Sat 19 July - 2nd XI v Limpsfield Chart II

Posted on 22nd July, 2008

Limpsfield Chart had already got the better of us this season but we were feeling confident as we fielded one of the best 2nd XI sides of this season. Our confidence didn’t falter as Limpsfield Chart won the toss and decided to bat.
Montgomerie and Sims opened the bowling attack and kept the visitors contained bowling […]

Sat 12 July - 2nd XI v Southborough II

Posted on 13th July, 2008

Until Saturday I thought of Southborough merely as an obstruction on the road to Tunbridge Wells but now I know that it is also a place where people live and play cricket. Rather well actually (the cricket I mean, the rest I don’t know about). I had to say that bit about the cricket, firstly […]

Sat 28 June - 2nd XI v Flimwell II

Posted on 1st July, 2008

Shoreham won the toss and elected to bat against the team who had picked up the most bowling points so far this season. The old stalwarts of R.C. Trick (10) and P. Styles (32) opened the batting against some good bowling from the home team with the demise of Trick with the score on 22, […]

Sat 21 June - 2nd XI v Four Elms II

Posted on 23rd June, 2008

Apologies for match report, no Wyn this week, so if you are not a fan of watching paint dry, switch off now!
Another good week end for Shoreham CC lst and 2nd’s winning again, congrats Sree.
The seconds won the toss, decided to field with Brad getting into his usual mode of bowling a decent line, well […]

Sat 14 June - 2nd XI v St Lawrence II

Posted on 17th June, 2008

For this mid-table clash we fielded a strong-looking batting line up. The bowling was strengthened by Graham’s return (the new nail varnish is not completely dry yet but he was determined to play), but weakened by the continued absence of the Plumstead Pensioner.
I have been reading about the program of post office closures and, […]

Sat 7 June - 2nd XI v Withyham

Posted on 9th June, 2008

It was every schoolboy’s dream. (No not that one). Like turning up at the Arms Park with your boots, just in case, and being tapped on the shoulder as you go through the turnstile and hearing the Welsh coach say ‘Gareth’s not fit. We’d like you to take his place.’ On the morning of […]

Sat 31 May - 2nd XI v Halstead II

Posted on 2nd June, 2008

Following the first team’s exploits last week, we knew that the way to defeat Halstead was to allow them to amass a large total and then to outscore them. Half the plan worked well.
Cunningly disguising our intentions, Brad Simms and Dave Fletcher kept Halstead on a short leash by bowling a tight line, and […]
