Barford Cricket Club

A friendly cricket club based in Warwickshire

2012 – Bath

Rain Mike Ireland (veteran seamer and occasional funky tweaker) has cunnily renegotiated of swift return to Bath, hosted by the furry Geordie himself Mike Watts. Since his self-enforced exile from leafy Warwickshire, Mike has set the pub cricketing world alight (or would if he’d been able run a bit faster – see here for further details). In the words of our beloved secretary: “Clearly the hairy boozer isn’t as quick out the traps as he used to be….” – there’s clearly only one way to settle this….

There are a number of tour virgins this year (one of who is making their captaincy debut for good measure), so expect the Judge to be merciless (in his infinite wisdom). All four are making their tour debuts on the Friday night fixture which must be some sort of record! After last year’s heroic performance by the Hawkins twins it’s great to report that the Griffin twins will be on tour together, and Saturday’s game marks possibly the only time in the clubs history when two pairs of twins have taken the field together…
