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.

The weekends were great - though most of the stories would not be ones I could repeat here.  You slightly misread my earlier post (not helped by my missing an s on the end of leagues!) - I played for Lancaster in the Northern League in 1996 and 97; my junior cricket was all in Yorkshire.

Heres the scorecard... for some reason it has all the wrong names in it and I've gone down as "Malkeet Dhaliwal"  which is annoying as I also clean bowled Will Vanderspar this game haha ???

Sounds like a bit of a hero to me. We were struggling for a tea lady (she was away on holiday) before the Mrs and sister in law stepped in because I suggested ordering a few pizzas

Most village thing Ive seen in all cricket- a village umpire who called wide after the batsman had played a cut shot for four... He then followed his decision by calling 'over', after calling the previous ball a wide!

Most village thing in the league- A WEPL (west of england premier league) umpire who signalled 'byes' after the ball had ballooned of the batsmans pad and looped over the keepers head...

Most village thing I've seen? Umpire calling one short on a single..
Yeah, work that one out.

You do see the wide then over given a few times actually.
Also getting out in the 7th ball of an over. Happened to 2 of our blokes this year.

Didn't technically see this one, but heard about it from our Third XI a couple of years back - batsman kicks the ball away off middle stump, and his team mate gives him out.  He walks down the wicket aggresively, shouting "It can't be LBW you idiot, I didn't play a shot!"

Red trainers, blue tracksuit bottoms and a long sleeved white under top with nothing over it. Enough said!
