Could this be the demise of 'Cricket Teas'...really ?

"Cricket without teas is like jam without the cream, fish without the chips and Ant without Dec.

But the threat to what is a quintessential way of English life is looming large.

Match Report: Kilmington CC 2nd XI v DCSCC 60+ XI

Devon Seniors 60+ batted first against a mixed age and club Kilmington side, Andy Rose and new boy Rob Jack got us off to 63 run opening partnership followed by a solid contribution from fellow new boy Graham Jones. Sheps then proceeded to flay the attack to all parts for a quick 53* (ret'd) and a finishing total of 179-4.

Devon took early wickets in the Kilmington reply (Jeary 8-2-22-3) but the rather younger looking no 3 decided he liked the look of the Devon attack and scored a hard hitting 46 very quickly, followed by solid contributions from the Cook brothers to see the home side to victory 180-4 with 6 overs to go. K.Bell also amongst the wickets for Devon 8-0-32-1 and Brown bowling tight 8-0-36-0.

A very good workout for everyone and played in a competitive and friendly spirit.

Let the Love of the Game Take You Places

THE NEWS GETS BETTER (view Golden Oldies website)

The encouraging news for Golden Oldies Cricketers is that Air NZ has announced that direct flights to the Sunshine Coast are recommencing in July. A sure sign that travel is opening up again. Hopefully other airlines will be publishing their new schedules soon.

Yes, the chance is at hand to get back together again, see old friends, make new ones and play our favourite sport in a stunning destination and at great local cricket clubs.

As the old Golden Oldies motto goes - "Let The Love of the Game Take You places"

Our attitude is still vigilant to any potential risk for our community. We are continually monitoring the situation and have taken the step of extending our "Book With Confidence Commitment" to June 30th, 2022 (see below).

For teams in the Southern Hemisphere this will be nice way to get the cricket season underway again and for our friends in the northern hemisphere, what a brilliant way to avoid some winter weather.
