Club News

Harwell14th Sep 2014
A very friendly game which we lost by only 20 runs. Chasing over 200 looked a tough ask, however with Simon Sharman (35), Chris Smith (35) and Climps (52) the impossible looked almost possible.
Ewelme V Ewelme (Part 2)6th Sep 2014
Unfortunately our opposition could not get a side so we played another Ewelme V Ewelme it was great to see so many youngsters playing. Great BBQ and beers, everyone had a great time.
Greys Green31st Aug 2014
Our planned game against RAF Benson was cancelled so we picked up a late fixture against Greys Green. We lost by over 150 runs, unfortunately we were undone by a 4th wicket partnership of over 160 runs.
Ipsden17th Aug 2014
127 years on since we first lost to Ipsden, we lost again! Unfortunately our bats man were not as good as their bowlers. 75% of the team were out youth policy!

Richard Denner's XI3rd Aug 2014
We lost, however I am waiting on scorecard to find out by how much!
Highmoor27th Jul 2014
With the fixture secretary taking a few weeks off to ensure his averages are maintained, we arrived at Highmoor for the 14.00 start only for find the ground locked. At 14.05 the first of the Highmoor team arrived for the 14.30 start! Clearly Woody is playing mind games to ensure he tops the batting and bowling. With our pre match warm up routine ruined, now could we deliver as a team. For those Cricketers who watch test match special know that Nassar Hussain is constantly reminded for putting the Australians in at Adelaide, Highmoor may be Reesís Adelaide. Rees won the toss and decided to field. To put is simply when Highmoor reached 251 for 4 after 34.2 overs and declared, putting them in didnít look a great decision. The highlights were 2 wickets for Hall and Monk and a 114 not out from Shamil Highmoors opening batsman. The Ewelme innings started well, at least for the first 3 overs where Louis Garbett was out for 6 having only played one scoring shot! Lewis Hall and Aiden Pugh didnít trouble the scorers. Chris A Smith looked to be carrying on from where he had left off the previous week with a lovely cover drive. (Please note he scored a Fifty last week, he thought he hadnít received enough credit. Yes, that right Chris A Smith got a Fifty not out last week). Chris got a couple of balls rising into the body and seemed to lose confidence and quickly his wicket for 9 with Tom Bowden following him back after scoring 10. John Rees joined Andy Monk who had seen off the opening bowlers only to chip the spinner to short mid-wicket for 17. John Rees was out caught on the boundary for 21 after a couple of hefty blows. Lucas Pugh was out for 2, Chris E Smith for 1 and C Stevens for 0 although he had put up a robust defence for 5 overs. Richard Hall was not out at the end for 31. Andy Monk was man of the match for 17, two wickets and a great catch. Louis Garbett was umpire of the match with some very feisty positive umpiring!
Harwell20th Jul 2014
We don't have good memories of visiting Harwell in recent years. This continued when Harwell hit 205 - 4. With wides 3rd top scorer on 24 John Rees had a busy day behind the stumps! Ewelme's reply never really looked like threatening the target, however a good fifty from Chris (a) Smith ensured that we reached a respectable 162.
Swyncombe13th Jul 2014
Cancelled - Due to lack of numbers. If your interested in a game drop an email to the contacts on the website.
Sydenham6th Jul 2014
Sydenham made ammends for our victory earlier in the season. Unfortunately our battling just wasn't good enough, George Turner top scored with 19. A couple of wickets from our up coming yougster Lucas Pugh.
Nettlebed29th Jun 2014
A good win for Ewelme by 78 runs. A good knock from John Rees of 53 not out meant that Ewelme got to some respectability of 101. Nettlebed were blasted away by Chris Smith 4 - 11 and Woody 2 - 6.
Ewelme v Ewelme22nd Jun 2014
We made it. A great club effort has meant that we have half the square playable and the other half seeded and resting. A great game with high scores for Ewelme the highlights were 72 Retired from Woody and 72 out from Antony Dyson
Peppard Stoke Row Maharajah's15th Jun 2014
Another Win! It turned out to be a low scoring nail biter. RSRM were bowled out for 61 with Lucas Pugh getting 2 wickets on his debut, 3 - 0 for Woody and 2 - 5 for David Kilcoyne. Ewelme got over the line with two wickets to spare.
Brightwalton8th Jun 2014

Sydenham1st Jun 2014
49 run win. A bright start from Stuart Ellis 14 and Louis Garbett 40 got Ewelme off to a great start, this continued all the way down with number 10 and 11 where Andy Monk and Harry Turner put on 32 to get Ewelme to 174. Sydenham were in the hunt despite 2 wickets a piece for Louis Garbett and Richard Hall, Sydenham were finished off by a 3 over spell from John Rees who took 4 - 7.
Longwick25th May 2014

Brightwell Cum Sotwell4th May 2014
Having only turned up with effectively 6 players we did not deserve to get close, however we had an enjoyable opening fixture with a noteable 28 from Woody almost carrying his bat and a quick fire 31 from Louis Garbett. 3 Wickets for Ellis and 2 for Louis and Woody almost gave Ewelme a surprise win. BCS won by two wickets.
Cholsey27th Apr 2014
Cancelled - The first match of the season was cancelled as the Cholsey pitch was too damp after morning rain. (If they want to know what a damp pitch looks like they should have looked at ours!)
2014 - The great Flood20th Apr 2014
2014 has brought a new Chairman and Captain to Ewelme. Neither realised the difficulties that they would need to overcome just to play a home game! The pitch had 9 weeks with a foot of water on the square. When the water receeded we had 6 weeks to the 22nd June the date we had targeted to play our first home fixture. Would it be possible.
