Kimbolton Castle Rotary Challenge....

Another glorious day for challenge set down by Kimbolton Castle Rotary Club. Some confusion as to who was in Rotary and who would play for Village side, but by tea each team had 11 players (or participants). Rotary side batted well to reach 117, including fine knock from CS (why he doesn't do that for LSVCC I don't know), and glimpses of fine cricketers from the past. Captain Moss missed out again trapped in front of stumps.....blamed umpire and the pitch. Newcomer Charles bowled well for three wickets (including near hatrick), and Ben T caught fine catch of his own bowling. Dad T dropped sitter behind stumps (sorry OJ). However, spectacles needed for PP who failed to spot that CS was 3 feet out of crease when bails whipped off....

LSVCC batted solidly, including undefeated 30 from CB, and a few lusty blows from NM. Big guns lower down order not needed, and trophy secured at same time as Ashes victory at Oval with MT and skipper JH still at crease. All retired to Crown for pork, trimmings and well earned refreshments. David Watson, president of Kimbolton Castle Rotary presented unique trophy to skipper, and man of the match to Tony Moss, captain of the losing side....challenge to be resumed next year.

Lots more pictures uploaded into photoalbum....

St Neots Methodists....

Searing heat for evening game against St Neots Methodists....standin-in skipper (AT) opted for shade, while opening bats Moss and Shaw opted for cool test match style approach. OJ sent in to up the pace, should have been out twice on boundary, and eventually miscued for disappointing single figure score. AT rescued innings with decent 36 (retired) but booed off pitch for running out daughter (MT). Scrambled to 96 runs off 16 overs, despite widespread confusion on last ball. LSVCC fielding and bowling excellent all round....OJ made up for dismal batting, and spin twins PP and OT kept scores down. Sprinkling of wickets for all, and a good last over victory for home side.....

Logo....


Finalising a logo for shirts and maybe caps next season...have a look at images below and let me know which one you prefer. The basis for the design is from 109 squadron shield, from whom we originally borrowed the motto 'primi hastati'. I think left one for shirts right one for caps ?
