It’s not about the winning...

The adventures of a village cricket team. Some beer is drunk, scrapes are got into, anecdotes are gathered, and all for our listening pleasure! Give it a listen!

Good job guys!

I love how much of a laugh these guys have (at each other and themselves). Nothing serious, and some quality spoof ads. Straight-Bat-Batting-App-iPad-Bat-Grasp! 😂

Not (old) ropey at all!

Amusing and not too many in jokes. Just as professional and sometimes more interesting than Tailenders...
