The bats an inexpensive, but lovely, Aldred Butterly
I got him for Xmas (albeit 4-5 years ago). Is there a RSPCB that I can call?

It looks worse than it is because hes pulled the scuff off and half the contents of his kit bag are now stuck to it, but otherwise neglect. Used for 3-4 season (for a lot of runs) and doubt its ever seen oil or sandpaper.

Im tempted to kidnap it when I leave and take it home for some TLC. It isnt a pretty stick but its one of the best Ive ever batted with when Ive borrowed it.

Looks not too bad to sort that out and would come up really well, i'd be kidnapping it and having a play. 
Find an old bat in a kit bag somewhere and he will never know ;)

Does your brother play in Bristol @Kulli ? Bat looks familiar, if it's the one I think it is then it's a fantastic stick.

He played for Old Bristolians a few years ago, then had a year out of cricket when he was working in NY. In London now and playing casually for some nomadic friendly side.

Yep that'd be it, having a look at that bat after an indoor league game a few years back persuaded me I needed an Aldred!

Ah, guess you played against the big oaf then, and were as surprised as everyone is when he bowls little in wobblers  :D



Youll all be released to hear that shes on her way back to Oslo with me for some much needed TLC!

The rescue operation is underway

The grains are actually pretty straight and even under death all those wonky butterfly waves.

A pretty satisfying refurb so far. Once its finely sanded I might stick some stickers on it and tell him its a new one for his next birthday present 🤣

I'm fairly sure that the repair and refurb threads are some of the most popular on here, but I think this had to be one of the most drastic improvements to a bat.

I'm looking forward to seeing the end result  :)

These it little more satisfying than returning a lovely bat thats in a manky state, but if you cant do that looking at someone elses photos is the next best thing.
