Sat 29 September - Pinewood

Posted on 30th September, 2007

Many epics have been made at Pinewood. This was the one about the brave band of heroes, assembled at short notice from an unlikely cast of characters, that goes out and, against all the odds, gets slaughtered pointlessly.
It was 11 a.m. and a day of fluffy white clouds was forecast for Kent. Pat sat […]

Sat 22 September - Knockholt

Posted on 23rd September, 2007

One, two, Sree. That’s how elementary it got to be. Our late season visitor made it almost a one-man show: topping the batting, fielding sharply, bowling tidily and taking two outstanding catches, the first dismissing Knockholt’s top scorer at a point where they were threatening to mount a real challenge and the second sealing victory […]

Underriver proved to have a lively and varied attack but the opening partnership was […]

Sat 8 September - St Mary’s

Posted on 9th September, 2007

The morning’s low cloud had burnt off and a strong sun was moderated by a light breeze, giving us perfect cricketing conditions.
Shoreham batted first and James and John opened for us: one wore a bright pink cap and the other a cap of an equally brilliant blue, as if for easy identification in a training […]

Sat 1 September - 1st XI v Speldhurst

Posted on 3rd September, 2007

Play reggae music to James Asplin immediately before every game, but don’t let him bring cocktail sausages or ketchup into your car… Jack, James and I rolled into Speldhurst to be greeted by the news that we were unfortunately down to 10 men, and that we’d also lost the toss (shock!) and been put […]
