  • Steeple Aston CC vs Blenheim Park CC 13th September 2020

    Yet again we find ourselves playing at one of the iconic grounds in Oxfordshire . The scene was set for a perfect day’s cricket – Angol/Engel/Spearmans et al what could possibly go wrong ? Malcolm won the toss and elected to field , a brave shout as Allan E had yet to appear and Coxy […]

  • Sheepscombe vs BPCC – 6th September 2020

    Picture the scene. A young family awakes one September Sunday to see the sun shining and quickly the realisation dawns on them that today is to be the day when they all get to play cricket together – for the men’s team – possibly for the first time ever. Excitement, anticipation, anxiety and high hopes […]

  • BPCC vs Thame – 30th August 2020

    Shaw tames the oppo! Initially our batting line up looked a little light. However we had not accounted for Will Shaw. That’s Will Shaw, not to be confused with that County of carrot crunchers to the south west – this was Will Shaw the proud Yorkshireman (like there’s any other type). After a nervy start, […]

  • Broadhalfpenny Brigands vs BPCC – 23rd August 2020

    Let us never speak of this day again.

  • BPCC vs South Wales Hunts CC

    “Too Good, Too Young, Too Hot!”   It seems each morning and each day in the past week the temperature had been rising, little did we know it would peak on the sunny Sunday where Blenheim Park CC would host the South Wales Hunts. Everyone arrived at the pitch side to witness what could have […]

  • BPCC vs The Cricketer’s Club CC – 26th July 2020

    So to our annual fixture against the rather eccentric and non aggressive blazered “Cricketers Club”XI featuring the talisman Pete Langman. BPCC chose to bat and captain Phil Boardman got a beauty that came in and just clipped the off stump 3rd ball . Keyes joined Simon Parker, his first scoring shot a six straight over […]

  • BPCC vs Stonor CC – 15th September 2019

    On the eve of our final game at the back end of the season when preparations should have been in full swing, the pitch prep possie turned out to only to find the Palace closed due to an embarrassing toilet incident. Yes, a fully functioning solid gold toilet had been stolen and thus a flood […]

  • Swinbrook CC vs BPCC – 8th September 2019

    Our latest excursion saw us in the scenic Windrush Valley as we paid a visit to Swinbrook’s picture postcard pitch beside the pub and river. We batted first and got off to a flyer with Boardman and Keyes taking us to 56 before the latter was caught for 40. Maximums (but not much else) were […]

  • Sheepscombe CC vs BPCC – 1st September 2019

    In the absence of ‘David Hughes (Club Secretary) and author of humorous match reports’ (as quoted from page 46 of David Levison’s Book ‘Remarkable Cricket Grounds’), it lies to me to fill you in with the basic match facts & stats. So if its humour you are looking for, look away now. As we rocked […]

  • Isis CC vs BPCC – 26th August 2019

    In a weekend of unprecedented comebacks and with an enforced break from the South Lawn we all headed East (without our usual captain, West) to take on everything Isis could launch at us. We lost the toss and remarkably on such a hot, bright, sunny Bank Holiday afternoon, we were inserted. Did the oppo have […]
