Game 2 – Vs Yarl C.C. – Saturday 10th May 2014

HOLD THE PRESS: CHRUCHLEIGH COME OUT ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF A NAIL-BITER. With the recent rain that had been threatening the match, it was somewhat of a surprise to find the pitch in a reasonable condition and after a good 20 minutes of rolling by Charl and Adam (using the rollers, not our own […]

Game 1 – Vs RAC C.C. – Sunday 4th May 2014

A new year, a new season, a fresh start…. Same old Churchleigh! It was a beautiful sunny and surprisingly warm May bank holiday Sunday at Greatpark that was the setting for the first game of the season against RAC, who some will remember from last season was a fixture that consisted of two sessions of […]

vs Hartley Cricket Club – 16/09/2012

With the poor summer lingering on, a chilly Sunday in Hartley staged the penultimate fixture of the season. With two guests from Chelsfield Exiles and two from Hartley, it was an unusual Churchleigh Cricket Club line up, but one that made the 35 over game last a bit longer than we’d all expected. After winning […]

Match 5 – vs ADHOC – 01/07/2012

On a showery Sunday afternoon, Churchleigh took to the field against a team of league cricketers who justifiably “don’t like the atmosphere of league games”. With a suggestion that they might be a tad too strong for our rag-tag bunch of ‘let’s give it a go’ heroes, captain James Webb won the toss and opted […]

Match 4 – vs Leigh – 10/06/12

A rainy scene greeted the Churchleigh players as they arrived at Leigh, some of them on time, on Sunday afternoon for a 35 over game. With only 7 players, Churchleigh took to the field and bowled first on the flat, soggy wicket. The only question was what would turn up first; the three missing players […]

Match 3 – vs Kingstonian IV – 02/06/2012

After a right royal pasting last week, Churchleigh hoped that they would be able to celebrate the Jubilee by dishing out a royal pasting of their own.  With latecomers from both teams and the threat of rain later, a 35 over match was agreed.  The slightly shorter game did nothing to detract from the drama though […]

Match 2 – vs Bromley IV – 26 May 2012

After only having 7 players on the Wednesday, all hopes of forming a team rested on Russell Bamford who was sure he could scrabble together 11 players. With players dropping out at the last minute and the numbers fluctuating by the hour, Churchleigh managed to get a team of 8, or was it 9? But […]

Match 1 – vs Old Whitgiftians – 19 May 2012

  After a month of rainfall and waterlogged pitches, the frustration finally ended as the 2012 cricket season got underway on the back pitch, hidden away behind the shed and nets… way beyond the class and style of the first XI.  Determined to demonstrate their own mix of unique style and skill, Churchleigh began the […]

Match 19 vs Trinity Oxley

With the rain pelting down, our Churchleigh CC heroes arrived at the ‘Cricket for Change’ ground in Wallington with a hope that the afternoon would be spent in a more exciting way than simply watching the rain from the pavilion. As the persistent rain became more of a light drizzle, the covers were removed (!) […]

Match 17 vs Woodside Green

Churchleigh took to the field, fresh from the confidence-boosting batting collapse of the week before and put in one of the most dominant displays in recent history. Batting and bowling was of high class throughout and Woodside Green had no answer to the skill, guile and temperament of the Churchleigh stars. Yes, it is true! […]
