I saw a person (pretty sure it wasn't you) wearing a hooded sweatshirt with a Chingford badge and Nike logo on. They were a few miles away from Chingford.
If this was on Saturday, I think I know who it is.

A few additions to the kit bag.



Still have to get to the nets to see which ones I'll be using. Left to right.

B3 Beluga - Been using this for a while. Ideal to warm up in the nets with and goes well in the middle too.
Mongoose Torque - Bought cheap, was delaminated but has been repaired and seems to go well while tapping up.
GM Icon - Again cheap, shoulder damage repaired. Taps up well.
Unstickered Keeley Superior - Picked up from them at the end of last season. Asked for the best performing ugly bat and they dug around and came up with this. Best ping of the lot.
GN Powerbow Atomic - Cheap fleabay, had edge damage, now repaired, still needs playing in.
Affinity Toro - Very nearly 2,16 but picks up very well. For 'ships' and giggles.

With me living in Holland and our team colours being blue I couldn't resist these end of season bargain Puma's. With me having Puma's before I ordered the mids in the same size but they are very tight so I ordered the other ones in a size bigger. Thin socks for the mids and horizon socks for the other.

Keeley works and superior gloves. Not much difference between them. Nothing visual or on feel that you'd say one was more expensive than the other.





Keeley pro duffle. I believe last year I picked up the last one.



B3 three stripe I picked up from here. I owe a bat to a teammate so he has the choice of this or the Aldred. Nothing wrong with either, they're just what he picked out.



Three bats I picked up for the team kit bag. Still in the UK so I haven't seen them in person yet. The Red Back might just end up in my bag.

Kit for this season sees no changes from last year tbh.
Bats are both G3 with the yellow grip one being the first bat I ever made, luckily it was a bit of a lump as its been refined over the years and gone from 2.12 to 2.9 in that time. Now going into its 5th season and has over 2500 runs to her name.
The other I made at the start of last year as the original has had quite a few repairs but its still hanging in there but is ready to step in now having been a net bat since its creation. Both bats are 1/2 inch shorter blade, longer handle set up

Pads are the initial sample set from when I first got softs made so this will be their 3rd season.
Gloves are the sausage style and will need replacing at some point this season, however the WRX pittards wears a lot better than the English pittards iv used in many other gloves.
Wicket keeping kit just in case but I hardly keep these days
Duffle is the original sample bag again - new for 2023 model is a wheelie duffle but other then that same design

Extras are aero P2s, masuri club TI lid and somewhere are my old SL22 spikes which really do need replacing but are so comfortable.

A mix of new and old this year!

Bats - 2 Keeleys , a Superior with WORX stickers, and a WORX with Superior ones. Just what I fancied at the time I picked up the bats from the Keeley factory.
       - The GN is the one I got from the GN off cut lottery!

Softs - Im really pleased with the DKP Pro softs. Really comfy and a decent price.

Bag - SS is our kit provider, so got a club crest put on one of their Pro Elite Duffles in the sale. Its a really nice bag - plenty of space in the separate bat cave, as opposed to my old GN Prestige.

Helmet - my trusty old Frankenhelmet! Its a GM with a Slazenger grill that I adjusted/re drilled so I can see properly. Ill be gutted when it finally dies.

Protection - P2 strippers and an Ayrtek D30 arm guard. Love them both.

Match bats for 2023 although in reality there is one too many as the Legend was an unplanned addition but an opportunity that couldn't be refused (more on that later). So may move on the Maax.

Gray-Nicolls Ultimate Original Pro Performance 2lb 11oz , oiled and knocked in

Gray-Nicolls Legend 2lb 9oz

Gray-Nicolls Blue Maax 2lb 12oz, oiled

Some lovely kit posted above!

I have a few things to share once the rain has stopped! I have the best kit I've ever had this season, and I've been slowly training myself up to eventually join a club. I'm probably the only/one of very, very few trans cricketers in the USA, and finding an accepting club where I am going to feel safe and accepted in a scary moment is pretty challenging.

Anyway, I hope to find a club soon.

howdy y'all! Still no club but I've been hitting some balls around.

I know I'm taking the worst pics ever for the forum, I'm sorry!

Here are our three bats - the Salamander from when Willostix were cool, a Kookaburra Bubble Pro 1.0, and a H4L Pro in the Players Profile (and the super cool pink stickers). These are my weapons for hitting my way out of depression.  :)

The Bubble was sourced from the US on special offer, and it is absolutely outstanding. It has a big profile and a really powerful middle, and I think it looks great too. I'll put an antiscuff on it soon because I love it so much. It feels pretty light - I think it was supposed to be 2 8 or 2 9, but I've never weighed it. Really good pick up.

The H4L is a new addition to the family, and it is so interesting. The players profile is great, and really forgiving. It is well suited for my technique, which is pretty classical. I've no idea what it weighs, but it has a light pick-up and it has plenty of power so I don't care. It is the pingiest bat I've ever had and I don't regret it at all. I'm still playing it in a bit too.

I also have a load of H4L stuff - pro elite pads, gloves, the wheelie duffle, bat cover, hat, and then all kinds of @Ayrtek Cricket stash too - hybrid sweatband, hat, socks and so on. I assume you don't want to see pics of all that?
I'm really excited to find a club... I'll probably just start training over the winter nets at this point. I just want to see if I'm actually any good against real players because right now I feel like prime Ian Bell, and that can't be right.

I want to thank @Ayrtek Cricket / @The Cricket Boutique for sorting all this out at a very agreeable price! He even very kindly put some prawn cocktail crisps in there, saving me from the tyranny of American snacks (but not for long, because they lasted 10 minutes). Thank you, mate!

It should all keep me going for a long time.
