v The Frogs CC at Devizes, 27th August



Tom Grant gets right down over one ball of the 8 he faced: on the right David Haywood [43*] gets one away behind point.



Gurung needed to control his usual style of limited overs play: he
faced 48 balls for 14 runs. Meanwhile the umpire missed this no ball

when Charlie Ayers was batting!


Young guest – and good-looking cricketer – Charlie Ayers played

sensibly and carefully facing 50 balls before he was caught behind for 17.


v Winterbourne CC, 26th August




Richard Brewer, Peter and Diane Salisbury came to watch.  James Macey, whom we haven’t seen all season, came in at number 6

and enjoyed a 6th wicket stand with Simon Campbell of 159 of which James scored 22.



with Simon Campbell who carried his bat for 116 including 8 sixes.
After 25 overs Queries were 104 for 5: after 35 overs they were 204 for

and after 40 overs 267 for 7.



James Farley opened the bowling for the Queries and took 3 for 44 in 8
overs. On the right, Ted Glanvill took 1 for 36 from 5 overs

and then fielded very well.



Harvey skippered the Winterbourne side and was one of James Farley’s
victims having scored 36. On the right a general view of the closing

stages of the game which the Queries won by 84 runs


v Potterne CC, 23rd August



Brian Thompson is keeping with Jordan Welsby at point and Richard Moore at slip: on the right, new candidate Jordan Welsby

is a useful left arm opening bowler.



Richard Thompson took time out from house moving to play!  Tom Shaw bowled a couple of overs.



Andy Palmer bowled 8 overs and took 4 for 21 whilst on the right new candidate Manny Gurung took one wicket.



Jeff Haywood bowled a couple of overs to grab one wicket. On the right Tom Shaw top scored with 89 and in doing so,

scored his 1000th run for the Queries since he joined 5 years ago – 212 in 2008, 470 in 2009, 201 in 2010, just 4 in 2011

and 108 so far this season.


v Hinton Charterhouse CC, 22nd August



Geoff Ramsey bowled 10 overs and took 1 for 28:  Jon Moore scored 17 before getting trapped lbw



Charlie Palmer opened the innings : bowler of the match Paul Roberts bowled 18.5 overs,

including 4 maidens, and took 6 for 60.



Andy Palmer showed us that he still has the style and the skill: on the right Brian Thompson took 2 important catches



Paul Roberts congratulates Brain T for taking a fine catch: Tom Palmer,
David Haywood, centurion and skipper Joe Dorgan look on . On the right,
Scyld Berry is surrounded as the Queries try to get the 10th wicket.


The scene in the penultimate over: Tom Haywood is bowling; Liam Taylor and Scyld Berry are batting.  It was Liam who

eventually succumbed and popped up a catch.


v Farley CC, 12th August



Jamie Harvey and James Melhorn both played for Farley, and took advantage of the poor Query bowling.



Ted Glanvill bowled 5 overs for 37 runs, and Will Langton bowled 8 overs for 21.



Moore, skippering the side, even turned his arm over, with 3 overs for
11. The opening bowler for Farley was Luke Gibson, brother of Query Dan,

and he took 2 for 21 from 6 overs.





Will Langton drove three fours in three balls – but the 4th ball had his name on it!


Tim Law tried to force the pace at the end, scoring 15, but was stumped

going for the big one.


v The Incogniti CC at Devizes, 6th Aug



David Haywood came in at 3 and scored 27:  meanwhile Tom Andrew was building an innings carefully and relatively risk-free.



Farley in characteristically correct pose: he had scored 6 when he was
out to a very good catch at gulley.  On the right Barney Rocke

on his first ‘proper’ run out for the Queries. The radar was not always
on but he did bowl some quite quick balls and we hope to see lots more

of his bowling before the season is over.



Langton scored 16 with the bat and bowled 4 overs for 31 runs:
John Bramwell stood in for brother Jack, and bowled 8 overs

taking 1 for 48 – and what an important ‘one’ it was as he clean bowled their opening big hitter.



Andrew kept wicket very tidily, and chats away here with Simon
Campbell; on the right he is about to drive another ball to the boundary

on his way to a super unbeaten 100.


v Avebury CC, 5th August



was Barney Rocke’s first match for the Queries and the conditions were
not really in his favour: on the right Robert Leachman

opened the bowling with Barney,  and between them they took 5 wickets.



William Leachman followed his dad bowling up the hill and took a
couple of wickets, hoping that someone in the slip cordon – Brian

Simon Bedford and David Haywood with about 200 years between them – might take a catch!



This was something of a family day – the brothers Harry and James Farley [above]: and the Thompson and Leachman

fathers and sons.


Will Leachman demonstrating how much effort goes into leg spin!


v Glamorgan Nomads at Corsham CC, 1st Aug



Dorgan skippered the Queries and was the most successful bowler, taking
5 for 65: on the right the team gets together after one of Joe’s



Toby Davies opened our innings and enjoyed a second wicket stand with Neil Clark of 161. Toby scored 79 and Neil 91.



Bramwell came in at 6 and scored a very useful 23 in the last 8 overs:
on the right Charlie Palmer scored a great 32 to get the Queries

right up to the finishing line and a victory.


v Gloucester Gipsies, 30th July



occasions call for desperate measures, and Queries filled up the slip
cordon: on the right George Sandbach, Brian Thompson

and Simon Campbell.




Harry Waddington was the successful Query bowler, taking 4 wickets: on the right Simon Slabbert scored 21.



George Sandbach is a new candidate and an all-rounder. He bowled 5 overs for 23 runs and top-scored with 43

A beautiful view across the ground at Escrick



Nick Schofield at full tilt on the left, whilst Jeremy on the right took a wicket with the first ball of the match.



Ray van Schoor turning hs arm over, and Ru Bunday on the right puffs out his cheeks for the effort ball !



Hodder stood up to all the bowlers, including the quicks and never wore
a helmet. On the right, new comer David Bromley steers one

down to long leg.



The Bunday pair march out to the field! meanwhile Nick Schofield wonders why the square leg umpire has a camera!


Scorers Paul and Jeremy get some refreshments.

Haywood. On the right a huddle at the fall of a wicket: from l to r –
Tom Grant

skipper Ray van Schoor, Geoff Schofield, David Bromley, David Haywood, Jeremy Wilkins, Mark Fenn and Nick Schofield.



Tom Grant has a chat to Mark Fenn whilst the batting style of Harry Farley is unmistakable.



The Schofield father and son pair wait to bat whilst Mark Fenn scored 21 before he was run out.



Hopefully Nick Schofield and David Bromley will both join the Club. They are both very competent all-rounders and impressed

everyone on the tour.


v Urchfont CC, 15th July



Ellis opened the bowling [left] and took 1 for 30 from 8 overs. he was
followed at the ‘top end’ by candidate James Farley [right] who

bowled 5 overs for 26 runs.



James Melhorn took 1 for 16 from his 4 overs: on the right the players
gather for drinks. James Hall [centre with blue mug] bowled 7 overs

including 2 maidens and was the pick of the bowlers taking 2 for 22.



Harry Farley[left] opened the Queries innings with David Haywood. David was caught for 23 after an opening partnership

of 74, and James Roué [right] came to the crease only to depart 10 minutes later for 6.



Whilst Harry Farley was amassing his runs, others had little to do!
Will Langton relaxed with his phone, and skipper Simon Campbell

was unconcerned but pleased with the batting progress.


The hero of the innings!  Harry Farley, 103 not out


v Hampshire Hogs, 1st July



The contrasting styles of the 2 keepers used: Tom Weaver on the left and BJ Cole on the right.



The ring on the off is Dan Ellis, James Melhorn, Tom Weaver and Tom Shaw: the cordon is David Haywood, Olly Sloane

Dan Ellis and BJ.



A pensive Kieren Chivers and an alert Will Thomas. Kieren bowled 5 overs for 15 runs, taking 1 wicket.


The pick of the bowlers: Olly Sloane – 18 overs, 4 maidens, 54 runs and 5 wickets/


v Royal Artillery CC, 28th June



On the left, a general view of the ground: the match was played in
bright sunshine all day.  On the right, Ru Bunday took 1 for 61
from 9.



Tom Grant kept wicket allowing only 6 byes to get past him.  On the right James Hopton  took 1 for 56 from 7 overs.



David Haywood and Kieren Chivers paying close attention to the bowler’s feet!  Meanwhile Ru Bunday gets a little

impatient waiting for the ball to reach him.



James Hopton defended well with Simon Campbell to get the draw. At the top of the order Tom Grant was in fine form scoring 65

before he was unlucky to get a ball which barely lifted off the deck to trap him lbw.


v Dauntsey’s School, 26th June




the left, Tim Mynott guested today. He bowled 9 overs for 25 runs.
The slip cordon o the right has Tom Shaw with the gloves,

and scored 53 before he was bowled by Kit Patrick. In this photo, Laurence Hanniford is bowling.



On the left, Joe Wookey anchored the Queries innings, batting at one and carrying his bat for an excellent 89.  On the

right is the young man that had to try to deal with Joe – Ed Duckworth, the School skipper scored 25 runs with the bat,

bowled 9 overs,  fielded brilliantly and never stopped trying and encouraging his players to keep trying.



v Chilmark CC, 17th June.




Harry Farley on the left and Jack Bramwell on the right.




The pair again, with Harry beginning to get into his stride. Jack’s shot on the right ended up by being a 6 over mid wicket !




Jack hits a good ball square of the wicket on the off-side, whilst
Harry leaves a rising ball well alone and surprises the keeper.




David Glanvill hit an energetic and quick 23 and then when we came out
to field, Brian Thompson got us away quickly with a fine leg-side

stumping off the bowling of Rupert Bunday.




A wicket has fallen and the players gather round – Jack Bramwell, Ru Bunday with his back to camera, Harry Farley, Jake Bunday,

Brian Thompson and Simon Campbell.  On the right, Richard Green in action.



Rupert Bagnall opened the bowling, and his first three overs were
maidens.  Jake Bunday on the right  bowled 6 overs and took 1
for 29.

the first three matches of the season being cancelled, we pick up the
photographic trail at the fourth match, versus Somerset Stragglers,
played at Dauntsey’s School .



v Somerset Stragglers, 20th May.





James Sayer was somewhat aggrieved to be given out lbw  with this ball!

The photographer was in his father’s car watching the match, and snapped ‘le moment critique’

with impeccable timing. James emailed the photo to the umpire requesting a Decision Review !!

Just for the record, Queries umpire Barry Aitken is standing at square leg and the man fielding

there is 6ft 8 inches tall !


v Stragglers of Asia at Tidworth

rapid-fire 121 from 61 balls and in 87 minutes. He hit three 6s and

nineteen 4s.  On the right, the players gather at the fall of a Straggler wicket.


Guest Straggler Simon Campbell lofts one on his way to an unbeaten 104.
