first visit to the club was thought a success by all concerned (hopefully
by Sky, too) and consisted of a pub quiz ably hosted by Jamie Bowman and mini-interviews
with the first team and members in the garden.

hoping for a great turnout with plenty of vocal support. A barbeque has been
four Saturday teams now have wins under their collective belt. The 2s had an
especially good start and the 1s and 4s have picked things up after slow
3s have played two less games than everyone else at present, having one
rescheduling and one abandonment due to rain, but a strong side will surely
pick things up before long.
Sunday 11 has started well with two draws and a win. Good to have you back,
have been several notable performances in games across the teams so far. Those
receiving a cyber iced-bun include (deep breath):
Moore - 67
Poskitt - 5-60
Bellis - 60
Kelly - 6-50
Pownall - 56
Cockrell 86, 57
Brown 5-41 (Technically that should’ve been six)

much* deliberation the award for April goes to Hazo for his unbeaten start to
the year! Only one win but in the other 2 games he was only a ball for victory
in each. Max “Ramesh” Hill
came a close 2nd with 2 wins from 3,
the panel deciding a disappointing loss to Huyton was enough to sway the
decision Hazo’s way…
homo-erotic team rivalries between the first and seconds gathers pace as we enter
the busy May period with 6 separate point scoring opportunities on offer in The
Player’s League. However, it’s
bad news for mankind everywhere at the moment as a Bear is running away with it.
a promising start for the humans, ably led by Pete Kelly, Dave “The Bear”
Poskitt has devoured everything in his path to dominate the competition to date
with an impressive 69 points, over double that of his nearest rival Senior
Junior Baird, who has 34 points after last Saturday’s heroics. Pete Kelly is next
on 33 points with Alright Robbie & Chimp tied for 4th on 31.
better news in the 6’s League however, with Nick Cockrell leading the way with
3 lusty maximums to his name, closely pursued by Phil “Chimp” Calrow
and Moore Out with 2 apiece. Commiserations to Matty Phyd
for his magnificent Sunday cup strike which unfortunately DOES NOT COUNT!
Cockrell has started a Facebook
page for the club for the hip cats in the club. To
join get in touch with Nick with your email address for discussions on whose is
the campest picture and whether a certain member of the club is ‘hot or not’.

congratulate Dave Poskitt for winning the 1st Division’s bowling
