I came dashing inside on Friday night and said to her indoors, eh up by eck it is a tad damp out ere (I have finally grasp the Yorkshire lingo), can’t see us playing tomorrow, Nostell is under water and YC reckons there is a duck there with my name on it, Let me here [...]
I didn’t enjoy the game yesterday. There, I said it. We won without getting out of 3rd gear and took the full 10 points but I’d rather play in the Streethouse game every week (lost by nine wickets), testing yourself against better players and really finding out how good you can be against them. I’d [...]
Since my arrival at Nostell CC some years ago I have heard a lot about some Aussie Hack called Dean Jones. Stories of people flocking to the ground to watch him from far and wide, him hitting a ball onto Doncaster Road (pfff I have done that… along the ground through Point of course!) and [...]
We travelled the half mile up the road to the wealthy club of Ackworth, they have two groundsman don’t you know!, on Saturday to face the second placed side. We were without the bald kiwi who was off taking photos of horses in Scotland. The four legged variety that is. Lee declared himself available, albeit [...]
This week we welcomed Fairburn to Garmill Lane, The Fairies (as they are affectionately known) must have been looking forward to playing on a decent wicket after having been skittled for 37 on their home deck the week prior. I had a little look on the Fairy website to read last week’s match report to [...]
As some of you may have been aware our very own El Saviour, Lee Hurst was nominated in the Wakefield Express Sportsman of the Year award. Lee was shortlisted to the final three from over 500 entries! Not bad for a bloke was diet consists of kebab flavoured pizzas and Yellow Tail Shiraz! The presentation [...]
We travelled to the wind swept Crofton CC on Saturday to face a side that had been placed in the top four of the league for the past few years. We were missing the VC JimBob who was off chaving it up in Benidorm on a “stag do”. I personally think the Rowett’s are Nostell’s [...]
Nostell secured back to back victories in Division 1 of the PDCL with a hard fought win over near neighbours Frickley largely thanks to the miserly bowling of Ken Atkinson and the flashing blade of Lee Hurst. After going through our unique pre-match warmup routine of bread buttering and white lining the toss was lost [...]
Friday Night- After having put the latest addition to the Garrick family to bed I decided to have a quick look on Facebook to see how the Nostell lads were preparing for the next days relegation match with Hooton Pagnell (who will now be referred to as Hoots). I noted two things: Uncle Ken was [...]
Big congratulations to Jason and Jo Garrick on the safe, if lengthy, arrival of baby daughter Holly. The fun starts here mate, now how long before she can make the teas….
Preamble; Pre-Match preparation; (Scene 1) Answering the phone having been disturbed from a borrowed copy of Valerie Tasso’s “The Memoire Sexuel: The erotic diary of a French girl in Spain” the “Captain” answered distracted “Hello” “Captain, my Captain” “Yes,…Y.C” “It’s great we’re at Barnby Dun today” “I know Y.C” replied the “Captain” “Yes…Yes ..No, but [...]
The majority of the team managed to make the long journey across West Yorkshire to play against our old foe’s from Hatfield Town (Minus my mate black beard),although we were missing Simon who was still sunning it in Spain and Nic who was off chasing the Loch Ness Monster like the FT he is!,
As the headline states Nostell are the family friendly club (just ask the Reynolds clan!) an welcome all two legged and four legged members to Garmill Lane, unlike our close neighbour’s South Kirkby when visitors travel to their ground. They had obviously heard about Nostell’s fine reputation as hosts and bought many supporters with them [...]
I think we should bowl first quipped Wise Old Uncle Ken after having surveyed the slopping Stainborough pitch, “Bugger that” was the quick reply from the Former Captain, having just lost a few more hairs from his already balding scalp. “Do you not remember the last two weeks old man?” .
It was a hot summers day, the chavs had their shirts off and the team from Nostell travelled to the picturesque ground of Darton. With Nic living up to his moniker of being a filthy tourist and joining the Japanese tourists down south it was left to Kiwi Number 2 (yeap I am s**t) to [...]
No one gave us a chance of playing, even as myself and the FT travelled to the ground muttering “These poms love their cricket to much’ as the windscreen wipers were going full tilt. No chance of play today I said rather wearily after 20 hours flying the previous day…Hope we get to tea came [...]
On a glorious day, the Monks from Bretton came to visit and conquered the points. Upon arrival we quickly spotted the Monks were a burly bunch, deciding to watch the toss from a safe distance as a pre warned captain went to the toss. ‘Is your skipper around’ politely asked the captain, whilst wondering why [...]
After an early morning text from the captain confirming cup progression with Allerton Bywater clearly worried by the prospect of facing the Nostell Sunday squad thoughts turned to the short trip to South Kirkby. ‘They’ve just had a team meeting and are going to bat if they win the toss’ uncle ken reliably informed us [...]
Nostell moved themselves up the league 2 table one place to 2nd on the back of a nail biting 14 run win over Stainborough on Saturday. After captain Rock Star won the toss and chose to have a bat, after last weeks failed run chase, he sent a new opening pair of Nic “the filthy [...]
Nostell surrendered their one match unbeaten start to the season in disappointing fashion at old rivals Fairburn on a day more suited to winter fleeces than cricket whites. After winning the toss and electing to field in an attempt to maximise pre-rain bonus points we started well, Lee Hurst and James Rowett causing openers Buxton [...]
