2013 Tour - The Aggers Deep Heat Tour
The Aggers Deep Heat Tour was named as Bin Harry, tweeted Aggers earlier in the week, asking for some tour advice, and indicating that he was the youngest on tour at 35! THe tweet that came back from Aggers was "Pack some deep heat"! So hence the tour got named... "The Aggers Deep Heat Tour".
|Anthony "Tourboy" Josey||Andrew "Bin Harry" Inchley||Ali "Fat Controller" Kilfoil|

|Graham "Stumpy" Perkins||Mark "Hungover..." Readman||Jim "2 pints" Hewitt|
|Ian "Workoholic" Shanahan||Andrew "Blocker" Carrington||Mark "Tour Manager" Webb|
What happens on tour, stays on tour...
Friday - The Arrival
We were based at the Royal Winchester Hotel. With the early arrivals of BinHarry and Stumpy followed by Cheerio, Tour Boy and Big Hitter... with 2 pints, Blocker and Tour Manager arriving next leaving Fat Controller last... with Late Arrival not scheduled to arrive til Saturday morning, and finally Hungover on Sunday afternoon.
Saturday - First Tour Match
Portsmouth Community 2nd Eleven vs Grittleton
The tour manager, got a call early on Saturday morning, saying thier pitch was water logged and unplayable, and unfortunatly the match got cancelled.
This meant the tour team could go watch the Lions take on the might of Austrailia in the pub. Where apart from Bin Harry no one had an alcoholic drink! (well on the first round anyway). After a nail biting match and some luck the Lions took the win...
IN the afternoon GCC Tour had a game of quick cricket in a local park, where the oldest tour member was teamed up where the youngst tour member etc...
The rules where this...
Anyway I think the "Bin Harry" and "2 Pints" came last with a massive negative score, and the winners with a postive score were "Late Arrival" and "Tour Manager". The only other interesting fact was the "Tour Boy" managed to take about 10 wickets... (not sure how but he did....).
Sunday - Second and Final Tour Match
Goring vs Grittleton
The match report can be found here. Safe to say we didn't loose, as it was a timed game and therefore we drew!
The Fine Court
Captain Bin Harry failed to convene the tour fine court and therefore everyone incured a fine of £10, except the tour captain for failing to convene the Tour Find Court who therefore incurred a tour fine of £20!
- 1. I think we all went home slightly heavier than when we arrived... Due to the great success of this tour there is much discussion about next year's tour... watch this space for details...
- 2. Many thanks must go to Mark Webb for the organisation of this tour.
Match day awards will be presented for the following achievements:
