Dare we Dream!
It may well be too early in the season to begin thinking about the end of the season, especially with the weather as it is, but what a fantastic start by the Saturday and Sunday 1st XI’s.
He may have seen his beloved Newcastle slide ignominiously from the Premiership, but Cameron Wake has led the 1st XI’s to the pinnacle of both Northants Division 3 and Rutland Division 1 without so much as a by your leave. Ably assisted by ‘Phillippe’ Adams the 100% start in both leagues suggest s that all is set fair for a very successful season. Coupled with the sphincter wrenching destruction of Peterborough Town (With virtually their Sat Northants Premier team) it highlights the remarkable start the Badgers of Oundle have made.
Can the 1st XI finally bring home the Rutland League Title which has so far eluded the Trophy cabinet at Milton Road?
Evaluating this particular team against any previous team/squad, for me is easy, this is the best side Oundle has put out in the 15 Years I’ve been associated with this club. Batsmen who score runs at will and regularly, coupled with bowlers who graft for wickets, even against some of the most boring sides I’ve witnessed, show the commitment and the desire this team has.
If I was a betting man I’d put money on the Double. Rutland League Title and Northants 3rd Division Champions.
Haway the Lads!
