I played cricket for Blackrod as a teenager and one of our opponents was Standish, enjoyed the games there but I think we were rained off for two matches. Good memories Rev. Thanks.

I can only mis-quote; "O to be in England, now that Cricket's there!!"

Local people have successfully stopped Wainhomes from building 70 houses on the cricket ground on 2 occasions. This is one of the few green open spaces left in Standish. Bradley Industrial Estate.BradleyOver 900 houses have been given Planning Permission to be built either side of Rectory Lane. Standish is Full.

Mick, I once worked alongside a cricketer who'd had all his front teeth smashed out with a corky ball, he'd prevented the batter from scoring a six though.

I don't understand cricket at all but I always like to see it being played. I think it looks so lovely with the players in their white clothes on a Summers Day.


Comment by Mick on 15th May 2014 at 16:12
Irene the rules are simple,,,

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game

Comment by Jerry M on 15th May 2014 at 19:09
I would rather watch paint dry than watch cricket, so boring.


Comment by Mal on 15th May 2014 at 20:30
