Badgers Cricket Club – What’s New Archive 2023


This page provides a repository of all the What’s New entries for 2023, in reverse chronological order. If you really have a desire for the older or newer entries, then the links below will get you access to all those that I’ve saved. They are unlikely to be of any great interest, but do provide a picture of how the site has developed over the twenty-four years it has been here. Please bear in mind that links to external sites may have atrophied over time and thus you may see ‘not found’ or similar errors when trying to follow them, especially the further back in time the link was first created.

PLEASE NOTE that the scheduled trip to Dormansland this coming Sunday has been cancelled, due to ground preparation issues, and we will instead be returning to Warlingham who we are also slated to play again in September. The fixtures page has been updated accordingly and the Google Map with opponent locations already has a map marker for the club which I have moved to the top of the list for now.

The new season finally got underway with our annual trek to the northerly climes of Ham Common, where the weather was, thankfully contrary to recent weeks, unexpectedly warm and sunny. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.

Whilst almost all of it is automated these days the start of the new season brings a large number of changes to this site, most of them in the plumbing behind the scenes, and paradoxically that probably means that things do not get checked as thoroughly as they might in the past. Therefore if I have missed a mistake or other discrepancy that you spot, please shout.

PLEASE NOTE that today’s match at Long Ditton was called off on Thursday due to the wet weather and since we have been unable to find a replacement fixture at short notice we have been left without a game again this week.

27 Apr 2024

PLEASE NOTE that tomorrow’s game against Beechwood has been called off already due to an unplayable square so the start of the new season will have to wait until next Sunday at Long Ditton.

25 Apr 2024

PLEASE NOTE that this coming Sunday’s contest with Beechwood has been moved from Otford to the main Sevenoaks Vine ground at the “bottom of Sevenoaks High Street” where we have been told “parking bottom paddock” whatever that entails. Full details have been added to the fixtures page and the Google Map with opponent locations has also been updated accordingly.

With the new season looming less than two weeks hence I have managed to tear myself away from other (more interesting) activities and get the fixtures added both to our Play-Cricket site and the fixtures page here.

In trying to get things up to date I have also completed various bits of housekeeping such that you will find the trophy winners from last year have been added to the Honours Board cup winners page following the presentation of the awards at the dinner back in November.

The likelihood is that the next update to the site will be after the first game of the season has been played which enables me to roll everything over to the new season in terms of adding 2024 pages for the week-to-week detail.
