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 […]

Sat 24 May - 1st XI v Halstead

Posted on 26th May, 2008

At the tea interval Shoreham looked under the cosh after Halstead’s innings finished on 273-4.
Earlier in the afternoon Captain Trick’s record of reliability as a tosser at the start of proceedings meant that he barely hesitated before inserting the home side; and, coming down the hill with a stiff cross-wind, he sent down some menacing […]

Sat 17 May - 1st XI v Sissinghurst II

Posted on 20th May, 2008

Shoreham won the toss and inserted Sissinghurst II on a rainy day. Sissinghurst found runs hard to come by early on with J Trick (36-2) and J Dinnis (31-3) bowling a tight line. It wasn’t until C. Jenkins (48) joined S. Kelly (61) that the Sissinghurst innings started to gain momentum, S. Brown chipped in […]
