Fatally Cricket

Rt Hon Sir Alan Haselhurst MP

‘It was a harsh intrusion into the peaceful setting of a village cricket match. In the countryside gunshots are not unusual. Farmers are not averse to potting rabbits or scaring birds off their crops. In those circumstances more than one shot would be expected. It might have been a car backfiring. It was the fact that some people thought they had a heard a scream that tended to rule out these explanations.’

Fatally Cricket portrays the world of village cricket at its most murderous.

Eventually Cricket

Rt Hon Sir Alan Haselhurst MP

The Outcasts CC is England’s most infamous wandering cricket club. Somehow its pursuits of the noble ideals of cricket seem always to be accompanied by a good deal of beer, sex, and curry – not necessarily in that order – plus the attention of the emergency services.  Eventually Cricket recounts the thoroughly unedifying tale of two early season fixtures and confirms — not that there could ever have been any doubt — that a club of this sort should never be let near school cricket.

Illustrated with cartoons by Hoby.

Incidentally Cricket

Rt Hon Sir Alan Haselhurst MP

The Outcasts CC is England’s most infamous wandering cricket club. Somehow its pursuits of the noble ideals of cricket seem always to be accompanied by a good deal of beer, sex, and curry – not necessarily in that order – plus the attention of the emergency services.  Occasionally Cricket recounts the sorry tale of the annual fixture with Doredell CC.

Unusually Cricket

Rt Hon Sir Alan Haselhurst MP

One would think that only a club with at least twenty-two players would arrange to play simultaneous fixtures. But with the Outcasts CC – England’s most notorious wandering club – it is different, of course. Still, the challenge provided by a clash of fixtures should at least allow the club to put behind it the unfortunate memories of their first ever fixture in France. Or perhaps not.
