Rasmdell v Wherwell (away, 17/07/2021)
My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on the limb And all I remember is thinking I want to be like them Ever since I was little Ever since I was little it looked like fun And it’s no coincidence I’ve come And I can die when I’m done Crazy- Gnarls Barkley Our regular wordsmith believes that a kite before the the game is good luck, goodness knows what he would have made of 7 of the beasts flying high.

Wherwell v RAM (home, 10/07/2021)
I let it fall, my heart, And as it fell, you rose to claim it It was dark and I was over, Until you kissed my lips and you saved me My hands, they were strong, But my knees were far too weak To stand in your arms, Without falling to your feet But there’s a side to you, That I never knew, never knew All the things you’d say, They were never true, never true And the games you’d play, You would always win, always win Set Fire to the Rain ~ Adele

Farley v Wherwell (away, 03/07/2021)
I’m a street walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm, I’m a runaway son of the nuclear A-bomb I am a world’s forgotten boy, The one who searches and destroys Honey, gotta help me please, Somebody gotta save my soul, Baby, detonate for me, aw! Look out honey, ‘cause I’m using technology, Ain’t got time to make no apology The weather looked questionable. The pitch looked decent. The ground looked in good nick if a little short one side.

Wherwell v Liss (home, 26/06/2021)
On the first part of the journey, I was looking at all the life There were plants and birds and rocks and things, There was sand and hills and rings The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz, And the sky with no clouds The heat was hot, and the ground was dry, But the air was full of sound I’ve been through the desert… No one likes to see a club struggling for numbers, especially one established in 1880, so all credit to Liss for turning up to honour the fixture even though they had to start with 10.

Ropley v Wherwell (away, 19/06/2021)
Livin' room, Passin' time, Talkin' trash, Sippin' wine I need somethin' more substantial! New deck, Playin' cards, I don’t like to work this hard I think I’ll have to cancel! I’m runnin' outta time, About to lose my mind I got the six, Gimme your nine! The Wherwell wrecking ball is picking up momentum with a comprehensive victory over Ropley this week. Despite the size of the victory there are still some areas for improvement and that means we can only get better!

Wherwell v Hursley Park (home, 12/06/2021)
We clawed, we chained, our hearts in vain, We jumped, never asking why We kissed, I fell under your spell, A love no one could deny Don’t you ever say I just walked away, I will always want you I can’t live a lie, running for my life, I will always want you Chasing 185, Hursley were 157-4… Wherwell came in like a wrecking ball Having won the toss Wherwell elected to bat, the pitch looked good and the weather better.

Chawton v Wherwell (away, 05/06/2021)
When you’re weary, Feeling small When tears are in your eyes, I’ll dry them all I’m on your side, Oh, when times get rough And friends just can’t be found Troubled waters at camp Wherwell after yesterday’s result, but the bridge is that we’ve been here before. In 2019 we suffered an early defeat at the hands of Chawton and went on to win the league.. history has a habit of repeating itself.

Wherwell v Hartley Wintney (home, 29/05/2021)
It’s been twenty hours and 638 days since they took league cricket away And nothing compares Wherwell have been itching to get their inaugural Div 3 campaign underway having been hampered by inclement weather throughout May. With the month almost gone without a ball bowled in anger, the forecasts suggested that league cricket would once again commence. Wherwell won the toss and having chosen to bat were stunned to be 3-1 after the first over, Cooke (2) failing on debut.
