughly soaked outside were anxious to be evenly balanced by being soaked inside as well, but only with "the cup that cheers but not enebriates". After the tea, three cheers were given for the ladies, especially to Miss CONWAY and the Misses GALE, for providing tea, decorating the barn, etc. Cheers were also given for the captain (J. KINGSTONE), and also for the 'big' and 'little' members of the club. The party then broke up having enjoyed themselves much at this second finishing up of the Milton Rangers cricketing season.
