After tasting the first defeat against Thurleigh, the Cadds second XI Grouped together like “Cornered Tigers” to face Little Horwood on home soil on a gloomy day.  With Farhan, Aftab, Umer and Shabaz back in the team it looked a decent side but they had to lose their experienced batman Gary who was […]

Q: When’s the best time to have five of your regular players taken from you?

A: Not when you’re playing top of the league Thurleigh, who also had some first teamers thrown in for good measure.

This week the C’s visited Thurleigh, deprived of four players who were taken into the 1’s and one Omar […]

By Gary Norman

People often (never) ask me why I love playing cricket. Well, the answer is days like Saturday 9th of May 2015. After a resounding victory last week, the C’s welcomed Old Bradwell for their second game of the season, on a day where showers were forecast but never materialised. Omar was again stand […]

By Gary Norman

Last week the first team opened their league account with a defeat away to a newly promoted side. This week the 2’s were hoping to do better as they began their campaign in identical circumstances, in traveling to Stoke Hammond.

With Robbie absent, ‘Captain Omar’ lost the toss and the C’s were put into […]

Here’s the match report for the 2’s game away to Little Horwood.

This time last year the C’s were on a long unbeaten run, chasing promotion from division seven. Fast forward twelve months and a different scenario is playing out, with the team free-falling down the division six table after a three match losing streak, and […]

By |August 5th, 2014|Match Report|0 Comments

Here’s the report for the 2’s game at home to Lidlington:

In the first game after Ramadan and Anees’ final game for Caddington before moving to Dubai, Caddington hosted promotion-chasing Lidlington. Clearly strengthened by the return of some players, the in-form Jay and the ever present Khalid got Caddington off to a good start after electing […]

Here’s the report for the 2’s game at home to Cublington:

Saturday 19th of July, and the C’s welcomed Cublington for a mid-table clash, on a very hot day where storms were promised. Things didn’t start too well with a late withdrawal and an incident more suited to casualty than cricket when big Phil chased a […]

Cheats never win.

After the loss to Winslow last week (sorry for lack of report but here it is in a nutshell – very damp; put them in; 123 for 9; 60 odd run last wicket partnership; all out for 81; game over) the 2’s needed to bounce back at a nice looking Old Bradwell ground […]
