Brighton club is granted home fixture against the Vatican

The Brighton-based St Peters CC have confirmed a fixture to play the 'other' St Peter's club in September, better known as the Vatican.

When the Vatican announced they were forming a cricket team last October, St Peters contacted Rome to offer a game. Their invitation was accepted much to their surprise, and the game will be used as a warm-up for the Vatican's match against an Anglican churches team, an inter-faith challenge at the Canterbury county ground on 19 September.
