Norfolk Tour Cricket Tour 2008

In previous years the club has undertaken various ventures to exotic locations such as Exeter, Torquay, Bournemouth, Nottingham and the never to be forgotten, never to be repeated jaunt to Minehead in 2005.

Along the way we've seen sights that can never be expunged from the memory no matter how hard we try. Phil Gourd sleepwalking, Balmar Baines with sleeping with his finger up his ar*e, Darrne Lunney playing and missing 11 consecutive deliveries before being cleaned up on the twelth, we've seen Darrne crash and burn spectacularly in the nightclubs of Nottingham, Dave Bridgland selected last for the first time in his life for a drinking game and subsequently career drunkenly away into the somerset night. Bobby Boatwright resplendant in his pulling cardigan, Chris Latino stopping a certain six with his chest and of course Mathew Freeman failing to take a wicket or score a runduring an entire tour. We've also sat around disconsolantly at last orders with the shutters going up around town and wondered which clown decided that Minehead, complete with it's 11pm curfew would be the ideal place for a week of cricket and alcohol abuse.

In 2007 we headed east for the first time and what a tour that was. Skipper Bexfield became a fugitive from the law, Brodie and Tatts explored the darker sites of Great Yarmouth only to find themselves and a nutter in a casino, Keeley got a sparkling half century and of course we shall never forget the mini riot in Latino's bedroom.

In light of the events last year we have decided to forgo foreign climes and once again visit Norfolk for our annual raid on distant cricket clubs.

We are staying at the Elizabeth Hotel in Great Yarmouth where each player will have their own room, so no more sleepless nights for the skipper listnening to the deafening snoring of Mr Cooper.

Fines Committee

Following the runaway success of the Club Court during the 2005 Minehead Tour (drinking together at midday at least guaranteed somewhere would be open), the fines committee will again be in session in the hotel bar prior to the games against Lowestoft, Norwich and Brooke to rule on any particular instances of incompetence, ineptitude and outstanding crassness. The procedure will be the same as always. Charges can be brought by anyone against anyone. Any spurious claims may result in the accuser themselves being fined for wasting the courts time. Any player found guilty by the incorruptable Mr Justice Tattersall will have the option of paying the 50p fine or appealing against his sentence and risk having the fine doubled in the event of a failed plea to High Court Judge, Mr Justice Barker.


In the event of heavy and prolonged rain and cancellation of fixtures, players are encouraged to drink heavily and irresponsibly. Be warned, the disastrous rain wrecked tour to Torquay in 1999 showed thata great deal onf money is required and a spare liver.
