|We're in the process of creating a new website
for the club that should allow content to a bit more dynamic and
embrace the world of tablets and mobiles. It's still a "work in
progress" so treat with caution, but we'd welcome and comments and
feedback that you have. The majority of the existing content will
be migrated to the new site, but in the meantime minimal updates to
this site will continue.
Nets are fully underway, so now's the time to dust off the whites and get loose - there's a choice of venues and times and the keen(er) young(er) ones out there can even try the challenge of back-to-back sessions on Sunday and Monday. Note that the sessions on 17th and 24th of February have had to be cancelled due to renovation work.
Next season we'll also be moving to Snitterfield to play our home games after our years at Leek Wootton - further details on the Club Info page.
The PreTour to Stroud passed off peacefully and the in-depth report from the intrepid winos journos can be found here. Tour deposits are now due, so please get you money to the Tourmeister as soon as possible..
At Barford we are always looking for new players to reduce the team average age, hopefully, to below 140. At weekends, we play only friendly games against similar local teams and several league Sunday 2nd XI teams. In the meantime you are most welcome to take a look around this site and if you want to attend nets or come along to any game or social event then please feel free to get in touch with a committee member or e-mail us directly.
Anyone seeking guidance on the club ethos could do far worse than read Marcus Berkmann's hilarious take on village cricket in "Rain Men" and the follow-up "Zimmer Men", which are uncannily close to real life. If you enjoy the books, you'll love playing for Barford...
