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.

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.
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.
Rear (l to r): Chris Burton, Richard Elmer, Mathew Elmer, Robert De Viell (Scorer), Graham Wills, Angus Gourlay, Ben Hutson
Front (l to r): Michael (Micky) Gray, Andrew Ware, Adam Dabbs, Robert Lock, Robert Way, Sylvan Pook
We very impressively took the most wickets and lost the fewest, and finished In a creditable 3rd place and therefore just avoided promotion.
Despite a disappointing cup run we reached the quarter finals of the shield but lost to the Division 2 winners, again.
