This morning I received an email from David Burns who umpired for us against Charlbury yesterday, he is also the OCA vice chairman.

Hello Colin,

Thought I would drop you a note to say how much I enjoyed Wantage’s approach to your match at Charlbury yesterday.

Whilst you obviously wanted to win the game your teams attitude, sense of humour, spirit and respect to your opponents was absolutely first class.

If this is typical of your approach then you clearly know how to win with good grace. Very entertaining all round and deserving of a big well done from me.

Catching was rubbish though!!

Proves we must be doing something right, even if that isn’t catching (or Grant’s bowling which didn’t get a mention).
