Sat 20 Aug: 2nd XI away at Malmesbury 2nd XI

Posted by Geoff Dicker on

The recent fine weather had unfortunately come to an end and the "2's" were all expecting this match to be called off as we set off to Malmesbury's splendid ground which has the reputation of being one of the more challenging places on the circuit to locate.

Apart from cricket little did we expect that factors such as mathematics, geography and of course meteorology would have such an important effect on the outcome.

Sat 13 Aug: 2nd XI home to Purton 2nd XI

Posted by Geoff Dicker on

As our players gathered on a pristine afternoon at the County Ground we wondered if this game would be close given that our two previous victories against Westbury and Winsley had been by tight margins?

Purton was the opposition this time and were just above us in the league table.  There were some familiar faces missing this week due to first team call-ups and it being the holiday season.  However this meant that we had the pleasure of two of Trowbridge's finest players promoted from the thirds: Phil Rutland and Graham "G-dawg" Booth.  In addition, our normal correspondent "Mr Essex" – Jamie Adkins was watching another match on South London!

As is now the norm Ali Goddard called correctly and decided to bat on what looked like an "absolute road" for batting.  (Rule 1: if you win the toss always bat.  Rule 2: if you're thinking of doing otherwise refer to Rule 1 with apologies to Steve Waugh!).

Sat 30 Jul: 2nd XI home to Winsley 2nd XI

Posted by John Carroll on

A second won toss in a row for Ali Goddard meant that Trowbridge would be batting first on a very well prepared pitch. There was a little bit in it for the bowlers though as some swing from the Winsley opening bowlers had Matt Dicker groping for the the ball a couple of times. The in form Ali Goddard was not to be deterred though as he battled through and scored the majority the runs in this opening partnership of 77.
