U13’s vs. ON’s B – 27/06/2016

By Mark Bird | June 28, 2016

With the unfounded optimism of England’s Euro 2016 match against Iceland setting the backdrop, the early start caused a few logistical problems and Cogenhoe offered to bat first to secure an early finish.  As it turned out, we wish we hadn’t bothered rushing to watch the football! Regular openers Sam Tipler and Alfie Wreford got […]

U13’s vs. Old Wellingburians – 20/06/2016

By Mark Bird | June 23, 2016

Monday night’s objective for the U13s was to try and demonstrate improvement in all three phases of the game and secure a win against similar opposition in Old Wellingburians/Indians.  The early start of 5.45pm to ensure the game would be finished before the England Euro16 game was added incentive.   Pre-match plans were thrown out […]

U11’s vs. Heyford – 19/06/2016

By Mark Bird | June 23, 2016

After Friday’s abandonment against Horton, the Cooks travelled to Nether Heyford knowing the weather would not be a factor as it was warm and sunny.   Heyford won the toss and asked us to bat, so a chance to set a score was imposed on the team for the first time in a few weeks.  […]

U11’s vs. Horton House – 17/06/2016

By Mark Bird | June 23, 2016

Horton House U11s were the visitors to Compton Park on Friday night for a rearranged fixture due to the car boot [literally one car boot!] sale on Sunday. For the fifth straight game, skipper Jake won the toss and Horton were batting.  The prospect of a full game was in the balance as the clouds […]

U13’s Test Their Mettle

By Mark Bird | June 16, 2016

Another stern test of the U13’s mettle was faced on Monday night, namely finding eleven shirts that fitted the boys courtesy of our new sponsors…Wreford’s Transport! Once the sizes from M [Midget] to L [Lump] were sorted, the team entered the fray having won the toss and inserted ONs in a reduced 16 overs-a-side contest.

Cook’s U13’s D-Day

By Mark Bird | June 7, 2016

On the 72nd anniversary of D-Day, the Cooks travelled to Birchfield Road to face the usually strong Saints U13s.  It turned out it became something of our own D-Day by the end! Due to the traffic difficulties, probably brought about by the expected large crowd, Saints only had 5 players at 6pm, so they were […]

U11’s vs. Grange Park

By Mark Bird | June 6, 2016

After a two week layoff since the heavy defeat by West Haddon & Guilsborough, the Cooks U11s made the short trip to Grange Park looking to pick up a first win of the season.  The late withdrawal of Luke Venkatasamy [fell off his bike] meant the Cooks had 7 players, but so had Grange Park […]

U13’s vs. Heyford

By Mark Bird | May 25, 2016

The Cook’s U13s welcomed Heyford U13s to Compton Park just as a thunderstorm began to roll around the ground.  The lightning and rain followed but soon passed sufficiently to allow play to begin.  Alex Bushell replaced his brother James in the starting lineup and skipper Alfie won the toss again and invited Heyford to bat. […]

U11’s vs. West Haddon & Guilsborough

By Mark Bird | May 25, 2016

The Cooks U11s had the unenviable task of playing both West Haddon & Guilsborough [WHG] this weekend at the home of cricket (thankfully they were only allowed 8 players the same as us!).  After Bugbrooke had conceded the previous week, this was the first game for two weeks for the U11s. Yet again Cogenhoe won […]

U13’s vs. Horton House

By Mark Bird | May 20, 2016

Horton House U13s were the visitors to Compton Park on a sunny evening to take on the confident Cooks.  Unavailable Alex Bushell was replaced by Nicky Hindson on his club debut as skipper Alfie won the toss and invited Horton to bat.   The fielding was generally good again and the bowling was much improved […]

U13’s vs. Bugbrooke

By Mark Bird | May 11, 2016

After last week’s defeat to St Crispin’s, the boys headed to Bugbrooke to play a similar sized club to ourselves with optimism reasonably high for a win.  Unavailable Anya Neal and Ollie Woolley were replaced by James Bushell on his club debut and Jake Morrissey. Having won the toss, Alfie Wreford invited the Badgers to […]
