This weekend we have chance to put the powers of recovery of our “young men” to the test as we entertain Weoley Hill on
Saturday and then have home and away fixtures against Bewdley on Sunday.Fresh from tour in Bolton there will no doubt
be much tale swapping amongst players and supporters alike. Another beautiful Autumn, ( yes it is Autumn ), weekend is
forecast so come along and enjoy the sunshine.
NEWS FROM TOUR - Read the report
So far, so average……
Our intrepid band came second to Hindley St Peters and had to seek solace in a tapas bar on Sunday. Monday’s
match against Astley Bridge was unfortunately called off by the opposition. Finding themselves with a spare
afternoon the team decided to follow top-tourist Max to the nearest Yates’ Wine Lodge. It’s a hard life on tour!
The Green’s first win on tour came against Heywood on Wednesday with a victory of some 100 runs
followed by a second success on Thursday against Grimsargh. Meanwhile The Green’s Groundsman appears
to have taken a liking to the local Northern Brew and Yates’ are running low on Chardonnay.
Is there a Doctor in the house !!!!!
3rds Confirmed as Champions
The 3rds have won division seven without having to play as Nomads are unable to field a side.
Congratulations to Cyril and everyone else involved.!
Barnards Green cricket Club rounded off the end of the season in fine style by bringing home yet another league title.
With the first eleven already crowned champions of Division 3, the third eleven have now taken the honours in division 7.
Needing just 10 points to clinch the title, they picked up 24 when Worcester Nomads dropped out at the last minute unable to raise a side.
Captain Cyril Dean said, 'Whilst it is disappointing to clinch the title due to a team not honouring its fixture,
we felt confident that we would win the game anyway. We have had a team of experience mixed with youth all season
and the youngsters have certainly not let us down. It is testament to the clubs youth policy that we have so many
coming through into senior level cricket and all bodes well for next season.'
The firsts finished the season off in style with a 5 run victory at struggling Rushwick whilst the seconds
also had a resounding victory winning by 54 runs with 16 year old Sam Spencer taking 5 for 21
This could put them 2nd in their league. The singles however came unstuck at Stone and will finish mid table in division 5.
This week a party of 30 will tour Lancashire and are based in Bolton.
Weekend Action - 28th / 29th August.
With the firsts and seconds promoted to the dizzy heights of Division Two and the Singles safe,
all eyes will be on the 3rds on Saturday as they take on Nomads at Newland in an effort to secure
their championship title.
Some 14 points separate us from the second place team and obviously with a maximum of 24 points
at stake each week then anything can happen. Get along and support Cyril’s boys if you can.
Meanwhile the 1st and 2nd teams take on Rushwick whilst the singles travel to Stone.
Oh… and something called TOUR kicks off on Sunday!
PROMOTION AT LAST!
The Green’s win over Oldswinford gives us the points needed to join division two next season. Well done everyone involved.
