Many have put their name forward, but only 11 could be chosen.
You will all be very glad to hear that a number of those on central contracts took on the Coldecotts (spelling?) at Goodwood yesterday and we have started the season with a fine victory. Expertly captained by Harry, we never really looked in trouble. Great batting from him and some fantastic spells with the ball from Fred and Ted. Harry’s mate Tom Ford looks like an excellent addition to our squad (but nothing like the fashionista) and I am convinced we will be able to give a better report of ourselves this year against the village. Anyway, enough of the past, what of the team for the 10th? It is:
I might say Dr Trev, after so many years of telling me that he was ‘orf games’, played for the opposition yesterday, was their top scorer and reminded me of just how tricky he was to get out. You will all be hugely relieved to hear that he is bringing his whites and is making himself available as 12th man. Luckily there are 4 weeks until the match, having kept wicket and scored a 50 runs I somehow doubt he is feeling entirely nimble and youthful today!
