The visit of Oakridge usually means a stern test and usually a Robbins hundred in double quick time and an early visit to the pub. But this visit was rather different… The skipper lost the toss (as usual) and Sherston were inserted. A good start from Kutchera and Cartwright, thanks in part to an injury to Tremellen’s hero, Oakridge’s Ted … Read More

A well battled performance by the team unfortunately led to a third loss on the trot. After winning the toss and putting Adlestrop into bat, we started well with Adlestrop 0-1 off 4 overs! But the combination of some untidy bowling, poor fielding and good batting meant that Aldestrop ended up on 222-3 off of their 40 overs, with Simon … Read More

Saturday 2.15pm came around this week with a fair amount of optimism and confidence from two wins out of two. One comfortable and one not so comfortable.  SMCC had been inserted by the Stow  skipper on what looked like a belter of a deck! Unfortunately, like too often in life, looks were deceiving….
