Went to Surrey v Essex in the Twenty20 a couple of weeks ago. Surrey were rubbish.

Went to Surrey v Hampshire in the Twenty20 on Wednesday. There were moments of excitement and, for a few overs, it looked like it might be a close game then Lumb hit loads off not many for Hampshire and they strolled the game.

Going to Surrey v Middlesex in the Twenty20 on Friday. I'm not too optimistic. Unsure

Went to watch rugby league. South London Storm versus St.Albans Centurions. Total farce to begin with as the visitors turned up without their kit. Start delayed an hour waiting for it to arrive. SLS won 42-10 in a match of unbalanced sides. Still, at least it was a day out with lots of hoppers present.

A couple of weeks ago i strolled up to watch some Rugby League as the Hemel Stags beat the Liverpool Buccaneers 38-24. Not a bad match all round but Hemel were just too strong in the end.
Then yesterday i spent the afternoon watching Boxmoor II lose again, this time to Letchworth VI. Letchworth won the toss and put the home side into bat where they scored 189-7 off 53 overs. Then the visitors replied with 190-6 off 41.2 overs. Boxmoor II's are now very much in trouble near the bottom of division ten.
A nice day out though, with good beer and the rain virtually never interfered at all.
Next Saturday i've slated myself to watch some first eleven ECB cricket, and will travel to either Harpenden against Hemel Hempstead or Tring Park against Slough. I havn't decided yet and the weather will be a big factor.
to be honest i'm generally bored to tears and cant wait for the pre-season to start. July 12th for us.

Hi Edge Raceway - Conference League. Buxton 65 Rye House 26. Admission 12 with programme. Att c.100.

Located a few miles south of Buxton off the main road to Leek, this has to be the most isolated "stadium" I've ever attended. High up on the moors and accessible off a single track road, it's actually one of a pair of stadia; next door is what appears to be a well-appointed stadium with grandstand and floodlights. This is now used for stock-cars but Buxton Speedway did ride here for their first two seasons back in the mid-nineties. The new speedway track is surrounded by a hotch-potch of container wagons and sheds which provide a small bar/clubroom, club shop and toilet block. A mobile catering van provided the usual greasy stuff but there are no stands or other spectator cover at all. In fact on this wild day most spectators chose to sit in their cars which can be parked right round the track.
Not a contest as such as the visitors only provided one heat winner and that in the penultimate race though there were several admirable attempts by riders of both teams to demolish the safety fence. Bloody freezing - I can't wait to get back to the winter sport.

MCC are on their annual Jersey tour, put back a few weeks because of the World Division 5 held here in late May.

Saw them play v Victoria College on Saturday and today they beat Jersey "A" by 4 wickets. I am scoring their match v Jersey "B" tomorrow and then umpiring Devon v Channel Islands Over 50's League match on Saturday.

Complete contrast to when me and Bob L Hatt went up the other week - I got sunburn. They do fall off quite frequently up there though don't they?

Today went to Cas Vegas 22 Pie Eaters 22, 16 in, 9 for kids. Very entertaining, could have gone either way in the last seconds.

RE : BUXTON SPEEDWAY

12 inc prog.

Just to get this right, it is only 9 to get in, 2 for a prog and 1 to take your own heated exec box into the track. Although I like you, chose to stand out in a bleep freezing wet gale.

Went to a Twenty/20 game a couple of weeks back - Yorkshire v Notts. Always like to get myself up to Headingley for the cricket at least once a season.
Still recovering today from going to watch Halifax v Whitehaven (38-14) which sent us top of the league again. Laugh I'm a season ticket holder at Fax so only miss about 2/3 games a season and will be going to watch Salford City Reds v Fax this Friday evening. Top of the table clash , and the thing that makes Halifax's presence at the top of the league more impressive is the fact that we (fax) are still part time players where-as Celtic Crusaders, Widnes and Salford are all on full time contracts Tongue

Rugby League for me to Andy, Went to Claygate to see Elmbridge Eagles 54 London Skolars 30 No Programme Att: about 30 - 2 tries in the opening 10 minutes from the Home side decided the game as Elmbridge never really looked threatened after that leading 30-12 at the break. Place has been smartened up since my last visit a couple of years ago when Grass was about 2 Foot high and Rusty Goalposts obviously no game played that day!

Friday 27th June 2008 @ The Willows
Salford City Reds 30-24 Halifax RLFC
Great game, absolutely abysmal opening performance by the Fax, literally handed a couple of tries to Salford and was looking like being a cricket score at one point. Fantastic second half by Fax had the Reds attempt drop goals twice to seal the points, but in the end part-time Fax still get a bonus point and just hang onto second place.

28th June - Brearley Park Old Whittington Chesterfield
Whittington Wanderers CC 2nd XI 102ao
Sheffield Zingari 1st XI 103-4

Only 6 with the bat (continuing my terrible run of form), 1-13 with the ball. Our innings was only the 2nd time we've passed 100 this season. Young, inexperienced side that I am alledgedly supposed to be showing how to play!

Tues 1st July.............

Cricket groundhopping now ......!!!!

Lancashire 2nd v Durham 2nd at Haydock Cricket Club.

A very strong Durham 2nd controlled this 50 overs game from the start bowling Lancs out for 112 in the 47th over, highlight of the Lancs innings was a huge straight (ish) six from a promising young lad named Luke Procter.

Durham's reply was rapid until they reached 105-1, which some 7 or 8 overs later had become 107-5 !
A very warm day on this basic but well set out ground..........
Admission.....FREE, Scorecard 50p.

Assuming there were all-weather races and turf races on the card, then you've ticked off two 'pitches'. But to count all three 'pitches' you have to do a jumps meeting.

Oxford Cavaliers 48 Redditch Ravens 18

West Midlands Conference

No Programme - club shop up and running selling Cavalier items.

Played at Marston Ferry.

Att 45 to 50 (a number stayed in the bar at half-time as we had a shower).

Good game, should have been closer but Redditch made a few mistakes from kick-offs, also they started to question a number of "sir's" decisions.

Oxford upto 2nd, Bristol will win the league, anyone of Oxford, Telford, Coventry "B" and Redditch for 2nd spot. Swindon and Wolves will fight out the wooden spoon.

Coventry have a game in hand on Oxford and can go 2nd, but still have to play at Oxford. Hopefully they will have a 1st team game that day, the other year the 1st team game was called off and they brought 10 of the 1st team to Oxford.
