London Erratics Provide Match Report for GCC

The London Erratcs (great name!) were founded in 1974 for ‘recreation and refreshment’ which is a good enough reason for me. They (well, 9 of them) visited Spring Lane on the 17th of August and were good enough to provide your correspondent (who was otherwise hung over engaged) with match details. GCC

Magick and Mythticism

Next to the unconscious form of the bar manager, a pith helmet lay upturned. A small fire had broken out in the corner of the room. A solitary tooth was embedded in the table, glinting in the pale moonlight. Grantchester’s annual cricket tour had come to Stiffkey. 12 hours prior, Captain Steve Wilson was inspecting …

“I don’t believe it!”

In a jovial reminder to members of the forthcoming  Sawston match I had lightheartedly referred to the unfinished match of 170 years ago in August 1843. The game finished abruptly when according to the press report: “After two of the Grantchester men had been in for some time for their last innings, the Sawston, not …
