Sat 11 August - 1st XI v Kilndown & Lamberhurst

Posted on 15th August, 2007

The Shoreham 1st team were confident about their chances against K&L with most of our ‘Big Guns’ in the side this week. Unfortunately we were playing with one-man-down due to a late pull-out, but Ray assured us that he’d cover the extra ground by fielding for two. The toss seems a formality these […]

Sat 11 August - 2nd XI v Horsmonden II

Posted on 12th August, 2007

There has been some discussion regarding the structure of the Kent Village League recently and I should like to contribute what might at first seem like a radical suggestion but one that I think has real merit.
This week Shoreham, a club with landscape gardeners, bankers, ex-farmers, management consultants and others of even vaguer professions in […]

Sun 5 August - Buckhurst

Posted on 6th August, 2007

Shoreham C C. arrived on a sweltering Sunday afternoon at the picturesque Buckhurst ground, to be welcomed by Dan Setterfield taking full precautions in the heat by lavishly rubbing sun cream into his fiancé’s back. The next step was to take a look at the playing surface in the middle. We strolled out to a […]

A call to his wife releaved all anxiety as she confirmed he was on his way and had left […]

Posted on 5th August, 2007

At last, a perfect Summer’s day at the Paddock.
It was a good looking Shoreham team (well, you know what I mean) but we were a bit deflated to be reduced to 10 men by Alex’s late call up to the firsts. (This is always a problem for the lower sides in any club. Can […]

Ightham C.C. 174-8
Shoreham C.C. 1st XI 176-7
With a number of regular second XI players Shoreham took to the field after winning an important toss to face second in the league Ightham. On a damp unpredictable wicket Shoreham got off to the best possible start with J. Trick taking a wicket with only his second ball […]

Sun 29 July - Horton Kirby

Posted on 30th July, 2007

As another Sunday arrived so did a new era in Shoreham CC. After another lengthy process of selecting a new captain for the Sunday side, the newly appointed captain led his team out to a very young Horton Kirby side. The Shoreham Sunday team has seen many great captain it in the pasts; names such […]
