End of year report - 2008

Posted by: webmaster on Saturday October 11, 2008 (01:33:09)
As I sit here in my thermal vest, coughing onto the screen, it’s fairly clear that the end of season is here – and quicker than I had been planning. And although we moaned about it occasionally, the weather was kind: no game was called off, and I can’t remember a Friday evening being cancelled either.
So was it a successful year?
You might be disappointed to hear that we had 8 games, with 3 wins and 5 losses, and then be surprised to hear that it ranks as the most successful year ever for the club. But let’s not get hung up on statistics; the games were jolly good fun and if you’ll permit me some poetic licence…    more ...

CCC vs Standard at Meudon - 21st September 2008

Posted by: webmaster on Monday September 29, 2008 (21:53:57)
A beautiful setting
The sun shone brightly on the last day of the 2008 season when we travelled to Paris to play Standard. We had gathered at McDonalds in Senlis and thankfully avoided having a pre-match meal there, before setting off in convoy to Paris. Doris – Nick Shepherd’s GPS - was tour leader for the day, and Denzil had programmed his SatNav as a backup. Nick Jones, something of an expert in all things automotive, warned that in spite of the two cars having the same german father, Audi and VW were renowned for their genetic conflicts, and there would almost certainly be a clash of minds on the journey. Nick was right. A couple of kilometres short of our destination, Doris took us left. Nick Jones followed in his obedient italian Alfa, as Denzil sped straight on up the hill and out of sight. Adrian, one of the VW passengers, soon got into full sledging mode, calling to mock Doris, then calling back a few minutes later to ask for directions to the ground ! Denzil ignored the SatNav, and was guided through the last few twists and turns via a mixture of mobile phone instructions and smoke signals. When the smoke lifted, it was soon clear to everyone that the journey had been well worth the effort – Standard really is a splendid place.    more ...

CCC vs Glasgow Accies CC - 14th September 2008

Posted by: webmaster on Thursday September 18, 2008 (14:35:20)
The two teams share a beer
The pedigree of our vistors was unknown to most of us, but Adrian our webmaster had done his research and had delved into the Accies CC web-site to uncover some rather impressive statistics. Their players and umpire took the slow train from Paris and Adrian and I welcomed them at Chantilly station with the fleet of CCC courtesy cars (Karen in a Multipla). Adrian quickly began to put faces to names he had seen on the web site. These mostly youthful faces followed their braveheart kilted talisman, Dundas, and it felt like they were on a mission to re-live the Battle of Stirling Bridge and rescue some pride after 2 defeats to Standard on the previous Friday and Saturday. Recognising that some of their infantry were a little weary from the night before, we took the tourist route to the ground over the cobbles in front of the château hoping to shake their confidence, but no such luck.

Andy Dodson and Rob tossed and the Accies chose to bat first. Metronome Matt and the more and more precise Patrick Clarke opened the bowling and kept the runs down to below 4 an over at the fall of the first wicket, Dowers holing out to Nick Sansbury off Gillett with the score on 18. Andrew and Murray (were they to be followed in the order by Rafa and Nadal ?) set about the Stirling Bridge re-make in fine style, racking up the runs. In an attempt to stem the tartan tide, Rob switched Nick Jones to wicketkeeper and brought Homer into the attack. The Andrew and Murray partnership had reached 99 when the left-armers from Denzil prompted Murray to loop one to Kerkhoven, our Dutch Master – 127 for 2 after 19 overs. The kilted warrior, Dundas, had slipped into whites and then slipped up by presenting a catch to captain Oakley slain for nought off Charlie Hedley’s bowling.    more ...

CCC vs Lille CC - 31st August 2008

Posted by: webmaster on Monday September 15, 2008 (17:13:31)
One more day of ‘summer’ gave another opportunity for the ‘whites’ to be donned and for the cricketers to strutt their stuff! Storms were predicted to threaten the proceedings later in the day so the match got off to a prompt start. Lille opened their innings and made steady progress through the undoubted batting talent of D. Szumowski, otherwise known to his mates as ‘Ricky Ponting’. Lille lost two early wickets to the controlled and skilful opening attack of Gillette and Congreve but this early inroad into the batting line-up was soon blunted by an explosive batting partnership of Nesser and ‘Ponting’ (sorry, Szumowski!).

Captain Oakley turned to his ‘wisdom beyond their years’ bowlers, Shepherd and N.Clarke who brought guile and change of pace to their medium pacers. However, the batsmen quickly got into their stride and by the time of the mid-innings drinks interval they had amassed 66 for 2.    more ...

CCC vs Nomads - 23 August 2008

Posted by: webmaster on Monday August 25, 2008 (15:12:47)
Nomads
The well-travelled Nomads returned to Chantilly for the opening match of their August Bank Holiday tour of France. Having wined and dined at the Ferme de Conde and stayed overnight at the Hotel du Parc, their convoy made it out to Apremont on a fine and sunny Saturday afternoon. The only thing they forgot was to grab some chalk from the white cliffs of Dover on their way – In a vain attempt to disorientate their opening batsman, we were temporarily unable to provide chalk to mark their guard on the crease. A desperate dash into the village ensued, and the Elliotts came up trumps again, with Lucy returning with several sticks. Unperturbed by the numerous interruptions as the Chantilly captain, bowlers, and fielders all tried to solve the “Chalkgate” mystery, Lascelles and Newman opened slowly but surely.

The economical bowling of Gillette and Congreve, and the batsmen’s struggle to get their bearings, kept them to under 3 an over for the first eight overs. The run-rate began to pick up when an incredible display in the field was heralded by Newman’s dismissal, caught behind by Homer for 8. The middle order pushed on and took advantage of the first change pairing of Shepherd and Patrick Clarke with Hill and Lascelles in a 50 partnership, and the run rate up to 5 an over by the half-time drinks interval. It looked as if the refreshment was working to the advantage of the batsmen, as Hill reached 32 and Lascelles 51, before falling head-on into the Hedley trap. Accurate bowling by Charlie meant that father Simon picked up both high scorers with athletic catches at mid-on. Captain Clarke brought himself on to bowl and combined with Charlie to stem the runs. Gillette rejoined the attack for the final few overs. Pressure built on the tail enders who sought to force the scoring but further catches from the Clarke’s (two by Nick and one by Patrick) rounded off with well-taken chances by Charlie Hedley and Gillette meant that the Nomads had reached 153 for 8 (ALL CAUGHT !) at the close of their innings after 40 overs. Gillette had tidied up the loose ends to finish with impressive figures of 3 for 19, tight sessions from Patrick and Nick Clarke had slowed the run rate, but the real performance came from young Charlie Hedley whose line, length and control helped him to earn 4 wickets for just 21 runs.

Denzil proved that he is not just a talented wicket-keeper, likened to Mark Bosnich on cocaine, but also pretty handy with the butter knife. He roped in his wife, Amanda, his daughter, his brother and sister-in-law to serve up another in the series of marvellous teas – the highlight of which was the lemon sponge.    more ...

CCC vs Fingletoads - 8th August 2008

Posted by: webmaster on Friday August 15, 2008 (14:06:09)
On the eighth day of the eighth month of the eighth year of the third millennium, history was made at Chantilly Cricket Club.

We welcomed our first touring team from the southern hemisphere, the Fingletoads from New Zealand. This is a touring side of some renown in vintage cricketing terms and collecting them from the Dolce hotel, it was clear we would have a game on our hands. Larry Sewell, their party leader, explained that their current average was 58. Having enquired as to whether this was the number of runs per match of their opening partnership, or the number of overs between loss of wickets, he confirmed that it was actually the average age of the side they were fielding against us.

Recognising that this meant they were extremely experienced cricketers, we ferried half of the players to the pitch, and tried to send the other half off to get lost in the woods between the hotel and Apremont. Orienteering is clearly another skill the kiwis master and unfortunately for us they all made it to the ground in time. Roy, our regular umpire led the captains out and after the toss of a coin, the kiwis elected to bat.    more ...

CCC vs Standard - 29th June 2008

Posted by: webmaster on Monday June 30, 2008 (23:00:43)
Writing fast to keep up with the scoring!
We were delighted to welcome an experienced Standard side to Apremont on a warm but overcast Sunday afternoon. We were not so delighted to find that CCSB95 had also re-scheduled a league match on the ground for the same time. Thanks to a very accommodating position taken by the Standard skipper,Paul Goring, a true diplomatic solution was found to the satisfaction of all concerned. We agreed to shorten our match to a 20/20 format.

This was clearly our first mistake, since the run-hungry opening pair of Hellawell and Zaidi set about our bowlers from the off. Tris’s first delivery got clearance from Air Traffic Control at Roissy before dropping on the full to be despatched for four. A sign of things to come. In fact it took a perfect double act from the Hedley brothers to claim the first wicket, just one run short of an opening 50 partnership. Charlie prompted a square slash from the batsman which was taken superbly at shoulder height by his brother Nicky at cover point.

Nick Shepherd slowed down the run rate by blatantly body checking their star batsman, Hellawell and would have got a red card or sin-binned in any other sport. Thankfully, Roy Newman, our resident umpire, thought that the ice-hockey tactics brought a refreshing change to the humid afternoon.    more ...

CCC vs Thoiry - 22nd June 2008

Posted by: webmaster on Sunday June 29, 2008 (14:29:32)
Stormy weather was forecast for our local derby match against Thoiry (can you call it a derby if it’s the first time you’ve played them?). In the end, the outcome was a lot brighter for all, especially for CCC.

Chantilly won the toss and decided to bat – something that would have been laughably rash just a year ago, when we seriously doubted our ability to bat for more than an hour or so. How times change…    more ...
