……. and the Dog ate the Chairman’s egg sandwich!

Bedouins v Kinlet at Kinlet August 18th 2019 – Bedouins lost by 13 runs We should have known what to expect.

England swings

Bedouins v Fossils at Birlingham July 14th, 2019 – Bedouins won by 111 runs “Engerland swings like a pendulum do; Bobbies on bicycles two by two” – shows how long ago those were the words of a current pop song (a major prize for anyone who can name the perpetrator of this 1960s hit, without […]
