It's 6.15 am and  I am on my way to hostpital going under the scalpel today to hopefully repair the damage  caused by the bouncer from one of the Worcester Academy guys that pushed the helmet grill into my nose.
Best of luck, hope the op goes well

Obviously the season has had its positives, finishing undefeated is a great feeling as we'll probably never manage it again but it's also been incredibly tedious at times. We've chased in all but 3 games with the highest target set being 172 - whilst winning is great it's not quite as exciting when you're chasing 120 every game! (Proper 1st world problem I know haha)

Trust me its not as tedious as chasing 250+ every week! congrats on the promotion!

Following yesterday's long day pleased to be back home after spending 40 minutes on the  operating table  and being awake throughout while the surgeon removed the infected tissue from under the skin which contained the foreign bodies off the helmet grill and then  stitched the skin from by my eyebrows to near the tip of the nose to form a flap and applied over 50 stitches to hold it in place.
This morning my face looks a right mess nose is painful and both eyes have limited vision due to swellings
Can't look down as the wound bleeds through the  stitches now i have to sit still and wait for everything to heal which should take around 6 weeks.

Got the news whilst at Lords on Thursday that we had hoped for, we managed to finish 3rd in B&D one with rumours of 3 going up. We missed out on 2nd spot due to Clevedon being the only team who managed to get a win in on an otherwise washed out weekend where we played top spot and divided the points between us with an abandonment.

We worked hard as a club and were well clear of 4th spot so pleased we get to move up a level and test ourselves. We were in the WEPL but effectively suffered a double relegation when they restructured the leagues which pushed us back down into div 1.

Were steiggling to hold onto our county academy players due to this as their coaches are telling them they need to be playing wepl cricket...having your talented players taken away at 16/17 makes it even harder to get back into those divisions to hold onto them!

Why do I bother.
Spend ages chasing round to get 11 players.
They all end up to be bowlers (although we got hit for 321 off 40 overs)

I then get triggered by a teammate. LBW off a ball that was never threatening the stumps.

Thanks for coming... 😡

Did I mention the bowlers in my side were all lower league players...
Oppo were fairly decent and took a liking to the buffet

Had an end of season game for Firle today. Before now my average for Firle in friendlies was touching 70. Not any more. Got sold up the river to be run out for 2, before going 0/24 off 5. Then kept 20 overs, took 2 catches standing up and a stumping, although the stumping was to be honest atrocious. Bat charged and missed it, ball came to me and I fumbled it twice before picking the ball up and stumping him at the third attempt... A win though, but not ideal prep for Aus with my game tomorrow cancelled. Tomorrow now being spent with the Ansty Ladies team as I have become their lucky mascot it seems.
