The fixtures for the 2017 season are now available on the website. For the first team games are similar to 2016 but it will be good to play at Paultons, one of my favourite grounds and one we haven’t visited for many years. The seconds have lots of new fixtures and also get 2 weeks off!
Travellers played their last game of 2016 on Sunday. Batting first we suffered 3 run outs, 2 players without facing, and also lost wickets to poor shots. Consequently, and indebted to Chris who made 26, we were all out for 80, our lowest ever score. Defeat seemed inevitable! However Mark and Chris bowled brilliantly, backed up by sharp fielding, to bowl Bramshaw out for 31. Chris took 3 wickets and there were 3 run outs.
We therefore arrive at Christmas stlll unbeaten in the league. Some tough matches await in 2017 but we are keen to maintain our record.
The next match is on January 8th at 5.15
