v Aldbourne Sun 10 September 2017 (Win)

Hello and Thank you,

Here already, the final game of the season and after a delay of 21/2 hours for drizzle a shorter overs version of the game got underway.
Bating first Aldbourne scored 134 for 7 off their 25 overs. 9 bowlers were used with five of them taking a wicket, the best being 1 for 2 from Angus. Rob L did take a brilliant( or lucky) catch and Dave managed to put two down. Our response did not get off to a best of starts, with Andrew out for nought after 3 balls and Wes following him for nought in the third over. Rob W held the innings together, carrying his bat for 67* ( his fifty off 61 balls in 69 mins). Ablely supported by knocks from Fiz of 27 and Dave 23*, Rob W had the final say, hitting the winning runs with a four to win the game with 7 balls to spare.

Another season over, but for those interested in playing or just watching, the indoor cricket starts in October. Fixtures will be circulated when they are available and with plans for an end of season/Christmas get together and next season cricket tour being put together, it just remains for me to say ;
THANK YOU
A thank you to those, that helped on the maintenance of the pavilion and ground, to those that helped on the pitch preparation, to those who helped  to get the gear out, to those that helped put the gear away, to those who obtained water for the matches, to those who provided teas, to those who laid the teas out, to those who washed up afterwards, to those who contributed towards match balls, to those who made donations, to those that turned up to play, to those that organised the teams, to those that ran the club, to those that supported the club and to those I have forgotten to mention above. Thank you all for the season just gone.

Indoor League update

Approaching the half way point of the season and although we got off to a good start by winning the first two games, we have subsequently slipped down the table, following four defeats.

We also lost our cup game, so our only hope of silverware will now be the Shield competition.

Away versus Cheesewring CC 31st July 14:00

Following our disappointment last week when the opposition failed to raise a team we are in the same position this week.  After late withdrawals and lack of response to phone calls etc,  we find ourselves still needing 3 players for our match at Upton Cross on Sunday.

If anyone reading this wishes to play, or indeed knows someone else who may like a game, please don’t hesitate to give me a ring on  07812 609512.

It is disappointing and annoying being let down by an opposition, when we have a home game and people have given up their free time to prepare the ground, make the teas etc.

It is not a position I want to be in personally or as the representative of our cricket club. However unfortunately I will be, and we will be ones to let the opposition down this week.

Thanks Andrew

 

 

The New Inn

Fans of The New Inn maybe disappointed, it has recently been refurbished to include a roof terrace, a very neutral colour scheme and parque flooring.

The traditional boozer styling has gone, along with ale casks behind the bar and nearly all of the pub games.

However the toilets have been greatly improved and have benefitted from a bright selection of glossy tiles.
