Two night tour to Southampton an overwhelming success
After late cry offs, just 19 intrepid heros, and 1 heroine, set out to represent our great club in the depths of Hampshire. I am pleased to report all returned safely to Cheshire, all be it, slightly worse for wear.
The tour arrived at the Lyndhurst Park Hotel, which rather like most of the tourist, had been in its prime in the 1970s. The club captain (Chris Fleet) spent the first 2 hours in prolonged negotiation with Lady Rossett (Mrs Fleet) pleading with her not to move hotels. He final won her round when he explained old toenail clippings in the "freshly cleaned" were a local delicacy. He struggled to find a suitable excuse for the large amount if body hair that was left in their bathroom, and the fact the yellow vinyl floor around the toilet was Hampshires lucky colour.
The first game on Wednesday evening took place at Hyde CC, which was somewhat different to the Hyde CC in Cheshire, which we are used to playing at. The ground was set in a clearing, in the middle of the new Forrest and the 3 donkeys and 2 ponies had to be removed from the outfield before play could start. It will be sometime before the stench of Donkey manure will be removed from Treeny's wicket keeping kit. The game was closely fought, but in the pouring rain, Hyde were narrow winners. I would like at this point to say what a great job Jeremy Jordan (Chairman of Directors) did at captaining the side, but unfortunately I can't!
After match refreshments took place in the local pub where it was heard the local Landlady telling Jeff Fleet it would take 48 hours to get a taxi to get him from the remote wilderness.
The second morning suffered an early set back, when oz pro Josh came down to breakfast and promptly fell asleep. He described his evening sharing a room with Don, as the worst night of his life. As we all know, Dons snoring is legendary!!!
After a long lunch, our heroes played Lymington and Jeffrey played for the first time in 17 years, after 6 pints of lager. It is such a pity that we could not have videoed Joshes first quick bouncer, which nearly did took out the batsman and wicket keeper Jeffrey in one go!!! Josh, having never played with so many old men on one cricket field, realised the reputation of the club was on him, and proceeded to take 3 wickets, 6 catches and score 35 runs. Path, who last played for Chester in 1985, scored a fine 50, and Charlie Fleet scored 25*, earning himself a cap from the opposition. Once again, the highlight of the game was the opening partnership between Jeff and Seamus, with Seamus falling first.
After match highlights included stories of Ticeys love life, and Taffys rendition of the famous Cuckoo song.
The tour was undoubtedly a huge success, but that was only because of the superb hospitality of Christian and his family. No stone was left unturned, and they provided us with 2 great games and abundant hospitality. They are lovely people.
