Gallery: Tring Park CC v Lord’s Taverners, Tring Park Cricket Club

On Bank Holiday Monday, I went over to Tring to photograph a charity match for the Lord's Taverners v Tring Park CC. What a lovely day! Very friendly club, wonderful atmosphere and great attendance, despite an exciting conclusion to the test match in London, people still flocked to the ground. I love working with the Taverners and can't wait to work with them again! Lord's Taverners - and an extra special thanks to Mervyn Ramsey for inviting me and my camera along. Continue reading

New Season 2015

With the new cricket season just a few weeks away, it's time to fire up the social medias once again. Hello! Welcome back! A few bits of house keeping. If you hadn't already heard, I now have a Facebook page. Go ahead and like the page if I'll be updating it as often as here. Also, a new project for me this year, I'm starting a video diary of my cricket based travels around the country. I'm not really sure what form its going to take, but I plan on filming the first episode this Thursday at a Middlesex warm up match. I'll take a blanket with me. As always, the camera will be with me and photos will be here as soon as I can. See you soon, it should be an exciting year.

Gallery: England Women v India Women, Only Test, Wormsley Day 2

Apologies for this post going up late, had a busy weekend. Back to Wormsley for the second day of the Women's test. A few hours of the afternoon were taken up by a collosal rainstorm, the effects of which are featured in the gallery below, but the other highlight of the day have to be Jenny Gunn's 5-19. Magnificent stuff. Enjoy. Continue reading

Gallery: England Women v India Women, Only Test, Wormsley Day 1

The England women have returned to play another test match at Wormsley this year. An interesting day all round. India's women, who haven't played a test match since 2006, fielded 8 debutants and England just two. Of the 16 wickets that fell, 10 were lbw. I'm returning to the match for day 2. I wonder what will happen... Continue reading

Gallery: Royal London One-Day Cup – Essex v Lancashire, Chelmsford

I finally made it to Chelmsford, after several years of being told I need to come over for a game and a failed attempt earlier in the year through being poorly. Another first class ground to tick off the list. Today, Essex v Lancashire in the 50 over contest. Thoroughly enjoyable day. Continue reading

Gallery: Women’s t20 Finals Day – RAF Vine Lane, Uxbridge

Today, a cricket event I heard about through Twitter. I am ashamed to say I didn't know the first thing about the women's county set up in England. I follow the fortunes of the England Ladies closely and love watching them play, but the county system was totally new to me. I saw the Women's t20 Finals Day being advertised through the Middlesex Women's Twitter account, and decided to head along to RAF Vine Lane in Uxbridge to see what it was all about. What a fantastic day. Excellent cricket and gorgeous sunshine. With England internationals and top quality cricket on display it was a shame there weren't more spectators, but the crowd that were there enjoyed the day. Notts Ladies won the tournament, followed by Middlesex and Kent. On the strength of today, I'd love to watch more of the domestic women's game in the future. Thoroughly enjoyable. NB: All photos belong to me, but if any of the girls playing would like copies of the photos, please feel free to email me and we'll sort something out. Continue reading

Gallery: Royal London One-Day Cup – Middlesex v Warwickshire, Lord’s

Back to Lord's for the first home match of the new 50 over domestic game. The sun was shining and the cricket was tense, thrilling and ultimately disappointing for the home fans. However the highlight of this match, for me, was seeing Jonathan Trott return to Lord's and return to form after a difficult winter. I for one have missed the scratching of the crease and weird and wonderful facial expressions he pulls while out in the field. It's good to see him back again. Continue reading
