Costa Rica

Costa Rica side travel to Limon

Will Luke

CCCR travelled to Limon on January 13 where they were greeted by two charming representatives of the Mayor who had been invited by Limon CC. CCCR batted first on a beautiful day and made 144 for 5 in their 25 overs. Limon never recovered from a bad start, losing two wickets in the first over. After some spirited resistance they were all out in less than the allotted 25 overs. Limon CC arranged a good late lunch which was much appreciated. CCCR now lead the league.

In terms of development Richard Illingworth and Sam Arthur spent two days in the Limon area after the CCCR and Limon CC game. They covered a lot of ground, met many people and identified a number of opportunities.

Sam Arthur has started regular coaching sessions with Limon CC and has given a video presentation to the youngsters at Robleato.

Will Luke
Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
