  • Former Zimbabwe international Greg Lamb has joined Minster as their 2nd XI player/coach.

    I will make no further statement at this time. 
  • A whole team of imports (accepting that a couple of these will be in Minster's 2nd X1):

    1.  Eddie Moore
    2.  James Hockley
    3.  Fabian Cowdrey
    4.  James Thompson
    5.  Kai Appelby
    6.  Julius Cowdrey
    7.  Sean Ervine
    8.  Greg Lamb
    9.  David Masters
    10.Daniel Masters
    11.Riki Ashwell

    Good luck Sidcup and the other teams in Div 1. Those that aren't trying to stay up will be competing for the one available promotion place.

    Still three months before the season begins so plenty of time to sign a few more! 
  • Any news or gossip from the KCL AGM held on Monday?
  • Will enquire at nets tonight!

    In other news, David Masters has been appointed Director of Cricket at Minster...

    The head of discipline has retired 😊
    Some points deductions in top 3 divisions and some fine tuning to the Vcc 

  • Well deserved @lolwray. Intrigued now by who will start on minuses and why? Knew of some 'suspended' penalties...

    Wow.  That's another big signing! Looking forward to officiating them this year!

    With Piesley signed it's not just those in Div 1 that will be concerned about the standard of the opposition. It's also those in Div 2 of the 2nd X1 League because they won't be able to fit all these superstars in their first team.

    It's somewhat bad luck that the likes of HSBC, Linden Park, Sidcup, St Lawrence and Upchurch are in the same Division for both Minster's top two sides!

    I've just seen that they're in Div 2 2s! It is a very, very, very funny thought that the likes of @Leuth could conceivably in one week be playing at a higher level than, say, Riki Ashwell or whoever. No offence though mate.

    Really?
  • Premier a league merry go round - Jahid Ahmed Left Blackheath - any idea where he is off to ? 
  • Heard Shootershillians CC have disbanded , not played there for over ten years , think I read a few of the players had moved on on here .
    was formed Shooters Hill 2001 when a mixture of Metrogas and another side or two combined , can’t remember who .
    Some good people down there back in my day .
    Anyone know why, lack of interest , funds ?

    Thought that might be the case.
    I think it was mentioned possibly on this thread that a few shoots were of to Downham & Bellingham? and I thought that would put them in deeper trouble numbers wise.
    If the colts fold as well, I hope Micky O finds some way to stay involved with the local game (if that is what he wants).

    Yes, a load of them seem to be - at least four or five were at D&B nets when I was there a couple of weeks ago. Shoots were apparently always going to disband after a few pitch troubles and members drifting away. They were barely getting two sides out?

    But it looks to have strengthened D&B's hand somewhat.

    What happened , shit bowling or the shit Shoots wicket that was filth

  • I bowled two accidental beamers at offspin pace and they took me out of the attack, the cheeky bastards. And now they have paid for it with their very existence!! 
  • So, shit bowling

    Tell me they got knocked for 6 or did the batsmen wear it 
  • Some balls I bowled got knocked for 6 that day, I forget if they were the beamers. They had this great fat bully who scored an unbeaten ton. I was taken out of the attack with them on the verge of a ten-wicket win. Very insulting. I got to swear at them a lot as I stormed off though. I am the very model of sportsmanship and sensibility 
  • In all seriousness, always sad to see a club close down. You'd hope the ground will still be used for cricket afterwards 
  • So another one bites the dust - very sad to see. My club Erith CC went a few years back and Shoots won't be the last. Not really sure what can be done about it though. Just doesn't seem to be people willing to commit to playing regular local club sport. 
  • Must admit that the numbers participating in cricket are falling in the UK and it's a great shame. 

    Free to air coverage of proper cricket would help

    You don't see many kids playing cricket unsupervised in the park or in the street the way you used to ...or any sport for that matter

    Employers don't offer staff sporting facilities the way they used to either

    Was looking at one of my first fixture books c mid 70s ..league cricket was almost a dirty word then,and played against 

    Old colfes (dodgy lot)
    Cuaco 
    Thomas Cook 
    Lloyds Bank
    Civil service 
    Bowring 
    Hoares bank 
    Australia house 
    Worcester park 
    Bank of England 
    Bowaters 
    Blue circle 
    Old dunstonians
