A rugby players view of cricket

Martin Fay

The end of April arrives. We have had eight blissful months of playing silly barrngames, bar diving, sunshine mountain, and trying (and failing) to outdrink thernLadies Hockey Club.

The first Saturday of May comes round- who the hell are all these people? Theirrnclub sweaters fir properly (nice pastel shades), and dont have beer and curryrndown the front. Suddenly I am about average height instead of getting a crick inrnmy neck talking to people. (To dispel a myth about rugby, in my experience, thernbigger they come, the harder they hit you). One bloke wears the most outrageousrnoutfits youve ever seen (can only by Graham Dove of the Old Eds. – Ed.) Therncricket season has started.

A common feature of rugby players is that you can spot them from theirrnmannerisms in the bar. For every fly half dropping imaginary goals over thernsnooker table, there is a batsman playing glorious drives through deep extrarnquiz machine. Just as front row forwards go off into corners and relive arnversion of the game nobody else understands, a kind of alternative universe onlyrnthey inhabit, so bowlers congregate, either flicking their fingers as if tryingrnto get rid of a bogey, or making sweeping outswinger gestures. (Mart Maddocksrndoes this all year round). When they play snooker, always expect cricketers tornscuff one side of the cue ball and throw it around amongst themselves beforernputting it back on the spot. (How do you confuse a Collegiate bowler? Give him arnsnooker ball and tell him to pick the seam).

The England cricket selectors seem to have adopted the system used by rugbyrnselectors in the 60s/70s, i.e. based on which club you play for and/orrnuniversity you went to. The most consistent thing about the England team at thernmoment is that whoever wins the toss, England always bat third.

Of course, we all like to bask in the reflected glory of the Cricket Club,rnwhether name dropping (Oh yes, Ian Bishop plays at Abbeydale) or theirrnincreasingly irritating habit of winning trophies. And Graham Bethell one handedrnboundary catch a couple of years ago was the best I have ever seen.

Finally why dont we have a member of the ground staff keeping cricket balls offrnthe rugby pitch? And who is going to pay for him?

Anyway, whose round is it?

Is the Yorkshire League so great? –

So if the Sunday Times expects to increase its circulation by serialisingrnmemoirs, the Collegiate Newsletter can only expect to increase its circulationrnby publishing David Fleetwoods thoughts on the Yorkshire League. Here is partrnone.

by David Fleetwood (President of the Yorkshire League)

In reply to Nick Gaywoods article in your last newsletter, Is the YorkshirernLeague so great?, I would have to take issue with a Devonian having the audacityrnto make comment on a league structure within a county which virtually was therninnovator of league cricket. I would not dare to comment on the quality of Devonrncricket.

Sadly and regrettably, one has to reflect on the general state of Englishrncricket at the moment, from International level through County level and down tornthe Senior Leagues. Its always very difficult to try and compare standards withrnthe past, and I believe that most older players always think that the standardsrnin their days were better than exist at the moment. I, personally, dont sharernthat view, and think that there are a lot of very good club cricketers in therncountry today who quite easily could make the county standard if they so desiredrnto risk the chance of making a professional career out of the game. Furtherrneducation etc. has made it such that, quite rightly, a lot of young playersrninvolve themselves in Polytechnic or University education with a view torntaking-up employment away from cricket.

Coming back, however, to Nicks article, Is the Yorkshire League so great? Thernquick answer to that is NO, but in my opinion it is the best league for anyrnaspiring young player to make the grade at county level. It has always beenrnaccepted that the facilities and the playing conditions within the YorkshirernLeague are looked upon by, not only Yorkshire, but other counties as being thernnext best thing to minor county or second-XI competition cricket, and obviouslyrnYorkshire have the majority of their second-XI squad playing in the YorkshirernLeague, and in the past the League has often played other counties players,rnnotably Derbyshire, Notts. and Northants, through their various connections withrnYorkshire in the past.

Geographically, it is impossible to create the inter-village atmosphere whichrnexists in the Huddersfield and Bradford Leagues. I totally accept Nicksrnviewpoint on the fact that virtually every game he plays is a local derby. Thisrnis also the case in the Bradford League, Central Yorkshire, Airedale andrnWharfdale Leagues; the involvement of travelling as Nick quite rightly pointsrnout being no more than 8-10 miles on most away games.

It is also much easier for the media to concentrate on an area where there is,rnfor want of a better word, a hub of cricket, whereas the Yorkshire Leaguernspreads from Scarborough in the north east to Sheffield in South Yorkshire, andrnobviously cannot get the intense media coverage of a very localised area such asrnHuddersfield, Bradford or the heavy woollen area.

(To be continued in the next issue, along with Gods comments on the same subjectrn- Ed.)

Wall balls

I didnt see you getting in line much when Jarvis was bowling then Charles? I didrnwhen it was going to hit me.

I tell you Charles, Martin Crowe is a really good player. Well he couldnt getrninto the Australian test team though could he?

Charles, on the subject of slip fielding: its pretty easy really, standing therernall day with your feet on your knees.

Charles, on another team in the one-division Yorkshire League: Theyre a disgracernreally, I hope they get relegated.

Ridings League

rn<h4>vs. Halifax (4 Sept)</h4>

Well, after the performance at Harrogate the previous Monday, everyone hoped forrna better fielding performance. To be fair it couldnt get any worse, but we didntrnget any better either. Important catches were dropped early, including by StevernHood, off Semtex Seager in particular, and Semtex soon started to live up to hisrnname with a series of tirades delivered at all and sundry. Bas Jones heard themrnall in the score box and anyone on the Abbeydale Road probably did as well. Wernthink that there was a world-first new swear word but of course that cant bernprinted here. Despite our efforts to boost Halifaxs score, they only got 142-9rnat the close, the latter order apparently bent on batting for the millennium inrna bizarre tactical move.

Hood and Furniss made extremely short work of the total, knocking off the 142 inrnonly just over half of the available overs. This was a fine display of positivernbatting which was a treat to watch.

Ridings League Cup Semi Final

rn<h4>vs Barnsley</h4>rn

Barnsley made a pretty solid start, scoring at the best part of 4 an over forrnthe first 20 overs. However, its funny how playing cup cricket engenders arntendency for batsmen in a cup game to play injudiciously at reasonable balls andrntoday was no exception. A significant proportion of the early Barnsley runs camernfrom freeform shots and eventually the law of averages took over. From arnpromising position Barnsley subsided gently to 159 all out. Bowling honours werernclaimed by Angry and Semtex, the latter of which left the pitch with a smile onrnhis face for the first time in weeks. One of Semtexs overs consisted of thernanalysis w-.-1-.-6-w-w (Is that wides or wickets – Ed.)

This was a much better fielding performance from Collegiate but there is still arnway to go.

Root and Furniss got Collegiate off to a sound start, scoring at a brisk 4 anrnover. 64 for 1st wkt, after which Root hammered Barnsley leaving Collegiaterndeserved winners.

Ridings league cup final 1

rn<h4>vs. Sheffield Utd</h4>

The weather forecast was pretty awful and the pitch had clearly had some rain onrnit, but was still firm. Collegiate were inserted, a little to our surprise, andrnmade a good start with both Furniss and Root looking good and they put on 57 forrnthe first wicket. Roots innings was very classy and provided exactly thernfoundation required for a massive total. Collegiate continued to score at a veryrnfair rate and were 160-4 with 10 overs to go. The lower order continued tornbatter the rather variable United bowling and took another 70 from the final 10rnovers to leave us on a massive total. However I had a premonition of doom whenrnwalking to the wicket with 3 overs to go; the umpire announced with what seemedrnlike glee to me that it only looked as though the weather was going to last asrnlong as our innings. Certainly the clouds were building up, the temperature wasrndropping, and the wind was rising, but Collegiate were understandably prettyrnupset when the umpires took the players from the field without asking thernplayers their opinion. At that point United were in some disarray at 18-2. Thernumpires seemed to me to be in a hurry to get away, and I thought showed littlerninterest in getting us back on the field, despite an improvement in the light.Apparently conditions were unfit. But nobody had slipped over, nobody had beenrnhit, we could all see, and nobody had complained. The light was poor but wevernall played in worse, and it had started to drizzle, but weve definitely playedrnin a lot worse. The groundsman hopped around with an empty cardboard box, justrndying to collect the boundary flags. It then rained very hard, but it seemedrnthat no unvandalised covers were available, and no sheet. And that was that. The United team, however, were extremely pleased and many were showered andrnchanged well before the game had finally been abandoned. This was an importantrngame for the Collegiate Ridings League side and our five supporters were treatedrnto an excellent display from Collegiate. It does seem a shame that a little morernpositive effort was not made to bring the game to completion.

(I seem to have lost the scorecard for this which is a blow after myrncameo-Ed.)

Ridings league cup final 2

rn<h4>vs. Sheffield Utd</h4>rn

Well after the disapointmet of being rained off in an impregnable position thernprevious week, and torential rain during the week, we were fortunate to bernplaying a repeat game on Saturday. We were also indebted to the University ofrnSheffield for providing a pitch when it had been put to bed for the winter.Collegiate won the toss and fielded. Dont ask me why but we did. United went offrnlike a train as the opening bowlers found it difficult to find grip and thernscore after 4 overs was 22. However normality returned and United chugged alongrnat about 3 an over, the well known second team partnership of Shutt and Phelanrnscoring most of the runs. Root took bowling honours (6-40) and seems to have hitrnupon a novel method of getting wickets, one which several Collegiate bowlers arernkeen to try during the next season. Bowling straight (5 bowled and one lbw).There was a possibility of an additional natural obstacle being in place on thernpitch after tea as the heavy roller stalled while rolling the wicket. While wernwere arguing about whether striking the roller would get us 4 or 5 runs, andrnwith the groundsman getting a blank refusal when he aked help with a bump start,rnit did actually get started.

Furniss and Root again got us off to a good start. However after Furniss leftrnsome abysmal middle order batting effectively lost the game for us. It has to bernsaid that the younger contingent buckled under the pressure and never gotrnthemselves into the right frame of mind for this game. Im sure Ill get hate mailrnfor saying so, which doesnt alter the fact that its true.

Overseas tours

Two of the clubs players, Richard Ibbotson and John Hespe, have been selected byrnthe M.C.C. for foreign tours this winter. Richard will be touring Italy in laternSeptember, while John, early in 1994, will be visiting West Africa, taking inrnthe Gambia, Sierra Leone, Ghana, and not withstanding the odd civil-war,rnculminating with a week in Lagos, Nigeria. Richard is said to be deeplyrndisappointed not to have the opportunity to be robbed at the air port, mugged inrnthe street, or catch malaria in the Dark Continent. Assisted by his wife, Julie,rnhe is likely to be found drowning his sorrows in such awful places as Rome,rnNaples, Pisa, and Florence.

P.S. Rumour has it that while in Rome, Richard will be granting the pope anrnaudience. No doubt a full report will appear in the next newsletter or so.

A Faerie Tale

anon

Once upon a time, there was a cricket club called Sheffield Collapsibles. Theyrnwere very poor, so poor that they could only afford a rolling pin to fettle thernwicket. Now the Collapsibles played hard by Eccleshall Woods, which was where YernMerrye Men lived and were wont to shoot their bows and arrows at little bunniesrnand bambis. Sometimes, they even ran onto the cricket field in the chase forrntheir quarry. They were also hunting a lion which was rumoured to be wanderingrnthe woods. The warden of the forest, John oFfield, had offered 1000 groats tornthe person who captured the lion.

One day, the collapsibles were playing the Squires XI. Later that evening therernwas to be a presentation of a play before the Duke of Abbeydale and one of therntrusty Collapsibles, also a thespian, was to take part, that part being a WALL.In order that he might give of his best, he thought to rehearse while fieldingrnon the boundary and therefore did not see that little Leo had crept up besidernhim. (Actually, all the lion wanted was a few tips he had for a hot date he hadrnwith a lioness from Loxley). When over was called, the wall, came to life,rnglanced round, saw the lion and ran for extra cover. The lion followed. Onrnseeing this, our brave Collapsibles surrounded the lion and beat him about thernhead with the rolling pin until he yielded. With the promise that he wouldrnEccleshall Woods never to return, the lion slunk off down Abbeydale Road withrnhis tail between his legs. John oFfield gave the Collapsibles the reward, enoughrnmoney to buy three foaming jugs of ale and a boundary rope to keep Ye Merrye Menrnoff ye pitch.

This is the true story of the Collapsibles and how they got their crest (seernfront page), showing the lion, still alive and kicking the arrows vanquished byrnthe rolling pin, the boundary rope, and the jugs of ale bought with the rewardrnmoney. And the Collapsibles still play at Abbeydale to this day!

View from the bench

Friendly cricket – any future?

As many of our readers will recall, the Devon Tour had to be cancelled for lastrnyear when it became apparent that only 5 or 6 players were able and willing tornmake the journey to Plymouth.

So far as I am aware that was the first occasion in almost 90 years that thernTour failed to materialize (apart from the periods during the 2 World Wars). Itrnwas not felt appropriate to resurrect the Tour for 1993 in view of the currentrnplaying membership position at Collegiate.

Similarly over the past few years there have been enormous problems fielding arnfriendly side for both mid-week and week-end matches and some of those have hadrnto be cancelled due to lack of interest. Indeed, it was only due to the effortsrnof Tony Ammon who enlisted the assistance of outside players that the gamernagainst Westcliffe-on-Sea took place earlier this month. At the end of lastrnmonth the Sunday game against Yorkshire Gentlemen was cancelled for what seemsrnlike the umpteenth time.

There seems little point in Mike Snook expending time and trouble arrangingrnfriendly fixtures if no-one wants to play.

No doubt if anyone has strong views either for or against they will communicaternthem to the Editor in time for the next newsletter.

Responses to the opinions expressed here will be published here if you sendrnletters to the editor -Ed.

Readers Top Tips

Please send in your top tips. The author of each top tip will receive absolutelyrnnothing, but well be very grateful.

No fielder intentionally drops a catch. The best way to encourage fielders torncatch catches is positive reinforcement. This means that when a fielder takes arncatch, you dont disembowel him, garrotte him, and rip his head clean off, likernyou do when he doesnt.

S. Seager (Sheffield)

Make sure everyone realises youve just been on an American holiday by runningrnaround the square leg umpire the first time you hit the ball. Its a shame Irnhavent had a chance to try it yet.

W. Doherty (Las Vegas)

Avoid being selected for England by shaving every week.

D.A. Gower (Hants)

If you normally get a lot of runs off the edge, you should get even more byrnbatting with a triangular bat.

R. Shutt (Sheffield)

An apology

In the last issue we insinuated in a forged readers top tip that Tim Harrisrnwould drink half a bottle of gin before batting in order to calm the nerves. Wernnow realise that this insinuation has no basis in fact and we thereforernunreservedly apologise for this slur on his character and deeply regret thernshame and embarassment that this allegation has caused him. We did, of course,rnmean three-quarters of a bottle of vodka.
