The Queries Croak in front of The Frogs

It was a wonderful day and the Tidworth ground looked a picture. Frogs won the toss and decided to bat first and it was immediately clear that bowling was not the Queries strongest suit.  Extras mounted up - there were 26 in all - and the Frogs openers capitalised. Sam

A Successful and Sunny Day at Hinton Charterhouse

Andy Palmer had assembled a mixed XI of youth and experience: we had two father - son combos in the Campbells and the Hughes, we welcomed Hamish Fyfe back after an absence of a couple of years, we welcomed Scyld Berry and George Edwards making their début for the Queries,

The Rain Steals the Show at Tidworth

There were high hopes of a decent encounter with The Incogniti CC today at Tidworth. Although some rain was forecast just after lunch, there was little sign of it as Incogniti won the toss and decided to bat on what was pretty much a road!  Despite the best efforts of

Queries Take a Bit of a Beating at Farley

Everything started so well!  We lost the toss and were put in the field. 8 off Matt Haslett's first over was , well, just a bit of a loosener. Then a double wicket maiden for Richard Baxter in the second over sent everyone cockahoop.  Farley were 8 for 2 and

Queries too strong for The Rifles CC

The original plan was for a fixture against the Free Foresters, but when they were unable to confirm the fixture, Query Theo Bossom offered to put out a Rifles CC XI against the Queries, and well done and thank you to him for doing so. We played a 40 over

A 4 wkt win against the Clayesmore Cormorants

Apparently a rather slow over rate kept the Queries total down, nevertheless Jack Bramwell took every opportunity to pile on the runs and carried his bat for 87, including five 6s and five 4s. He opened with Harry Latham and their stand was 79 before Harry was run out for

Queries vs Dauntsey’s School 1st XI

The School bowled well and restricted the Queries top and early middle order batsmen such that there was only 112 runs on the board at lunch, after 37 overs - and 5 wickets down. A late flourish from skipper Joe Wookey [66] and Simon Campbell [25] helped to pull the

A 7 Wicket Victory over Urchfont CC

In this 25 over match, decent Query bowling contained the Urchfont top-order run-scoring ability such that after 10 overs they had managed only 35 runs, albeit for the loss of only one wicket, and after 20 overs 77/5. They finished with 115, 7 down, which was never likely to be

Queries lose to Devizes CC

The second T20 of the week was  against DCC, again with Tom Grant in charge, and plenty of Queries on both sides. Queries won the toss, batted first, and then lost Jack Bramwell to the first ball of the game caught by Tom Pike at slip.David Bromley took the game
