No I was not there on Tuesday, not in the best of health these days, too much 'galavanting' about leaves me knackered for a while afterwards, so little & often for me. This weekend it is T.W. & a couple of journeys up & down the Spa Valley Railway on Sunday & a day of cricket (weather permitting) on Monday. Then a weekend off followed by 2 Sunday/Mondays of cricket at Canterbury & The Oval.
Pity about today's events, could have used a drop or two of rain , but hey-ho onward we go.
I'm glad it didn't rain on the children on Tuesday & that they enjoyed it & hopefully some new supporters/players were inspired to enjoy the game. Takes me back to another schools day, strangely enough Somerset were also the visitors, in a 2016 Royal London match. The heavens opened that day just before play was due to start, it was a biblical downpour, & shelter was found for the children wherever available. The rain passed, the ground was made ready & a reduced game was played. In the meantime the children made the best of it with impromptu games everywhere. I remember a lot of noise & plenty of fun being had, trust it was the same this week.
