A warm and friendly welcome from Badgers Cricket Club – a wandering cricket side who play only friendly cricket matches, mostly in the villages of Surrey – and who also enjoy a yearly three day tour (for many years to the Cotswolds, briefly to Dorset and more recently to Cheshire). For more information about the club and this web site, take a peek at the about page.

The site has continued to grow since it first appeared in March 2000, and in addition to up-to-the-minute results, scorecards, match reports, news and fixtures, you will also find more statistical information than you could shake a stick at, the Badgers ‘hall of fame’, a list of the current club officers, a sadly rather stagnant photo gallery and links to general cricket sites and many of the clubs that we play, or have played, against.

What’s New

16 Oct 2019

Rather like it had in 2018, the 2019 season just fizzled out, with the Badgers struggling to get a team on the designated final weekend and then failing to find a fixture for the last weekend in September when we could have put out eleven, although I suspect that the weather might have made it all moot on both occasions. In the meantime I have fully checked the statistics (which is nothing like the chore it once was before I started processing each game in full as the season progresses and is mostly automated these days) and performed all of the standard end of season processing.

Given that everything is visible on Play-Cricket these days it was decided a while back that we would publish the full season report in advance of the dinner, and the distribution of awards off the back of the averages contained therein, rather than pretending that no one knew the destination of the cups directly decided by the averages. All of the other pages have been updated with the 2019 figures, including all decade by decade averages pages, the personal pages (for which Rod has qualified for the first time and Daniel re-qualified) and the individual records page. In addition you can now find historical results for 2019 along with the leading performances and partnerships for the season just gone.

Not sure what the next update will be, although there might well be one at some time after the dinner documenting the awards made on the night and in addition to continuing with some background work on the underlying site structure, which might result in switching to the new page layout before the start of next season, I hope to get the full 1984 data loaded into the database and exposed here. The relevant information was entered into Play-Cricket some time ago but, due to what happened with batsman retirement in the Hook Norton game that year, I am battling with changes to the fall of wickets handling in various areas of my code, that will need to be working before I can even import the data into the Badgers database, let alone generate any output from it. Some or all of that might come to fruition before the AGM announcement, or if past performance is anything to go by, it might not!?

21 Sep 2019

Sadly there is no game tomorrow, with Westcott having cried off and the Badgers struggling to put out a side anyway. There is talk of trying to arrange a fixture for next week, but that will depend on something suitable coming up via the Conference or some other source.

The annual visit to Horsley & Send last Sunday produced another close game and another exciting finish, with the Badgers scraping home with four balls and three wickets to spare. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the traditional pertinent elements from the scorecard and the new-fangled full fat scorecard.

15 Sep 2019

Our return visit to Ripley last Sunday produced the same result as the previous trip but a much more interesting game of cricket, with the Badgers chasing down just shy of 200 with an over to spare. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the traditional pertinent elements from the scorecard and the new-fangled full fat scorecard.
