Sat 12 July - 1st XI v Chevening

Posted on 14th July, 2008

When Shoreham faced Chevening two months ago, in the first game of the season, we had a very tight contest that went down to the final over.  Second time around, and on the back of nine successive victories, we were feeling confident; although Chevening had won their last three matches as well, and were hoping […]

Sat 5 July - 1st XI v Weald

Posted on 6th July, 2008

The match we’d all been waiting for had finally arrived: Shoreham Brackets Kent CC versus Weald CC. The big clash between the top two teams in Division 3 of the Kent County Village League. Our last game of the first half of the 2008 season was always going to be a tense affair.
Shoreham […]

Sat 28 June - 1st XI v Kemsing

Posted on 30th June, 2008

The Shoreham 1st team came into their latest match with 7 wins from 7 games under their elasticated belts.  The sun was shining down as we took to the field after (naturally) winning the toss again.  James Trick decided that he needed to digest his lunch a little longer, and handed the ball to Ed […]

Sat 21 June - 1st XI v Kilndown & Lamberhurst

Posted on 23rd June, 2008

K&L won the toss and chose to bowl with the new ball on a damp wicket.  After our comprehensive victory against Bidborough II the week before (where we didn’t lose a wicket), the Shoreham batsmen were looking forward to the opportunity to really get some runs.  Opener from the week before, Sree Kokkiligadda, started out […]

Sat 14 June - 1st XI v Bidborough II

Posted on 16th June, 2008

Bidborough’s ground is perched on the side of a slope, at the bottom of which is their pavilion. Shoreham won the toss and decided to bowl as usual. Unusually though, James Trick withheld himself from the opening attack; giving the pleasure of the new ball to Ed Walker and John Dinnis instead. […]

Sat 7 June - 1st XI v Knockholt

Posted on 9th June, 2008

The latest visitors to Fortress Shoreham were third in the league Knockholt on Saturday. We had a strong looking lineup with one new face - Ritesh Chouhan - who was to prove himself with the ball and, later, just have enough time to hit a crisp six down the ground to finish the game… […]

Sat 31 May - 1st XI v Speldhurst

Posted on 6th June, 2008

With all the rain we’ve had, the wicket last Saturday was pretty spongy (technical term) so everyone wanted to bowl first.  Unfortunately the coin didn’t quite land properly so we were thrown into bat.  Nevertheless, spirits were high after the 1sts incredible win the week before - thanks to Andy’s big hitting - so those […]
