  1. Was once having a bit of banter with one of Walkden’s batsman. He said, ‘If you don’t shut up I will go and get my gun from the car and shoot you in the head.’

    He got even more annoyed when I told him I’d seen him cycling onto the ground before we started.

    Couldn’t agree more. Played at Kearsley on Saturday, we had at least 3, if not 4, really bad LBW decisions go against us.

    Not only the standard, but the number of umpires seem to be reducing every year at an alarming rate 

    Having a tail Luis Reece couldn’t trust was Westhoughtons only problem on Saturday. Nowt to do with bad umpires.

    Yip Daisy is a mess, had a long chat regarding the situation,

    we’ve got Faisal Iqbal as pro this year and we were talking about Daisy at weekend because his uncle is Javed Mianded who pro’d there in the 70’s. 

    Its a shame the club I grew up and loved and still do is in the state it’s in. 

    Hoping everyone has a good season in the Bolton league.

    Hope Faisal has a good season, he’s a decent bloke. Don’t expect much from him though. More selfies than runs. 

  4. Tried to back him to be the division leading run scorer yesterday with Sky’s requestabet. They’ve still not given me a price. He’s got a point to prove, playing a division down and won’t get an ashes call up regardless of how many he scores. 

    I hope he scores a boatload. Nice lad and his ability and dedication will come through.

    For every Portsmouth there’s a Boston United. 

    For every Leicester there’s a Tranmere or Stockport.

    why the fuck people seem to think admin or insolvency is some magical land where all our troubles will be gone is beyond me.

    Its like wanting to get done for drink driving to stop you drink driving. 

     

    Or drinking

    was sat next to him at newcastle , the week before he died , great bloke,bwfc legend

    Remember seeing him at Newcastle. Must’ve taken him ages to get up all them steps with his dodgy hip. 

    Great bloke, loved BWFC

  7. Agree with most of that, but allowing teams to merge offers cricket to kids that wouldn’t normally get it. 

    Kearsley and Farnworth have merged the u13s and U11s. This isn’t to win more games or because both clubs are lazy. Both clubs could fill an u13s side but both would be asking kids to make the numbers up and asking a kid that’s not upto it has all sorts of issues. 

    Both clubs are playing U15s and u18s and Kearsley u9s. That’s a lot of cricket to get in, the number of kids that play means quite a bit of cross age group which some can deal with but some could get hurt. I notice Bradshaw and Horwich aren’t competing at u18s. 

  8. Moaning old cunt 2 rows behind and lad about 18 that thinks he’s a comedian in ESL. Used to shout Wilson in a Tom Hanks Castaway style every time Lawrie Wilson was in earshot. Wilson actually used to smile and think ffs not again. He’s never shouted it to Mark Wilson yet. 

  9. Times are changing. There’s more activities than ever before for cricket clubs to compete against. Summer football being a big one for us. 

    Think how many miles are between Clifton, Kearsley, Farnworth, Farnworth Social Circle and Walkden and how many schools play cricket in that area. Last year we had a good group of under 7s and 8 year olds and they have football training on a Monday night all summer. Can’t compete with football, it’s that simple.
