Sheffield Collegiate First XI vs Driffield First XI Yorkshire League Round 4

Next up in the unwanted trilogy, Driffield. After an early start for the team we arrived at one of the more picturesque grounds in the league, nothing could ruin this sight, the sun dappled ground, the perfectly manicured outfield, the marble coloured wicket, the white painted fence around the boundary, Wall-E stripping fully naked right in front of me, oh wait….

Andrew J Wylie- No Longer the Youngest and Never the Fittest

Saturday represents a sad occasion in our recent history as we bid farewell to one of our most successful players of recent times as well as a Treasurer and a top bloke.

My two year stint as First Eleven Captain has been described as the club’s “Doldrum Years”. However, I would like to think that one or two good things came to pass and the signing of “Wyles” was certainly one of the highlights for me.

I had heard of the name Wylie as a certain John Wylie, schoolteacher from Aigburth (couldn’t bring myself to mention the L word) had during his stint as Manager of Lancashire Under 11s coached my younger brother.

Of good stock and used to playing on the County Ground at Aigburth. Where better therefore to make your Collegiate debut than Stocksbridge! Anyway he took 8 for 12 and Ian Howe advised me that it might be worth seeing if he fancied changing his mind and staying with us for the summer rather than just the University term.

You have much to answer for Howie!

1sts finally get their season up and running

After enduring a bleak opening 3 weeks to the start of the 2009 campaign, the 1st team picked up two most welcome victories over the bank holiday weekend. After four defeats in the league and an early exit from the National Knockout, a turnaround in the fortunes of the team was required sooner rather than later.

Starting with Driffield on Saturday, Collegiate went in to bat on a wicket that had seen a lot of rain throughout the week, and it was a testament to Crofty and everyone else who had been working on the ground that there was even a game on.
