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.
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)
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
Only two days to go until the first Blades home fixture of the season Continue reading Museums HOME – Wed 8th June
As I’m sure you’re aware by now, Winchester away will now take place on Weds 25th May at 6pm.
The registration page is here and still carries the names from the original fixture. PLEASE REGISTER if you haven’t already done so. If you HAVE registered, please reply to your original comment to confirm whether or not you are still available to play.
Thanks all, your assistance is appreciated
The situation is getting very serious now. After much cajoling we have a team of 9 for tonight, next week’s game has been cancelled as we only have 6 registered, the following week 18th May the current headcount stands at 2. Continue reading The Blades need YOU!
Knightwood have contacted us to say that the ground is too wet there, and they are unable to prepare a pitch. St Giles have therefore stepped in to book PITCH 2 AT NORTH WALLS WINCHESTER as an alternative venue. The match will start at 6pm. Continue reading ST GILES ON 4TH MAY NOW AN AWAY FIXTURE
The first fixture is fast approaching everyone, it’s just over a week away. We have 6 registered on the so far so, if you haven’t already, click here to add your name to the list.
Now is the time to sign up extra players fpr 4th May and for the rest of the summer – tell your friends to get registered for this game, and to sign up for emails reminders!
OK so now I am aware the fixture pages didn’t have spaces for you to register, and I have sorted them.
It is therefore with great pleasure that I cut the red ribbon with the giant ceremonial scissors of destiny and declare (for a second time) Registration 2016 open. God bless her and all who sail in her.
Click here for the fixture list, and in the words of Ron Pickering at the end of We Are The Champions; Away you go!
Some kind of technical gremlin was interfering with our ability to register for the net on 20th April, but not anymore.
