Shambles on Coke- Again!

August 29, 2007

Our roving South African reporter uncovered this revealing picture of our illustrious Saturday 1st XI skipper in a particularly camp moment in Cape Town. As you can see either the Coke was laced with something other than Coke, or, there is something rather exciting in the bunk above. You be the judge! 

Buenos dias Amigos!

August 21, 2007

Ola amigos, it is I from very sunny Gran Canaria. I am sitting here having seen the complete washout from last weekend! However, UP THE U15´s! I have been sitting in 80+ degree heat and wondering how the Badgers are getting on, only to find that nothing happened last weekend! I´m bitterly disappointed! Anyway I´ve […]

Two Week Hiatus

August 12, 2007

The blog will be on a two week hiatus period as I am off to sunnier climes. I have not had a holiday in the cricket season for many years and I decided that this was the year to break the habit. In my absence I am expecting to have more entries for the caption […]

New Extension to Pavilion Planned!

August 12, 2007

I can exclusively reveal that plans are being forwarded to Oundle Town Council for a bedroom extension to the Pavilion at Milton Road. It has been noted that both Bunzie & Rodders have been spied sleeping in the vicinity of the ground. There is categorically no truth in the rumour that it was together! However, […]

Peter Burnham Memorial Game

August 10, 2007

What a stonker! Firstly, I would like to thank all the guys (And Trish) who turned out to play for both sides. It was a belter of a wicket prepared by Bunze and the team. 500+ runs in the day shows how well it played. It seems that whatever the day we decide to have the […]

Depressing Saturday!

August 7, 2007

It had to happen, the unbeaten run in Division 4 is over. First weekend in August is not a bad effort though. Well Done to Wellingborough Town for recording the first victory against an Oundle 1st XI this season. I did manage to catch up with Captain P.C. Campbell who was propping up the bar at a […]

BLOODY MAN UTD!

August 4, 2007

It was hard enough to take that Man Utd won the Premiership last season, but now they have to decimate the Cricket season as well. A weekend of crucial games in the Northants League and some of the lads have decided that to go and watch the Man Utd 5th XI against a full strength […]

CHAIRMAN’S XI

August 4, 2007

I am beginnning to understand the frustration that the England Manager feels when the weekend before a crucial game his well laid plans go belly up as the fundamentals of his team either become injured or unavailable. This week my eyes lit up when I met Mark Phythian in The Talbot and invited him into the […]

Oundle Cricket Clinics & U15(A) Cup Match.

August 3, 2007

I have just come back from coaching at another Oundle Cricket Clinic. The clinic this week, and those for the remainder of the season, are being held at Milton Road. This is a departure from recent years where they have been held at Pavilion Drive. A major reason for this is to give the clinic […]

Club Captain

August 1, 2007

With 4 days to go Merwe has been busy helping sort out the teams for Sunday. The original team that the club proposed against the Chairman’s XI has now been scrapped as the Club Captain believed that Australia were not a viable oppposition and it would be embarrasing if we beat them. Actually that is […]
