Match Reports 2016

CCC vs Thoiry

Posted by: Anonymous on Monday July 11, 2016 (12:34:49)
With Chantilly Cricket Club having started the 2016 season with one win and one loss, this match against Thoiry at the Apremont Oval would be the one to tip the scales one way or another.

During the week, the CCC XI was put together in record time, and a fine crowd turned up to watch the match. Was this due to the fact that this was captain and president Nick Clarke's final match?
If so, would they see another century from the only club member to have ever reached the elusive three-figure milestone?

Having lost the toss and being asked to field first, the CCC players, with a strong bowling line-up, knew from past experience that Thoiry was capable of putting on big totals.

Robin and Adrian opened up with the new ball. Robin bowled excellent line and length; his paternity leave and lack of sleep seeming to have had no ill effect on his bowling. He picked up two wickets (one was a catch in the glue-like hands of Adrian, and the other was clean bowled!), which gave CCC the early boost they needed.

At the other end, Adrian was having a little more trouble, with several deliveries being sent to (and over) the boundary during his 3 over spell. At this point, Jonathan Taylor, Thoiry's key batsman, was starting to look dangerously comfortable.

Bowling changes were made, with Shaban and Jimmy coming on. Shaban proved to be a handful for the batsmen as usual, but neither bowler could take wickets (Jimmy still hasn't taken one this year!), as the Thoiry total continued to steadily climb.

Following drinks, another bowling change was ordered, with Eddy and Saravanan coming on. Bringing on opening bowlers around the half way mark is an interesting tactic, but would it pay off for CCC?    more ...

Match Reports 2016

CCC vs British Embassy

Posted by: webmaster on Monday May 30, 2016 (11:52:04)
Ready to bat
With a newly flattened pitch, and a newly laid mat, the players of Chantilly Cricket Club were eager to get out in the middle for their first match of the 2016 season against the British Embassy.

Could CCC continue their good form of 2015? How would the new pitch play? Would the British Embassy have any players that actually worked for the British Embassy? Read on to find out.....

On a pleasant, sunny afternoon, CCC batted first, in what would be a 35 over match.

The Embassy's opening bowler looked rather sharp, and proved to be quite effective, as he immediately made inroads into the CCC batting order. In the blink of an eye, CCC were 3 down with only 17 runs on the board; Nick S, Shaban, and new-comer Azher, all going cheaply.

Eddy and Saravanan steadied the ship though, and managed to begin accumulating some runs, but it wasn't to last, as Eddy was given caught behind on 18, with the ball 'possibly' knicking his gloves on the way past his bat towards the wicket-keepers gloves.

This brought Jimmy to the crease, as he and Saravanan found ways to collect some more runs, before Saravanan found himself walking back to the 'Pavillion'. (bench)

Nick C then strode out to the middle to join Jimmy, who had begun finding the middle of his bat surprisingly early in the season. The two middle-order batsmen started building a useful partnership that took the Chantilly total past 100.    more ...

Chantilly 1st Scouts

The Scouts take to the forest in the hunt for SPECTRE

Posted by: ChantillyScouts on Friday November 20, 2015 (06:39:23)
Two groups of brave scouts and explorers set off through the Chantilly forests on the 7th November to find clues that would lead them to their final base, and save the world.

The Explorers went on bicycles in one direction, while the Scouts started hiking and following clues and Geocaches from Chantilly, to Pontarme to Thiers sur Theve.
The Explorers caught up with the Scouts a couple of kilometres before the final destination on the Butte aux gens d’armes and we travelled the last section together.

A meal of jacket potatoes and beans were cooked around the fire, under the stars of a beautiful warm evening that felt more like May than November!

The scouts will be attending the Chantilly Kermesse on the 28th November.
The next meeting is on the 5th December.

Chantilly Scouts celebrate 150 years of St Peter’s church with the Anglo community

Posted by: ChantillyScouts on Sunday October 04, 2015 (08:34:40)
On Saturday 3rd October, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers came together to celebrate 150 years since St Peter’s church was founded. Although Scouting is multi-faith, the church is an important hub for the English speaking community, and is the home of the Scout Hall where we meet each week. It was thus a pleasure to run our meeting at the same time as the service, and afterwards to join in the fun and games of the celebrations afterwards.    more ...

Match Reports 2015

CCC vs Nomads

Posted by: webmaster on Thursday September 24, 2015 (13:11:09)
CCC vs Nomads - 29 August 2015

The mercury was already pushing past 30 by the time the Chantilly players arrived at the Apremont ground on Saturday 29th August for their annual fixture against the Nomads from England. After a fair amount of time being lost with train hiccups and communication issues, the Nomads finally arrived at the ground ready to play.

The original plan to play 35 overs starting at 13:30, soon became 30 overs starting at 14:30 and the Nomads put themselves into bat first. When asked why they chose to bat first, their reply was: "because if you bat first the game will only last an hour." The man who made this comment is hopefully now feeling a little broken inside......

Captain Robin Richardson, opened up at the polo field end, with vice-captain Regan coming in from the other polo field end. Both started well (except for Regan's first ball that was spanked for 4) and the first 6 overs only went for 20 odd, although no wickets fell.

The first bowling change brought on Patrick Clarke, which quickly proved to be a wise decision; he took out the middle stump of one Nomadic opener with a beautifully delivered ball. Saravanan, a star with the ball in his previous match, soon came on as the next change, although he only lasted two overs due to exhaustion from the heat.    more ...

Chantilly Scouts

Posted by: ChantillyScouts on Sunday September 13, 2015 (15:44:33)
Chantilly Scout Group kicked off the new term in style yesterday at their “Accrobranche Open Day”.

Around 30 children, young adults, leaders and parents took to the trees, with another dozen so on the ground, organising, registering, or simply enjoying watching their children have fun in the trees over a coffee.

The afternoon was a great example of the rule number 1 of Chantilly Scouts “We don’t let the threat of rain stop us!”. Very Happy

In fact we were very lucky because the downpour of the morning stopped at about 2pm, and started up again at 5.30, just as we were all gathering for cake under the tent! The poor weather meant that we had the place almost totally to ourselves, there was little queuing and everybody could swing around to their hearts content.

It was great to see a lot of new faces who have not been before, and equally great to see some returning faces, of the older ‘explorer section’ who came back to ‘Hang out’ with their friends. It was also the first meeting for some new leaders - who bring new energy to the group.

This year, we intend to run monthly meetings, with the next one based around the 150 year celebrations of Chantilly church on the 3rd October.

If you are interested in joining us, please mail,
