A WARGRAVE cricketer had a lifelong dream come true when he represented England against Australia in the first over 70s Ashes at Winchester’s Hursley Park.

Ron Martin, 78, who has played for both Wargrave and Berkshire, helped England to victory last Thursday. England batted first and in the 50 overs match scored 164-7 with Martin scoring 23 not out with his last shot being swept away for four.

Australia were never threatening and finally were all out for 102.
