Sunday 21st April 2019
Royal London one day cup .( North group)
Leicestershire v Worcestershire
Admission . Free ( life membership)
Scorecard £ 1
Year book . Free (to members.)

After 2 rounds of championship games we are now on to one day cup games. Leicestershire had lost their first 2 games, while Worcestershire had won their only game in the competition so far . Having watched these 2 sides only 10 days earlier in the championship . I was not optimistic that Leicestershire had any chance.
On a glorious Easter Sunday Leicestershire won toss and chose to bat ( just like they should of in the championship game.). It looked a bad choice as they lost 2 wickets in the first over . Leicestershire 5-2 after 1 . The rest of the innings belonged to Leicestershire . A 3rd wicket stand of 170 between Dearden and Ackermann and then a club record one day 4th wicket stand of 200 between Ackermann and Hill . Leicestershire ended the innings on 377 - 4 . Dearden made 91 his highest one day score, while Ackermann 152 not out and Hill 118 made there first list A centuries. It was Leicestershire's 3rd highest one day score and highest against first class opposition . Ackermann became the 12th Leicestershire player to score over 150 in one day cricket .
Worcestershire started badly losing 5 wickets for 75 runs. D'oliveria and Whiteley put on 89 and then Whiteley and Barnard 116 gave Worcestershire some hope. In the end Leicestershire kept picking up wickets and Worcestershire were bowled out for 339. Leicestershire winning by 38 runs. Whiteley top scored for the visitors with 131 also his first list A century . Barnard made 61 and D'oliveria 57. The pick of the Leicestershire bowlers were Klien 4-72 and Ackermann 3-55. The only down side to Leicestershire's win was that Tom Taylor was removed from bowling for 2 consecutive full tosses which were call ed no balls. An excellent days cricket with over 700 runs.

Sunday 28th April 2019
Norden versus Ramsbottom (1pm, 100 overs)
Lancashire League, Division One
Norden won the toss and elected to field
Ramsbottom 154 off 48.3 overs (12pts) beat by 19 runs Norden 135 off 43 overs (6pts)
Free admission (a Lancashire League first for me), no programmes
Attendance 112 (h/c)
Tea £1 (chips-with-everything food also available from the clubhouse)

Think I'll make this the last league cricket game I watch in which Daryn Smit appears as a professional. As on the two previous occasions I've seen the South African all-rounder feature in a sub pro capacity, this afternoon's fixture turned into the Daryn Smit Show. Smit, on Derbyshire's books and without a league cricket club, hit 72 to enable Ramsbottom, one of his former clubs, to recover from 66-5 to post a reasonably challenging total of 154. He then wrecked Norden's bid for victory by taking 6-26, a haul that included two wickets in two balls. At this level of cricket, is it right one bloke can have such an impact on the outcome? Smit is helping out Ramsbottom for the first three games of the season because the club's 2019 professional, George Linde, another South African, is engaged elsewhere with T20 commitments.

Smit apart, only opener J.J. Fielding (29) made any runs for Rammy on a ground left damp and slow by torrential rain over the previous two days. Norden professional Jake Sandham, a Salford-born medium pacer, took 4-30 and skipper Hashum Malik 3-35. The hosts struggled similarly to make headway with the bat. Pacer Jack Wynn (3-33) claimed the first three wickets to fall. They included opener Josh Tolley (23). From 93-7, the big-hitting Malik (whose 28 not out included three sixes in one over) and wicketkeeper Lee Crabtree (21) got Norden into a position to win, only for spinner Smit to swap ends and remove the last two batters. The rumblings of discontent from the home supporters were audible. Extras (24, including four Smit wides) was Norden's second best score.

On the whole, this was an enjoyable afternoon's cricket, though once fitful sunshine disappeared for good after the tea interval, it got decidedly chilly. Norden's Stag Park ground, on the northwestern extremities of Rochdale, next to the A680, about half-a-mile from Spotland Stadium, proved much more pleasant than I expected. Tight and compact, it is fringed with trees, many bearing spring blossom, and is overlooked on two sides by Pennine hills and a couple of loftily-located farms. The Stag Park name derives from a time before housing development hereabouts when deer were prone to drifting down off the hills to browse the pitch. The ground is known also as Woodhouse Lane (the A680). The two-storey clubhouse, occupying the northwest corner, is a modern, functional building. A traditional layout sees an extremely smart bar/function room on the ground floor, with the dressing rooms and players balcony above. This afternoon, the bar did a roaring trade with boozed-up punters watching televised football. Limited parking, accessed via Shawfield Lane, is available only at the south end, where a collection of picnic tables offers a popular perch. Plenty of benches elsewhere, bar the tarmacked west end, where parking bays are out of bounds to all-comers.

For anyone out there who enjoys hopping the Minor Counties grounds, Oxfordshire have a couple of home games coming up which might cause some confusion.
MONDAY 6/5/19 SHROPSHIRE (T20)
This game is being played at the Magdalen College School ground (known locally as MCS) which is adjacent to Magdalen Bridge and The Plain roundabout. It is not being played at the Oxford University Magdalen College ground on Marston Road. Anyone driving to the game should note that, if the school website is correct, there is no parking at this venue at all, not even for players and officials. The nearest car park is the St.Clements Car Park, but be prepared to part with £15 or £20 for a full day.
SUNDAY 9/6/19 BERKSHIRE (T20)
The Minor Counties Annual lists the venue for this game as "Banbury" but it is being played at Banbury CC's second ground on Ermont Way and not their main ground at Bodicote. The Ermont Way ground was formerly the home of Banbury Twenty CC who played in the Cherwell League until 2011. The postcode is OX16 3JT and the ground is virtually adjacent to M40 Junction 11.

Thanks for that info AV1960...... If I donít have to work Iím planning to go to Magdalen College as the ground looks stunning from the online photos Iíve seen.

Meanwhile.....

Monday 29 April 2019

MCC YCs v Essex 2nd XI @ West Herts CC

Second Eleven Trophy
Admission Free

A pretty disappointing venue and game.

Essex could only amass 140 all out from 45 overs in which included only nine boundaries on a slow low track. MCC YCs who are this season coached by ex England fast bowler Ajmal Shahzad paced themselves perfectly in reply knocking them off inside 42 overs.

West Herts CC is in Watford and pretty central to the town centre. Found the ground to be totally underwhelming - a sports club with a drab pavilion, constant noise of traffic and no notable features.

This coming Monday, 6th May (a Bank Holiday, of course!) is the inaugural Women's County Cricket Day, a campaign designed to encourage county supporters to support their women's county team.

Some inspiration has been taken from Non-League Day, coupled with the sharp reduction in the amount of weekend men's county cricket on the calendar this summer (women's Championship matches, followed by the T20 Cup are played EVERY Sunday and both Bank Holidays through May and June).

The fixtures and venues for Monday are as follows, in case anybody is at a loose end...

DIVISION 1

Hampshire v Yorkshire - Totton and Eling CC
Kent v Warwickshire - Kent CCC, Beckenham
Surrey v Lancashire - Guildford CC
Sussex v Nottinghamshire - Brighton Aldridge Community Academy

DIVISION 2

Berkshire v Worcestershire - North Maidenhead CC
Devon v Wales - North Devon CC, Instow
Somerset v Durham - Taunton Vale

DIVISION 3 (three regional groups)

Cumbria v Leicestershire - Lindal Moor CC
Derbyshire v Scotland - Marehay CC
Northumberland v Lincolnshire - Stocksfield CC

Cambridgeshire v Netherlands - Bluntisham CC
Norfolk v Northamptonshire - Cromer CC
Suffolk v Hertfordshire - Copdock and Old Ipswichian CC

Cornwall v Gloucestershire - Roche CC
Dorset v Oxfordshire - Hurn Sports Club
Wiltshire v Buckinghamshire - South Wilts CC, Salisbury

Admission to all match is FREE (with the exception of Kent, who charge £5 for over 16s).

I will be at North Maidenhead to watch the mighty Worcestershire!

Village Cup 1st Round
Hampshire Group

Sarisbury Athletic 194-4 defeated Hambledon 193-9

First cricket of the summer and stayed as local as possible for a new venue.

Hambledon batting first collapsed from 163-3 to 193-9 with the last player not batting and then conceded 17 off the first over and never really recovered, making the run chase relatively routine, winning with 6 overs spare.

Interesting venue this - just off the A27 and despite being a public rec ground, is fairly enclosed with Coldeast Forest behind the clubhouse end and down one side with slight banking the clubhouse end and slightly on the corners on both sides which give excellent views.

Saturday May 4th Derbyshire Premier League
Elvaston v Swarkestone
Swarkestone 262-9 50 overs Elvaston 208 all out 48.3 overs
My 2019 cricket season started a full 2 weeks earlier than last year with a visit to the stunning ground of Elvaston, a tiny village separated from Borrowash by a narrow road bridge. The ground is reached by a narrow track off the road through the village and although signposted it is easy to miss the sign with overhanging foliage obscuring it if coming from Borrowash. You have to go through the grounds of Elvaston Castle Country Park to reach the ground where the entrance to the main car park is directly opposite the 15th century St Bartholomew's Church. The set up here is two interlocking pitches with the smaller pitch (being used on Saturday for a fourth team game) being the further away of the two. It is an idyllic setting with horse riders and pedestrians regularly passing by with some very mature deciduous trees in the grounds of the park as well as one on the actual first team pitch which wasn't hit once during the game despite its huge girth. I hadn't managed a DPL game last year in what constituted a poor season for me with a mere 16 matches being watched. Hopefully with so many new county venues this season I should beat that total and get beyond the teens. We shall see - as long as CBA doesn't kick in too often!The weather was decidedly chilly here as lordcleeoftilehill and myself managed, as we unerringly do, to find the coldest part of the ground. However, we were rewarded with warmer weather as we moved close to the very attractive (recently?) expanded pavilion which is one of the smallest I have seen at Premier League level - the gents toilets were outside the building itself.On the field Elvaston were made to pay for their insertion of a useful looking Swarkestone outfit who benefited from four of their players reaching the 40s and some very wayward Elvaston bowling which produced 33 extras including 21 wides. Swarkestone fielded and certainly bowled better which ensured a victory, achieved at 6.50 pm when the last Elvaston player was dismissed. I predict a season of struggle for the homesters whilst I would expect Swarkestone to be one of the title challengers.

Monday 6th May
1100 @ Sidmouth CC
Unicorns T20 Group 4
Wiltshire 187/6 20 overs beat Devon 153 all out 18.4 overs
Attendance peaked at 90
Free Admission - Scorecard £1

Attended the first of this double header before heading off to football at Culm United in the afternoon. The match I saw was a comfortable win for the visitors who amassed 115 without loss before finally losing a wicket in the 11th over. It wasn't until the 16th over they lost another wicket. After losing their two openers who scored over 130 between them the run rate slowed and they ended up losing 6 wickets, all catches except the 5th which was a run out. Set 188 to win, Devon made a good fist of it initially and were very much still in the game going into the 15th over but in a very short space of time they went from 135/4 to 137/8 finallly losing their final wicket in the penultimate over. Eight of the wickets were catches with one bowl out and one lbw. Missed the most exciting of the two games, the second match finished in a 149 each tie.

Fortfield is a lovely venue on the seafront in Sidmouth surrounded by hotels, the Belmont to the west the most imposing. The sea to the south while bordering the end to the east are croquet lawns overlooked by an imposing cliff top hill. The small wooden pavilion lies on the north side, the electronic scoreboard in the SW corner which counted down the overs remaining.

Two dry days in south Wales were celebrated with a very enjoyable double header. First up was:
PORT TALBOT TOWN v PONTARDDULAIS
SATURDAY 4TH MAY, 2019
AT THE NEW MANSEL, FENBROOK CLOSE, BAGLAN MOORS
SOUTH WALES PREMIER CRICKET LEAGUE - PREMIER DIVISION ONE
PONTARDDULAIS 138 ALL OUT (33.2) PORT TALBOT TOWN 139 FOR 8 (47.2)
This was a revisit from two years ago. On that occasion I attended for a Glamorgan IIs fixture but the only action I saw was a paddle around the outfield. Last year's scheduled Glamorgan IIs fixture was moved near the date of the game so a club game seemed the best way to tidy up this venue.
The ground is only a short distance from J41 of the M4 and the hum of the traffic was a constant accompaniment to the day's cricket. Other than that, this is an excellent ground on which to watch your cricket. The pleasingly old fashioned brick built pavilion is on your left as you arrive, although it has a modern extension. To the front of the pavilion is a very large patio area with many picnic benches and this area was well used by the end of the day. The view from the pavilion is probably the best on the ground, looking away to the steep hills, although all of the ground is attractive. An early circuit was very useful as the side of the ground nearest the M4 was out of the wind and also enjoyed the sun, so there was no doubt where to set up camp!
The pitch had a healthy green tinge and it certainly wasn't a batsman's paradise. With the game being 50 overs per side win or lose, Pontarddulais ticked along at a fair rate but lost wickets regularly and only 57 from Rhys Thomas saw them reach 138. By contrast Port Talbot took the option of grinding out the runs, but even this approach saw them at 59 for 6. With Mark Cox dropping anchor (25 not out from 82 balls) the tail inched to the target and finally got there in the 48th over, ably assisted by 'extras' who top scored with 33.
Purists might not have enjoyed seeing the game played with an orange ball. Apparently the plan is to switch to coloured clothing next season so the orange ball is being trialled this season with a pink ball having been used in 2018.


WALES M.C. v DEVON
SUNDAY 5TH MAY, 2019
AT NEWBRIDGE C.C., NEWBRIDGE WELFARE GROUND, BRIDGE STREET.
MINOR COUNTIES T20 GROUP 4 (SCORECARDS £1)
GAME 1: WALES M.C. 151 ALL OUT (19.4) DEVON 126 FOR 8 (20.0)
GAME 2: WALES M.C. 165 FOR 5 (20.0) DEVON 159 FOR 8 (20.0)
Newbridge C.C. share with the rugby club so the left hand side of the ground as you enter is dominated by the rugby stand, terracing, clubhouse and floodlights. Sadly it all looks rather neglected and could definitely do with a dose of tlc. Most of the ground around to the relatively small pavilion is tree lined and finally is the modern leisure centre building. One unfortunate aspect of sharing with the rugby club is that part of the outfield was rather rough, so fielders in that area had to take great care.
Over the years Wales have struggled in Minor Counties cricket so it was a real pleasure to see them enjoy a successful day against last season's T20 semi-finalists. Right from the first over they displayed a very positive attitude and some of their catching and fielding was of the highest order. Devon never looked like chasing successfully in the first game and seemed to have learned their lesson when batting a second time. However Wales gradually slowed them down and won for the second time in the day.
Devon's Edward Middleton took 5 for 22 in the first game but man of the day was undoubtedly Callum Taylor of Wales with 41 and 46 with the bat plus 2 for 26 and 2 for 16 with the ball.
A very enjoyable day's cricket in the company of other Minor Counties hoppers, with thoughts by the end of the day turning to Bank Holiday Monday in Oxford.

OXFORDSHIRE v SHROPSHIRE
MONDAY 6TH MAY, 2019
MINOR COUNTIES T20 - GROUP 2
AT MAGDALEN COLLEGE SCHOOL, OXFORD
GAME 1: OXFORDSHIRE 190 FOR 3 (20.0) SHROPSHIRE 120 ALL OUT (18.5)
GAME 2: SHROPSHIRE 156 FOR 9 (20.0) OXFORDSHIRE 159 FOR 4 (19.0)
Most new grounds on the Minor Counties circuit require some fairly basic homework. Find out the ground's address, possibly obtain a street plan of the location and make your travel arrangements. Oxfordshire managed to introduce a whole new degree of fun into the process for this game. First up was the question of avoiding any confusion between the actual venue at Magdalen College School and the University of Oxford Magdalen College ground on Marston Road. The Minor Counties Annual has a section devoted to this season's venues and their addresses but gives no address for the MCS. The second issue was just for drivers, who would have arrived at the venue to find no parking of any description. (Not just spectators. The Shropshire scorer apparently 'enjoyed' a tour of Oxford looking for somewhere to put her car). Fortunately an early examination of the school website had warned of this problem but sadly the only solution was a 1/2 mile hike from the nearest roadside parking or cough up £15 or £20 on the nearest car park.
Finally and probably best of all was when the intrepid travellers finally arrived at Magdalen Bridge by The Plain roundabout and looked across at the enticing cricket ground in the middle distance, reached via a footpath across two bridges over the River Cherwell. Except the gateway through the school to the footpath was securely locked! A walk around the school finally revealed a way in, down a tiny passageway around the school buildings while studiously ignoring all the signs forbidding public admission and warning that you are under CCTV surveillance. (During the break between the two games we even found a local resident wandering up and down the road outside looking for a way in).
And the reward for all of this fun and games? Sorry guys, no scorecards! I fully understand that club officials give their time for no reward, so producing scorecards can be an apparent inconvenience. A quick news item on the Oxfordshire website, however, would have taken little time and could have outlined the venue address, the car parking situation and the route into the ground. Particularly given that Minor Counties hoppers must have accounted for 50% of the 'crowd' in attendance.
Once into the ground, what a gem it is. Basically an island in the middle of the River Cherwell with a small but attractive pavilion and views across to the nearby Botanic Gardens in one direction and to St.Hilda's College in the other. Throughout the day students were punting past, carefully avoiding the occasional six which splashed into the water. The only thing that could have made this more idyllic would have been warmer weather.
On the field Shropshire elected to field in the first game but never looked like getting near Oxfordshire's 190, being 71 for 7 and eventually 120 all out. A further successful toss in the second game saw a change of tactic and a decision to bat but their 156 for 9 looked vulnerable. Despite fluctuations along the way, Oxfordshire got there with an over to spare led by Jonathan Cater's 61 not out.
The assembled company were all agreed that visiting such a venue was well worth the extra stress but looked forward to a much more restful experience when we return to Oxfordshire at Banbury XX.

Also at Magdalen College School ......

Rather than ass about trying to find somewhere to park and spending a fortune in parking I got the train.

The ground provided a supply of deckchairs for spectators which I was certainly thankful for, Just wish the weather had of been nicer as at times I was freezing! Also disappointed that there were no scorecards, only the second time at minor counties that Iíve not been able to purchase one.

I managed to get some fab photos especially one though the trees on Magdalen bridge showing the punting boats lined up with cricket in the background. Certainly a ground that will live long in the memory!

Sunday 12th May 2019
Treeton v South Kirkby Colliery (100 overs, 1pm)
Heavy Woollen Cup, Round Two
South Kirkby Colliery won the toss and elected to field
Treeton 251-8 off 50 overs beat by 79 runs South Kirkby Colliery 172-7 off 50 overs
Free admission, no programmes
Attendance 102 (h/c)
Tea £1 (chips-with-everything stuff also available)


Made a last-minute decision to head to Treeton rather than the Lancashire League Second Division fixture between Great Harwood and Colne. Rather backfired! This battle of former pit village clubs was desperately dull. Treeton, third in the Yorkshire South Premier League, coasted to victory over South Kirkby Colliery, second in the Pontefract & District League's First Division, that competition's top tier. The hosts, put in, struggled for runs at a smallish ground where 300 is regarded as a decent score. The leading contributions were 86 and 49. Treeton lost momentum when each of those batters departed. With boundaries at a premium, South Kirkby Colliery never looked like chasing down the target but at least avoided being bowled out. Their No 3 batter finished 55 not out. The proceedings dragged on for the full 100 overs, which took six-and-a-half hours to complete. Two-thirds of the way through the visitors' reply, there was a problem with the digital scoreboard. It had stopped updating. An umpire walked over to investigate. As he did so, a wag in the crowd shouted: "He's so bored, he's going home with the ball."

Luckily, Treeton's ground, once a miners welfare and characteristic of the breed, less than 10 minutes from junction 33 of the M1, is surprisingly pleasant. Certainly appeared at its best on a warm, sunny afternoon. Looking north across the square from the shade of a line of mature trees fringing the southern boundary, we enjoyed the sight of a church tower peeping over the village's rooftops and the functional cricket clubhouse. The east side of the cricket square forms a common border with a pitch used (according to signage) by Treeton FC. This afternoon, it was available for parking. The cricket pitch slopes downhill appreciably from north to south. One oddity is a freestanding stone clock tower alongside the 'bar half' of the clubhouse. Mementos in an anteroom next to the bar include a display commemorating Treeton's visit to Lord's for the 1987 National Village Cup Final. A solo exploration during the tea interval revealed beyond the splendidly gnarled trees lining and overhanging the southern boundary is a railway line (trains are heard but not seen) and a multi-habitat wildlife area soon to become part of the massive Waverley development, to feature 4,000 new homes. According to a sign by the footbridge over the railway, Waverley is "Yorkshire's biggest and best business and residential development".

Saturday May 11th Leicestershire Premier League Cropston 167 all out 46 overs Barkby United 127 all out 40.1 overs. No admission charge or programme/scorecard.
The ground is on a cul de sac in this attractive village, Cropston CC have a very small car park so an early arrival is recommended here. The pitch slopes hither and thither with the square being the lowest point of the ground and the overall effect is to create a bowl-like set up. Despite this and the heavy rain which there had been in the week the pitch was, according to one of the Barkby fielders, very dry and a great credit to the groundsman. Myself, lordcleeoftilehill, and AV1960 (moonlighting from Villa Park) chose to watch from the highest point of the ground which is atop a bank on the far side of the ground with the locomotives from the Great Central Railway being clearly heard throughout the afternoon. This was the warmest part of the ground but we still suffered a 40 minute rain delay which fortunately included an early tea to reduce the time lost to a mere 10 minutes. Neither side found batting easy with more batsmen clean bowled than is usually the case and it was a struggle for Cropston - enjoying their first season in the Premier League - managing to reach a paltry 167 - which despite their dropping half a dozen catches, including two in consecutive balls proved far too many for a feeble Barkby batting line up. On the evidence of this game it is hard to see either of these teams being anything more than relegation candidates.

Sunday May 12th Minor Counties Knockout Trophy 1st Round Cheshire 257-7 50 overs Northumberland 224 46.4 overs £1 raffle ticket £1 scorecard (with copious information) £3.50 cheeseburger with onions.
A beautiful ground on the outskirts of Knutsford, myself and lordcleeoftilehill had visited here a few years ago for a Cheshire game which ended up being abandoned so we were familiar with the magnificent surroundings here in a moneyed part of Cheshire. The pitch is surrounded by mature deciduous trees providing plenty of shelter for spectators with benches dotted around the perimeter. There is a large car park here but the pavilion, although fittingly made of wood, is a bit on the small side, and I noticed that there are plans to replace it. Toft is a village who are former finalists in the Village Knockout.
I haven't watched any Minor Counties knockout matches in the last couple of years and I noticed that since my last game coloured clothing has been introduced (Northumberland in green and the home team in black) and far more of the bowling being done by spinners than used to be the case; thus resulting in a finish well before 6 o'clock. This was a very entertaining game with some breathtaking shots including the reverse sweep and the scoop. Despite a brilliant 112 by Adam Hickey Northumberland were always struggling to maintain the necessary run rate and once he was dismissed the rest of the innings subsided very quickly to give Cheshire a comfortable victory and the reward of a trip to Lincolnshire in the next round.

WRENTHORPE v ELLAND
SUNDAY 12TH MAY, 2019
HEAVY WOOLLEN CUP ROUND TWO
8 PAGE PROGRAMME £2, RAFFLE £1 OR BOTH FOR £2.50
WRENTHORPE 257 FOR 4 (50.0) ELLAND 81 ALL OUT (25.4)


After yesterday's rural delight at Cropston it was back to a very urban ground today with Wrenthorpe's Bragg Lane End ground (on Bradford Road) being surrounded by housing. Despite this one side of the ground is tree lined from the adjoining back gardens and the newest housing immediately behind the sightscreen offered at last two large conservatories as target practice for any ambitious straight drives!
The pavilion to your right as you enter has the appearance of a bungalow and only houses the home side's dressing room with the away side being billeted in a nearby portakabin. Along the right hand side of the ground are a collection of stands which can only be described as quirky and give the ground a unique character. Some of these are only large enough to accommodate three benches but the largest has an eyrie like addition from where the scorers enjoy an elevated view. Anyone arriving without their own chair has no problem as there are a number of benches around the ground plus a low wall which doubles as seating.
Wrenthorpe have got off to a flying start to their season in the Bradford Premier League whereas their opponents Elland play in The Championship (the second division) of the Huddersfield Cricket League so a mismatch was always a possibility. Elland perhaps wisely decided to field and soon had Wrenthorpe struggling at 6 for 2, but that was as good as it got. With plenty of time available Luke Patel and Khalil Khan set about their task with due diligence at first but gradually becoming more expansive. By the time Patel was out for 101, the board read 221 for 3 with Khan going on to 116 not out in Wrenthorpe's 257 for 4 from 50 overs. The gulf in class was fully exposed in Elland's reply which subsided to 81 all out with Matty Race taking 4 for 25.

Day 3 County Championship Division 2 Glamorgan v Gloucestershire played at Newport CC Spytty Park Car Park £6 (phew!) Admission £15 Scorecard £1 Tea £1.20 Day 3 Gloucestershire 463 Glamorgan 250 and 359-1

The unavailability of the World Cup venues for much of this season has necessitated that several counties vacate their luxurious homes for out grounds. Thus there are a whole tranche of new venues for 4 day matches. I have already visited Radlett for a Hertfordshire Minor Counties game so won't be rushing back there and Beckenham has been on the itinerary for a few seasons but I haven't got there yet; the hope is that I shall be there on Tuesday, Newport IOW, Sedbergh (in Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales but not Lancashire for whom, very controversially, they are staging a game), York and Welbeck.However, it was the return of first class cricket to Newport Gwent which drew me to the first of these matches for Day 3 of their fixture against Gloucestershire as it gave me the opportunity to kill three birds with one stone - an ECB Premier League ground, a Minor Counties venue and a county championship destination.
Bizarrely the first over was completed before 11.00 as the pavilion clock appeared to be a couple of minutes early. Glamorgan lost their 9th and last wicket soon afterwards and that was it as their captain was unable to return after retiring hurt the previous day. This meant that Gloucestershire enforced the follow on - and only one more wicket was to fall for the rest of the day as Glamorgan steadily batted their way out of trouble as Nick Selman and Marnus Labuschagne acquired centuries of vastly differing styles. In truth Gloucestershire's attack was toothless by the end of the day and the game was intriguingly set up for the final day (in fact Gloucestershire were hanging on at the end the following day).The ground is on the outskirts of Wales' third largest city, unlike Newport CC's previous ground in Rodney Parade which is in a central location and still houses the football and rugby with a primary school on the site of the cricket ground. It is an attractive ground which had been embellished with temporary plastic seating around roughly half of the boundary with just to the left of the sight screen one large elevated bank of seating consisting of 10 rows of seats in three blocks with a total of 27 in each row. The clubhouse is of an unusual design and pleasingly the bar area was open to the general public and even had a real ale available. An enjoyable if not outstanding day's cricket between two sides who I do not expect to be challenging for honours this season.

Sunday 19th May 2019
Woodhouses versus Burnley (90 overs, 1pm)
Lancashire Knockout Cup, Round One
Burnley won the toss and elected to bat
Burnley 109 off 31 overs lost by seven wickets to Woodhouses 111-3 off 20 overs
Free admission, no programmes
Attendance 60 (h/c)
Barbecue in operation (didn't bother)


Burnley's weekend went from bad to worse at The Belfields. Yesterday, Ramsbottom routed the Turf Moor men by 73 runs at Acre Bottom to replace their opponents at the top of the Lancashire League's First Division. This afternoon, Burnley stumbled at the Lancashire KO Cup's first hurdle, ousted comprehensively by Greater Manchester League Premier Division hosts Woodhouses.

Having won the toss, Burnley opted to bat. On a cloudy day, it looked an odd decision. Disastrous, it transpired. Burnley slumped to 34-6 in the 10th over. A seventh-wicket stand worth 51 repaired some of the damage but the visitors were shot out in less than two hours for just 109. Alex Spender took 4-16. Woodhouses, who the previous day had won their first league game of the season, beating a young Royton XI by 10 wickets, were 0-2 in the second over before Nick Hardman (49 not out) saw them home, clinching victory with a big six. Neither team were at full strength, though Burnley's complaints about the allegedly poor quality of the wicket stank of sour grapes.

The compact, tidy ground used by Woodhouses (a comparatively well-heeled village in the vicinity of Failsworth, on the Manchester side of Oldham) has undergone major changes in recent months. The revamp means Woodhouses are now in a position to host private functions on matchdays - sure to improve significantly the club's non-cricket income. Smart new dressing rooms have been erected on the Medlock Road side, next to the dwelling occupied by a farmer with whom, we were informed, Woodhouses have a volatile relationship. The section of the clubhouse, located at the north end of The Belfields, occupied formerly by the dressing rooms has become a players' lounge. The entire clubhouse interior has had a facelift, and extremely plush it appears, too. Woodhouses, founded in 1908, secured grant aid from various sources to help pay for the work but raised an impressive £40,000 themselves. Next to the clubhouse is a large wooden tea hut, used by the players. On its walls are archive team photographs going back to the club's time as members of the North West and South Lancashire leagues. Plenty of wooden forms are dotted round this smallish ground, which offers contrasting views of the Pennine hills (to the east) and the tower blocks of central Manchester (to the west). Shade is available next to the scorebox, which occupies the south corner. The pitch slopes down in two directions, from side to side and from end to end. Bowlers running in from the clubhouse end certainly get up a head of steam. The Belfields is so cramped, there isn't any parking to speak of. Even players and umpires end up scrambling for space on Medlock Road, a narrow thoroughfare.

Four ties at this stage of the competition attracted my attention as potentially good to watch. One was the all-Lancashire League clash between Church & Oswaldtwistle and holders Darwen. Should've gone there! Darwen, who hit 254-6 to the hosts' 250-9, scraped home by four runs. Fifty-four clubs from 10 leagues are contesting the 2019 Lancashire Knockout Cup. The second round is scheduled for June 2.

Re: [mxhornet] Where are you going - where did you go? CRICKET!!! [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

A busy weekend of chasing ECB Premier League 'ticks' started with:
GEDLING COLLIERY v WOLLATON
SATURDAY 18TH MAY, 2019
NOTTS CRICKET BOARD PREMIER LEAGUE
AT GEDLING COLLIERY C.C., PLAINS ROAD, MAPPERLEY, NOTT'M
WOLLATON 272 FOR 8 (50.0) GEDLING COLLIERY 198 ALL OUT (46.1)
With the possibility of rain in the forecast something local beckoned. Add in the back up of two football matches nearby at Basford United and a visit to new Premier League club Gedling Colliery made perfect sense.
The driveway to the cricket ground is found alongside a Nuffield Leisure Centre whose neighbour in turn is the ground of Gedling M.W. of the East Midlands Counties League. The pavilion is to your left at the end of the drive and is a fairly modest structure with just a small communal area inbetween the two dressing rooms. There is no bar although canned drinks could be seen in a fridge, presumably for sale to spectators. The club have clearly made an effort for the new season with six apparently new picnic benches positioned in front of the pavilion. Otherwise there are a few benches around the ground, some of the simple plank variety.
A large part of the ground is surrounded by the Mapperley Golf Course with only a 6' high green mesh fence separating the two. This does mean the ground has a very rural feeling despite the nearby floodlights of the football ground. The square is almost on a 'crown' with the outfield running downhill in most directions and at the top of the ground is what seems to be the remains of a bowling green. The grass area is now used for additional parking and in the corner is a derelict small pavilion.
Events on the pitch sadly made me think Gedling Colliery are in for a struggle this season but the main memory of the afternoon was the conduct of Wollaton batsman Tim Young. Having been given out stumped (by yards) he disputed the decision with the umpires apparently on the grounds that there were too many fielders outside the fielding circle. He maintained that his risky choice of shot was determined by the knowledge that a no ball would be called. The umpires consulted and upheld their decision but the batsman still refused to leave. Eventually the Wollaton captain had to be called from the pavilion to escort his player from the field. The immediate effect on the game was five penalty runs added to the Gedling total when they batted and no doubt there will be further repercussions for the player himself.


Next up was a trip up the M1 to Yorkshire for the disturbingly early start time of 10am at:
YORKSHIRE SOUTH PREMIER LEAGUE T20 - GROUP C
SUNDAY 19TH MAY, 2019
AT WAKEFIELD THORNES C.C., FIELD LANE.
FIRST S.F.: WHITLEY HALL 170 FOR 7 (20.0) WAKEFIELD THORNES 171 FOR 3 (17.0)
SECOND S.F.: ELSECAR 118 FOR 7 (20.0) TREETON 120 FOR 4 (13.1)
FINAL: TREETON 177 ALL OUT (19.5) WAKEFIELD THORNES 123 FOR 9 (20.0)
A reasonably early arrival enabled me to park up at the back of the substantial pavilion. With the 6's flowing all day this was the safest place to be, but still not completely risk free. Compared to yesterday's ground the fairly new pavilion was a much more impressive structure and also different was the presence of some houses immediately adjacent to the ground. The 20' high netting didn't protect these houses fully and indeed one six cleared the netting and the houses and landed in front of the next row of houses.
There are some parts of the ground that need a bit of tlc but overall this is an impressive venue with the outfield in excellent condition. I settled down for the day in front of the tall hedge that separates the cricket field from Thornes Bowling Club as this provided an excellent wind break. As with many grounds in the north, bench seating was in plentiful supply so my own chair was not needed. The only slight disappointment was the absence of any programme although with the day running from 10am to 6.45pm the club impressively managed to squeeze in two raffles!
With the benefit of hindsight the first game was actually the better of the three with Thornes very impressive in reaching an apparently challenging target with three overs to spare. Elsecar looked out of their depth in the second semi-final then Thornes failed to repeat their first game efforts in the final when facing a similar target. I did get the impression that some of the players were not regular first teamers but again this shows the difficulty in asking club players to give up complete weekends for the game.
Yet again discipline reared it's head when the umpire turned down a caught behind appeal from the Treeton wicketkeeper. Apparently he considers it acceptable conduct with many children and women in the ground to shout an obscenity clearly audible from the boundary and to hurl the ball to the ground. Most bewildering was that as far as I could see, this only earned him a quiet word from the square leg umpire.
Apart from this blemish I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Yorkshire with Thornes seeming to manage very well the necessity for 'rolling' dressing rooms and the provision of refreshments to four lots of players.

Hampshire v Notts
County Championship - Day 2 @ Newclose Cricket Ground Isle of Wight

Admission £20, Programme £5, Scorecard 50p

What a wonderful addition to first class cricket this is. Hampshire last played on the Isle of Wight in 1962 (in Cowes) and Newclose Cricket ground was built in 2009 being the vision of the late Brian Gardener.

Just slightly north of Newport, Hampshire ran a free bus from Cowes, just a couple of minutes walk from west Cowes ferry terminal. The ground itself is beautiful and with a crowd of about 1,500 there was plenty of room and lots of seating was provided for those who didnít bring there own. Being a bowl like in shape, the raised views of the play are excellent and with such a decent crowd there was a nice atmosphere.

In pretty much unbroken sunshine all day, Hampshire ended 3-1 with a second innings lead of 74. Steven Mullaney was the hero for Notts with his 102 helping them reach 239 in reply to Hampshireís first innings 310.

There is an agreement to have county cricket at Newclose till 2022 so I doubt this will be my last visit here - I would love to know how many people were at the last first class game on IOW in 1962 and at this one.

Wednesday 22nd May 2019
Heworth Colts versus Londesborough Park
Foss Evening League, Division Three (36 overs, 6.30pm start)
Away team bat first in this competition
Londesborough Park 106-6 off 18 overs lost by three wickets to Heworth Colts 108-7 off 17.1 overs
Free admission, no programmes
Attendance 35 (h/c)
Clubhouse bar open for the sale of drinks (didn't partake)


Alfie Oliver smashed a big six off two-wicket Scott Hardwick, Londesborough Park's most successful bowler, to see Heworth Colts to victory with five balls to spare. Oliver, in at No 3, batted patiently on a pleasantly sunny evening for 32 not out, the highest score of the match. Support was provided by opener Jack Wilkinson (21) and shorts-wearing wicketkeeper Lewis Meek, whose quickfire 21 compensated for an erratic display behind the stumps. Batting first, the visitors set off at a fair lick, with openers Martin Pearson (29) and Lucas Stephenson (17) going well. Run-making became more difficult with their departure, though Hardwick (17 not out) maintained a calm presence. Isaac Clark (2-9) and veteran Lee Ford (2-14) spearheaded the Heworth attack.

We had intended to watch Heworth's midweek first XI in a Division One fixture at Long Marston-based Asgard Vikings. Fortunately, I contacted Asgard before setting off, and discovered Heworth, unable to raise a team, had scratched. With the clock ticking, the rush hour traffic building and options in short supply, we found ourselves at Heworth's Elmpark Way ground, less than three miles from home. First time here, though I have watched on several occasions Heworth Amateur Rugby League Club, whose very tidy ground is adjacent. Plenty of rugby league players, of all ages, were to be seen training this evening. An overheard conversation between two elderly Heworth cricket stalwarts indicated the midweek first XI simply couldn't be bothered trailing out to Long Marston, along the B1224 towards Wetherby. Cripes, it's not that far from York, even after a day's work!

In common with many cricket grounds in the York area, Heworth's is a rather soulless enclosure. The pitch, flat and a good size, is fringed at various points (the north and south ends, principally) by mature trees but, this being the crushingly dull Vale of York, there's an awful lot of sky in the backdrop. Heworth's large brick clubhouse, positioned on the west side, has an institutional atmosphere. Years ago, apparently, Heworth were York's leading cricket club. With their Saturday first XI languishing near the bottom of the York & District Senior League's second tier, that status must seem distant indeed. Some interesting archive photographs and press clippings on the clubhouse walls. The oldest team picture dates from 1910. Heworth, established in 1784, are one of England's oldest cricket clubs. Happy to get Elmpark Way ticked at an evening fixture. Not a ground on which I'd care to squander a Saturday or a Sunday.

The Foss Evening League is a T20 Wednesday competition. For 2019, it boasts four divisions, of eight, eight, six and six clubs. Those furthest from York include Londesborough Park, Middleton & North Dalton, Pocklington, Stamford Bridge, Thixendale and Wheldrake.

Heading to Lords on Saturday for the One Day Cup Final. First visit to Lords since the Women's World Cup Final in July 2017, and first time seeing Hampshire in action since I moved away from the south coast in 1993! Also the first time at any domestic one day final.
