    Your English Cricket Season: 2008

    With the start of the English cricket season only days away, I thought it'd be good to have a thread for people to update the rest of us with results, news, performances etc from yourself and your team.

    Everyone getting ready for the season now? I'm going back to Uni for my first pre-season next Wednesday, if I'm lucky I may even get an SUCC debut in one of the two Mixed XIs in actions over the weekend. Looking forward to getting back to playing some good competitive cricket, and testing myself at a higher level than I've played at before.

    I know Neil and the rest of the students' seasons will kick off in a couple of weeks or so - what's going on with the rest of you guys?

    I'm keeping a diary of my season at http://seasonsinthesun.wordpress.com/ aswelll as other things.

    I've haven't even started playing outdoors yet this year which is very annoying, last year i was playing every weekend from March when the weather allowed (and sometimes when it didn't) but this year my club isn't putting the cricket nets up untill may!!!!MAY!!! Which i'm really ****ed off at.

    I'm hoping to get picked for the 3rd team on Saturday though my prospects aren't looking goods atm so i guess it may be another year wih the ******** 4th team. Still, i've got my U15s side to look forward to because we have a really good chance of winning the one-day championship this year. I almost forgot school cricket, which aswell as being fun to play in also gets me off 1-3 lesosns a week.

    Forecast for the first games of the season in Exeter... snow. Let's hope that perks up a touch.

    Not a player myself. I have played in the past and can bat a little but I need the time for my Uni work. My local club is literally 5 mintues away and they are crying out for players but for some reason wouldn't let me join in late-may early-june and play then.

    1) No pickup lines, please. Worst puns ever.

    We play Liverpool College but not Merchant's because they haven't got time for petty teams like ours. I'm in U14s, but cricket isn't very popular at my school so i play for the U15s aswell.

    Are you in the Lancashire cup? I think we got entered this year so we might play you if we get you in the first round.

    Nah, we're Cheshire. We last played Liverpool two years back and stuck up 190-odd in 25 overs, we're just about even with Merchant Taylor's. Also from up Liverpool way we play St Anselms and Birkenhead (yet to beat them).
