Welcome to the Woking and Horsell Cricket Club website

Interclub 20\20 game
Horsell XI - 131-6
Woking XI - 134-4

 

What a good way to start the season, the sun was shining, the pitch was in excellent condition and the part of the outfield that Clancy Docwra would let us play on was in far better condition than it usually is at this stage of the season, or than it deserved to be for that matter, given the amount of rain we had over the winter and the state it was in four weeks ago.  Credit goes to you Mr Johnson.

There was a huge sense of anticipation for the first ball of the new season, added to by several new faces and a few not so new but returning faces.  It was a wide.  Some might say a fitting start.  Mind you, having said that, it brought one of our new 20/20 rules in to play, the free hit.  The field scattered far and wide ready for Tommo(!?) to launch the ball in to space.  The second ball was a wide.  Two free hits shouted the batting side, yes, no, wait, who knows.  Just the one.  The game ebbed and flowed and some people looked in cracking form already, Jerry and Afaque hit the ball sweetly before falling relatively cheaply while some others, Murphy and Thompson accumulated more steadily but scored more runs.  There were some good spells of bowling to, stand up Mr Storey and Mr Gibney. Some lusty blows from Saf and Paul Heckles brought the total up to a competitive 131-6 off 20 overs.

The Woking sides talented batting line up took a little while to get going.  Quaggy and Toby weren’t going to mess around, but it took them a little while to adjust to some of the bowling. Batting wasn’t made easy by Ross who had forgotten over the winter that cricket isn’t played on 30 yard wickets but once he did he settled in to a good spell of bowling.  He was well backed up by Damo and Saf who bowled extremely well.  The Woking side looked under pressure with seven overs to go and 70 required but two of the new boys, Jarred Hubble and Dave French saw Woking home by six wickets. 

On to burgers, snakey B and a disappointing World Cup Final.  It had been a good day however.

Thanks to Clive for umpiring, Erika for scoring, Gibbers and Roger for coming up with the idea and organising the day.  Rogers mate Gary who stood in as wicketkeeper, Damo for the music and Ben for doing the BBQ.  We’re off and running.
