2020    A SEASON LIKE NO OTHER!

With the Covid lockdown delaying the start of the season until the middle of July, the usual divisional league system was replaced by a seven week qualifying period followed by a straight knock-out to determine the champions of each division. 


The games were shorter in length with earlier start times (to allow for hand sanitation breaks every 6 overs), and the use of changing rooms and the traditional "cricket tea" were scrapped in favour of a "bring your own" variety.
Consequently, all three of our teams qualified for the knockout stages with our Second Eleven proving most successful - winning seven games to reach the final of division three where they were unfortunate to lose to Northampton Saints.
Our First team won six of their encounters and the Thirds came out on top in three games.


Matthew Jones topped the First team batting with 220 runs (passing 10,000 runs for Wollaston First team), Mark Ralph notched 154 for the Seconds and Craig Boddington was not far behind with 139 runs for the Thirds. Matthew and Mark both scored centuries. 
Chris Perry took 19 First team wickets, Steve Musgrave 27 for the Seconds and Adrian Ward 14 for the Thirds.

Marcus Shelton has now  passed 5000 runs for the Seconds including a record thirty five fifties, Chris Perry has taken a First Team "sixfer" eleven times and Paul Jones has reached 16,681 runs spread across the three teams. (for all the records click here)

Hopefully things will be able to revert to a more normal scenario in 2021, but no doubt some of the changes may be adopted permanently if it means  that cricket can go ahead in the future. Fingers crossed!

2010                        DAVID WARNER  STOPS OFF AT THE HOME OF CRICKET                        

 

 

David Warner of Eastern Suburbs, NSW & Australia paid a visit to Wollaston CC on Friday and Saturday.

 He is a friend of First Eleven skipper Steve Musgrave and opening bowler Max Abbott.

David stopped over in Wollaston en-route from Durham to meet up with the Aussie 20 / 20 Squad in London.

 He autographed bats and photographs for some of our junior players.

PATRICK BRIGHT

NORTHAMPTONSHIRE CRICKET LEAGUE YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR 2013

 

At the Annual NCL League Presentation night at Wicksteed Park Pavilion, Patrick Bright received a Young Player of the League Award from former England Chairman of Selectors, David Graveney in recognition of a wonderful season with the bat.

Patrick who was aged fourteen during the season scored 473 league runs, averaging 28.13 for the Seconds and scored a scintillating century against Podington off just 117 balls.

A worthy recipient and a great honour for Wollaston.

 

Below, England selector David Graveney presents Patrick with his trophy, and congratulates  Chris Perry on his seventy premier wickets

SUMMING UP 2008

 So despite only winning 3 games, drawing 4 and losing 12, the first eleven earned enough points to climb above both Burton and Irthlingborough to move up to tenth position in the premier division.

Chris Perry took 45 wickets which is a remarkable achievement at this level and his 188 runs confirmed that he should emerge as a genuine all-rounder over the next few years. Steve Musgrave, who has justifiably claimed this description while at Wollaston,  also had a good season taking 35 wickets to add to his 437 runs, and along with Dave Mercer claimed the new fourth wicket partnership  against Burton Latimer. Mercer also scored 280 runs at an average of 46.67 to go with his 15 wickets at 14.33

The second elevenís season was an improvement over 2007, this year finishing in third  position in division three. Thirteen games were won, 4 drawn and only 3 games ended in defeat.

Andy Luck excelled with bat and ball (414 runs and 38 wickets) , Mark Carter finished with 329 runs at 65.80 and both Paul Jones and Darren Laughton scored over 300 runs.  Adrian Ward and David Clarkson picked up 32 and 26 wickets respectively and were backed up by Mike Duddle (21) and John Pike (19).
