Kyle Oakley wins OSCA

Kyle Oakley wins an OSCA 

No not the small statue type Oscar for acting - he could probably win one of those as well! - but Trowbridge's Kyle Oakley was presented with an award for Outstanding Services to Cricket at the prestigious Wiltshire Cricket awards in Devizes on September 9th.  This was for all of the hard work he has put in preparing pitches, cutting the outfield and always being available to make last minute pitch adjustments.

So a well done to Kyle for a richly deserved award - next stop Lords?

Trowbridge U15's clinch WYCL league title

TROWBRIDGE U15's CLINCH LEAGUE TITLE

The Wiltshire Youth Cricket League (WYCL) has now confirmed that Trowbridge U15's have won the Region 2 league title.  We also finished joint third in the Bath & District League and all this with a core squad of only 7 players.  

Therefore a big thanks to all players & parents who had to put up with my constant badgering about team selection, our "overseas" players from Winsley & Warminster, our coaches Chris Dicker, Sam Julyan & Kev Wosika, and our U13 squad who always stepped into the gaps in the team.

Sat 27 Aug: 2nd XI home to Burbage and Easton Royal 2nd XI

Posted by Geoff Dicker on

This fixture was the "big game" of the season which could decide the promotional prospects of both teams.  However from the colour of the sky around the County Ground when both teams assembled suggested that the weather would have an input as it had the previous week.

Ryan Salter promoted again to Captain called correct and elected to bat.

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!).
