Since getting home from Aus my circumstances have changed hugely. I'm gutted that I won't be able to play at Ansty this summer for a number of reasons, including needing to be near home in case of emergencies with two 90+ year old grandparents in and out of hospital in recent weeks. Although gutted about Ansty, I'm also pleased to have signed with Beaconsfield CC, who are in the Thames Valley first division, which will help my minor counties ambitions and is much closer to home. Had a net with them today and enjoyed it and their company, just need to get transfer papers sorted.

Kulli: out of interest, who plays cricket is Prague, and where? I was there with work a couple of weeks back and it didn't seem like the kind of place where cricket is played...

Pleased things are on the up, until you mentioned becky!

Looks like they are still in div 2 on the tvl website. Not a very good track historically, slow low turner. Things might have changed but unless they are paying you there are plenty of better options in the TVL.

Suits me as a spinner! It's local, new coach and some pretty amazing development plans to boot. If I'd gone to Chalfont I'd be playing against their 2s, the goal is definitely promotion this season. I decided against Amersham as my email got a cursory response, Chalfont as I have outgrown the club and don't think I was ever particularly popular there anyway, so I can go and be a big player at a club with potential.

@uknsaunders you're correct, they are in 2b. Does that mean I'll be coming up against yourself at some point?

Interesting cup match for me on the 27th consisting of 2 innings per team - first innings 10 overs and second 20 overs!  :D

Haven't played any cricket yet, but there was a charity pub quiz round tonight where you had to pick a named square in a draw. One of them was 'Willow'... earned us a round of drinks! 🍻

Season got underway at my new club last Saturday with an inter club match. Didnt start well dropping a catch at gully but redemped myself with the bat getting to the retirement target of 30 ( so everyone could get the chance to bat) however only I managed that feet lol  it was abit of a pudding to be fair.

The club go on tour tomorrow however those of us who have not gone have a pre season match this Saturday- here is hoping the oppo can raise a side

Coming Saturday got first game of season. Let's hope I could have a good start along with team having first win of season hopefully. The team selection shows good batting side with weak bowling.
Played a friendly match last sunday. I played to find out personally where I stand with my fitness and how I improved and I am pleased with my foam and fitness.

@Psi the usual mix of expats, although we did play against 2-3 genuine Czechs which was good to see. The two grounds we played at were both about 45mins outside the city. One called Vinor and the other Velvary.

First game of the season is fast approaching on Saturday. Our entire league has been restructured so pretty unclear what the standard will be like as it'll be a mix of 1st and 2nd teams. We've got a young squad of talented cricketers so hoping we can mix it with some of the big boys that are paying players (allegedly!).
Go well everyone!
