Future Number 11

I’m sure you’ll all like to join me in congratulating Waif and his Mrs Liz on the birth of their second child, Jack.

Jack was born on Boxing Day and already the likeness with his father is clear for all to see. It’s rumoured that his journey from the womb was rather crab-like (ala Waif’s batting style) and on entering the world, Jack looked around the delivery suite, grabbed a hankerchief and in true Longley style, blew his hooter like a good ‘un. Fortunately, Jack, like his elder brother Daniel appear to have been spared the infamous Longley nose.

The news of Jack’s birth has had mixed response particularly in the Barnsley region where Elsecar fast bowling hero, Paul Tasker was quoted as saying ” **** me! Now there’s 3 of them going to be trying to destroy me! I’m off to join the Central Yorkshire League!” Elsecar CC are currently deciding whether to take legal action against both Longers and Colegiate.

Waif meanwhile is over the moon and celebrated Jack’s arrival by cracking open the Lenor, putting a wash on and attacking the pile of ironing that had been left for him. This part is actually a part-lie. Waif also got s**t-faced as usual.

It is in fact no accident that Waif has named his children Jack and Daniel which is very reminiscent of a famous alcoholic drink. However, reports that he is sponsored by the brewers of Jack Daniels are unfounded at this stage. I’m sure we will learn more when Longers’ autobiography, ‘Me, the ironiong and a bottle of Thunderbird.’ is released in the summer.

Seriously though, congratulations to both Longers and Liz and of course Wiz who is now a specialist Grandafather

The Seconds

It has been a long tough season for all who have been playing in the seconds and we are not halfway through.

Being bowled out for 20 odd and losing by houndreds of runs makes it hard to find the motivation to write reports but here goes saturdays.

Houghton Main 200-7
2nds 109 All Out

People ask what is going wrong with the season so far and every week it is basic things that we can control as a team.

With no disrespect to Houghton Main they are a team we should look to, and take, 7 points off but we never looked liked getting them

2nd’s show hints of form in loss to league champions

Defending champions Elsecar were the visitors to Abbeydale and showed a few changes to their side, most noticeably the absence of Lesroy Weekes. The 2’s were bolstered by the rare appearance of Joe Root who’s presence lifted everyone. The toss was won and Elsecar were asked to bat first on a very good batting strip.
