‘How shall we live, now that the summer’s ended’, wrote Thomas Moult in his poem Close of Play ; words that could easily apply to the Tigers at the end of their seventh, and most traumatic, season. Continue reading “The game that’s never done”

REDEMPTION

The Tigers returned to action last weekend in the Winchmore Hill 6-a-side competition, a formula ideally suited to the team, since six is about par for players being available on any given Sunday.

Perhaps against expectations, they won their group and progressed to the semi-final, where they came unstuck against a strong local team that contained 1st and 2nd XI players. Chris Wright, who has purportedly been tarting for the world and his dog during recent Tiger downtime, was in particularly good nick, three times having to retire undefeated having reached 30 runs, his fine form seemingly inversely proportional to the application of his razor.

Love Train

Not a lot of cricket news this week, just a crumpet crisis, CO2 shortage and the usual World Cup outbreak of hyped-up jingoism.

At Winchmore Hill last Saturday all matches started 90 minutes early, then took an extended tea break between 3 and 5 to watch the football, cricket recommencing a few minutes later, after thankfully no extra time or penalties. Continue reading “Love Train”
