If it ever stops raining in blighty we might get some games in, though this year’s tour to Portugal should provide some sun at least and hopefully an actual track to play on.
With work, holidays and future Quokka childcare taking up valuable Sundays from our existing players, and with the Shandyman scheduled to defect back to his motherland mid-season, the Quokkas are on the lookout for more players for 2012. If you appreciate the social aspect of the game, can
play cricket hold a bat the right way round and have a passing acknowledgement of the rules* then the Skip is after you.
Our first Sunday game is versus the RV Strollers in Greenford this week and with no Ashes or T20 action so far this year due to inclement environmental conditions, fear of falling to the mighty Mellan from batting rustiness is high. A maiden win for the Quokkas in this fixture last year gave us a good start to the season and any opportunity to wind up the highly-strung French surely shouldn’t be missed.
Team selection for Strollers thus far:
- Evil Dave
- Tom the Yank
We still have a few spots open on the team so contact the Skipper if you fancy a game either this weekend or later in the season here.
*not strictly necessary
EDIT: So much for the preview. Despite the nice weather this weekend, match is off due to waterlogged pitch. Bugger.
