We found some in the pavilion after the game, they didn't offer us it though.

I made a huge divot with my front foot bowling spin, nearly slipped on it several times.

Any other day we wouldn't have gone back out there

Finished my Saturday season today with what i think was my best bowling performance all season.

They batted first and we let them off the hook to post 153 on a stupid wicket (see below)
Personally bowled 10 overs straight through 2-19.

We were chasing something like 124 from 35 overs after a rain delay. Came 20 or so short. I got a duck. First ball i fended off my throat that skidded through, next one near enough the same spot bowled me half-way up off-stump as i moved on my back foot ready to duck. To make things worse i was given a send off by an idiot at mid-on who for some reason hates my sunday club ( two of their first teamers joined my sunday club's first team so for some reason they hate us)

Here is said pitch. This was at the start of our innings after tea. It got even worse to the point that i batted so far out of my crease so i didn't slip over. Both captains wanted to play on because it was our last game, silly decision.

As it was the last game the square will presumably be going to bed for the winter now. It probably won't be that bad once the whole square has been scarified, cut, slit and whatever else you do at the end of the season. Come next season it will be fine.

The oppo today were already down and many of them decided to go to T20 finals day, their second team players were kept in the second team to push for promotion leaving us to play against some of the youngest 1st team players and older blokes from the 3rds. They turned up with 7 and a scorer....

I feel sorry for the guys asked to play against us today, nothing against those blokes at all and they were all very apologetic. It's embarrassing from the club though, particularly the senior members/committee.

All out for 39 in 13 overs, we chased it none down in 4 overs, had tea, couple of pints then watched our clubs football team kickoff at 2. I sort of feel robbed of a day of sport.

Same oppo next week......

Credit to the same oppo this week who did everything you'd expect in order to get the game on during multiple rain delays, could have easily dragged their heels or started to sow the seeds of doubt with umpires about dangerous run ups and risk of bowlers slipping etc.

We managed to chase a rain revised target of 98 and take maximum points, second place were rained off so we have won the league! Just 2 defeats all season, planning to finish the season next week in style with a big win and even bigger party.

Most of last weeks comments were out of frustration and a feeling like we didn't have a game at all, I hate it when there's nothing to do on a Saturday!

Stupid rain effected day yesterday, 1 team definitely down, next 4 teams playing each other including us. Our game never got started, umpires never even looked like they wanted to play but captains gave it all the chances possible and their lads did their best to get the ground ready but by 2:30 (12:30 start) it just wasn't going to happen so it got abandoned. The other game was only about 4 miles away but they somehow got a game in and of course the winners bagged full points but the loosens managed a load of bonus points which puts us in the drop zone with one game left against no2 in the league who need a win to guarantee promotion (who this week had the top team 17/8 until their game got abandoned.

On the plus note we went back to find a ones playing, managing to bowl the oppo out for 30 (after 25 overs) and then knock them off (all be it for 4 from aabout 10 overs)... final few run were scored in pretty heavy rain.. which then stayed in for the rest of the day...

Really is a big game for our 2's next week. Selection will be interesting.

Super game yesterday's at whitgiftians cc-which my team mate says is Jason Roy's old club(I don't think it was myself) we played an old fashioned 'time' game
They batted first and got 191 in 44 overs that left us about 30 overs to finish at 7pm. Slightly confused by the whole thing we managed to knock them off in 28 overs and a little 56 no for myself as a couple of our guys really put bat to ball

Lovely ground if anyone knows this club , traffic thru Croydon and tooting was a nightmare but that's London for ya  :)

Last games next weekend at little marlow and Harpesden. Then it's a long long closed season.

We played on this today



Got worse as light rain started to fall. Lost the toss and got put in, also agreed to a 30 over game. Came in at #6 and scored 9, ball that just bounced up out of nowhere, attempted pull shot flies onto my chest and then the keeper dives behind. Pah.

They were nowhere near, bowled them all out in the final over when they were 40 odd short.

Played the final game of the seconds season yesterday. Needed a win to cement third place. Track was awful, all the grass was dead and it was really soft. We put the opposition in and they got 158 off 45 overs 5 or 6 down. We knocked it off 2 down in about 28 overs, myself and @hilly_2015 both being not out on 38 & 33 respectively.

Good end to a good first season with a new club

What @JB neglects to mention is that he made me run four 3's in a row. The call to the boundary for oxygen fell on deaf ears. Think he needs a new H4L Custom from @H4Ladam to help him get it past that boundary!

Played friendly in fairly unpleasant wet conditions yesterday. Batted first and were 12-4. Came in on a hat-trick ball, saw it off and cut my next ball for 4. Spent the rest of the innings nudging and watching our 1st team batter smack a hundred. We put on 115 before i holed out and we eventually finished on 203-7 off 40. To be honest the oppo didn't help themselves. Bowled an offie and left arm around seamer to a very short wind assisted leg boundary. In wet conditions their ball management wasn't great and after a few overs they simply couldn't control it. They never got close, even with a bowling attach consisting of one 65 year old and 4 lads under 16. We managed the ball better and bowl in better areas on a damp track. Bowled out for 117.

I thought it would've been good exercise to run @hilly_2015!! It was quite amusing when you shouted 'dear me' when I called you back for the final third run!!  :D

End of Season Dinner last Saturday Night.

Very good evening - Ending up Winning the Bowling Trophy - 2nd team players player (even though I played more 1st xi games) and Clubman of the year.

A rather emotional night.
