The Pier Field was resplendent in the summer sunshine with a marquee erected to host lunch for around 200 guests.

The MCC won the match by 233 runs to Berwick’s 199, but in truth the scoreline was irrelevant.

It was all about the occasion and celebrating Berwick’s 175 not out!

During the day Keenan highlighted Berwick Cricket Club’s future plans for the Pier Field, with the construction of a new £300,000 clubhouse, shared by the Tennis Club, which will include changing rooms and a new function suite.
