Benno the Dreamcatcher

Ibiza Cricket Club stalwart and all round nice bloke Dave ‘Benno’ Bennett achieved legendary status yesterday after he was captured on Live TV catching the cricket ball in the stands of the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua whilst watching the West Indies v England One Day International. 

Ben Stokes unleashed a huge 6 and as the camera panned to the crowd a tanned man with a Notts CC shirt, an old Ibiza CC cap and huge gleaming smile pouched the ball with pure theatrical nonchalance. 

The crowd went mad and most of Nottingham and San Antonio looked on in amazement as our very own Benno with his glamorous wife Pam sat next to him took a catch better than any in his long and distinguished Ibiza Cricket Club career.

If only she knew
Always the showman Benno doffed his cap to the adoring crowd and received plaudits from all around including the Sky Sports commentators who pronounced “Well done Sir”. 

Within minutes social media went mad with memes popping up all over the place, his proud son Tom who has recently moved to the USA said with suitable understatement “Well done Dad”.
