End of Season Update

Our season is sadly drawing to its close. The league XI after a purple patch of three consecutive wins v Henley, Rowington and Great Alne came to a halt, losing v Leamington then beating Earlswood, followed by a defeat by Stratford Bards by 5 wickets. Now we approach our last 3 matches – only one at home on the 22nd August v Claverdon. Please come along and show your support for the remaining fixtures.

The Wednesday Wizards – a thrilling last ball tie away at Snitterfield, followed by a defeat by Campden Foods and then another last ball win at Temple Grafton and then a weakened side lost over at Offenham on a cold murky evening. Just one game left – away to TNC at Offchurch on 12th August and then it’s over until 2016.

Congratulations to England on their superb performane at Trent Bridge.
