Got a win in with Firle over Glyndebourne in a game featuring many Christies, one captaining Firle and three for Glyndebourne.
We got put in on a damp pitch, batted five. First five balls went 0,2,2,0,6 with a solid hit from the B3 going straight over the bowler. Afterwards I sliced a couple over extra cover, going slightly hard with the ball not coming on fully, but was pulling and driving well generally, in position earlier but having to wait for the ball. We got 166 from our 35 overs, I retired on 52 from 38 balls with just under two overs left.
When we bowled, I kept for most of the innings as nobody else besides my brother could. Ran out one of the Christies with a direct hit when they tried to pinch a leg bye into the leg side. Bowled 3 overs, 0/11, then kept again at the end. Come the last over Glyndebourne needed 5, number 7 clipped it to T Christie at mid wicket, who threw it to me to run out I Christie (his nephew), given out by P Christie, brother of I.

Lost the toss and get put in. We made 218 off 40, scored an awful 3 before top edging one.

Started off well in the field and took a catch that was in the air for God knows how long, then had them two down before their opener and other blokes around him started taking ones and twos due to some sloppy fielding. They were 160 odd for 6 and looking comfortable when a cannon arm from yours truly ran out their opener on 62, from there the wickets started coming a bit more frequently. Got them all out and a 12 run win with two overs to spare. Great game, but one you hate being a part of. Their over rate was absolutely shocking as well, for a 13:30 start we didn't finished until 20:15!

Got a first ball duck :( but on the bright side we won.
We were struggling at 58/7 having being sent in on a hot day. 80 run partnership followed and we ended up at 169 all out.
Opposition was 3 down for not many and then they had a partnership. They were cruising with 4 wickets in hand and 11 runs to go. Then they decided to self destruct and lost the last 4 wickets for 3 runs. One of their players got 5 wickets and then hit a quick 60+ but unfortunately ended up on the losing side.

No idea why I said Id play tonight.

Anyway I left Belgium at 6 am this morning(5am UK time). Drove for 13hrs, with the tunnel to break up the drive in the middle.

Fetched my kit on the way through.

Got to game 10minites before the start.....


And hit the first ball of the game straight up in the air to mid on. What a day!!

Played as a ringer for a clubmates' work side tonight, very enjoyable. Extremely friendly but everything you'd want in a cricket game - nabbed a catch, runout, wicket and retirement with the bat, plus game went down to scores tied on the final ball... which was a wide. Good fun and valuable time in the middle at least 👍

9am this morning and I get a text stating we have a match tonight at Harewood House and the individual who is supposed to be running the midweek side had forgotten about it. Anyhow, we scraped together a team and I arrived at Harewood House at 6.20pm, see 4-5 of our players warming up so drop my bag off in the away changing room only discover it is inhabited by team of pathologists. It turns out not only did the midweek organiser forgot the match, he then informed us the game was away when it was actually at home. I'm afraid I just got back in the car and drove back to York.

I actually played a game! Was asked to open after fielding at one of the coldest grounds in my area. Scored 21 before being run out by my partner, though the game was in the bag by that point chasing 120 odd. Extras must have been 30/40, I couldn't hit most balls. Very happy- I batted well, played an important innings and we won! My Rob Pack is truly dead though, time to finally use my Kookaburra!

Had our first league game Saturday, we managed to put on 248 off 43.3 (standard hat-trick collapse from the bottom order to finish off the innings). Chipped in with 37 myself so not the worst start to the season.

Naturally we made it difficult for ourselves but still managed to come out with a 15 run win, tense few overs near the end but made for a good game.

At home tomorrow against bottom of the division.
Following last weeks helmet fiasco and my ignominious batting failure I've purchase an helmet which doesn't block my vision so no excuses if I fail to get a score.

Team lost today but I was fantastic ;)

We were 169 all out (I made 7*)

The opposition got it 5 down in 22 overs (with 23 overs to spare). I took 1-22 off 7 including removing their destructive opener. Sadly the damage was done as he'd already made 75 off 30 odd balls at that stage.

We won today!! Sent the oppo back for 104 in 38 overs. One guy made the luckiest 46 Ive ever seen, edges floating into gaps galor!!


In true hypocritical fashion. I then edged 16 of my first 26 runs through the slips.......

We knocked them off 2 down with 28 overs still left. I made a lucky 73 not out.
