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.

Third Time Lucky as Academy finally beat Rossington

The last Saturday in August conjours visions of dry turning wickets, hard outfields scarcely covered in a light brown grass together with sleeveless cricketers toiling in the sun and double drinks breaks.

The reality, a wet wicket, Wembley like outfield, double sweaters and bovril!

What a toss to lose in a vital relegation battle. Or so it seemed.

Position of safety whittled away at the Hall

On a warm summer’s day the Academy travelled the short distance to Whitley Hall for a vital relegation showdown.

New Pavilion looking good. Rail positioned just at eye level not ideal for spectating but otherwise a credit to all those who have worked so hard to ensure it was built.

Toss won. Decided to bat on what proved to be a lively wicket. Credit then to Ben and Elliott Callis for negotiating the new ball. 26 for the first wicket. Tom Lister shot to 11 before a loose drive resulted in a controversial claim for a catch in the backward point region being given.

The Seconds Prove a massive point

Whitley Hall 1xl 82 all out (Watson 7-41)
S.C.C.C 2xl 83-6 (Richards 38*)

The Seconds turned up to Whitley Hall all on time (apart from simmo who was working) and had a good propper warm up which, i believe, set the tone for what was to come! Benjy thought it would be a good idea to bowl shocking in the warm up and was thrown the new ball after Skipper Butts won the toss on a green damp one! Not sure how that is possible when its been 27oC all week???
