  • Bentworth vs Overton II – 26th August 2017

    Bentworth 182/6, Overton II 183/7 And so, the End is Near as the opening line goes from one of the many joyous odes from the late, great Sex Pistols (amongst others). However BCC decided this was the time to try and change the tune with an urgently needed late win, which, if the planets aligned… Read more

  • Bentworth CC v Easton & Martyr Worthy 2nds – 19th August 2017

    Match Report – Apologies to Jane Austen It is a truth universally acknowledged that two teams near the bottom of any league table will, when encountering each other, play a crunch match. This, dear reader, is the tale of one such match played out beneath cloud studded skies near the fair town of Winchester in… Read more

  • Bentworth vs Donnington – 12th August 2017

    Donnington 263 all out, BCC 217-8 It’s been 5 weeks since we last had a match, courtesy of one blank weekend and three wet ones. So what has happened since we were all last here? Significantly, Tom has had a baby, (well, technically his wife has) making the good Doctor a grandfather for a second… Read more

  • Bentworth v Odiham & Greywell IIs – 8th July 2017

    A wonderful sunny day Bentworth ground looking in fine fettle, splendid new caps in a fetching pastel shade of blue (advert: courtesy of Ken’s sister) and a team of 11 good men and true – featuring a few returning heroes and some newer faces – what could be better? Time to play cricket for the… Read more

  • Bentworth vs Crown Taverners, Saturday 1st July

    Bentworth vs Crown Taverners, Saturday 1st July A lovely, sunny Saturday in Bentworth meant that it was time for another crack at breaking the winless streak, this time against mid-table Crown Taverners. It certainly appeared to be a game to chase runs down, with the plan being to put the opposition in, so over to… Read more

  • Silchester vs Bentworth Match Report – 24th June 2017

    BCC 124 all out; Silchester 128 – 0 It would be fair to say that over recent seasons, Bentworth Cricket Club and winning cricket matches have been distant cousins, only rarely on speaking terms. So a trip to top of the table and as yet unbeaten Silchester was akin to an invite to a family… Read more

  • BCC v Ashford Hill 17th June 2017

    A searingly hot summer Saturday brought BCC’s 6th full match of the season and with it their 7th wicket keeper – Mr. James Harding stepping in on this occasion at short notice. And with it came an early chance to show off his batting thanks to a change of tactics from skip. A flurry of… Read more

  • Bentworth vs East Woodhay Match Report – 10th June 2017

    Another game, another chase. Winning this weeks coin toss, skip (through judgement or hope) decided on putting the opposition in first after absorbing the conditions at Holt End. Just like previous weeks, the upper order of the opposing team played with fire and won. Mr McGrath provided his usual rhythm with his usual homogeneous figures…. Read more

  • Holybourne vs Bentworth C.C. Match Report – 3rd June 2017

    After our run chase the previous week, Nick was back out in the middle to carry out his feud with the coin  on what promised to be a lovely day. Sadly, the coin still had the upper hand on the new skip and the oppo decided have a go with the bat first. A great… Read more
