The captain says: Should take an hour or so to get there from Grittleton. Their website states that: If you are following a SatNav, the post code is SN10 3NR, however please bear in mind this will take you to a private dead end road, and you need to look out for the ground before you reach your destination.

Their website also states that their Sunday games start at 14:30, so look to get to the ground for 14:00 latest, so if you are meeting at the Neeld, look to leave about 13:00. I'll let you talk amongst yourselves if you want to share lifts.

Any problems.... the captain don't care, just sort them out and make sure you turn up on time!

July Away Match against Peterborough Arms on Sunday 15th July 2012

July Presidents Match on 10th July 2012

Match Postponed, due to a water logged pitch!

Let's face it, we don't enjoy bog cricket, and that is the most likely outcome if we try to play on Tuesday, so we have decided postpone the game. We have agreed with the President to reschedule if this monsoon season ever ends! Watch this space for details...

July Away Match against Canal Taverners on 8th July 2012

Please contact our Captain via phone or e-mail to let him know your availability for this game.

Team selected for Sunday's Game is: Andrew Inchley, Mark Readman, Mitchal Foard, Bradley Foard, Giles Tupper, Anthony Josey, David Jones, Charles Carrington, Andrew Carrington, Killers Kilfoil and Leyton Lark.

It's away at Canal Taverners so the Captain would suggest meeting at the Neeld with a view to leave at 12:45, unless you tell me otherwise that you are going straight there.

July Home Match against Golden Fleece on 1st July 2012

Please contact our Captain via phone or e-mail to let him know your availability for this game.

Team selected for Sunday's Game is: Andrew Inchley, Mark Readman, Mark Runacres, Richard Saull, David Jones, Mitchal Foard, Bradley Foard, Robert Ward, Scotty, Graham Perkins and Rob Faulkner.

As the groundsman is on holiday and there will be some work to do to get the place ready for the game, so if you could start turning up from noon that would be perfect. A village club like ours is not just about playing cricket, we've all got to muck in sometimes to keep the club going, so an earlier arrival, if possible, to get things in order would be greatly appreciated.

June Away Match against Compton Bassett on 24th June 2012

Please contact our Captain via phone or e-mail to let him know your availability for this game.

Team selected for Sunday's Game is: Andrew Inchley, Mark Readman, Martyn Foard, Bradley Foard, Mitch Foard, Charles Carrington, Robert Ward, Leyton Lark, Micheal Stanford, Scotty and Anthony Josey!

It's a 40 minute drive from Grittleton, so meet at Neeld with a view to leaving at 12:45. As always, I'll be going straight there, so if you think my departure time is wrong, agree amongst yourselves when you want to leave!

June Away Match against Failand & Portbury on 10th June 2012

Please contact our Captain via phone or e-mail to let him know your availability for this game.

Team selected for Sunday's Game is: Andrew Inchley, Mark Readman, Mark Webb, Leyton Lark, Richard Saull, Andy Perham, Andrew Carrington, Charles Carrington, David Jones, Bradley Foard and Martyn Foard.

It will, according to the Captain's iPhone, take 45 minutes to get to the ground from Grittleton. I'll be going directly there so I would suggest you all meet at the Neeld Arms with a view to leave at 12:45 to get to the ground about 13:30.

The postcode for the ground is BS8 3TY. There is further info on their website if you need it. Weather may well ruin it all again but I'll let you know about that as soon as I can if it comes to that.

June Home Match against Cuffs on 3rd June 2012

May Away Match against Llangford on 20th May 2012

Please contact our Captain via phone or e-mail to let him know your availability for this game.

Team selected for Sunday's Game is: Andrew Inchley, Mark Readman, Martyn Foard, Bradly Foard, Andy Perham, Robert Ward, Micheal Stanford, Andrew Carrington, Leyton Lark, Rob Faulkner and Huw Williams.

It's an away game against a new team to us, Langford. I will be going straight there with Rob as this away game is closer to home for me than Grittleton! The rest of you I would suggest meeting at The Neeld with a view to leaving at 12:30. The journey will take about an hour I believe. You all have satnav so I'm sure you'll find your way. It's near Lechlade.

May Home Match against Eric Matthew s XI on 13th May 2012

Please contact our Captain via phone or e-mail to let him know your availability for this game.

Team selected for Sunday's Game is: Andrew Inchley, Mark Readman, Martyn Foard, Andrew Carrington, Richard Saull, Andy Perham, Graham Perkins, Rob Ward and Ali KIlfoil. We are still 2 players short so if you find yourself suddenly available pop along.

We are playing a jovial bunch on tour, so I have already been negotiating with their captain over playing terms. Due to the current low numbers (they are at about 9 themselves) we are thinking 30 over game. If we suddenly manage to swell numbers to 11 then we can revert to the usual.

May Home Match against Canal Taverners on 29th April 2012

Please contact our Captain via phone or e-mail to let him know your availability for this game.

Team selected for Sunday's Game is: Andrew Inchley (Cap), Mark Readman, Rob Ward, Andrew Carrington, Martyn Foard, Mitchal Foard, Andy Perham, David Jones, Anthony Josey and Graham Perkins.

I'm sure this will come as no surprise to any of you who have looked out a window or stepped out the door at any point this week, but even with covers over the pitch, the weather has made them game unplayable tomorrow. A waterlogged outfield and the rather definite prospect of further, unrelenting, torrential rain on Sunday has meant we can call this on Saturday. Game off.

April Home Match against Peterborough Arms on 22nd April 2012

Please contact our Captain via phone or e-mail to let him know your availability for this game.

Team selected for Sunday's Game is: Andrew Inchley (Capt), Richard Saull, Graham Perkins, Andrew Carrington, DJ, Leyton Lark, Andy Perham, Huw Williams, Bradley Foard, Mitchal Foard and Martyn Foard.

The captain has stated that for those playing, please can you get to the ground for Midday on Sunday and be ready for a proper warm up!

March/April Natwest Cricket Force Weekend Please reserve the weekend of 30th March / 1st April 2012 for a concerted effort to spruce up the Pavilion and ground. Chairman will be in contact with more details closer to these dates!
