Sawston Cricket Club 

   Welcome to www.sawston.play-cricket.com the on line home of Sawston CC

Although the Rams, Sawston Cricket Club, have been established since 1853 we consider ourselves to be a young and progressive Club.

We welcome new members to join our Junior and Senior sections. We field teams from under-10s through to under-15's and six senior sides. Adults play league cricket on Saturdays and Wednesday evenings. Friendlies and cup matches are played on Sundays. So whatever your personal standard we can find a team to match to your ability.

We have an active social scene with most activities based around our new pavilion and bar.

As well as new players we are always on the look out for volunteers and social members.

You can find details about the Club, its fixtures and results (plus the occasional light-hearted match report) and Club news by clicking on the appropriate tab at the top of the page.

Another day, another trophy. Sam's 60 and Griggos' 53 saw Sawston to 151 for 4 as the Mighty Rams comfortably defeated Abington to clinch the Adams Harrison Midweek league (with one round still to go). This completes a fabulous League and Cup double. 

As one transfer window prepares to shut, Sawston do late business to recruit Amit Gupta from Haverhill and Sam Snoxall from Granta.

Well done to the Super Rams in winning the Adams Harrison Cup away to Haverhill. Sawston batted first and posted an impressive 182 for 3 in their 20 overs. Haggy gave the innings a strong start, before jug ducking for 47, before Marc Pearson (double jugged ducked) fireworks in a MoM performance of 92. Haverhill were dismissed for 124, as they lost wickets in their attempt to match the Sawston scoring rate. VB picked up 4-41. (See Facebook page for pictures)


In our only game of the day, with the first's washed out at Wisbech, the seconds got their title challenge back on track with a 40 run win at home to Camborne. Despite the early loss of 'Prodigious', Haggi and Marc Pearson appeared to be taking us to 250+. However, Haggi was updone playing his third or fourth shot at the bowlers slower ball. Stand in skipper Griggos played his 'George Groves' innings, 'landing a few lusty blows before running out of gas'. Marc went on to his second fine 50 of the week, and Sam added a few cultured shots before a late collapse saw the home side gfall just short of 200. It was good to see the East Anglian Ambulance service haven't lost their sense of humour, as one of their vehicles on full 'blues and twos' slowed to a precautionary crawl as Harv and Dirk 'sprinted' a two!

The visitors, despite the loss of a couple of early wickets, looked set to mount a significant challenge as the Sawston seamers fed them a diet of half trackers. Will was fearing the worst (but then again he always does) before the President suggested that the introduction of the spin twins Salar and McCormick would turn the tide.  This prediction was justified as Salar picked up four and Dirk three? There were a few amazing catches, one from the 'OB-one' and three or four from 'Prodigious' - although I think it only went down as one in the book!

A mixture of 2nd and 3rd Team players and a blend of youth and experience saw Sawston II’s into the Junior Cup Final.  Sawston won the toss and elected to bat. Despite losing their first three wickets with the score under 50  Haggi (129) notched his third century of the season (reached just before drinks at 20 overs) as he added over a hundred with Crackers (38). The latter batting for 22 overs, yes 22, which is more than the aggregate of the rest of his career! He has clearly picked up some tips from his girlfriend's batting video! Late runs from Salar (38 not out) and Alex Stearn (24 not out) took Sawston to an impressive 259 for 6. Despite never quite being up with the required rate Milton put up a spirited reply as the made 211 for 9 in their 40 overs, completed just before the storm arrived. Liam Dye made an impressive 82 before 'Billy' (Kalyanasundaram)  added a quickfire 43. Sawston shared the wickets around as Baig (3-51), Griggos (2-38) and Champy (2-40) all notched.

The National Newspapers were full of stories that the left handed skipper, so vulnerable outside off stump and short of confidence was about to resign following another failure yesterday. I for one hope he stays - cmon Griggos!
 
President's Pint: There should have been a clear winner this week but unfortunately he blotted his copy book. So the winner this week was yesterday's match winner Salar. 

In celebration of another Junior Cup Final appearance the President awarded a second PP of the weekend. And the winner was obviously Crackers!
