Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Capio came up with the idea, very much just a suggestion, but could we drum up enough interest for a game?

re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Ok slight rephrase,

I would be up for playing cricket depending on the date, time and venue of such occasion.

ive_lost_me_flag Posted on 19/7 23:19
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Lets clarify a few things, Ive only played cricket twice before and both times it was with a small plank of wood and a tennis ball. The only time Ive been involved in a game with a corker and a real bat n stumps I got 0 runs and was out on the 2nd ball, I dont understand how to bowl so I just throw it underarm. I am shitt and know it, but I might as well give it a try, wen you have the likes of Esky, 85 and ch playing footy at their standard then I dont feel so worried about playing cricket after all.

A_New_Era Posted on 19/7 23:20
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

flag, you tell us how crap how are then insult us, then asked to be placed on the list to play

Stepper_T Posted on 19/7 23:21
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Dont worry, Flaggy it's more fun than anything i hope. However, underarm bowling is NOT allowed. We are not 6 ffs.

ive_lost_me_flag Posted on 19/7 23:22
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Aye Im a simple person, do things the easy way. And I refuse to be S_Ts shower buddy.

WOT? Please, I really am that bad, I spose I cud throw the ball at your face but thats the best I cud muster for a bowl.

BigBadSteve Posted on 19/7 23:26
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

Are you looking to put together two teams or would you like some opposition?

chboro Posted on 19/7 23:26
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

If you hit the ball as hard as you kick one flaggy boy then you may get half a run before you are OUT!!!!!!!!

ive_lost_me_flag Posted on 19/7 23:28
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Why cant I play?

Not this again, leave Flag out, thats right, just becos Im better than you all.

A_New_Era Posted on 19/7 23:28
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

BigBadSteve - looking to put two teams together, playing an actual team would be a pointless thing, we would get mullered

ive_lost_me_flag Posted on 19/7 23:31
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Serious question - Am I allowed to play?

A_New_Era Posted on 19/7 23:32
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

serious answer - ill think about it, if you cant actually play cricket liked you described i see no point

ive_lost_me_flag Posted on 19/7 23:33
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Esky, Ill be honest, there was no joking and no exaggeration in my post but Id really like to play. Its a laf right? Thats wot its all about? If it was serious you wudda been kicked out of the goals team a long time ago.

BigBadSteve Posted on 19/7 23:33
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

Pencil me in then, but I might not be available as I work away a lot. I must warn you however that I'm really rather good!




























Well I was twenty years ago anyway!

Stepper_T Posted on 19/7 23:33
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Esky

Im not very good at bowling- can bowl but like a spinner without the spin.

Flaggy, you can carry the drinks.

chboro Posted on 19/7 23:34
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Flaggy - list all the players you can remember(from footy) and give YOUR HONEST opinions of them - then we will decide.

ive_lost_me_flag Posted on 19/7 23:36
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Wot players?

I wont piss about, I wont bowl, but I can field, I know how to throw and catch, not much more to fielding than that.

Flag - Best player there
Rev - Good defender
Kriv - Decent player
Missed someone - uh-oh

Skeelo - Fiery but quite good
Esky - Shitt
Boro85 - Actually quite good altho Dorivaish qualities
boro1989 - quick and strong
Lesbianlegend - decent player

re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Batting, I take wild swings so itll probably result in either a duck or a multiple of 6 becos wen I connect I hit em hard altho thats quite rare.

re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

It IS a proper pitch. The Parklands cricket team played there for years, not sure if they exist this year though. Even had pavillion till recently.

It will be a perfect venue.

Im not really that arsed about wanting to play but I would suggest Acklam Grange School field,noticed it had a cricket pitch when we play footy up there, duno if its still up.

re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

oh no, a cricket bat thorwn under arm, how will i avoid such power

Stepper - by any chance is that to do with it being a 2 minute walk from where you live and stalk ?

Possibly, Esk. I will go down there tomorrow and check it out and let you know of it's suitability. Ok?

Stepper - yes that sounds ideal mate. What are chances of availability, dont wan to organise it and then turn up only to find people on it?

ive_lost_me_flag Posted on 20/7 1:24

Closer to South Bank. Wheres the actual pitch?

Smifter Posted on 20/7 1:25
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

It really is Flag, I think you are a bit mixed up, the skippers lane we are on about is definitely in Normanby

Stepper_T Posted on 20/7 1:26

Not closer to anything, it IS IN Normanby. Opposite the Pov (almost)

I'll play providing I'm not at work-as I mentioned on other thread Mill Hill has 2 pitches for midweek league which should still be marked out on sundays-no parkie around so shouldn't be disturbed
I think I can get stumps and possibly other equipment-got loads of old cricket balls.

If I was running this....which I am not...firstly I would get the football game over and see how reliable many are and then move onto the cricket, whilst drumming up interest. Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one;)

A_New_Era Posted on 20/7 11:57

re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

Esky-I work ~10% of the time I'm there -do 2 days and 2 nites then 4 days off(with 18 days off every 7 weeks)

Mill Hill is on St Marys Walk off Green Lane-if anyone lives near can they pop into check its still unused on Sundays(not sure if used on Saturdays or not)

re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

Now that we have a decent number on the list, can I add to Rochey's points and ask for confirmation of -

*what we've got
*what we might have
*what we need

Thinking of pitch / bats/ball/pads/stumps / gloves / wicket keepers gloves/ box's/ etc

blotonthelandscape Posted on 21/7 9:08
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

Give Mel at Normanby Hall CC a ring, as long as you can promise to drink the bar dry I am sure they will give you a deal on the pitch and changies.

capio Posted on 21/7 10:58
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

I have 2 bats
a ball
2 sets of pads
keeper gloves
1 set of batting gloves

so we need...couple more sets of pads
some keeper pads
stumps
set of batting gloves
few spare balls

6 stones so the umpire can keep track of the overs ;)

a couple of boxes
thigh pad
and if anybody under 18 plays I believe by law we must have a helmet.

dundeejock Posted on 21/7 11:33
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

think I can get stumps(and hopefully bails)
depending on when match is I may be able to look after our teams equipment for a week -so pads,gloves(poss w/keepers gloves),bat(s)should be in there and I have loads of old used cricket balls
I have also got a box (NOT for sharing) and a helmet if required

Esky, Normanby Hall Cricket Club is excellent if you could get it tho. NHCCboro is mels username, but I dont think he hardly comes on, but worth getting in touch, has a good club(bar) as well.

Stepper_T Posted on 22/7 1:10

Normanby Hall play on a Saturday.

wouldnt you normanby lot be better getting in touch, easier for you if you liev near and you can strike up an agreement

We are looking to get this game in 2 weeks time, obviously on a weekend, a sunday if they play on a sat, and you lot will obviously drink the place dry if he lets us use the place

holgate_rochey Posted on 22/7 10:05
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

I've just found a helmet aswell. Getting a ball is no trouble either. I've got a box, but again, not for sharing.

Stepper_T Posted on 24/7 0:14
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Normanby Hall do not hire out their pitch.

So it looks like either Parklands or British Steel

A_New_Era Posted on 24/7 0:18
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

that british steel one is worth checking out, altho its a distance its a propa pitch and its available to book

Stepper_T Posted on 24/7 0:24
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Yes, and im sure us with cars wont mind picking people up. It does sound the best option to me.

Smifter Posted on 24/7 0:25
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Stepper please can you explain to me where it is..

Stepper_T Posted on 24/7 0:33
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

No need , Smifter- you're in my car

Go straight down trunk road toward Redcar- turn left at British Steel roundabout i think.

Smifter Posted on 24/7 0:35
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Thanks Stepper, no pubs near by Is the closest one the Magnet?

Stepper_T Posted on 24/7 0:37
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Probably Smifter, yes. Although there is a British Steel Club though never been.

I would still like to have it at Smiths Dock (The Parklands) but not sure hoe good the pitch will be as they havent played on it for a year.

dundeejock Posted on 24/7 11:03
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cricket?

Is the British Steel one in Dormanstown-is so its crap-not a blade of grass on it-and we were all out for 19 a couple of seasons ago

A_New_Era Posted on 24/7 23:16
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

This seems to have taken a back seat, but we really could do with a venue and that gives people chance to see if they can make it

ive_lost_me_flag Posted on 24/7 23:19
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

Esky this seems to be takin forever to organize, I have a suggestion, Maltby cricket club, technically its nowhere near Maltby, its just outside Ingleby Barwick opposite the car garage near Teesside Industrial estate.

Another place, a fair distance away, but a good pitch is Stokesly, I remember watching some mates play there once, good place to play.

Shaun71 Posted on 24/7 23:20
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

Shaun71 Posted on 24/7 23:21
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

That was my home pitch Stokesley Cricket Club. Excellent little club there too.

Im sure theres a pitch near the roundabout as you go into Great Broughton too

Smifter Posted on 24/7 23:21
re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

Flaggy may have come up with a gem here! I remember when working at Npower some staff had a cricket match there, does anyone know what the pub is called?

re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

Well, not quite true, more becos its 1 of only 2 I know of. But Im sure theres a fair few people on the list who live in Ingleby, Yarm, Thornaby etc.

See Esky, according to these 2, I aint just a pretty face.

re: Could i interest anyone in a game of cric

Flaggy
Stokesly and probably Maltby grounds will be used on Saturdays and Sundays
still think we should gatecrash Mill Hill-as I 've said pitch markings from midweek matches should still be evident and there's no Parkie so we dont have to pay.But if we dont want to take any chances about being kicked off we should be able to book it thro Parks dept-it costs ~37 for our league matches

Prissick may also be hireable-booking office is in Stewarts Park
