Compo Cricket

The true sport of gentlemen.


Played with similar rules to ordinary cricket in that there are a pair of batsmen and some fielders, a bowler and a ball.

However, the ball is fashioned from a small tin of Cheese Possessed wrapped in Black Nasty until it's more round, and a GS Shovel as the bat.


The Mk6 helmet, CS95 and NI Gloves substitute for whites and protective gear, and the game is played until scoff is ready, or the Badge appears and wants to know WTF you are doing.
