28th June 2009, Uffington, Away – Win

It was a lovely hot day at Uffington, I won the toss and put Uffington in to bat. Moobs and Circus opened and it wasn’t long before they both took wickets bowling the opening batsmen. Then Circus struck again as the batsman spooned an easy high catch to me at mid on. After ten overs they were three down with only 25 runs. A good start. Then Peachy got one and bowled really tightly only giving away seven runs from his four overs. Chris Yates bowled tightly too… and Olly… and “Albert” Ross.…continue reading →

14th June 2009, Harwell International, Away – Lose

Only time for a short report this week. So here goes. We bowled first at Harwell in a controversially long 40 over game against Harwell. This was mostly so that we could listen to England beat India in the Twenty20 world cup. A great start saw both of Harwell’s openers, Steve Pritchard and Toby Gallington out for ducks after 9 balls thanks to some great bowling from Moobs and Peachy and a some lovely catches by ’Bows and Rich Lonnon. However that was it for wickets for a while as Harwell’s M.Davies showed…continue reading →

7th June 2009, Eynsham, Home

So, after a brief summer, the Twenty20 world cup has brought us miserable weather and on the day that England managed to survive and stay in the world cup by beating Pakistan, Wantage faced a tough challenge against Eynsham. Wantage being one player down made the challenge more testing. Wantage won the toss and chose to field, hoping that the wicket may dry out a bit later on. Eynsham batted well and tore apart the opening bowling attack. Moobs going for 27 and Pippy 25 runs off their 3 overs, although Moobs did…continue reading →

Aldworth CC – Home – Wednesday

The Wednesday team reconvened on the 3rd of June, having had the away fixture to Woodcote postponed due to rain a week earlier. A dry and sunny week had passed and the team was confident that a win was possible against opponents Aldworth CC who had also started the year with one win and one defeat. (more…)

Ducklington – Away – Steve Dixon Cup

Once again it seems that the Sunday match report has found it’s way onto the website before the Saturday one, I blame the captains… This week was round 2 of the Steve Dixon Memorial Cup, after dealing with the troublesome Chipping Norton in round 1 we were confident when taking on Ducklington. The difference this time? We’re away. And anyone who’s played against Ducklington will know what I mean by that… whether you’ve played football or cricket you will have experienced the same facilities and insanely low showers. Only thing shorter are the…continue reading →

31st May 2009, Crowmarsh, Home

It’s always good to play a cricket match in sunny weather. It can be hot and frustrating in the field when you’re chasing the ball to every boundary and looking under hedges and in the long grass in the neighbouring field for balls that have been dispatched for 6 by the opposing team. But it’s better to do this glistening with sweat than to be cold and miserable as we often have been at this time of year. The Derek Shorter Cup match proved to be a very challenging game for Wantage this…continue reading →
