Cambourne shines in Wimpole cricket re-enactment

It’s been many years since the thwack of leather on willow has been heard on the lawns of Wimpole Hall, but on Sunday the original cricket pitch was brought back to life with a Georgian re-enactment match. Players from across Cambourne CC, from juniors as young as seven to representatives of all three senior teams, joined in the event organised by National Trust Sports and Cambs Cricket.

Threes respectable in defeat vs Saffron Walden

With only 10 men, beating the team at the top of the table was always going to be a big ask, but we made a good fist of it, and kept ourselves in the game to take home 6 bonus points.

Threes squeak a win as Mo skittles Granta

They say catches win matches, but despite putting down well over ten chances in the field, the threes still emerged victorious against Granta IV. Mostly thanks to Mo taking matters into his own hands and taking seven wickets with the ball, plus a run-out contribution.

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.

2nd XI team beat Steeple Morden comfortably

The 2nd XI got off to a great start in the 2016 season with a comprehensive victory over Steeple Morden by 162 runs.

Slow start for 3s – outclassed by Saffron Walden

Youth and vigour triumphed over experience and guile as Saffron Walden V bowled us all out. The only chink in their batsmen’s armour was exposed by Achintya, who took the only two wickets of the innings.
