Week 6

Heyford 1st vs Kislingbury Temperance 1st

Heyford welcomed local rivals Kislingbury to the Playing Fields with the away team having stormed to victory in all of their games so far, aided in no small part by their two (count them, two!) overseas players. Jimmy did what he does best, lost the toss and Heyford were put into field. Jimmy took a couple of overs to settle but quickly took their opener for 2, caught by Linnell. Jimmy followed up with the no. 3 caught by Garry for 11. Heyford's progress was slowed by a 93 run partnership broken by Boyson back in the 1sts this week, taking the opener for 75. The next partnership put on an explosive 87 runs but was halted by the Jimmy-Garry bowler-fielder combo, Kislingbury now on 235-4. Will Cooper-Harris came back for a successful second spell, taking the next wicket via another Linnell catch. He also removed the next man in for 10 leaving Kisl on 295-6 and nearing a big target to chase. Will popped up with another wicket without the batsman troubling the scorers, leaving the no.4 batsman to finish on 127* and Kislingbury having amassed an imposing 303-7 from their 50 overs.

Matt Baker and Linnell opened the Heyford innings, with the latter departing 10 runs later. Bakes was next to fall for 19, leaving Heyford on 42-2. Ben Taylor, back for his first game of the season, couldn't leave a lasting impact on his former team adding only 10 runs to the total. Leggie was occupying the crease well, but could not put together a meaningful partnership with Garry who was out for 0. Rob Pardon followed soon after also for a duck, leaving Heyford 94-5 and a long way from an unlikely victory. The next partnership proved to be the last. A determined captain and an equally determined former chairman saw out the remaining overs despite a furore of ridiculous appeals. Leggie finished on a fine 69* with Jimmy on 27*, meaning Heyford are the first team to deny Kislingbury a division 3 win this season. A lesson perhaps for the visiting team, declare while you're ahead.

Old Wellingburians 2nd vs Heyford 2nd

It is the fixture you have all been waiting for. Dave Baker's hatred for this fixture has been clear to see since his brilliant rant on this page last season and the many subsequent on the Whatsapp group. And so it was that he headed to that dump on the other side of town (a.k.a the Redwell Leisure centre) determined to pick up a second win on the bounce. Heyford were put into field first and what followed was an astonishing display on opening bowling. DB and Jordan opened up with a maiden apiece before DB struck with a wicket maiden taking the opener for 0. Jordan followed up with a double wicket maiden, taking the other opener via a Tom Robson catch and his replacement the next ball for a golden duck. Not wanting to be outdone, Dave pitched in with another couple of wickets in the next over without the batsmen troubling the scorer. A smart piece of fielding brought the next wicket as Josh Bastin and Conor Robson combined to take another batsmen for 0. Dave chipped in with another wicket, taking OWs to 16-7 from only 10 overs. He then completed the 5fer removing the only real resistance that had been showed from this disastrous innings. Not content to stop there, he removed the number 10 as well, leaving Heyford on the brink at 43-9. Bizarrely, the only genuine batsmen in this team seemed to come in at no. 11 and took an immediate liking to DB, carting him for three sixes to slightly ruin his figures which were stood at 19-6 before this late flourish. All in all it was a devastating spell built on pure aggression, the like of which we are unlikely to see from mild-mannered Dave until the return fixture. It was left to Raphe Young to clear up the innings with OWs finishing on 100 all out, at least making Heyford work for their win.

Tom Robson and Josh Bastin were sent to lead the charge in Heyford's response. Tom unfortunately fell for just one run leaving his brother Conor to step in and steal the limelight. A promising partnership of 41 runs was halted when Josh was bowled for 21. Joe Clare could not back up the brilliant batting displayed at the other end, adding only another run to score with Heyford now 51-4. A rare appearance for Pete Rice was also an unusually short one, he could only pick up a couple of boundaries before getting stuck LBW. Sean came and went quickly for a golden duck, bringing older brother Rhys to the crease who had taken the DB mantel of fighting the onslaught of sledging and downright stupid appealing. One particular ball flew past both bat and keeper before the howls went up leading to Rhys having a stern word with the man behind the stumps. One Heyfordian rose above the animosity to deliver a fantastic performance, hitting a 6 from his last scoring shot to not only win the game and bring up his 50 but also to earn hit the ultimate tekkers award this week. Take a bow Conor Robson. Rhys held on to finish 2* and Heyford take the momentum of another handsome win into next week.

Week 5

Rothwell Town 1st vs Heyford 1st

The 1st XI turned up at Rothwell on the back of another exhilarating batting performance, but were put in to field first. Captain Jimmy got off to the best possible start, removing the opener for a duck. He then took the other opener, also for a duck, via a catch from Linnell, back in the team after a week away. The next pair put on 49 runs before Gilder broke the partnership. It was Gilder again the number 5 batsman, leaving Rothwell reeling on 69-4. Balders struck to make it 5 wickets via a Jimmy catch for the cameras with 100 barely on the scoreboard. Rothwell's no.3 batted to get them back in shape before Balders took his key wicket 4 runs short of his half century, the score now 105-6. Will Cooper-Harris stepped up to take the next wicket with the help of Matt Baker behind the stumps. The next partnership lasted 48 runs and was broken by a run out from Jimmy, not content to watch a big run chase build. Jimmy was at it again, taking a third wicket with Rory taking the catch. With that, Rothwell finished the innings on 200-9, surely slim pickings for a side littered with big hitters in impressive form.

The 2nd innings was a bit shaky to say the least. Balders and Linnell opened up but this time the partnership proved less fruitful, Balders out for 9 with Legge following close behind for a duck. Hero of last week Martyn Cory could not repeat those heroics falling for 2, with Linnell falling shortly after for 9 leaving Heyford 26-4 and looking a long way from home. Rory and Jimmy were next at the crease with the latter departing just 2 runs later. Rory was next to go for 11, leaving the team on 42-6 and most of its batting gone. Matt Baker could only manage 1 run and Will Cooper-Harris fell for the second duck of the innings. Heyford were 48-8 are staring a second defeat square in the face before the heavens opened and ended the match with only 13 overs bowled in their innings. Jimmy will be breathing a sigh of relief as both teams pick up 3 league points.

Heyford 2nd vs St Crispin & Ryelands 3rd

The seconds were back at the playing fields after a drubbing from Pecky and his new mates last time out. Substantially ballasted by bad boy all rounder Shaun Boyson and part-time cricketer full time animal Scott Browne, Heyford were put into field. It wasn't long before Boyson showed his class, taking the opener for 1 run caught by Luca Delfino-Rice. He then picked up a double wicket maiden and an unbelievable tekkers award, one catch each for Scott and DB. Boyson quickly took another wicket, leaving 17-4 Boyson wickets. Not to be outdone, opening partner Jordan took a wicket caught by Sayeedul Haque. DB on as 2nd change took the next wicket caught by Jordan leaving St Crispins on 29-6 and well short of a good target. The next partnership took them some way out of the mire lasting 36 runs before rising star Raphe Young took a wicket via another DB catch. DB followed up a wicket of his own taking the no.3 batsman for 32. That was the last real resistance as Rhys and DB took another wicket a piece including a catch from Hopkins senior to end the innings on 68 runs after just 25 overs. If Heyford needed a gimme after last week they had just been handed one.

Graham Linnell and Scott Browne were tasked with ensuring the chase got off on the right foot, and Scott certainly managed that steering the 1st wicket partnership to 31 runs before Graham was out for 3 runs from an admirable 46 balls. Sayeedul was next to the crease but could add two more as Scott continued to torment the bowlers. Luca came in for a closer view of the fireworks at the other end, finishing on 1*. Scott carried his bat, hitting 61 unbeaten runs including 2 sixes, one of which earned him the unbelievable tekkers for its sheer gravity defying size. A fantastic 30 point win for the 2nds certainly lifted the team's spirits looking ahead to the rest of the season.

Player of the Week

Scott Browne- 129 points

A big batting performance along with 2 catches, one of them a stunner, perched Scott on top spot in his only appearance so far this season.

Manager of the Week

Chris Peck- Tops and Tails- 320 points

Pecky had the first and second best teams for point this week, both containing Scott Browne and Jimmy. Balders and Gilder chipped in with wickets and catches as well ensuring he made the most of a relatively low scoring weekend.

League Table

Leggie stands astride the table having knocked DB from the top spot. Pecky storms in to 2nd place jumping 9 others in the week. Rob Pardon's Wobbly Bobbly look strong and stable in third, whilst Lynsey and Naomi swap places to round out the top 5.

Week 4

Heyford 1st vs Oundle Town 2nd

Fresh from a strong batting performance the previous week Jimmy won the toss and elected to bat first. With Linnell away, Balders and Jimmy led the Heyford charge. It wasn't long before Jimmy was walking back to pavilion with his tail between his legs having only made 4. Balders followed soon after for 18 having blasted 3 boundaries in quick fashion. Leggie came in at 3 but was bowled for 3, leaving Heyford reeling on 27-3. The next partnership will go down in Heyford history as one of the most destructive ever seen at the playing fields. Martyn Cory and Garry, in at 4 and 5 respectively, began to marmalise the bowling. The stats speak for themselves, Cory raced to 50 and then to a maiden century from just 49 balls, a staggering feat. He continued, ably watched by Garry at the other end, until he was caught for 148 mesmerising runs from 66 balls including a whopping 16 sixes and 8 fours. The partnership was worth 171 runs and had knocked the stuffing from Oundle with Heyford now on 198-4. Gilder stepped up but managed only 6 runs before young gun Conor Robson made a further 12 with Heyford 265-7. Will Cooper-Harris and Rob Pardon added a useful 14 and 8 runs respectively, but their role was supporting another mature performance from Garry who hit his 2nd half century for the season. New boy Dylan Gill and Sayeedul Haque both came and went without troubling the scorers, leaving Garry stranded on 79* and Heyford 306 all out with 6 overs extra to bowl out the opposition and achieve their first win of the season.

Jimmy, fired up from his misfiring batting performance, returned to opening duties and promptly removed the opener for a duck, the batsman caught by Balders. The next partnership frustrated Heyford but was ended by a simple catch from Conor Robson of Jimmy's bowling. Balders then chipped in, taking the opener for 31 caught by Garry, and then the no. 4 caught by Sayeedul Haque, a leg-wobbler as described by those that saw it. With Oundle 88-4, Heyford had the upper hand. The next partnership of 91 halted the progress somewhat until Will Cooper-Harris took a vital wicket, following it up with another before Gilder struck again to take Oundle from 179-4 to 179-7 in a matter of overs. Balders struck again, taking the last recognised batsman with no chance of Oundle making the target. Jimmy followed up with another wicket, leaving Oundle looking home and hosed at 234-9 and Heyford with the extra overs to claim a final wicket. Cory and Rob Pardon stepped up to try and work their magic on the last remaining pair but it was to no avail. Oundle held out to give Heyford only a winning draw.

Sun Hardingstone 1st vs Heyford 2nd

Dave lost the toss, and if he would have his way we would leave the review of this match there. The 2nd team were a little short to say the least, nevertheless Linnell senior and Heyford stalwart Thomas 'Whitty' Whittaker stepped up to opening the batting. They could only manage 4 runs between them, with Joe in at no. 3 following without troubling the scorers. Laurence and Jordan provided the only real resistance in the middle of the innings, hitting 9 runs a piece before being bowled and caught by Ben Miller (not the comedian) and Ben Mellor respectively. Rhys could only add 1 before being run out. Benny Cawley and Aidan Webster unfortunately couldn't add to the runs tally before Dave Baker had the tail wagging. His 14 was the highest score as Graham Young fell for 1 concluding a innings to forget from an under strength side. That left Hardingstone with a target of 48 runs for victory.

DB was determined to give the new blood in the side the opportunity for some much needed bowling practice and rising stars Raphe Young and Benny Cawley bowled admirably given the difficult target to defend. Their bowling alongside Laurence, Jordan and DB and Rhys was eventually fruitless as Hardingstone made the runs without losing a wicket.

Player of the Week

Martyn Cory- 302 points

I have nothing more to add. If you had him in the team, you are now in contention for the manager's trophy.

Manager of the Week

Dave Baker- Last Year Wasn't My Fault

An apt name for this week's winner given the hammering the 2nd team were given this week. Lucky for DB he was top of the table for the fantasy cricket; Cory, Garry and Jimmy did the damage with Laurence also chipping in with some added extras.

League Table

Dave barnstorms his way to the top jumping 13 places in a week. Leggie senior (Simon), Rob Pardon and Leggie junior (Naomi) also climb from 7th, 8th and 16th respectively thanks to Cory's heroics, leaving last week's leader Lynsey teetering on the edge of the top 5.

Week 3

Stony Stratford 2nd vs Heyford 1st

Wanting to put the first couple of games firmly in the back of their minds, Jimmy promptly lost the toss and Heyford were put into bat. Balders and Linnell, the now dependable opening partnership, set off in a hurry. The partnership was broken however when Linnell was caught and bowled by the second change bowler, following two expensive opening spells, for 25. Leggie was next in to sure up the ship and initially played an admiral supporting role to Balders who raced to 66 with three 6s before being caught. Martyn Cory came and went for 10, hitting a maximum in the process. He did also provide some comedy gold in his brief cameo, as a lofted shot from Leggie plugged just out of sight from him prompting Cory to scream at him to run whilst stood next to Leggie as he marked his crease for the next ball. In form Garry then approached the crease and combined with Leggie as the latter passed his half century. Leggie was eventually stumped on 71 and Rory was not in for much longer, caught for 34 having hit a 6 in process. Gilder will be disappointed with his 11 having seen the other Heyford batsmen plunder the bowling and put the team in a commanding position. Captain Jimmy Edwards soon followed him and along with Matt Baker put Stony to the sword. Matt was bowled for 23 with one 6, however Jimmy showed his worth hitting a captains innings of 65* with three 6s. He later said that one of the 6s should have been worth 12 it was that big, and I am
