Old Haslingfield in the News: Cricket in 1913

On May 1st 1913  Haslingfield CC held its annual meeting. Prizes were donated by the President, Mr. J. Chapman. The winners of the various prizes were:
Batting, Mr. L. Barnard, with an average of 16;
Bowling, Mr. W. A. Wisbey, average 6 runs per wicket;
Fielding, Mr. Sidney Gifford.
The first match of the season was played at Eversden, and was won by Haslingfield by ten runs, the scores being 21 for the home team, and 31 for the visitors. Mr. J. Ling was responsible for 14 of the latter total.

Personal experience suggests that the wicket at Eversden has improved considerably over the last 100 years!
