Gritty threes go down against Hardwick

A few too many expensive overs meant that Hardwick & Caldecote II’s total was just too much for the threes to chase, despite a narrowly-avoided hat-trick from Mo. However, the green shoots of some batting form were appearing, as we managed our second biggest total of the season so far (and out-scored both the first and second teams!).

3s transformed with win over Balsham II

Tight bowling and a solid performance in the field (a complete transformation from the previous two weeks – keep it up guys!) gave the batsmen time for a considered run-chase, finishing just in time to avoid the worst of the rain.

Two for the price of one as 3s fall to Ickleton

A premier-quality batting collapse saw the 3s bowled out for 53. When Ickleton knocked off the runs in 8.5 overs, we weren’t quite ready to go home, so we took them on again in a friendly T20.

Intra-club game on 30 April - All welcome

Bar Hill have defaulted on the planned 3rd team Minor league play-off.

The plan is to have an intra-club game to kick off the season with as many people as we can muster.

There will be no match fees charged, but that also means we won't be providing teas - bring a plate to share if you can manage it.

Anyone interested in playing please be at the Great Cambourne Clubhouse for 12:30, or drop by later in the afternoon for a chat and a nose around the new pavilion.
