David died aged 79 last year.
The memorial match between a David Gibbs Memorial X1 and a Presidents X1 took place at the club on Station Road.
Members of the local community turned out to honour David.
One person said: “Brilliant to see everyone and be back on the cricket field that I grew up on and loved so dearly.”
“Well done to everyone for organising such a great event.”
Another said: “David would’ve loved it.”
