AN ESTATE agent was dubbed Andrew 'Flintoff' Farron despite losing a charity cricket match organised by Weston businesses.

It is hoped the event, held at Weston Cricket Club for the last seven years, has raised more than �2,000 for Weston Hospicecare.

Andrew, of Farron's Estate Agents, raced home from a holiday in Wales to compete with his 12-strong team the Weston Warriors with colleague Chris Bloxham, of Bloxham and Barlow, only to be beaten by rivals The Glimstead Gladiators.

Man of the match Andrew said: "As always it's not the winning that matters, it's the taking part.
