Loss of the week...
Has anyone found a drinks bottle at Newland?
Robbie Tyler, ( coming on to bowl ), throws drinks bottle into the hedge .... and loses it!!!!
23rd June 2007 - Exciting Victory at Newland.
On paper, it seemed that an under-strength 4th team were in for a tough time when they entertained
unbeaten league leaders Tenbury Wells. Being bowled out for 115 in 44 overs did not bode well.
But ......a combination of team spirit, youthful exuberance and a few mature heads saw The Green
bowl out the opposition for just 51 runs.
The 1st XI again carved out a comfortable winning draw whilst the 2nds and 3rds lost. Watch for the
full details on the reports page.
trophy of the season...
The Green were victorious on Monday 11th June agains Stoke Prior in the Carnival Cup.

26th May 2007 - 1sts go top.
More runs for Liam Paddock (95*) and 7 wickets for Andy Ford gave us victory over Oldswinford and see
us move to the top of the second division table. Meanwhile, the 3rds gained their first win of the season at
Hanley and the 2nds and 4ths gained creditable winning draws.
19th /20th May 2007 - Another ton for Kev Golder (112*) and five wickets from Andy Ford gave the 1sts
a convincing win over Belbroughton which leaves us just 3 points behind leaders Lye. With no league
matches this Sunday, Marek's Marrauders have a friendly at Northend Lane and will be glad of your support.
12th May 2007 - Congratulations to Chris Smedley (4-27)and Tim Williams (5-58) who were in the wickets again as
the firsts overcame Netherton. The weather washed out the other fixtures for The Green.
A great start to the season saw wins for the firsts and seconds against Wormelow and Monmouth with
early season centuries for Mettie and Kev Golder, Liam Paddock and Dave Knapper. Following on from
an evening league victory over Ramblers this raised expectations and sprits for the coming weeks.
5th May saw victories for three of our Saturday teams. So, lots of great cricket in prospect over the
coming months. Details of all of the fixtures, results and match reports will be available on the website,
