The first league game is this weekend at home to Billericay. I just need to brush up on some of my umpiring and practice a little more of the scoring and also get my head round the score book that we use at the club as it's laid out differently to the book I use. I was quite pleased to note that the 3rd XI team we played against this weekend were pretty inept at umpiring and yet no-one seemed fussed, but then again it wasn't a league game - or is it that I'm too conscientious when it comes to these things?
At this point I've got two main concerns...
No.1 - Do I have a tea-lady/bloke?
No.2 - Will I have eleven players?
It looks as though I will be playing with everybody that is left over and I kind of get the impression it's going to be tough to win a game, but we'll have to see, it may be the same for the teams we're playing against? I've got some decent bowlers if they're not moved up into the 3rds, but I have been told this might happen. At this point it's all speculation, no-one quite knows what's going to happen until this Saturday, so more of a clearer picture will emerge on Wednesday when the teams are selected.
