The sun came out in full force as the Eric Clapton XI took on the Bunbury celebrity cricket team in a star-studded charity match at Cranleigh School.

The legendary musician was joined by former Rolling Stone bassist Bill Wyman, Genesis guitarist Mike Rutherford, Pink Floyd's Roger Waters and TV personality Piers Morgan, among others, as celebrities mixed it up with cricket legends such as Allan Lamb, Phil Tufnell and current Surrey star Mark Ramprakash.

The Bunburys ran out victors and the event raised around 50,000 for Guildford-based children's charity CHASE, Cranleigh's Longacre School and Eric Clapton's Crossroads charity.
