Thank f*** that's over with. Probably my worst ever season playing. Certainly 2nd half of the season could not have gone worse. Could easily pack it in now

Best described as 'Yardy darts' - no room, nagging length you cant quite drive & on you quicker than you think

Thanks a lot for the kind words mate - nice to have a trot out with you yesterday :)

I think the key to this season has been that GM Neon I got off you - just feel so comfortable using it. Might have to invest in another one over the winter as it's heir apparent ;)

With the season now over following  promotion in 2017 the club finished 5th.
Thier were 3 winnable games against the teams  that finished in the bottom 3 which were lost to the weather without a ball being bowled plus 2 more abandoned when we were closing in on a win at home we beat the teams that finished first and second and  with 8 players lost by 27 runs to the team that finished third.
Could the club have achieved more than 7 wins from the 14 played  only if we could have put 11 on the pitch each match as games were lost when fielding ( played one game away against the league winners with just 7 players ).
Also for most of the season the club played 3 12year olds who dispite finding senior cricket hard did well with both bat and ball taking around 30 wickets between them hope they come back next season.
On a personal note had 11 innings 4 good knocks and four failures no excuses but at times facing the new ball on our uncovered wicket  was a nightmare.
Roll on season 2019.

You had 5 league games cancelled or abandoned on the hottest, driest summer in living memory? How? Where do you play, the Shetlands?


Of the 78 scheduled games this year for either of my two clubs, only two were rained off. None of our Saturday league games were weather affected at all.

You're either very unlucky or have people in positions of responsibility who are a bit soft. #getthegameon.

Can you not shorten games if there is a forecast of rain? We can go all the way down to a T20 if necessary.

To be fair Alan's side regularly play with 9, so can't imagine its through lack of want to get the game on!  :D

First game in Aus done, playing on the only turf wicket in the town. Bowled first, skittles oppo for 79. Got 3/18 off 8.5, one caught slip, one lbw and one bowled. We chased it 2 down. On the beers already, getting familiar with Hahn 3.5 beer.

Two wins from two now. 10/1/34/2, decent considering I went for 9 first over. Oppo 133 all out, we chased 5 down. Caught for 5, slicing a drive that I didn't get my foot across to from a left arm over bowler.

Played my last competitive cricket of the year on Saturday. Finished off our Uni Indoor season with 4 wins from 7 which is the best return in the club's history! We won 3 from 3 on Saturday after starting with 1 from 4 in the two previous weeks. Last Sunday saw us get battered by Sheffield, but considering they have a membership base 5 or 6 times bigger than ours, it wasn't exactly unexpected (We have about 17 members all told, they have 90 odd and turn people away i hear)

On Saturday we knocked off 123 off the last ball of the game against Sheffield 2's, before cleaning up Hull for 60 odd and chasing it none down, before beating Bradford inside 8 overs after they posted 80. Was a seriously good day and after 2 years of being slapped senseless it was nice to finish with a positive record!

The only negative was one of our players turning up 35 minutes late to the bus, and as a result we left him out of the first game. We then decided we couldn't change a winning team so went into the second game without him again, which made him sulk and stand 20 yards away from anyone else and refuse to help score. I sat out of the last game to let him play as my hip was a bit stiff and managed not to sulk  ;)
