By Mark Bird | June 12, 2020

Hi everybody! I’m not sure that my first update for youth cricket as the youth coordinator was supposed to be like this. I was supposed to be reporting on how the sun was shining, how the All Stars were progressing at Compton Park and how our newly formed U9s team was getting on in training […]

U11 vs. Old Wellingburians 17th July 2017

By Mark Bird | July 18, 2017

With most of the U11s having played in the tied U13 game at Brixworth on Monday night, the crowd [well, the coaches anyway] were hoping for a slightly less exciting finish from the visit of Old Wellingburians to a cloudy Compton Park for the last home match of the season.

OW’s U13s arrived at Cogenhoe having only played once this season due to bad weather or unavailability.

U11 vs. Saints – 2nd July 2017

By Mark Bird | July 4, 2017

Saints U11s were the visitors to the Compton International Arena on Sunday. A good crowd was in as Saints won the toss and elected to bowl first. I’m not going to dwell too much on today’s performance as there were some good bits, some developmental bits and plenty of indifferent bits across the board. Saints […]
