1. Cricket is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy (Stephen Fry)
2. FOOTBALL offers the world clichés; RUGBY produces facial deformity; HOCKEY provides an acceptable outlet for psychotic violence; CRICKET alone breeds myths. More quotes here.


Tour to Malvern 1997

Sadly very few written records survive of this tour.  As per usual we all went to play an indoor game versus Graham Comforts merry men at Aston Villa followed by a local Ruby.  We stayed at the Colwall Park Hotel.  I do also remember it being very hot.  We all played croquet at the hotel before the Sunday game. Chazza borrowed Ian Wells Beemer and went for a drive and Rodders drove his car over a young lads bike (but shelled out for a new one.  good man.  Bike that is, not young lad).

Oh yes, someone told me I got a two ducks.  I don't believe it. Also, when I was run out (by Rodders who else) I got an almighty scape on my arm where it went in the gravel.  Their keeper then very kindly offered to urinate on me.  It's a proper treament, apparently.

The Saturday game was a 2 by 2 over match with Salix 89 for 7 then 96 all out versus a Pick up Team 112 for 7 and then 74 for 2
