Wed 13th July vs Shirley CC AWAY

The Blades webmaster has a long hard loook in the mirror, had a word with himself and finally published a registration page for Shirley away next week.

He apologises, and knows he has let you all down, has let the game of cricket down and has let himself down.

Please hurry along to THIS PAGE and bung your name in the box sharpish if you can play on the postage stamp at The Sporty on the 13th.

Thanks awfully

MATCH CANCELLED Wed 6th July vs Sports Development

My fellow Blades

Sadly, we have had to cancel next week’s fixture vs SpoDev. This match clashed with the Euro Semi-final, causing a potential move to Tu e 5th July, but even without that move, neither side had raised more than 6 players each so the fixture had to go.

After this week’s game on 30th July, we have just THREE fixtures in place for the rest of the season. I have listed them below – click on each to regiester your names. Currently the squads for these matches number 7, 6 and 7 respectively so SIGN UP NOW if you’re free. We have only played three times so far this summer, it would be a shame if we lost these fixtures aswell.


  • Wed 20th July – AWAY vs St Giles (Winchester, venue tbc)
  • Wed 3rd Aug – HOME vs Winchester Trust (Knightwood
  • Wed 17th Aug – AWAY vs NOC (Sports Centre)



Next game – Wed 22nd June vs NOC home

This is traditionally the time when we look to next week’s team sheet and issue a rallying call for numbers, but for the first time since (checks Wisden) August 1749 we have a selection headache with 13 Blades listed as available. This is great news, THANK YOU ALL!

This may mean that one or two need to stand down on the day but i would urge you, if you are available PLEASE still come along. Continue reading Next game – Wed 22nd June vs NOC home
