The opposition Secretary writes "Hi Peter,
I am emailing you with some bad news to say that I have been in contact with
the captain for Saturdays match and regret having to cancel. Various
circumstances, starting with the fact that three of our younger lads got
caught up in a nasty fight after some blokes tried to intimidate them in New
Cross, try to get their mobile phones off them. One got his jaw broken and
the other two were in bad condition. With a couple other players away I
cannot get up a team. Please accept my apologies."
The XI is : Rob Bastin* Jim Davies Oli Haill John Hill Matt Patel Jon Brown Joe Bennett Tom Brown Braden Grigg Sammy Purcell Darryl Roberts.
Camberwell Beauties is a new fixture against a fairly new club. Details
of the club can be found here http://www.camberwellbeauties-cc.org/. The
game is being played in Dulwich village. A map is available here
http://www.camberwellbeauties-cc.org/pitches.htm (the pitch is marked
A). Probably the best way to get there, if reliant on public transport,
is by train to North Dulwich (trains from London Bridge every 10-20
minutes, taking about 15 minutes). The game is down to start at 2pm. Be
good to get together at the latest by 1:30 to give some fielding and
warm up time.
