Pack away those whites

Duck CupAnd so the cricket season has come to an end. Northern had a poor season all told and with a second from bottom finish we should be relegated. Of course there is the matter of the missing 30 points that we decided not to get back.

Having not won an official game all season we finally picked up a win on the last day of our season beating long time rivals Indus (formerly Fairwater) although much of this was down to the return of the prodigal son Mr Steve Hood, who bowled 5 overs for 5 runs and then scored 50no with the bat.

My season was alright but nothing special, a couple of knocks of ten, 3 ducks, keeping consisted of some catches, some drops and a few too many byes. In the field however I did take what was our unofficial catch of the season. And pretty good it was too.

Tonight is the end of season awards for which we will be giving out Batsman of the Year, Bowler of the Year, Player of the Year and the ever important Duck Cup. I might even post the winners later. Let’s just hope next season we get a slightly bigger squad and a couple of decent players and we should be looking to bounce straight back up.

UPDATE 30/08/2006: Winners; Charles was Batsman, Ashley Bowler, Baz Player and Dan won the Duck cup.
