I arrived at Foxfields on a glorious day, lots of sun, not too hot and some nice fluffy white clouds in the sky to watch from the boundary rope. Tony won the toss and decided to have a bowl first rather than cook the opposition like he did a few weeks back against Rushden and...

Excited does not begin to describe how I felt on Saturday morning – and at my age that is quite something. After a week off I had already finished the “tank top” I had been knitting for my grandson’s 50th birthday present – obviously in the Foxes colours. I was not going to let the...

Well my hip has been giving me a bit of jip this week but some warmer weather and the spectacle of a clash of unbeaten teams was all I needed to encourage me to make my way down to Foxfields to see my boys. Tony won the toss and decided to try and cook the...

With Dot going AWOL, it’s Noble here to sit in on blog duties. After a week off (as St Crispins were unable to raise a side for the match on the 18th May), our lads find themselves sitting at the top of table 4 weeks in (and having played an extra game).  Here’s hoping they...

broken fortress, grange park vs old 3rds
Link to Scorecard Fortess Foxfields? Meh… You welcomed Old 3rds to Foxfields on Saturday, an eagerly awaited contest after giving them a cricketing lesson 2 seasons ago. As a point of note I did check the NCL fixtures and due to a number of teams pulling out in Division 7 their 2nd XI didn’t have a...

Wow, it’s been a very long time! I apologise for my absence, but frankly, as you’ve been such a miserable, anti-social bunch, I didn’t feel like there was much point! So you’ve played four games of the first 6 of your fixtures and what a mixed bag it’s been. This is just a brief round-up...

Sorry for being on hiatus for a year, I came to watch a few times, but I kept falling asleep in my chair! So a new season, a new start, a new skipper, and quite a few new faces, plenty of opportunity to sharpen my tongue… New skipper pinny won the toss and elected to field,...

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
