Great Start to New Season
The opening encounters of the new season have seen the Sunday 1st XI get of to a 2-0 start with wins, unfortunately the 2nd XI were not quite as successful with their opening game, losing narrowly to Godmanchester 2nd’s.
The prediction from Swanny at the Telegraph is that the Sat 1st’s will win Division 3 of the Northants League and that the Sun 1st XI will finish top 3 in the Rutland League. Well, well done Swanny. Another piece of incisive journalism. Bearing in mind the Sunday 1sts haven’t been out of the top 3 in the previous three seasons and the Sat 1sts must be odds on in the Northants, it was a bit of a no brainer!
I gather from an inside source at the opener of the Sunday 1sts that Fonzie Cunningham had some pretty adjacent LBW appeals. I hope he managed to appeal for them in his usual understated fashion. He always reminds me of Jack Dee on speed when appealing! What do you think? Enthusiasm… Ummm!
But well done Richie, a quality input in the performance.
I’m hoping to get an in depth interview with the 1st XI captain this year to get a personal view of his charges this year. Let’s hope VdM and Young Franco slot in well.
While we are on the subject, a hearty welcome to Young Franco (Sounds like a film about a Youthful Fascist Dictator).
and I’m pleased to hear he has sampled the delights of England’s Premier Football Stadium and already exposed the contents of his stomach to this fair land. Fair play to the Boer!
