HCC 2019 Season: 



Harberton CC v Plymstock CC
Sat 20 April 13.00 start
40 overs per side.

The sun shone on the Bank Holiday weekend and the ground looked beyond compare for the start of
the 2019 season. Our thanks to all involved for that.
Unfortunately the same could not be said for Harberton’s cricket or team availability (a bank holiday
Saturday being difficult for a number of reasons).
With late withdrawals we took to the field with only 8 players with Plymstock lending us one. The 8
included several club stalwarts easing their way in at the start of the year.
Plymstock fielded most of their first XI treating the match as a warm-up for their oncoming league
Plymstock batted first. Finlay Porter and Dave Norris opened up and bowled well with Finlay getting
early scalps bowling an opener and having their No 3 mistime a pull for a sharp catch by Andrew
Frankland at mid-wicket. Thereafter the lack of bowling resources available to captain for the day
Mike McClement predictably led to a mid-innings deterioration for the bowling side. Finlay and Dave
were allowed to bowl more than their allocation but runs were shipped to leave Plymstock on 293-5.
The tea was of a high standard and sadly greatly outshone Harberton’s batting. Colin Shearer went to
an early lbw decision and the writing was on the wall when captain McClement (realistically our only
hope for a respectable total) also went for a duck coming in at 3. This report won’t dwell on our
batting as it is doubtless a record for all the wrong reasons. Suffice to say, all (well 7) out for 19.
From my standpoint as umpire for the day though, Mike captained admirably with limited resources
and everybody gave it their all with no lack of good humour.
We can only get better from here and as the holder of last season’s duck award I can be happy that a
good number have got off to a flying start this season.
To close…let’s all make ourselves available whenever we can to make Noah (and Sleepy’s) job easier
and please can we all reply to team availability e mails within 24 hours.

AWARDS EVENING Friday 12th April




Good to see everybody last night, a great turn out.
Congratulations to Sleepy and Noah for their batting and bowling awards, Matt for the Most Improved Player, Duck award to Roger. Jack won the midweek batting and Trigger the bowling! Players player was voted for on the night and won by Mike; he even managed to find the trophy at the other end of the pub.
The White Shield was presented to Isabelle representing the Tea Team(ladies+Matt) and it was great to see Matt and two ladies present during the evening.
All this information in the Season Guide prepared by Rob with great timing. I will get it on the website soon and some copies will be in the pavilion.
Great evening and excellent to see Barry.
PS Simon messed his diary up and didn't make it and then complained he didn't get an award...
WORK DAY 13.4.19
Thanks to all who helped on Saturday. We got a lot done in chilly but dry conditions. Thanks to Bill and Graham for coordinating and overseeing things, Trigger especially for providing digger and tipper to resurface the lane and also dig a drain for the workshed. The pavilion was cleaned and refurbished led by Mike. Thanks to all the other workers Jack (+Rupert), Angus, Simon, Andrew and Noah(who was bravely facing a match in the afternoon).
I may have forgotten someone, if so apologies and fine to the Chairman.
It is looking great up there and the weather is set fair for Saturday! Tea team teed up(sorry)! Come and support even if you cant play...although we need everybody out for two fixtures.
