Oh bugger. I've got you mixed up with another member - serves me right for moving around the country so much!!! Sorry haha.

Dulwich are a decent choice though, friend of mine used to play in their 2s. Good set-up as can be expected from such a big club!

I live in Herne Hill, about a 10 minute walk from both Dulwich/Alleyn, then there's places like Streatham and Marlborough also nearby. Only question I'm wondering is where I'd get a game with those first two, plus membership at Dulwich is 200! Jesus.

@rickjames - you should have a chat with the Combe Down boys mate, they were a pleasant bunch and literally a stones throw from you (Cross Keys is a decent boozer for afterwards too!).

I am sure I played at Combe Down (near Bath) in my youth. Is it next to a rugby pitch?  One ground I definitely remember was Poplars between Trowbridge and Bath where on Sundays they employed a "6 and out" rule and you don't need to guess what idiot cleared the ropes the only time he batted there. Looked on Google Maps and the pub is there but doesn't look like the ground behind it is used for cricket anymore.

Yeah that's the one @Lumsden.

Poplars is still very much up and running! A teammate of mine plays for them every week - the 6 and out rule is still going strong haha

Saturday league season finished.

551 runs @ 50.09

15 wickets @ 18.67

I wanted 500 runs and 20 wickets, having to wicket keep for 3 games and missing 2 due to family events didn't help. Maybe next year...

Yes although I hope we play better than we did this afternoon.

Today started well enough as we posted 178 on a poor wicket and that should have been good enough but we were absolutely terrible in the field. Must have given away nearly 30 in misfields (I was guilty too) and dropped 2 absolute dollies. Also didn't help that I was given some naff information about the strength of the opposition batting so I had already bowled by the time their big hitter came into bat. Anyhow this guy whacked around 70 not out and the visitors won with just over 1 over spare although they crossed the line thanks to 4 overthrows which really summed up our fielding performance.

The good news is that forecast for next Saturday is fine so we are going to organise another friendly. May play next Sunday too.
