A new per­for­mance at the Joseph Hood Audi­to­rium, Raynes Park: Sat­ur­day, 23 August, 2014 ★★★☆☆ “The Eng­lish are not a very spir­i­tual peo­ple, so they invented cricket to give them some idea of eter­nity.” George Bernard Shaw While the rest of the country’s come­di­ans are north of the bor­der in Edin­burgh, a few hardy souls are

Seveno vs Teddington Town, August 30

Seveno CC 247 beat Ted­ding­ton Town 3rds (185 all out) by 62 runs The day started with a mutiny. ‘I’m cap­tain now,’ said Wil­son, tongue lodged firmly in cheek, as the on-time half of the team awaited the late arriv­ing Seveno skip­per, hoisted by his own petard and the 4x4 dri­ving masses of sub­ur­ban Ted­ding­ton. The bal­lot of

Seveno vs The Dropped Kratches: August 16

The day was slightly windy but pleas­ant. Adorned in Pur­ple Bag­gies hot from the hat-making fac­tory and a con­fi­dence that can only be gained from win­ning 8 of your last 9 games, Seveno took to the field against the charm­ing and affa­ble Dropped Kratches; or at least, charm­ing and affa­ble until you ask what Dropped

The Seveno Steamroller keeps rolling on

Tour report: Fine-spirited Seveno no-bully boys despite West Country yomp!

The Seveno of the past were a band of broth­ers that held “Play­ing the game in the right spirit” as the be all and end all, and if you could snatch a win, then that would be a much appre­ci­ated bonus. How­ever the Seveno of 2014 is a much more expect­ing bunch — but the be

Rams Raided: Seveno on tour vs The Ram

One man went to mow, went to mow a meadow. As a rule, if 10 min­utes before the start of the play, the oppo­si­tion are lug­ging a lawn-mower and can of paint from the back of the car, there has been a cock-up some­where along the line. This was the sit­u­a­tion that faced Seveno in their

Seveno thrash Castle Cary to level series at 2–2

Seveno secured their first vic­tory over Cas­tle Cary since 2007 in emphatic style to level the series 2–2 and com­plete their biggest ever Som­er­set tour unde­feated. With the Bear Flat Dads run­ning scared on Sat­ur­day and the Pur­ple Anchor bat­ter­ing The Ram on Sun­day, Cap­tain Rann knew that a vic­tory in the blue rib­bon test

Now I’m not gonna lie and say there isn’t bag­gage attached when Seveno meet our arch-rivals, The Pink Bag­gies, from up the road. They may not be a mil­lion miles from us in terms of mileage, but are a mil­lion miles in a lot of other ways. Last ball leg-bye wins, “too posh for nosh”, Har­rods quips

Seveno Bugle: Seveno lose to Pink Baggies by one run

The 10– and some­times 9-man Seveno lost ago­nis­ingly by 1 run with 4 balls left of the match with  South­wark & Lam­beth Impe­r­ial Col­lege CC in another clas­sic encounter at Haydon’s Road Rec. Heroes were the one-legged Savio (73) & CPO Brother Nagen­der (53no) who shared a 130 run 8th wicket part­ner­ship to get us within touch­ing dis­tance of

Another win

We won our 3rd suc­ces­sive match yes­ter­day in dra­matic mon­soon con­di­tions. Shane hit the win­ning runs but Clive anchored the innings in mas­ter­ful fash­ion with about 80 (scorer: please con­firm). Dan Wakely made some telling con­tri­bu­tions back at his old stomp­ing ground, and is on report­ing duty. Next Sat­ur­day, we are play­ing a rearranged fix­ture against the
