Halford Hewitt 2019 Report

After taking up multiple column inches celebrating the success of the 2018 Hewitt, it is only right that we do report on the 2019 efforts, if only seeking to take up far less in the form of celebratory glow. This year’s effort was disappointing. One of the best teams that Winchester has fielded, and defending champions no less came up against some challenges and conditions that they were unable to […]

OWGS v Westminster – Saturday 30th March

A glorious sunny spring day at Royal St George’s. Wonderful all round. Apart from the score. The OW side could probably have made a decent fist of playing in the Cricketer Cup with luminaries such as James Irvine-Fortescue, Ed Craig, Jeremy Wilkins, Tristan Hanson and Ryan O’Keeffe in attendance alongside the match manager. Sadly though, for the match stats at least, we weren’t playing cricket. In the morning, all the […]
