'Chasing Balloons' by Mark Floyer...£10

Child of India, Oxford scholar, schoolmaster, published poet and father of four. Mark Floyer has lived a full life, but somehow his story always returns to cricket. His delightful honest memoir encapsulates beautifully the extraordinary grip this strange game has on so many of us.

O'60's 1st & 2nd XI's WIN comfortably at Birlingham & Taunton Deane

Runs allround for Devon batters, posting 246 for 9, Worcestershire settling for one batting point at 127 for 8. Devon raced to 50 in 7 overs, as Sheps (35) battered the opening bowlers for 7 boundaries, Clarke (40) carried it on with A.Rose (21) Matthews (39) Stanton (57 n.o.) and Hart (29). Worcestershire it seemed, had no intention to chase at 52 for 4 off half their overs, and the game slowly petered out with WORCS 119 runs short. Pick of the Bowling Fran Pyle 3 for 34 (could have been 5) Neil Price 2 for 15 and one apiece for Stanton, Amery & Floyer...MOM Tom Stanton...Wales at home next Tuesday.
