Snow, hail & a bitter wind…the cricket season is underway!

The weather might well have been extreme but it has been well worth spending time on the boundary as our cricketers have taken to the field.  This afternoon both our 1st XI & 2nd XI played exceptionally well.  In both cases, the games could have run away at critical points but unlike England’s recent world cup performance, they managed to close the game through holding their nerve!

With the 2nd Team, a three over spell starting with Alan, followed by Ben and Aiden saw wickets tumble swinging the game back in our favour.  A quick run to the 1st Team pitch and I literally caught a magical spell from James that saw three wickets falling in quick succession seeing Orley close the game with another win.  However, the highlight for me was watching the reaction of our senior players congratulating younger players…and again, hearing senior players clapping the opposition off the field…these are defining moments.  Well done gentlemen on all counts!
