Shock ! Horror !
Well it had to happen. You know when you’ve arrived as a major sporting venue when you get your
first streaker. The hastily re-arranged match at Newland on Saturday afternoon saw an unexpected
visitor in the “shapely” shape of someone call Letitia who apparently does this sort of thing
at grounds all over the county as, “a bit of fun”. Hopefully I can get the photos from our visiting supporter who
had his camera with him. Fingers crossed !!
Now.. all those first and second team players requesting a transfer to the Casuals and Singles
are just going to have to wait to see if Northend Lane gets a visit too!
URGENT – URGENT – URGENT
Next Weekend – 8th May – is POSITIVELY the final date for payment of tour deposits.
You need to get £35 to Rich Brown BEFORE NEXT WEEKEND or you will not be going !!!!
Top Catch !!!!
Rob Richards pulled off one of the most exciting catches seen at The Green for some time
on Sunday against Stratford. Diving up and to his left he clung on with both hands.
Unfortunately the camera was not rolling at the time, but we are able to supply footage
of Rob’s expertise with the bat in another of our “Oops” moments !
Sunday – 25th April
More glorious sunshine promised for home and away matches against Chaddesley Corbett.
Take a camera and send in any interesting photos, or comments or gossip
for publication on the website. Send it here.
Saturday – 24th April
Today we welcome visitors from Stratford (at The Green) and
Fladbury (at Newland) on what promises to be a beautiful day.
Both grounds are looking in superb condition, reflecting the hours of work put in by
the groundstaff and others. Northend Lane in particular looks better than it has at this
time of the season for many years. Today also gives everyone the chance to welcome
new players both from overseas and closer to home. Let’s hope we see some good cricket.
Match starts at 1.30pm.
No Match Report last week ?
Well…..in my personal opinion, it was all a little embarrassing.
Let’s put it down to a poorly prepared wicket.
Now that the Season is under way, remember that the weekend teams
will be published on the website as soon as they are available.
See the link in the menu bar on the left.
Check back regularly for the season’s Oops moments.
More Hot ( should that be cold ? ) Breaking News ……

able to drive for several days.
He was very proud of his scar and West Mercia Traffic Police sent a thank you card !!!
For more information and a VIVID description of his scar send emails to …
HOTLIPS . Duncan, you are becoming something of a celebrity.

13th April 2004
A new season starts.
Barnards Green Cricket Club look forward to the start of the new season with two fixtures this weekend.
On saturday a mixed eleven of potential first team players looking to secure a place in the first XI for the season
will visit Tewkesbury and are hoping for the weather to be kind to them .
Skipper Chris Smedley will be looking for some good performances from a team mixed with youth and experience
including a first XI debut for 14 year old Liam Paddock who shows great promise for the future.
On Sunday, another mixed team will entertain Birlingham at North End Lane which looks in tip top condition
thanks in the main to the efforts of Roy Mayo who has put in countless hours of pre season preparation.
And be sure to check the team sheets which will be made available on the web-site every week.
If you have anything you would like to contribute to the website, be it a match report, photographs or
just amusing anecdotes about team and individual performances, then email them to us and
we will do our best to find room. Please don’t send anything derogatory as it will not be published.
