Bunch of old women....


Duncan Brightman kindly forwarded a picture taking on playing field in 1977. Apparently this was a previous incarnation of LSVCC....seem to be some familiar youngish looking faces !!

Mumbai trials....


U15 trials for Mumbai team at Wankede stadium...followed by Mumbai versions of club cricket in front of 'VT'....overlapping pitches, no marked boundaries, all and sundry walking on pitches during games, makeshift pavilions to shade from sun...all made LSVCC look like Lords. But by God were they playing good cricket !! Olly itching to play at both venues....

India touring....


LSVCC winter side-tour to India....cricket played in Chrapungee (wettest place on the planet except LS), Himalayas (some of highest cricket grounds), Kolkata (including visit to Eden Gardens, 2nd largest cricket ground in world), and ending up on beaches in Goa (our youngest representative impressing all locals)....final stopoff in Mumbai where I'm sure we can find some more cricket related activity...maybe should send full touring side soon !!...Happy New year to all back home.
