Magic Magna thwarted by rain

Harry StevensLeave a Comment

On a day forecasting frequent and thundery showers, we drove through 20 minutes of heavy rain to arrive at an unexpectedly sunny Longborough, where a grassy, soft wicket with a Lords-style slope and dramatic undulations on one half of the outfield promised an interesting contest. ‘A good toss to lose’, we thought, so JK promptly did just that. Longborough chose … Read More

George and Iggy then started to turn the screw and the run-rate started … Read More

With black clouds circling, winds blowing, storms threatening and Tina Turner’s words ringing true that all we wanted was life beyond the Thunderdome, your intrepid reporter entered the appropriately named Memorial Ground a mere one over late having travelled some three hours from London via Bath. Wondering whether I was ever gonna change, I had taken the liberty of changing … Read More

Young Gun Emerges

Dave NelsonLeave a Comment

On the hottest day of the year so far, South Cerney travelled to Pinkney Park with the unenviable record of having not won a match at the ground in recent memory, if ever. With the toss won by the home side, and with both the wicket and weather dictating a simple choice of ‘bat first’, all looked good for a … Read More

Pegged back

Chris LovellLeave a Comment

Sherston Magna had a fine win against one of division 1’s stronger teams on Saturday 27th May.
