It must be said that the first half of

the season from so many points of view

has been most disappointing. In contrast

to the last season, in particular,

the weather has been atrocious .washing

out matches and practices with regularity.

Our first and second grade teams

have regained the form that saw them so

highly placed last year and both have

suffered at the hands of the weather in

a number of games.

The stop,-start nature of the early

season, has made it difficult to maintain

the momentum and spirit that was so

evident in our teams last season. Even

the two social events planned for this

time have failed to attract sufficient

interest for them to be held.

Let us hope that the remainder of the

season, following the Christmas / New

Year break will see a change in our

fortunes and will see a return to the

determined team performances that enabled

us to become Club Champions in 1982

-83.

This December-January issue comes to

you a couple of weeks late and this

delay is regretted.

Wet weather and washed out games seem

to have dampened the enthusias. of the

reporters who provide match reports.

While some reports are missing others

are in summary form.

This issue contains articles on some

unusual cricket matches. The Editors

are grateful to our first overseas contributor,

John Steel, for his description

of a most unusual County match in

which John Abrahams played.

The other unusual match is a story from

Frank Lonie"s not too distant cricketing

past.
