Firsts the only winners on mixed day for Park

Charlie Randall’s young charges responded to his rallying call this week with a dominant victory over Old Finchleians. His First XI built a formidable total around a fine half-century by Parth Patel and the visitors fell well short, with James Leather and Shaun Robinson, above, both among the wickets. They move up to fourth in the Championship table, bouncing back…

Urgent appeal for players tomorrow

THE sun is going to be shining this weekend; what better way to spend the day playing cricket at our pretty satellite ground at Aston? The Fifths still need a player or two to complete their line-up for this week’s home fixture versus Potton Town II. Skipper Dave Mantle (pictured) said: ‘It’ll be our first full…

Here comes the sun… and Jarrod, too

Knebworth Park’s Aussie legend Jarrod Turner returns to the club next weekend. Jarrod, pictured centre above, was a star performer on the field, an excellent coach and a superb ambassador for the club for many seasons. Let’s make sure we give him the welcome he deserves. His visit coincides with a four-team 20/20 comp starting at…

Muddy hell! Firsts crash on wet weekend

THE Firsts came down to earth with a squelch this week as they slithered to a 129-run defeat on a day the league programme was decimated by the weather. Chasing an improbable 257 for victory at Flitwick, the Park were shot out for 128 all out in 35.5 overs, dashing hopes they could continue their great form from the…

Juniors catch the winning habit

THE winning vibe at the Park seems to spread to our junior teams with the youngsters all getting away to excellent starts in their competitions. Last night, it was the under-11s, who trounced Welwyn Garden City, bowling them out for 79 after piling up 126-4 in their innings. Our under-13 squad, pictured in action above, were…

Comet ad feature spreads the word

We’re spreading the word about Knebworth Park with a half-page advert, pictured above, in this week’s Comet. The ad, with a short editorial promoting the club, is aimed at drawing in new members but also at reminding people what a great place it is to play cricket. As ever, we are particularly keen to prise…

Park off to a flier

KNEBWORTH Park enjoyed a brilliant start to the league campaign with three of the four teams in action recording excellent wins. The Firsts saw off Hoddesdon thanks to an all-round team effort. New skipper Charlie Randall led from the front with a top score of 42 to take his side to 207 all out. In reply,…

£15m Fisher is still everyone’s fantasy

HE is valued at an eye-watering £15million but Graham Fisher is emerging as the top pick in this year’s Knebworth Park fantasy cricket competition. The Third XI skipper is clearly many people’s fancy to pile up the points by repeating his extraordinary league performances of last year, when he took 50 wickets. He’s likely to be a popular skipper, too;…
