2nd XI Show ‘Bounce Back Ability’!!

DCC II’s vs Kennington, 23 May 2015 It appeared throughout the week that the seconds would struggle to field a full team come Saturday. However, a combination of sweet talking and grovelling persuaded the league to free Dave “The Brave” Webb from his umpiring duties, meaning we went into the game with 11. We were put into bat on what initially seemed like a tough surface, especially with the Kennington opening bowlers seemingly swinging the Read more…

We knew it would be tough.

23 May 2015 1st XI away at Kidlington Being honest we knew were in for a tough day, being short of so many first team regulars. Sadly we were proven right. Taking the field first, skipper for the day Dave Barnhill asked for effort, commitment and a good attitude and the lads delivered in buckets.

Scotch Eggs & Pork Pies – Marcham away 2nd May

May 2nd 2015 and the start of another cricket season.  It was a dull, grey and chilly day when the 1st XI arrived at the ground in Marcham. We were quickly warmed by the cheerful and friendly Marcham team as well as some cutting changing room banter, although Barney and Blacky were just happy to find that their trousers still fitted.  Skipper Rammy got the first two decisions of the new season right by winning Read more…
