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 […]

Sat 24 May - 2nd XI v Leigh II

Posted on 25th May, 2008

This year both teams were agreed that the game was to be played at Shoreham’s ground. (See last year’s match report for details of that little misunderstanding). Just as last year, it was Chris’s turn to provide the tea and it was some relief to see that he had not thriftily saved last year’s unused […]

Sat 17 May - 2nd XI v Limpsfield Chart II

Posted on 20th May, 2008

Shoreham having won the toss inserted the home side who’s openers soon set about the Shoreham attack with Darren Fletcher going for 48 off 7 and sims 29 off 6 with Harrison (61) and Pricket (99). The introduction of Ray […]

Sat 10 May - 2nd XI v Southborough II

Posted on 12th May, 2008

Southborough won the toss and elected to bat. They lost their opener Hart in the first over, Youry came to the crease and joined G. Brown with Brown scoring 76 and Youry 67 before both being bowled by Montgomery. Ater this they lost wickets steadily with Peck picking up 3 for 23 off 5, posting […]

Sat 25 August - 2nd XI v Otford II

Posted on 26th August, 2007

Waste paper basket full, ash tray overflowing, scotch gone, sun slowly rising. Must find the positives in this performance soon.
There were several positives to take from this local derby:
• The weather was better than it has been recently.
• Nevertheless those who forgot to put on sun screen did not suffer prolonged exposure to […]
