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 […]

Sat 18 August - 2nd XI v Leigh II

Posted on 19th August, 2007

No-one should fail to (try and) join a Shoreham convoy. The afternoon starts here: missed turnings, misdirections, frantic car to car mobile conversations. Put it this way: if the invasion of Iraq had been left to us it would have saved everyone an awful lot of trouble. “We’re in Syria, where are you?” “Still on […]

Sat 11 August - 2nd XI v Horsmonden II

Posted on 12th August, 2007

There has been some discussion regarding the structure of the Kent Village League recently and I should like to contribute what might at first seem like a radical suggestion but one that I think has real merit.
This week Shoreham, a club with landscape gardeners, bankers, ex-farmers, management consultants and others of even vaguer professions in […]

Sat 4 August - 2nd XI v St Lawrence II

Posted on 5th August, 2007

At last, a perfect Summer’s day at the Paddock.
It was a good looking Shoreham team (well, you know what I mean) but we were a bit deflated to be reduced to 10 men by Alex’s late call up to the firsts. (This is always a problem for the lower sides in any club. Can […]

Sat 21st July - 2nd XI v Plaxtol II

Posted on 22nd July, 2007

After the downpours of Friday and Saturday mornings the going was good to soft at Shoreham Paddock.
Invited to race first, Loadsa Style started from stall 1 with Beamish Boy in stall 2. It was Beamish Boy who set a good early pace. At this point the much fancied and very consistent Plumstead […]

Sat 14 July - 2nd XI v Bidborough II

Posted on 15th July, 2007

Shoreham’s journey to Bidborough was uneventful.
For this fixture against top-of-the-league opposition we fielded an impressive looking XI bolstered by the presence of Paul Styles, Rob Marsden and Danny Thomas (our overseas player from Cudham). Of the three probably only Danny was in the peak of condition: Paul was nursing recently cracked ribs after high diving […]

Sat 7 July - 2nd XI v Limpsfield Chart II

Posted on 8th July, 2007

The Shoreham convoy was scattered on its way to Limpsfield Chart, which turned out not to matter as the lead vehicle went to the wrong club anyway. This became clear when two other captains were seen tossing up out in the middle. “No this is Limpsfield” was said with the air of people who have […]
