6 a side tournament at Hendred

Challow vs Wantage Wantage vs East and West Hendred Wantage vs Hanney An exciting opportunity to play in a truly unique tournament, we turned up keenly at 10am to discover that our first match would be against our truly local rivals Challow. We were also the very first team to play so we had 6 other teams watching with great interest as Timmy and Barry opened our batting innings. After a meagre first over, Barry was bowled for 2 before Ian and Tim gave the ball some long handle. IC hitting the first…Read more

East & West Hendred (A) – Friendly

Finally Wantage were able to get a cricket match in after the recent monsoons, and we were privileged to have a guest Sunday star in NiB, playing in order to get some needed time in the middle after our second Saturday match in a row was cancelled. That said, we had still struggled to ten players even with Nick so it was a nice surprise when we got a huge stroke of luck early in the game. Barry managed to tip the ball on the stumps after the other opener had smashed the…Read more

Challow – Away – Friendly

Once again positions were in great demand to play at the batsman’s paradise of Challow CC. JP as usual had provided us with an absolute belter of a batting track and a very short leg side boundary thanks to an earlier under 13’s match, would prove very interesting circumstances to score runs on the formidable lightning outfield! Grant ‘6 pack’ Summersbee and Ren r rrr Ren were given the arduous task of opening the bowling on the exceedingly flat wicket, proving that quick bowling wasn’t going to be the flavour of Wantages day.…Read more

Crowmarsh – Home – Derek Shorter Cup

It was time for another year where Wantage cricket club and Crowmarsh lock horns in battle for the Derek Shorter cup. Crowmarsh players were early, chilling on the grass soaking up the atmosphere. However, they were a little short on players so two of our players; Simon Martin (who they wrote in the score book as S.Simon), and the legendry marvel known as Picnic, stepped in to make it 11 a side. Cheers guys, just shows what kind of club we are and growing into. Mr Etham won the toss for Crowmarsh and…Read more

Uffington – Friendly – Away

The day started with great promise, as it transpired that Uffington had only 8 players. Fortunately, because Wantage is such an amazing club, they were able to loan them a few ringers. And ringers they were, as Barry, Timmy Lane and Ian joined Mongo as honorary Uffington players for the day. This allowed for plenty of nice and personal sledging throughout the day. Not to mention some bruised pride. Barry opened the batting and scored quickly throughout his long innings, although he was dropped twice, once a tough chance at slip by PicNic,…Read more
