Cricket

Starting in 1993 we now have four cricket teams: three league teams playing in the North Somerset League and a friendly Team.

“The diversion of cricket … upon days when men ought to be busy, and in the neighbourhood of a great city … is not only improper but mischievous in a high degree; it propagates a spirit of idleness and draws numbers of people from their employments, to the ruin of their families.”

Gentleman’s Magazine Vol. 13 (1743), pp486

Match Reports

Saturday 2nd Cricket! After last weekends washout, the Midweek CIL game cancelled and Knowle CC pulling out of today’s game vs the Wuns it was very nice indeed to be at the Farm. The strip hadn’t dried after all the rain and the sky was lowering as the skippers tossed, so when Alex – undertaking skippering duties due to Jeffo’s tender groin -reported that we were batting, the general assumption was that Grendels captain must have called correctly. Nope, set a target and then bowl them out, that was Alex’s plan....

During the coin toss said skipper pointed out that the cowboys hadn’t won this fixture since 2010 when we played them at Winford pissed out of our minds after watching England beat Slovenia down the pub. Winning the toss we decided to bat. Simon and Iggy opened up and immediately set about putting their...

20/20 Hope Match Report

A last minute change of venue meant this was played up at the Phoenix ground. The pitch was very wet and was unprepared so was slow, but with even bounce. Cowboys decided to bat first. Tom made a nice looking 39 from 39 balls, putting on 58 for the 2nd wicket with Angelo. Angelo and Evan then slogged and scrambled until Angelo was calling for the defibrillator. Eventually Ange reached his half century from the last ball of our innings – 50 from 43 balls including 2 sixes. Cowboys total 149 for 3. Once Alex had bowled Hopes opener who...
