Departing the Harrogate area in shorts, sunglasses and with factor 50 at the ready, the Romany boys rode in the East Riding looking to get things back on track after the shock defeat at Swinton, and to avenge the last ball defeat at Yapham 1 yr ago. Clearly none of us had looked at the […]
I think it is fair to say we all enjoyed the day – lovely venue, excellent tea, friendly opposition (and the only rainfall was during the tea interval) – all as usual at Swinton Park – but sadly this year we lost…Romany batted first – on probably the softest, spongiest, slowest pitch and outfield any […]

MATCH REPORT YORKSHIRE GENTS VS ROMANY CC 22ND JULY ROMANY WON BY 30 RUNS The game last year was a heavy loss for Romany, and neither us, nor YG enjoyed the day. So this year we selected a much stronger XI to have a much more competitive game and a possible chance of victory, so […]
The match at L & M was another close game that lasted the full 70 overs and Romany managed another victory by 9 runs. The weather was perfect for cricket, at this super ground in the Dales. We won the toss, and as we were still waiting for George to arrive we decided to bat. […]
Sunshine, Pizza (!) and cricketing drama…. Following the theatre of the 2017 fixture when it came down to the last ball with Romany needing 6 to win and President Hockin on strike, could this year’s game possibly be as tense……? The Romany ‘caravan’ headed over to Yapham a couple of players short despite the daily […]
