We had 12 players one game last year and skipper did not realise till 5 mins before game after warm up

Nah can top that - a Uni first XI game at Chester in 96 and they got through 40 overs in the field before we spotted that they had twelve men on there!

Same game, one of their lads chose to call our skipper something that might be getting John Terry in trouble.  Skipper came in off the fullest run I've ever seen and bowled near enough the speed of light - the lad, who was batting three, took the first on the lid, second on the breast and then threw his bat down and walked off!  :D

My first game at York Uni was for the 2nd team away at hull. We lost but I got 5 wickets, 5 catches and a golden duck on debut (mixed bag but a trend for my entire Uni career).

The village moment involved our skipper turning up worse for wear after a heavy night out and following through on a fart when he was waiting to bat. He sort of went pale then had to run off to find a loo. Ended up batting with less than clean whites.

What made it worse was the hull women's cricket team was on the sidelines with us and saw it all. Then about 5 weeks later we wondered why a load if girls were laughing near us at a home game and realised it was the same hull women's team and they'd recognised our skipper.

We were playing a sunday friendly and only ended up with 10 players. The 1st team game got rained off and when they arrived back one of them volunteered to play for us, he we was also next man in. He didn't have long to get changed by the time he arrived and then the wicket fell, so the number 3, who was still padded up went out to bat again.

i retrieved a ball which had been hit for four and tried to underarm it to someone on the infield... i held on a fraction too long and instead of the throw going to my teammate it went straight over my shoulder, over the fence behind me and in to a bunch of trees!

felt like a massive r-tard

new balls please

Quite a while ago, my first year at York was back in 96 so this would have been summer of 97. We were playing on a ground a few minutes walk from the Uni and away from any toilets. Think there were some tennis courts or something on the leg side as I remember thinking I'd smack the bowler into them first ball and it didn't quite turn out as I hoped.

Yep, I played in the 2nd team roses three times. 97 at York, 98 at Lancaster and then 99 at York again. Think they followed the usual pattern and the home team won each time.

I think I got a few wickets each time, I also remember being involved in a bowl off indoors in a BUSA game one year indoors at Lancaster which we lost.

2nd Team 96, 1st Team 97.  98 was the year I did my knee ligaments and I spent most of it doing the radio stations outside broadcast

Doesn't sound like we'd have played against each other. Roses games were great and the weekend altogether was a good laugh, I did a 4 year masters and I was gutted to have to miss roses in the last year due to glandular fever.

One of your other posts mentions you were in the lancs league as a junior. Where did you used to play? I was in the lancs league juniors til age 15 with Darwen.
