Sometimes people say that the journey matters more than the destination.  Today (11-August) 11 players from Stockholm CC left Stockholm to play a game in Vadsbro.  And the journey was long.  The country side around Södermansland is fantastic,  with lakes and farms surrounded by forests, but we were trying to get to a game not admmire nature.  Though it was noted that the road signs for Vadsbro are far and few between.  At the scheduled start time Stockholm CC had 5 players there (obviously people with GPRS),  by 12:15 another 3 had arrived. So we decided to start play in the hope the remaining people would show up. 

With the wicket looking green and the outfield very lush after winning the toss we decided to field.  Due to technical difficulties,  there was only limited scoring made during the game so the match record is more an oral history than a written one.  Almost all the bowlers took a wicket or two,  there were some fantastic run outs,  and in the end Vadsbro set a target of 56 runs for us to chase. This was in part due to some good bowling, in part given an uneven wicket, but perhaps mainly it being because many people were trying to play cricket for their first time.  Also, by the end of the innings we had our full team. 

Starting the chase, the father and son pairing  of Naveed and Hamzah set a solid platform with an opening partnership of 33. And all the batters contributed during the innings. Vadsbro’s bowling, was perhaps notable for Andrews wicket maiden in the 7th over and Grahams miserly bowling.  Naveed top scored for us with 18.   The result being that we are looking forward to next years match. Oh, Stockholm CC won, but that was perhaps a minor consideration in a fun social day.


Stockholm CC Old Boys were; Naveed, Hamzah, Stephen, Manu, Howard, Jeff, Karl, Louise, Chris, Ray and Wayne.
