2017 Fixtures and Results

As usual, we made a pre-season trip to the Mediterranean, this time to the island of Corfu, where there has been a tradition of cricket dating back over 150 years. It’s a beautiful island, and the local hospitality was great, but we were outplayed on the field in both games. The tour will probably be best remembered for the injuries incurred: Rob Weatherley’s finger and Marc’s leg both requiring hospital treatment.

Back home, we had a season of typical Sharks high and lows, and unusually, we often struggled to set competitive totals batting first. The fiercest part of the campaign was two games at Queens’ played over successive days in June: a 2-wicket loss to ARM followed by a 4-run victory over Jagex. We took on both Napp and CUP for the first time, and hope to do so again next year. The Beefy’s Champagne Moment for the season was presented (in the media centre at Lord’s, but that’s a different story…) to Michael, for his hat-trick against St Barnabas – thanks to Rolo, this award now comes with a trophy in the form of a miniature cricket bat signed by Sir Ian Botham.

We looked to be heading to a return to winning ways, with a tally of won 10, lost 8 heading into the last three games, but two losses were followed, somewhat appropriately, with a closely-fought tie in dwindling light against the Fen Ditton Development Squad.
