This page provides immediate access to the latest results for season 2019. The above links, and the navigation bar to the left 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 1985 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 to the left, 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: Jake reached his 29th fifty for the Badgers with the boundary that tied the scores, tying Brian Moore for fifth place on the list of lifetime scores of fifty or more (but doing so in just 129 innings compared to Brian’s 271, and that doesn’t factor in how many of those innings were played before he was old enough to hit the ball off the square – I would discount at least 23 of them). He also passed Keith Miller into 21st spot on the lifetime innings list.

Vinny made his personal best score for the club, an incremental improvement on his previous best at Westcott in 2013, whilst sharing in a fifth wicket stand of 93 (from just 73 balls) that was also a personal best for him, for any wicket, if not for his partner, and the best for that wicket this season (surpassing the 58 that Rod and Jake put on last week)

Ricky does not often get asked to bowl, just 12 times in the 49 matches that he has played in that have counted towards the averages, and his seven overs in this one (a full spell, since it was a 35 over game) were the most he had ever been asked to send down. The resultant 4 for 45 represents by far his best bowling figures, bettering the 2 for 22 that he recorded at Westcott in 2014.

A late cancellation and a last minute Conference arranged fixture saw a second return visit of the season, following our return trip to Stoke D'Abernon a fortnight ago, something that has not happened since 1982, when we still played home and away against a couple of opponents (Sutton Railway and Wallington Cottagers in that instance, so all recreation grounds). Prior to 1982 it was the norm to play teams twice each year, with as many as six such pairs in some seasons, and 1972 being the only occasion when we played less than two (possibly because of weather related cancellations, but I do not have fixture cards prior to 1978 so I am unable to check). Since 1982 there have been a handful of instances of a single repeat visit in a season – Wallington Cottagers in 1984, Newchapel & Horne in 1988, Merrow in 2002 and Tadworth in both 2011 and 2016 – but never the double dip.
