Today we welcome Martley 2nd’s to Northend Lane and Kidderminster
Victoria to Newland. The forecast is good and so we hope to see as many
spectators and supporters as possible at both matches. The 1st’s hope to
maintain their excellent early season form. The Singles travel to Cutnall Green.
Oh.. and happy anniversary to the 3rd’s tea lady.

Clean Sweep !!
The club was in high spirits on Sunday evening following a clean sweep with all three
of the Sunday teams winning. The Firsts and Seconds defeated Taverners whilst, thanks to some
determined batting by Derek Goodman and Marek Wajzer, the Casuals beat Abberley with
just 6 balls of their innings remaining. Cricket’s great when you win !!!
Match reports will follow shortly.
What a match it was ..!!!!
The Green 268
Belbroughton………. Yes also 268
Cyril – 132
Patrick Jelley .. wicket off the last ball to save the draw.
I told you to be there.. you should have been there.
Watch out for the match report!
Saturday 22nd May … early.
It’a another beautiful day and cricket is calling!
Today we have the 2nds at The Green welcoming Enville whilst Cyril’s 3rds
finally get started at Newland against Belbroughton.
Bring the picnic and the wine and don’t forget the sun-cream !
Well done everyone involved in the 15 over “slog” against Taverners on Monday
which resulted in a highly satisfactory victory for The Green.
The match is REPEATED on Thursday ( 20th May ) at The Green and we’d love to see as many
Supporters as possible again.
Suggested answers/questions for Brain Teaser Time are coming in.
No… the question’s not “what are Letitia The Streaker’s Vital Statistics”
Quote of the weekend from Singles game at Newland.
(Steve Metcalfe and Phil Spencer putting on 70 in 5 overs, Steve Freeman umpiring, everyone else looking for balls)
Metty: “ Sam my hamstring is feeling tight”
Sam: “Don’t worry Metty I won’t ask you to bowl and Engine won’t ask you to run!”
GREAT FUN !!
Great entertainment at The Green when we beat Kidderminster Victoria off the last
ball of the match. Needing 30 runs to win off 3 overs we got ‘em.
Well batted Jonno – ( must have been the vision of impending transfer to the Casuals ).
Shot of the match was Tim’s six into the old skittle alley! Marek have I spelled ALLEY correctly?
Don’t miss the full match report !
BRAIN TEASER TIME
If the answer is 22.214.171.124.4.4 then what’s the question ?
Clue.. it occurred in the Sunday seconds’ match against Kidderminster Victoria.
Answers, or should that be questions, by email please to the usual address.
Ps…. Richard W Brown and members of his fan club may not enter the competition !
Complete the sequence 3,4,5, , Oh sorry, that’s not the question, that’s how many
runs the seconds were chasing at Kiddy !!
Change of name
Following a re-think by the committee over the new colour scheme for the main bar area,
we will in future be using the name Barnards Beige Cricket Club.
Steve Metcalfe has kindly agreed to have all of the kit changed. The gas central-heating
patio heaters which were against the patio wall have had to be removed as people kept
tripping over the pipes.
COLTS – A word of advice.
Don’t wear boxer-shorts to nets sessions.
The photos of Letitia from Newland have arrived. Check back later.
Oops !!!!!! You can’t play the same shot to every ball Jono!!
The profiles are rolling in thick and fast !! Some surprising submissions !!!
Green's junior nets for 7-13 year olds are being held on Wednesdays, 6.30pm till 8pm, and will go on through till late July.
