This page provides immediate access to the latest results for season 2022. The above links, and the navigation bar at the top of the screen, also make it possible to get at the running results and match reports for the other seasons since this web site has been in existence, as well as the results for the seasons back to 1959. Seasons prior to 1984 do not include information about individual performances since full scorebook details have not (yet??) been input to the database for those years.

The match reports page makes it possible to see the reports from all games in the current season, not just the current one in the section below. To get at the reports you can either select the link in the menu at the top of the page, or indeed in the text above, or click on the date and opponent details in the results table below, which should be a hyperlink directly to the report for that game.

My apologies for the lack of a report for this game, but nothing was written at the time and there is only an outside chance that anything will be

Statistical Notes: Mark carried his batting form from last week over into this game and he and I were able to add 108 for the seventh wicket to record both the second highest ever stand for that wicket and the first time in club history that century partnerships have been made in five consecutive games. For those that have been following along over the previous few weeks that ‘five’ might give pause, and it should because I have completely missed a very simple fact during that period whilst obsessing on the opening partnerships. Since Goldie and Jake added 105 for the fourth wicket at Hook & Southborough my mention of a previous occasion where we saw three consecutive one hundred partnerships was a week late.

Having noted in the Hook & Southborough report that Jake had moved past Mark in the lifetime batting averages I should also report that the runs Mark has scored over the past two weeks and a relative dry spell for Jake have reversed that position and thus the father is currently top dog by the small matter of .18 of a run!?

It is extremely unusual for the Badgers to bowl seven different players and for each of them to get at least one wicket. In fact, dating back to 1984, which is currently the earliest season for which I have full data, it had only happened once prior to two weeks ago – against Reigate Cavaliers in 1994 – but we did it against Ockley, where I completely failed to take note, and we repeated the feat in this game.

With his third and final wicket of the afternoon Jake passed Steve Card into ninth place on the all-time wicket takers list for the club with 202. Darrell is more than fifty ahead of him, and Greggy another thirty beyond that, so no prospect of gaining any more places in the short term. His final over, which featured four singles, also saw him move past Alan Wilkes into ninth place on the runs allowed slate, ending two in front on 3,857. Dave Tickner is next up the road but another 550 away, so again no immediate changes in the offing. With the first scoring shot against him Vinny went past John Rourke into 14th place in runs allowed, finishing up just 60 behind Steve Card in the next slot.

Bill’s brief cameo at the end of our innings saw him jump past Andy Parker into 18th place on the lifetime runs scored list, the actual leap-frog moment coming courtesy of a six. He finished the day on 1,888 so the 2,000 may also be within his compass before the season is out, which would leave him a handful shy of Adrian Cowell in 17th place.
