SPCC and Brettenham both win again
Phil Cowey  Tuesday, July 17, 2001  18:33 GMT

Both league leaders kept their 100% records at the weekend. SPCC overcame BSSSC (see match report) and Brettenham beat Meadlands, with a bit of a struggle. Meadlands scored 179 for 6 with Alan Row scoring 60 forming the backbone of their innings. In reply Brettenham scored 183 for 7 to win by 3 wickets. Stowmarket batsman Gavin Raistrick scored 35 and Blenkinsop made 84 not out.
Sugar Caned. Again !!
Phil Cowey  Monday, July 16, 2001  20:28 GMT

Southgate elected to bat on an FHQ track which looked a batting dream. Graham Underwood and Russell Tampion bowled with good pace and made the going tough. Keeper Chas Groves applied further pressure by standing up for the pace bowlers. Wickets tumbled on a regular basis with only Clive Mudd dealing with the bowling attack.
W.Mids Over 50's win at fortress Martlesham

At 5PM play looked unlikely as the heavens opened, but the sun managed to shine and the game was on. A game that saw the first touring side ever to play at FHQ.
Weekend Round Up
Phil Cowey  Tuesday, July 10, 2001  18:01 GMT

All other division one games managed to start and finish. Joint leaders Brettenham kept up their winning ways in a close fought match at Acton. Our spy at the game reports that Acton were able to cover their wicket and that the outfield (as usual) was particularly long. Acton batted first and put together 96 for the loss of all 10 wickets. In reply Brettenham struggled to 97 for 6 in the last over to win by 4 wickets.

I have carried out a pitch inspection this morning and due to heavy overnight rain and further rain already this morning a decision has been made to cancel todays game agains Meadlands.
Poll Results
Phil Cowey  Saturday, July 07, 2001  17:28 GMT

Dave Bird is the favourite to be top wicket taker this season according to our first club poll. Dave has started very well and will take a lot of catching. Bryan (call me Shane) Harwood was second and clearly must have voted for himself on numerous occasions or he got his mates in Plawsworth to vote for him.
Meadlands Game Still On
Phil Cowey  Saturday, July 07, 2001  15:52 GMT

I carried out a pitch inspection at 16.15 hrs today, Saturday 7th July 2001. Whilst the pitch is quite damp following a couple of heavy downpours I am optimistic the game tomorrow will still go ahead. Obviously if we continue to get more heavy rain we will be scuppered. I will go across tomorrow early on and as soon as I can will post further information on this site
The Great Escape
Simon Manthorpe  Thursday, July 05, 2001  19:04 GMT

Hosts played 6 lost 6, visitors played 6 lost 0 and the banana skin was just waiting to happen. The hosts put the police in, a combination of good line and length, inconsistent bounce and spirited fielding sent the first 5 police players packing with the score on 16. The tea ladies were overheard planning tea for the end of the game rather than halfway. Dave Bird and Tony Simpson’s first task was survival, which was achieved. Russell Tampion replaced Bird and the scene was set. The pair put on 70 invaluable runs with Tampion reaching 36 and Simpson finishing unbeaten on 37 with the police reaching 132 for 7. This partnership had given the police a total to bowl at and all were motivated to “get out of jail”. Tampion and Bird bowled with pace, the pair picking up 4 quick wickets. Steve Crouch and Phil Cowey bowled tightly and applied pressure. 2 catches swung the game towards the police, a brilliant one handed slip catch at full stretch by Tony Simpson and a fine diving catch by Simon Manthorpe (who vows never to bowl again as gets too excited / competitive!) at mid on, put pay to the very useful looking Cater and Tankard. Wickenford carried his bat, but had little support from the remaining batsmen. 6 dropped catches later, yes six!!! and the home side were bowled out 40 runs short. The only thing missing was Steve McQueen on his bike to complete the perfect GREAT ESCAPE. Good sides have to be able to make the most of opportunities when they have the opposition on the rack, as we did against Tuddenham but also be able to dig themselves out of holes when they are in them. The police were in a big one at Battisford.
New Sponsor Sought
Phil Cowey  Wednesday, July 04, 2001  17:47 GMT

Brettenham Remain Top
Phil Cowey  Tuesday, July 03, 2001  17:31 GMT

Despite not playing this weekend gone, Brettenham remain top of the league. Although the latest league positions on this site show Sudbury Police on top, this is only because, as yet, I haven't worked out if/how to show a teams average points total.Elsewhere third placed kedington scored 234 for 9 against the Sugar men and dismissed them for 160, winning by 74 runs. Acton took on Meadlands and posted a useful 197 for 8. Meadlands limped to a grand total of 81 all out leaving Acton winners by a 116 run margin.Tuddenham put together there highest score of the season when they scored 168 for 9 against Gt Yeldham but their efforts to chase down Gt Yeldhams 183 for 6 fell 15 runs short.
Club Poll
Phil Cowey  Tuesday, June 26, 2001  17:25 GMT

For a bit of fun we are now able to run a club poll. E-Mail me if you have any thoughts for a Poll and I will put it on. Also if you have any photo's of club members in action (keep it clean) please let me have a scanned copy and I will try and get a photo page going.

Elsewhere Gt Yeldham beat the Sugar Boys by 3 wickets and Acton beat Hadleigh by 6 wickets. Our next opponents Battisford were skittled for 33 against Meadlands who made 36 for 3 in reply.
