Well that is us finished for season. Our 2s under my stewardship finished second despite only losing one game (the only one I missed). Unfortunately a tie and a voided game cost us the title but we still got promoted and also reached the cup final. Our 3s won the double, 1s will finish 2nd or 3rd and newly formed 4s will finish top 4. So all in all an excellent season although weather in August could have been better! Will miss selection committee meetings and what's app group ramblings. I wonder how many days it is still til 2018 season?

Golden duck today. Got a golden there last season too. Only a friendly and we're playing 8 a side 20/20 but we were bowled out for less than 40 chasing 110.
Woeful end to the season but a good season overall.

Due to play a Sunday 40 over final today at our ground, oppo who are EAPL premier league side argued they should host as biggger ground, facilities etc ended up calling it off 90mins before due to start so that's season finished over for us.

Ended up 13 games across the season 584 runs at 49.86 per innings with 2 Hundreds so not a bad season with the bat.

Good going with the bat mate 👍🏼

Ended a pretty poor season by my standards today. Played a friendly for Firle vs Brighton Exiles, with our opener belting a 24 ball 54 retired. I batted five, smacked my third ball for four and then off the change bowler walked up the wicket and creamed it to mid wicket for 8. Ended up keeping as we had plenty of bowling, got a run out first over (we let the guy stay in as he hadn't faced a ball) and also a catch standing up to a left arm wrist spinner - first catch standing up since I kept for club u14s in indoor league nine years ago! Ended up winning by 100.

Only 39 league runs and 15 wickets for Chalfont St Giles in my last season there. So many missed chances that I could have had double easily, but despite feeling good in the middle I never got a chance. Took a few catches, probably 3-5 in the league but I'm not sure, and two run outs.

Looking forward to the new challenges coming my way with Ansty/Firle whichever I decide to play at next season, most likely Ansty. I will miss the Chalfont lads, but it's time for me to move on as I need to challenge myself and the chilterns league is so mixed that I can't do that and kick on properly.

Last game of the season today
Home friendly game at Britwell Salome
Beautiful day here,
Hopefully I can finish the season with a decent knock


Cracking game against a lovely bunch of blokes
We fielded first, bowled them out for 135 and knocked em off , just

I bowled a few, got one for a few, and scored 30ish.

Season over now, I've enjoyed playing at two new clubs and look forward to whatever next season brings

We finished the season nicely yesterday. We played 2nd in the league and we were 3rd, winner would be league runner up, with possibility of promotion (top 2 usually go up but they are restructuring leagues this year so may only be top team).

We put out weaker than usual team, I wasn't planning to play but skip was really short on bowling so changed my plans - glad I did.

Weather was great and pitch a little damp and green. Put them in and made a great start with 6 wickets down for 45 in first 12 overs, including 4 for me. They recovered slightly with 8-10 adding some runs (after I was taken off bowling  ;) ) and ended up 96 ao. Our fielding was probably the best all season, took 8 catches and only put 1 down - the skipper off my bowling (3rd time he has done that this season).

We made a steady start in response, losing wickets every so often but knocked it off with 4 down, so didn't get a bat.

So we end up 2nd and overall a pretty decent season for the team. I managed to play 8 games with 19 wickets at an average of 13.5.

Eurgh.

Last game, at home. Oppo elect to bat on a green one, post 153-8 after 40 which is well below par. Get asked to bat #5, find myself in after 3 overs when we're 6-3.  Tried to just see the opening bowlers out but got bowled for 7. Not that I ever bat high normally but trying to be in a position to consolidate isn't easy when the ball was keeping as low as it did. We were all out, 29 short.

Time to do nothing for six months, although I'm desperate to get better so might do some of those adult coaching sessions at the Oval

Had our end of season awards dinner last night. Was great to win Sat 1st batsmen of the year award for 2nd year running and also to avoid the duck trophy (only 1 this season) great to see all captains award various players so not just the same 2/3 and lots of awards to some of our younger players.

Only 24 weekends till we get underway again!

Finished off with a Sunday friendly with the Ashorne lads. Organisation was a shambles as the skipper/vc were on the way back from a stag weekend and they were still en route by the start of play. We had to bat first were 0-2 off 2 overs of a 30 over game. Things improved but we scraped up an average 143-9 off 30. I marshalled the tail at the end to nudge 14*. We decided to give everyone a bowl, probably not the greatest idea when you've only got 140. We took a couple of early wickets before their best 2 batsman feasted on some non bowler pies. When they were both eventually out they only  needed 20 off 8 with 6 wickets in hand. We started to take it seriously and ended up winning by 2 runs. Finished off with 6-2-13-3, got into a really good rhythm and turned a few. Shame the season has to finish.

@Northern monkey, wish I had seen this Sunday morning, I would have come over and watched.  Would be great to see you smash the ball straight into the gardens.

Finished my season having played for 5 different clubs, in 4 different divisions, mainly thanks to the OCA player pool.  Managed to average a disappointing 21.  Batted well in most games but kept getting out in the twenties.  As a whole I did not enjoy cricket at all, it was a season of to many injuries, missing games because of Art exhibitions and being forced to move back to my old club after a period of excessive emotional blackmail (I hated every minute of the 5 games I played for them).

Roll on 2018.  I just hope I can get my knee fit for it, and then find a club that needs a fat pie chucker.
