Happy New Year

We’re now in 2018 so the season is but 3 months away.  Most weekend fixtures and a good number of the T20s have been set up and the new fixture list will be on this website in the next couple of weeks.  Meanwhile, here’s the tour dates for this year – we only stay away the Saturday Night.

May 5/6 – Holkham (Norfolk) and Jesus College Cambridge.  Travel up to England’s finest county by minibus from Stevenage station and stay and a hotel in Fakenham.  Holkham Hall is possibly the grandest mansion in Norfolk and ground is beautiful, the wicket in tip top condition.  The home team are a very friendly bunch and a couple of us Norfolk exiles even speak the language.  On the Sunday morning we drive over to Cambridge to take on the college in just as good a setting.  Perhaps the wicket is even better, and again the locals are friendly.  So bring your A game on and off the pitch.  Likely cost for transport, match fees and bed & breakfast around £85 all in.

June 23/24 – Ardington and E&W Hendred.  Over the past few years we’ve been playing a ‘test match’ over the 2 days and we’ve had some great times.  However, we’re making a change this season and playing another local team on another fine ground on the Sunday.  Tales from this tour are in the odd realm of fact being stranger than fiction.  On this occasion it’s a train to Didcot and the captain will get lifts organised.  Total cost around £65.
