After last weeks’ (surprisingly) easy victory against Spencer this weeks’ opponents were Irthlingborough Town (IT) – from my aging memory, the last time GP played them was in the 2017 where we were rolled over twice meaning a tough game was expected. Three enforced changes to the team saw Rob, Ben & Luca make way for Ricki, Ryan & Darren. GP finally...

First game of the season and our first game in Division 11, sees us welcome back Spencer, who twice knocked us over last year and won Division 12 comfortably. It was touch and go whether the game would happen, the weather had been a factor all week and a lot of rain dropping on Friday...

Link to Scorecard After coming off the back of two unsuccessful chases versus Spencer Bruerne and Old in previous weeks, I could be forgiven for fearing the worst as GP found themselves in the field first on a hot day with a good pitch at Mears Ashby. Mears Ashby Innings GP had a difficult start...

Following the win last week and a midweek loss (by 2 runs) in a friendly which you could argue may not have been taken as seriously as it should, it was important GP continued to pick up points if it they want to push for promotion. With a weekend of expected thunderstorms, getting a game...

With the disappointment of last week, it was important for GP to get back to winning ways. This week the season entered the second half and we welcomed King’s Sutton to Not-So-Fortress Foxfields. With A. Day, L. Roberts and M. Everitt coming back in to the side, GP looked significantly stronger, in both the batting...

Grand Prix weekend saw us travel to Hinton in the Hedges (yes, thank you league fixture secretary, another game for us to have to travel past Silverstone on race weekend) to take on the side just below us in the league. Fielding a weakened team without Lee, Mark and Ash could somebody else step up to...

Half way through the season and everyone’s looking at the stats. Not whose top (we are now 2nd) but who is in pole position to take the duck from its latest owner, Matty ‘golfer’ Young. More on that later. To be fair it’s quite boring for the duck, 5 people have one blob whilst we...

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
