KCC YOUTH ACADEMY

A handful of KCC members have been reluctantly training in the off-season, down at Lords. Meanwhile, the Kensington Youth Academy has been boosted by the arrival of several new recruits. Kensington stalwart Saurav Sen has been busy looking after the training of new prospect Mihir Sen at our top-secret overseas training facility.

Meanwhile closer to home, Otis Keleher is working hard on his cover drives. Good shape that Otis. Like your dad and uncle.

 

 

PITCH INTRUDER

The Kensington CC vs Reigate Pilgrims annual all-day fixture was meandering along. The cricket itself was an after-thought. KCC dropped 12 catches (must be a club record … even by our own standards!). A disgruntled spectator,  unable to hold herself anymore, invaded the pitch and made her views on the cricket obvious to one and all.

“You call this cricket?” – Mrs F, pitch intruder at Reigate Pilgrims (full identity not disclosed due to security reasons).
