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.

Xmas 13 Dec 2012


An indoor game between Padders Lads and Young Spillanes Whippersnappers. Padders lads batted first and racheted the score up rapidly, with CK1 and the eponymous Captain both hitting shedloads to get 163.

Young Spillanes Boys then managed a fairly feeble 122 in reply. Several injured hands from dropped catches also predictably ensured during the game.. that ball stings!

Thence it was off to the Kennington Tandoori where a whole load of people turned up and prizes were given out as follows:

Player of the Year: Steve-O (yes, really!)

Lurpak: Young Spillane with special reference to Blenheim

Best new player: C-Wrench

Best bowler: Andy Spurr
