Weekenders visit last err… Weekend

The aptly named Weekenders visited a glorious Spring Lane Field last Sunday (and I assume) promptly lost the toss. I arrived to find a GCC scoreboard reading 200 odd for 2. The scorebook was present and I thoughtfully took a picture to give a more informative tone to this report.

GCC vs Menzies XI

GCC has had success against all our opponents over the years…. except one. The Menzies XI who have regularly recruited a side where the victory has varied between comprehensive and comfortable over Grantchester’s finest. Would this year be the time for the Menzies monkey to be prised from its perch upon the collective GCC back?

Getting There

Spring Lane is waking up after its winter slumber! First rolling of the square completed – 3 to go. Outfield looking good but a few millimetres to go before we are at playing length.

Lidgate and Ousden Return

It was a bit dark but at least not raining as L&O, one of Giorgio’s old teams, featured in a high scoring match on Sunday. Sadly, I missed Baggers’ innings but was treated to a blow by blow replay by the man himself. Meanwhile Jamie Menzies and John Anderson….

Heligoland Pilgrims are visiting Grantchester…

…on May 20th for a game of cricket against GCC’s finest at Spring Lane. I must confess I had to look up where Heligoland is and am confused as to how one might actually get there (as is Google apparently). I was also some what alarmed…

Blest with some fine weather, a somewhat recalcitrant scarifier, an array of spreaders (need a proper collective noun here, Ed), seed, fertilizer, 2000kg of loam, luter & assorted rakes (non-human), barrows and tea, the GCC winterizer squad set about…
