Ken Block Trophy
In 2019 the Superstars will, for the first time go oversea (sic) and tour the beautiful Isle of Wight. Please find below details of the four games, the hotel and other useful information. There will also be updates via twitter if I can get it to work.
The Tour should be a wonderful four days of cricket, team-bonding and creating new friends on the more stylish side of the Solent. Tour is always a family affair with some players bringing partners, while others also bring kids - others, if we are frank, use it as a chance to get away from such things! We welcome all to come along. Even Dodgers! There'll be a communal hotel, but some (perhaps with young kids) may prefer to make their own arrangements and players are not anticipated to be required for every game they are on the island for, so there will be some chances for tourist adventures or long days of getting to know the bottom of a local glass.

Rowborough Lane, PO36 0AY.
Match Format: 40 overs / Timed Match (TBC).
The Sunday match will be in the east of the island at Brading, which is also a stop on the island's railway line. Brading appear to be a non-league team who play many touring sides. Thanks to Chairman Conway for speaking to strangers on the train to get a start on this fixture. The ground is on main road between Brading and Ryde - about half a mile outside Brading village on the main road.

Westhill Road, PO37 6PT.
Match Format: 30 overs.
The finale brings us the sunshine coast in the south east of the island. Shanklin's 1st XI play in the Hampshire League which probably makes them the "biggest" team we'll face - let's hope there aren't too many first teamers in action for this match!
