Match Reports Trickle In...

21 Sep 2021

I'm afraid match reporting has been a bit patchy over the last six weeks. Not unlike our form this season, I suppose: we still haven't put together a winning or losing (or indeed drawing) streak of more than three games all year, and we've both won and lost several games by a margin of 70-odd runs or 8 to 10 wickets, as well as pretty much everything in between. A veritable mixed bag, some of the flavours of which can be sampled below:

Better late than never is Siva's report on our annual drubbing at Tale Millers back in June.
A contrastingly authoritative T20 victory over Heads and Tails is decribed by Nigel.
And back the other way for a heavy defeat by Devon Medics, as Jon Bev reports.
Marty Wright recounts another one-sided loss, this time at Marldon, in one of only three weekend games played in August (the other two were on the Bank Holiday weekend).
The Oxfordshire Tour was great fun again this year, though more so off the field than on, where we suffered three more defeats (we still haven't won a game on this tour in its first two years). A full set of reports will follow, but a joint effort between Jon Bev and Martin Wright on the Mandarins game is available.
Our fourth(!) visit to Chulmleigh this season was an enjoyable draw that took JK back to his childhood book collection.
The John Lloyd Trophy game against Lustleigh was contested for the first time since 2018, and the freshly polished silverware was retained by the Erratics, as Rick Lindsay recalls.

Lots of other August and September fun and games (or should that be games and fun) are yet to be reported on, but hopefully we'll have a few more tales come in to get us through the ever darkening nights ahead...
