Coming Second to the Bishop’s Cannings

This was an inaugural match for the Queries for which both teams were 'oversubscribed' demonstrating how keen people are to play in these exceptional times. Queries won the toss and inserted their hosts, making a very promising start as skipper Rupert Bagnall bowled one opener in the 3rd over, and

A Wet End to a Promising Match

Playing the Gunners at Larkhill can often seem a daunting challenge to new or younger Queries.

TWO MATCHES PLAYED – AND TWO WINS !
