Season Update
Today's date is

Wednesday 17th
Hot Work

Cheriton visited for the first time, Buckland on Saturday on what proved a very hot day. With drinks breaks every 15 overs, Cheriton where put into the field, Ben's 5for and two one handed catches proved the highlights. In reply Brendan's 81 not out showed how it should be done, sadly the team fell 10 runs short.

Monday 20th May
Troubles Away

After a good 9 wicket win at home to league new boys Lifton. Cheriton stumbled, away at Newton st Cyres, firstly in the mid week game against Crediton Inn, with only Ben's 51 not out being worthy of note. Then, on Saturday at the same pitch Cheriton fell short after a gallant run chase. Honours go to Grant for his first century in Cheriton colours and Gary for finsihing 64 not out, their second wicket partnership of 171 will take some beating. All please note the Erratics game on Thursday has been cancelled and there is now a Net session at the ground followed by a committee meeting at the pub afterwards.

Thursday 9th May
Three games in six days

Yesterday saw Cheriton playing away at Killerton against the appropriately named 8 man Nomads team, not to be out done Cheriton started the game with only 7 players. A concentrated batting performance meant Cheriton over took their opponents with 2 overs to spare. Cheriton lost their first league game against Exeter Civil Service, as they just didn't put enough runs on the board and left the bowlers with too much to do. Thanks go to Mike and Robbie, for their respective umpiring and scoring. Another tight against the Beer engine went the way of the visitors.

Monday 29th April
The season starts in earnest

Another tight game on Thursday, saw the spoils go to Yeoford winning in the last over. Sunday saw Cheriton post a very healthy score which the visitors struggled to reach in a reduced over game. The highest accolades go to the tea, gracefully supplied by Exeter Network and worth the match fee alone. To reiterate Mike will be organising the teams for the mid week games, and we will be using Teamer for the weekend games. If you receive a text or email from teamer, it means you have been picked to play and you need to accept or decline as quickly as possible, so standby players can be contacted.

Friday 19th April
Weather holds off for the Met Office

As is typical in sport the weather was kind against the Met Office, except for the biting wind and Cheriton managed to start the 2013 season with a tightly won Twenty20 game. Honours go to Mike, John and Peter for work on the ground to ensure it was in remarkably good condition. Next game is against Yeoford at home on Thursday 25th, contact Mike if you are interested in playing.

Wednesday 17th April
Two nil to the weather

The british weather claimed its second game on Sunday, with the Bradninch game being cancelled. Fingers are crossed for the mid-week Twenty20 game, ironically against the Met Office. Pre-Season indoor nets have now finished and the plan (again weather permitting) is to start the outdoor nets at the ground, starting Tuesday 23rd April 18:00.

Monday 8th April
Season Opener

Sadly the scheduled first friendly game against Bridford had to be cancelled, with mutual agreement. Focus is now on readying the ground and players for the Bradninch game on Sunday 14th. If you've been contacted by Teamer then please respond quickly or if your interested in playing let Mike or Paul know. Early award goes to Mark English for best pre-season injury (broken wrist) with some exhuberant rugby action.
