PTGCC 152-1 off 19 (D Graham 79* T Bradford 49*)
Them 2 points
Us 29 points

A view from Stephen J Powell….

A good toss to lose this one, so Junior Mason obliged by doing just that, which gave their captain a difficult decision – start with 9 in the field and take advantage of any early movement, or bat and have a bit of a go at ...

“I thought you batted brilliantly today. Unlike my total f###ing sh#t” The brilliant batting referred to, was that of Richard Royce, who’s magnificent 140 not out at Denham was the batting highlight of the summer so far. That brutal ...

Jonny Carpenter
Jon Smith
Simon Mason
Toby Robinson
Steve Powell
Jeff Morris
Liam Wetherall

An odd game this one, not least because we won it. Jon Smith, a few days after claiming on Facebook that he couldn’t play cricket any more, battered an unbeaten 75. Simon Mason got out first ball ...

Tony Liaqat
Jeff Morris
Elliot Scott
Jonny Carpenter
Liam Wetherall
Richard O’Hagan (c)

I got told that my reports this season have been too long, so here goes:

We lost a game we should’ve won easily. We bowled and fielded better than we have done all season. There were two run outs. Holford (grumpily) and Smith (gleefully) took great catches. Elliot proved that he can bowl seam ...

Penn & Tylers Green 289-2 (52 overs) Dow Ding 101*, Bentley 91*
Taplow 166 all out (42.2 overs)

Match won, 30 points.

A view from Stephen J Powell….

Two weeks of heat and no rain, produced a water logged pitch after Steady spent most of the week watering the square. I don’t really care anyway as we stuffed the once formidable Taplow so it was irrelevant what the pitch was like.

Having won the toss their captain wanted to make ...

It has taken me four evenings of drinking before I can face writing this, so here goes.

After our best batting performance of the season, it was just our luck that our opponents chose to put in an even better one. ...

Penn & Tylers Green 208 for 9 (52 overs) Royce 40
Englefield 204 all out (47.3 overs) Morris 6-53

Match won, 30 points.

After two weeks off due to rain, Penn & Tylers Green 2nd XI re-acquainted themselves with Englefield, this time in the delightful setting of Englefield Park (just off junction 12 of the M4). A round trip of some 70 miles didn’t dampen spirits, and with a super game of cricket in-between all the driving it ...

I’m writing this whilst the pain is still fresh, if only so that I don’t have to go through it all again at a later date. The easy runs given away. ...
