First team captains put in marathon effort

First team captains put in marathon effort

HENLEY Cricket Club’s first team captain Michael Roberts and vice-captain Stewart Davison successfully completed the Barcelona marathon on Sunday.

Batsman Roberts had the edge over his clubmate in the Catalan capital as he completed the 26.2 mile course in a time of three hours, 23 minutes and 30 seconds. Davison finished just over six minutes later in a time of three hours, 29 minutes and 53 seconds.

The duo were both raising money for charity and both exceeded their target amounts of £1,000 each. Roberts raised just under £1,700 for his chosen charity, the Professional Cricketers’ Association Benevolent Fund while wicket-keeper Davison raised just over £1,950 for Muscular Dystrophy UK.
