Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Sporting Alfas 1st X1 205 for 10 lost to Llangellech C C 242 for 9

Llangellech CC flew over for this weekends match, Batting first set about the lack lustre SACC attack with a flurry of well placed boundaries, the score ticking along nicely at 8+ an over. Alger finally making the break through bowling Robert for 29.

Spin slowed down the run rate and a few catches bought a touch of decency to the score board, 175 for 5 the visitors looked like 200 was a long way of but the tail wagged and even the dismissal of highest scorer Richard(79) did not change the race towards 250 A well struck 35 by Skipper Simon and a needed 29 from Chris gave the team a well deserved 242 score.

CRICKET AT THE CARTAMA OVAL  18th April 2017

Cricket has seen its peaks and troughs in the South of Spain, but the game is slowly developing again, as proved by the Costa del Sol Crusaders.

The Costa del Sol Crusaders’ comeback onto the local cricketing scene has mirrored the growth of the game in Spain as a whole.

The importance of a match three weeks ago, when the Crusaders played host to the Piratas de Pinatar, a side from the town of San Pedro del Pinatar, around 40 kilometres north of La Manga (Murcia), was something the club based in Cártama revelled in, defeating the visitors in the first Twenty20 match before the Piratas de Pinatar came back in the second game to tie the series 1-1.

Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Sporting Alfas 2nd X1 184 for 4 beat Ruddington C C 181 for 10

Ruddington’s 2017 Spanish tour came to a close against Sporting Alfas 2nd XI on the 16th April with an enjoyable game for the visiting team, using the cricket as a break between the “rigours” of touring!

As the toss had been completed the night before, Ruddington were the team to try and set a total for the home side to chase. However, the wily visitors mixed up their batting order to such an extent that the home side did not know who the dangermen were and who were the rabbits.

The answer to that question came in the 2nd Over as Walker, coming in from the bottom end, clean bowled Molloy for 1 with his 1st ball of the over. Molloy could have been forgiven for being a bit annoyed as the next ball had the ‘keeper diving full away to his left to stop a wild delivery but next ball, Walker had done it again, clean bowling Derry for 0!

Fruit and Marriott were able to navigate a few overs together before, just after receiving a life as a sharp, hard edge from Fruit just failed to stick in the ‘keeper’s gloves, Fruit fell in the next over, nicking one straight behind and Byrne taking the catch off Abdul.

Gandy was next in and looked to stamp some composure on the innings with some unhurried play and straight bats. Marriott however could not quite say the same! The left hander was being tortured by young Roper with well-placed deliveries and with the final ball of his 2nd over, Roper got one through Marriott’s defences and clean bowled him.

However, the young bowler had a rude awakening once Storr came to the crease! Maybe a bit distracted by the left hander, the bowler put down a few too many leg side deliveries which Storr was able to treat with delight, smashing one over for 24.

Marriner was brought on and toyed mercilessly with Gandy, and Fletcher having put him to point. 4 times Marriner got Gandy to pop one towards point and 4 times it just evaded Fletcher, Fletcher finally moved across to Square Leg after trying to get out of the way of one too many balls and taking a rapping on the shins! Marriner got his man in the end though as Gandy played the same shot once too often and found the waiting hands of J. Perman this time just wide of point.

ALI YOUNGSTER CC 87 ALL OUT BEAT PAK I CARE CC 37 ALL OUT BY 50 RUNS

Yesterday the Cataluyna Junior League got under way and it was Ali Youngster CC who made a winning start at the expense of Pak I Care Brothers Junior Cricket Club in a game that was dominated by both bowling sides.

Ali won the toss at Montjuic Stadium in Barcelona and elected to bat first. The first five batsmen only scored six runs from the bat as Atif stormed through the Ali top ordered with a fierce spell of bowling. The middle order offered some resistance and Ali finally ended up all out for 87 in eighteen overs. Ali  finally ended up with the amazing figures of five wickets for just two runs at the end of his four overs.

PIRATES IN MALAGA  17th April 2017

Pirates in Malaga!

Don’t be alarmed, it’s the Pinatar Pirates Cricket Club!!

That’s right, David Cooper at the Cartama Oval, minutes from Malaga invited the Pirates to travel down to take part in two days of T20 competition.

Pinatar Pirates being a club that just enjoy playing a game they love were quick to take up the offer and players made arrangements to travel south to Malaga for an exciting weekend of cricket. Not knowing what to expect they were in for a pleasant surprise, arriving on the 25th of March for the first match, they were greeted by a beautiful green grass wicket, very different to the artificial wickets that clubs around Spain are used to playing on.

Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Sporting Alfas 2nd X1 189 for 9 lost to Cryptics C.C. 190 for 7

The Cryptics final game of their Alfaz tour saw them looking for the clean sweep as they arrived fresh on Sunday morning having won two close matches already on tour.

Their serious approach to the game was in evidence right from the start as they decided to partake in an actual toss and won it, inviting the home side to set a target and the Perman pair of Mark and Jack strode out to try and set things in motion.

Things started well for the home side, Jack in particular taking a fancy to the Cryptics bowling following on from his well struck 70odd from Friday but in the 5th Over, Hodgson was able to make the breakthrough, Mark Perman chipping one to mid-off and Alfas were 20/1 off 5.

Fletcher, the Centurion from last week, was next in and with Jack Perman, saw off the opening bowlers, including a nice tidy spell from an up and coming talent in the guise of B. Armstrong. Both batsmen played sensibly and Perman hit his 50 off 36 deliveries.

However, in the 16th Over, Perman finally fell with the score on 94, Hutchinson getting him to offer a chance which was well caught. Out for 56 including 2 6’s and 7 4’s.

Abdul was next in and next out, after a couple of boundaries, M. Ward got one to rear up and Abdul got a slight nick on it as it passed his head giving the ‘keeper a nice catch, 109/3 and the Alfas mini collapse was looming.
Next in was a new face for Alfas, Harry Walsh making his debut with some nice technical defensive play. However, after connecting nicely with one, he forgot to check where it had gone and let the visitors run him out just short of his ground, 112/4.

Byrne joined Fletcher for a bit but the Vice Captain followed the downfall of his Captain, chipping one to Mid Off and in the same over, Ahmed came and went, hitting one straight up in the air for the ‘keeper to gather easily, a bad over for the home side 124/6.

Briggs joined Fletcher and together they were able to stem the loss of wickets for a while. Fletcher went through to his 50 off 51 balls as the pair put on 36 together before Fletcher (76), looking to get a move on was clean bowled by young Armstrong, back on for a 2nd spell. 160/7.

Braitwaite joined Briggs and they added another 28 before Briggs called for a languid, sedate single but it was too quick for Braitwaite who was run out at the non-striker’s end.

Dhondai came in for the last ball of the 39th over and then Roper was in for the 40th Over, Dhondai clean bowled by Ward looking to power up the Golden Duck tables!

In the end, Alfas saw out the overs and posted 188, not quite the score they were looking for when 111 at drinks but a fine bowling display from the visitors fighting back after drinks.


Thompson and Armstrong came out after tea to start the chase, and start it they did! Both batsmen were able to see off the opening bowlers without problems and bring the team to 75 before Alfas finally made the breakthrough.

Continuing his renaissance as a bowler, Fletcher was able to break the partnership in his 2nd over when he lured Armstrong into a rash shot that just went high and not too far, allowing Fletcher to stabilise himself under it and take the C&B.

And Fletcher was at it again 2 overs later, again with the last ball of the over, getting the other opener Thompson to pick out J. Perman on the deep Cow boundary who took the catch to prevent the ball going for 6. 92/2

Young Firth joined Hardy at the crease and together they put on another 40 but at a more sedate pace before Firth, off the bowling of J. Perman, picked out Braitwaite at point and was next to go for 7. 

That brought the other young bowler to the crease, Armstrong, and he got to see Hardy fall for a good 36 as Perman claimed another wicket, Byrne taking a faint edge behind the stumps and the match was swinging back to a contest. 145/4
The Alfas new boy Walsh was given the chance to turn his arm over but facing a fellow Leg Spinner at the other end in new man Hutchinson gave him a rough start but he plugged away for 4 solid overs with some nice turn on display.
The introduction of Dhondai was too much for young Armstrong though as the ball was given more flight than the plane taking him home and he was only able to pop one up to Braitwaite, the “seasoned” campaigner not taking it easy on the younger players. 168/5 with 5 overs to go and 21 needed.

Hutchinson followed Armstrong back to the pavilion in Dhondai’s next over. With the sun starting to fall in the sky, Hutchinson hooked one to the Leg Side boundary only to see the giant frame of Fletcher, framed in a corona of light, take the catch safely, 179/6 with 2 overs to go.

Ahmed kept things tight in the penultimate over and it came down to the last over, Dhondai bowling, 4 runs needed to win. After a couple of singles, Dhondai struck again, his 3rd wicket in 3 overs, M. Ward hitting one up that Byrne was able to scramble forward and take around the middle of the crease. 2 balls to go, 2 runs to win…and the next ball C. Ward hit and the batsmen took off for 2, however, with the game finely poised for the last ball, an Alfas fielder panicked and went for a non-existent run out chance from 2 feet away from the stumps and the batsmen came back for an overthrow and the game was one with 1 ball to spare.

A great game of cricket with some talented young cricketers on both sides showing the game is open to all ages. A fine tour by the Cryptics who Alfas hope to see back in a couple of years depending on their touring commitments.
