Date of the article July 8, 2019
Metro met Sussex for the first time since last year’s cup final in the semi-final at Highgate on a Saturday where a gentle breeze and good cloud cover made for excellent playing conditions. There was some variation a few spots of rain as the second innings got underway and warm sunshine as a very close and exciting match drew to an end.
Three O’clock and Time for Tea
Date of the article July 1, 2019
A very hot day so tea was very welcome just before three – even more so as the game was already over! It was as if all you had to do was snooze gently in the sunshine just for a moment and you had missed a magnificent Metro performance. The Lions had arrived in third place in the league with a game in hand over Metro; this result places Metro in a strong league position ahead of their cup semi-final against Sussex next Saturday.
Devils Lose Two and One
Date of the article June 24, 2019
Well the weather has improved and Metro have beaten Yorkshire twice, in the BBS cup at home and away in the league. The cup win means a home semi-final with the opportunity to avenge last year’s defeat in the final as Sussex visit on 6th July. The Devils have not taken up playing golf but did lose two players to injury, Ahmed unable to bowl after his first over had conceded just 8 runs and then at the start of the chase, Jack – who pulled up lame taking an easy single while running for Hassan.
