Knotty Green had for many years played in the Kookaburra mid-Bucks league. In 2016 we joined a new league, The Chiltern Cricket League, which we believed would enhance playing conditions and standards. We will be fielding 2 teams each Saturday. The 1st team will be led by new Captain, Tommy Patel, won its Division in 2016 and finished a creditable mid table in their new division last season. The 2nd team will continue to be captained by Jack Patel. They won promotion from Div 4 last season and look forward to a challenging season ahead, playing at a higher level. The Sunday side plays friendly fixtures against local teams. We have a slightly reduced programme this year, with 11 matches from late April to mid-September. This year we have a new Captain in Matt Sutcliffe
Installed at the end of the 2011 season, Knotty Green now has an electronic scoreboard, a real rarity at village level. Some things don’t change however, the clubhouse bar is still the place to celebrate or commiserate after matches. Each year, about mid-season, we hold Club Day, an excuse to get the bunting out and play a good natured game of village cricket between past and present players. Also this year, we are introducing a ‘single wicket’ competition for the first time, which is sure to be keenly contested.
