Welcome to the TPCC website.

 

The 2017 cricket season kicked off when Turville completed a brilliant tour of Croatia in late April, garnering 2 wins from 2 outings, and many new friends with handy Eastern European underworld connections (mere speculation on my part of course).

Back on home turf, we are now half way through a packed fixture card containing 28 matches. There are still plenty of opportunities to revive those sepia tinted memories of when you caressed that outswinger off the outside edge through second slip to the boundary. Sign up now with nominated Match Managers.

See you soon at Turville Heath.

Results and reports for all recent years can be found within, together with season statistics. If you have any questions, or suggestions for the website, feel free to email me at timwade25@gmail.com.

Captain’s Report Season 2016

Another summer has raced past and 2016 is already in the book, and for me, the story this season is one of less games, less rain, more wins and more players which all combined for a remarkably successful and, as always, extremely enjoyable summer.

Less games…

Just the 28 scheduled this year, starting with a “pre-season’ tour to the village cricketing paradise (?) that is Ibiza where we recorded our first tour victory for a while over the resident ex-pats. I’m sure everyone has a different (playing) highlight from the weekend and it was another huge success, but I think it should be noted that stadium seating and an astro wicket did appear to bring the best out of us!

Less rain…

Just the three games lost to weather, one cancelled by the opposition and one by us, all of which I believe are the lowest for a while which is great to see.

More wins…

16 wins out of a completed 23 games is a great return and definitely a total we should be proud of, it’s the most since I’ve been writing these reports and included really good wins over valley rivals Stonor, a battling win in the always enjoyable match against the Flycatchers and an unbeaten August. One draw – we’re still not the best at blocking out the final overs and six losses, a few of which are best left undescribed.

And more players…

Nine new faces this summer in a total of 42 batsmen and 24 bowlers, all of which are higher than last year and include an increasing number of contributions from the younger players in the club. Performance wise, the bowlers really led the way and no more so Nick with his 31 wickets including season best figures of 5/26 against Greys Green to claim the bowling trophy. Neil was his usual self, out foxing many a flustered batsman on his way to 26 whilst Tom, James and Jon all joined in with 13 wickets apiece. From a batting perspective, James topped the table with 592 runs, including two centuries, whilst Charlie again led the averages. There was also a fine hundred from Tim and first TPCC fifties for Adrian, Raif and Dave. Adrian’s knock also earning him the “Match Winning Contribution” trophy which is all the more deserving as it came against valley rivals Stonor!

Finally

For me personally, it’s been another summer of extremely enjoyable cricket at Turville which as always is down to the atmosphere and characters at the club – a huge thank you to everyone who makes a weekend of cricket such fun.
