It's A New Season

A beautiful clear sunny day albeit with a chilling breeze really brought to life the challenge of league cricket.

A very dry spring produced decent pitches with groundsman having to be on top form.

 

I started at Maybank CC, a new ground for me and thanks to satnav I was in time to see new Captain Matthew Humpleby play a glorious back foot drive through extra cover.

The ground is large set in fields, photogenic, impressive. The score as I left, 20 odd for 1.

 

Hartshead Moor have transformed their ground with some serious hard work, it looks terrific but a low scoring match belied appearances. Congs 85 all out. I left after observing the tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh in addition to chatting to many old friends. Good crowd.

 

The biggest crowd of the day was gathered at the Amber Cars Britannia ground where we were playing Methley CC and we had made over 200. Much time and effort has been spent on adhering to the COVID restrictions and with whole ground looking magnificent, I really felt that life was getting back to something like normal. At 1730 I had to leave for a family event but as we took the third wicket Methley were 68 I hope we won but could I find the details on my iPad? Surprise, surprise.

I returned home to change full of hope and fears for the 2021 season.
