Afternoon my foxes (and those readers from afar) I arrived at Foxfields for only the second time for a league game this year and felt a bit strange and wary this time around. There was an ominous gloom in the air and I must say I nearly blew away as I set up my chair...

Good day my dear Foxes… (and, so I hear, those further afield). Saturday was our first ever fixture against a Wellingborough Town side, and you boys packed me up all nice and warm and transported me over to a rather cloudy and dreary field in the middle of Higham Ferrers, the ground looked half decent,...

Hello my lovelies, We’re back for another week of sunshine and sanitising! This time my mighty Foxes headed off into the villages and came up against a Braunston side who had enjoyed a solid start to the season. To my surprise, it seems as though the lawnmower had broken earlier in the week as a...

Finally, cricket was returning to the Foxfields fortress with my Foxes taking on St Michaels CC not to be confused with St Michaels Bugbrook who are a different team, apparently.

Despite what had been a fantastic week for my foxes, securing promotion last week with victory over Obelisk in convincing fashion, and the weather being beautiful all week, I arrived at Foxfields on what was a gloomy, potentially wet day. None the less spirits were high amongst the GP boys, with a very strong field...

Coming off a win against the Old Northamtonians, Obelisk game was an important game for the foxes, as we had keep the promotion dream alive. By all accounts this was our bogey team at the bogey ground (if I am not mistaken). Having chatted to some of the team mates, many of them were ready...

GP were under a lot of pressure on what must have been one of the windiest days for cricket ever, after a dreadful lost to Rushden Cricket wankers (according to the cycling youths😂) a win was all I wanted to see from my foxes. Tiger won the toss and put them in to bat. Brilliant...

About Us

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of
