3rds vs Birbeck College - Quayam The One and Only*

Posted on August 24, 2015 at 22:17 0 Comments

* For the headline to work you need to know 2 things:

1) 'Quayam' is pronounced 'Kai' 'Am'

2) Who Chesney Hawkes is. (Please view below link for further information)

On paper this should have been a straight forward. We, sitting second playing a team, bottom. But as we know cricket isn't played on paper (that would be impractical) but on grass (sometimes…

3rds vs Highgate - Keeping The Dream Alive

Posted on August 17, 2015 at 23:30 2 Comments

If last week's game against Uxbridge was important, this week's was even more so. With Highgate only 3 points behind us, a win would be great, but priority number one was not to lose. And so to the toss.

3rds vs MTSCC - The Explaining of the Coin

Posted on May 25, 2015 at 23:44 2 Comments

So I walk out to the middle with their captain. When there, I am informed of the rules of the match (okay, fair enough), asked who moves the sightscreens (slightly strange) and that anyone backing up will be given out immediately (if you say so). Not what I'm normally used to, but then it gets really surreal, as he proceeds to show me the coin (2p, completests) both sides and finally explains which is heads and which is tails! I like the heads side more, which proves an astute move, and…
