The Usual Suspects – All 35 of them

By my reckoning 35 players represented the Academy this season. Please shout up if you have been overlooked. Here is my take on to the individuals concerned. Don’t look now if easily offended!

Andy Simpson, The Optician. An able Vice Captain. I think that is how Nina described him! He has been invaluable as a relatively senior player (26!). Despite having to work Saturday mornings he has always arrived on time and for the early part of the season performed the duties of Treasurer with an efficiency that Malcolm Glazer would admire.

Academy survival weekend…part 2!

Following a great win on the Saturday with youth celebrating long into the night with new found female company (hopefully not a sign of new priorities??), final home game against Warmsworth, who were pushing for promotion. On the main pitch was a nice end, but a damp wicket was not going to help anyone. Requiring just the 1 point for survival, the toss proved very important, but this is the where the day went…Simmo still as captain for the weekend tossed, and their vice-captain (captain not turned up yet) called correction, for the sixth time in a row this year!

Academy Survival Weekend…part 1!

Part 1….Saturday, saw the academy away at Maltby in the 1st game of a double headed weekend, knowing 2 wins would make survival certain. With the skipper away at a 100th birthday (he looks good for that age!), Simmo was back in charge. Vice skipper Lister left in charge to sort transport, warm up and win the toss! Into the field on a windy cold day.

Derby Series squared up by Academy with one to play

A more experienced Academy side than normal made the short trip to Bawtry Road for the second Division Two Derby of the season.

Unfortunately, the selected scorer did not get further than Meadowhall. The scorebook no further than the Abbeydale changing room. You know the drill boys. If one of our number is absent use your initiative and do his job for him!

We were therefore obliged to Gill Morgan for stepping in at the last minute with scorebook and all.

Oh Danny Boy! Wal(TON) but Tickhill’s Got Talent as well.

Another good turn out for nets from the Academy side. Out in the middle again working on finding the gaps with the bat until gone 9. Thanks to Riaz and Crofty.

A much changed team travelled to Tickhill for gala day minus The Saint, Hamps, Bond, and the Duke’s charges Udall and Half Hour from the victorious Warmsworth conquerers.

The ground, like the village, a picture. Changing rooms cosy. If only someone hadn’t let loose with the deoderant pre match! Bit Stuffy in here! Try a shower in the morning please guys.

The Return of The Saint

Excellent practice on Thursday. Out in the middle until gone 9. Thanks Blade, Ri and Crofty. You guys can take some of the credit for the seven well earned points achieved by the Academy on Saturday. Some but not all. Read on.

On an overcast, humid day at Warmsworth the Academy gave a performance which demonstrated exactly why the club is investing so much time and effort in encouraging junior cricket.
