What a disappointing season 2016 proved to be. Probably for the first time ever no victories were recorded and the eight games that were played resulted in four losses and four draws. But by far the most disappointing aspect of the season was the fact that no fewer than fourteen games were cancelled,   mainly due to the poor weather we experienced.

The first game to be played was as late as July 3rd, and a poor game it proved to be.    After being set the daunting target of 333 runs Cornwall were left with little option but to play for a draw, finishing on 83-2.

The game at Truro School was lost mainly due to a fine century by Ben Ellis.     Phil Payne’s fine half century helped to make a game of it

The scorecards show that there were few performances worthy of mention in the eight games.    Trevor Lee’s 69 at Tideford and Phil Payne’s 50 at Truro School were the only half-centuries recorded. There were just two 3-wicket hauls, by Ian Mill and Mark Everett,   at Lanhydrock and Elephant’s Nest respectively.

Finally a word of thanks to all those helpers at the clubs who  hosted these games. They are an integral part of the Over 50s set-up. Thanks also to Tiflex for providing Oxbridge balls for the games

 Friendly Report for 2015

Sadly nine of the twenty scheduled games were called off and one abandoned.       So only ten games were completed and the playing record was –  Won 2, Lost 3 and  Drawn 5  

There were a few highlights, notably a fine 92 at Whitchurch by Prakesh Joshi,  who has now moved away from the area and is now qualified to play for Surrey Over Fifties,  having just reached that milestone.       What an There were only two other scores above 50. Mike Kent made 59 at St Erme as well as taking 2-32 and Paul Clements , 53 not out,  dominated a 5th wicket stand of 90 with Geoff Husband, 22 not out
at Tideford.  
The C. Green who featured in the Palmers game with runs and wickets was,  in fact,   on loan from the visitors. The only 4 wicket haul was by John Pollard,  4-38, in the last game of the year at
The Elephant’s Nest. Ian Mill had a good season but seemed unable to get beyond 40.His main scores were  39, 38, 37, 37 and 30  – quite remarkable.
That really is all there is to say about the friendly games. We must hope for better weather in 2016. If you are over 46 and keen to join in the fun, even if you do not feel you are good enough to make our
Championship side, then please contact Geoff Husband on 01579 350379.
Many thanks to Tiflex who very kindly supplied Oxbridge Cricket Balls for use in the friendly matches.
