21st July 2017
Two more matches to report on, both ending in defeat, although last weekend’s game at Whitchurch On Thames was a lot closer than it looked like being early in the home side’s innings. Report to follow.
Our match on Sunday at home to Chekendon has been called off, so our next game will be on 30th July, at home to Purley On Thames.
3rd July 2017
Our recent matches have brought us a poor run of results, with our three matches since the loss at Englefield also ending in defeats.
We were well placed to beat Goring On Thames on 19 June, but a good sixth wicket partnership took the home side to within sight of victory, which they achieved by 4 Wickets.
At Cold Ash on 25 June another swift batting collapse left us well short of a tough target of over 190, and yesterday at home to Reading Lawyers we recovered from 26 for 3 to 161 all out, but were still a way short of a competitive target. The visitors reached their target with 8 wickets and plenty of overs in hand.
Our match against the Sinton XI next Sunday has been called off, so we are without a match until 16 July, when we travel to Whitchurch On Thames.
17th June 2017
Three results to report on since the last update, two wins followed by one heavy loss.
On 28th May Chieveley were the visitors to Wasing Park, and the outcome was a 3 wicket win for us (it would have been 5 wickets but we were fielding only nine players). The loss of a couple of quick wickets in our run chase was a definite wobble, but it came too late to cause too many problems.
On 4 June we visited Mortimer and won by a large margin, although Mortimer were suffering from the absence of a few players and had limited bowling options.
Last weekend, we visited Englefield, and lost by a large margin, although we were suffering from the absence of a few players and had limited bowling options. Where have I heard that before?
Fuller reports to follow.
Tomorrow we are on our travels again, visiting Goring on Thames.
Also last weekend we had a presence at an event in Aldermaston: “Celebrating Aldermaston Past & Future”. As part of the exhibit on the history of the Wasing Estate, our display showed the rich history of cricket in Aldermaston. I’ll be adding this material to the History page of the website soon.
28th May 2017
Last Sunday heralded the arrival of summer, and naturally our match against Ashford Hill was cancelled. The week before we achieved our second win of the season, beating Theale and Tilehurst by 9 Wickets at Wasing Park.
Today we are at home to Chieveley, the match starting at 2.00 pm.
11th May 2017
We’re now two Sunday afternoons into the season, and have had the annual opener against the Wasing XI and our first proper fixture against Bradfield. The Wasing XI match resulted in a win for the visitors (all 15 of them), and a scorer with acute hypothermia, while the first ‘scorebook legit’ match of the season ended in a 29 run win for all 9 of us. Reports on the Match News page.
Our next match is home to Theale & Tilehurst this coming Sunday, starting at 2.00 pm.
20th February 2017
There’s just the merest hint of distant spring at the moment, so the website has been dusted off, and I’ve started giving it the beginnings of a Spring Clean (Look! New menu!), courtesy of some new shiny new fangled software. More updates to come over the next few weeks.
In the meantime, pre-season nets have started, at Bradfield College on Sunday evenings, starting at 7.00 pm. We welcome new players so if you fancy some friendly Sunday cricket, whatever your standard, you’re welcome to join us at Bradfield College in the run up to the new season. (Who needs the IPL anyway?!)
