Sat 25 Jun: 2nd XI away at Burbage and Easton Royal 2nd XI

Posted by John Carroll on

The weather forecast for Saturday afternoon looked pretty wet, but when the 2nd XI arrived at Burbage there was a hint of sunshine that gave the teams hope of sneaking in a game of cricket.

After Dave's recent abysmal luck at the coin toss, the job was handed over to Ali Goddard, who wasn't any better and called wrong as Burbage chose to field first on what looked like a bowler friendly pitch, especially with dark clouds lurking around.

Sat 18 Jun: 2nd XI home to Malmesbury 2nd XI

Posted by Geoff Dicker on

After the massive downpour on Friday evening it was touch and go as to whether the pitch would be fit but thanks to Kyle Oakley, Scott Mitchell and the rest of "grounds crew" the pitch although damp was playable.

The Malmesbury team arrived, won the toss (the epithet that our esteemed captain is a useless "person who tosses the coin" ran unfairly true as Dave called wrong again!), took one look at the wicket and skipper Rich Mosdell, who is also Malmesbury's groundsman, put us in to bat.

Ali Goddard and Kyle made an excellent start with KO going of like a rocket playing some typically powerful yet aesthetic drives towards the cloudy sky!

U15 V Malmesbury Wiltshire Youth Cricket League 19th June

Posted by Geoff Dicker on

It was an overcast and damp County Ground that welcomed Malmesbury U15's to Trowbridge.  We were playing on the same pitch that had seen Trowbridge 2's narrowly beaten by the same opposition on the Saturday; the wicket being somewhat akin to an "Old English Sticky" after a torrential downpour on Friday evening.  The pitch had however dried out as it hadn't rained overnight and was looking like a good track thanks to the attentions of Scott Mitchell and Kyle Oakley who had thankfully prepared the pitch for us.  We decided to start early as the forecast was looking grim for later.  Malmesbury won the toss and put us in - not surpisiningly as their Captain George Wadsworth had taken 4 wickets playing for their 2's the previous day.

3rd XI called off Saturday 18th June

Posted by John Carroll on

Unfortunately Urchfont 2nd XI cannot raise a team meaning that the 3rd XI fixture tomorrow, Saturday 18th June, has been called off. Good news for the 3rd XI is that with the superb organisation of Wiltshire Cricket they may have a friendly game if any other match in the WCCL is called off!

Sat 11 Jun: 2nd XI away at Purton 2nd XI

Posted by John Carroll on

I'll let you guess who won the toss on Saturday (hint: it wasn't Dave), but after a rain delay reduced the game to 40 overs per side, Trowbridge were going out to bat first. There had been stories in the week of Purton being a bowler's graveyard and steep downward hills at either end of the ground combined with an outfield that had been quickened by the rain didn't really light up the eyes of the bowlers.

Sat 4 Jun: 1st XI away at Marshfield 1st XI

Posted by John Carroll on

Trowbridge turned up to Marshfield, 30 minutes before the home team, and immediately set about with an intense warm up with the team determined to win at Marshfield for the first time in 3 years. The pitch, uncovered overnight, was as green as the outfield and extremely soft on top and with grey skies forecast it was a definite bowl first wicket.

Top Effort!

Posted by John Carroll on

A special mention to our very own Scott Mitchell for his superb form so far this season, in the last two games he has bowled two game changing spells, firstly opening the bowling against Marshfield and then last Saturday against Calne. His combined figures for the last two weeks are 18 overs, 5 maidens, just 54 runs and a whopping 12 wickets!

As shown below, Scott is now top of the WEPL bowling charts! Lets hope he can carry on taking wickets the rest of the season.
