Welcome to the TPCC website.

Season 2018 was formally launched in glorious May Bank Holiday sunshine with a brilliant charity day involving no less than four cricket related Guinness Book of records achievements.

A full programme of 30 fixtures plus a Tour to Minorca is planned for this season. Get involved!

The 2017 cricket season is elegantly summarised below by our skipper, Sam Beardall.

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 2017

No better place to start a season summary than at the beginning and the tour to Croatia was a great beginning. Sunny afternoons playing against as enthusiastic an opposition as we’re ever likely to see and shouts of ‘Bravisimo’ before, after and often during each and every ball. I think it’s fair to say we all had a great time and it set us up for the season ahead perfectly.

Back in the Chilterns, 45 players turned out for Turville this summer which across just 17 completed games highlights what a great setup we enjoy. Unfortunately though, we were forced to cancel two games with a further six where the opposition weren’t able to raise a side and three lost to the weather.

A strong win against valley rivals Stonor ensures we retain the local silverware whilst the win away at Ipsden was a particular highlight – it’s not often you see direct hits from the square leg boundary in village cricket, but two in one game and both by Pete left the opposition stunned and turned the game decisively in our favour. A worthy winner of the new ‘Champagne Moment’ trophy!

From a bowling perspective, Nick claimed both ‘Best Performance’ with 5 for 53 and also the new ‘Most Wickets’ cup with his 23 for the season, just beating out the ageless Runks. Although there was quite a drop off in total wickets after these two, 25 other players did take at least one wicket though.

Batting wise, Charlie Beardall again led the averages at 72 whilst I made the highest score of 128 against Ibstone and also claimed our third new trophy: ‘Most Runs’ with 498 for the season. The summer though really had two main batting highlights, Colin’s 115 not out against Odney, described by one witness as ‘classy and elegant’, and Tom’s first fifty, in Vis, described by one onlooker as ‘Kao grizli drzi metlu’.

The last of the trophies went to James, claiming the ‘Match Winning Perfrmance’ cup for 32 runs and 3 for 14 in our win against Henley. One of many all round performances this summer and we really are lucky to have several players that can win games with either bat or ball.

And that’s it for 2017! For me it’s been another summer of enjoyable cricket games with a fun and friendly atmosphere at each. A huge thank you to everyone and all those involved in such a great village club and I look forwards to the 2018 season.
