Southfleet CC

I’ve been mates with Martin a long time for quite a few years he’s been badgering me to get my team out to sample the famous Ibiza CC hospitality. And so after a few false starts and then the shenanigans of the last couple of years, we finally got a team out to the sunny Balearic island.

First off, the hotel Martin sourced for us was just superb, 4 star overlooking the sea with its own pool and for a fantastic rate too – no complaints there.

A few of us were Ibiza veterans so knew what to expect in the town and as ever it didn’t disappoint – our youngsters took full advantage and as should be expected on tour our team squad was pretty subdued before the start of our two games. But the surroundings and friendly welcome soon had us revved up and we were then basking in our (albeit slightly deluded) experience of being international cricketers.

We had two games. We won one and lost one and we were happy with that – our hosts including Paul the skipper looked after us fantastically filling us with beers and bbq food, we couldn’t be wanting for anything. Ibiza CC have clearly got big plans for their ex polo ground venue and you can see that it’s going to be even more spectacular in no time and we as a group can’t wait to get back there. We’ve already booked for next year.
