Magna Scorch Spye Park!

SMCCLeave a Comment

Saturday saw the visit of Spye park to Pinkney Park. On a perfect summer day with a flat track and fast outfield on offer, the bowlers of both teams were willing their respective captains to win the toss and bat. Sherston’s J.K duly obliged.

After gearing up for our big top of the table clash against Erlstoke last week which was canceled due to the rain, we managed to get a full game in against Goatacre 3rds. On an extremely green top, JK won the toss and decided to have a bat. James Harmer (39) and Chris Fisk (33) walked to the crease, after … Read More

The promise of youth

SMCCLeave a Comment

Saturday saw a rather youthful looking SMCC team travel to the picturesque Buscot park. Skipper JK lost the toss and Sherston was invited to take the field on a surprisingly firm wicket given the recent inclement weather. Deprived of our regular opening bowling duo it was Archie and Simon entrusted with the new ball, a mixture of Archie’s pace and … Read More

A good all-round performance

On a very warm first day of summer an athletic Sherston (Archie) took on a mid-table Biddestone 3rds. JK lost the toss and was asked to bat first. Biddestone had done their homework and seen that our batting was a little fragile early season. The pitch map report came back that there was a little live grass with a soft … Read More

A Sherston Rout

Sherston Magna registered their 1st league win of the season against a depleted Bathford CC, who only brought 10 players with them on the day.

Purton post 112 all out and Sherston struggle to 70 in response. Hurricane Hannah raised the curtain on Division 5 of the 2019 Wiltshire County Cricket League at Pinkney Park.
