Neil Laughton - Cricket at the South Pole - January 2012

Neil Laughton, an ex-SAS officer, entrepreneur and adventurer, has just led the Memorial Scott Expedition to the South Pole where he played a commemorative cricket match on January 17th 2012. They used a roller to prepare the 'pitch' but the temperamental Antarctic outfield proved a tricky surface and an action-packed game ensued. Neil's "British & Commonwealth' team of adventurers took on the 'Norwegians & Rest of the World' adventurers and you'll be delighted to know that the Brits won by 2 wickets! It is exactly 100 years on from the heroic arrival of Captain Robert Falcon Scott at the South Pole on the 17th January 1912.
