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

Sunday the 8th of September at The Rose Green Center on Gordon Road. The Cricketers Sunday League Team take on The Blagdon Blades in the last game of the season, a win will guarantee promotion to the dizzy heights of division one and possibly the League Title ( depending on the difference in net run rate between Us and the Old E). You have my word it will be a day to remember. The game starts at 1.30 pm and the bar will be open all day and evening. It would be great to use our home advantage by having as many supporters as possible to cheer...

In reply the Cowboys got the runs for the loss of 8 wickets with 3.2 overs spare. Ubberpops scored 47 not out and Gandpa Kelly scored 28. Scorecard DC1 reports thus: The Exiles first innings score of 158 for 6 down, amassed in 3 or 4 sessions between heavy showers, was a bit higher a total than skipper Jeff would have been happy with – and when the Cowboys reply faltered badly at 5...
Both Saturday games got to about 20 overs and then were rained off. The Sundays managed to dodge the showers and beat Peasdown St John b y 101 runs. Dunc reports it thus: Hey Pop Pickers! It was a slightly less glorious weather day in paradise, as the Cowboys Team Sunday (CTS) swaggered into Rose Green to defend a winning run which had put them into a creditable 3rd place in Div 2. Continuing that winning run against Peasedown St John (PSJ), the current incumbents of 2nd position, would make the Cowboys look very much like the main...
