The season starts here... well almost

April, one of the best months of the year! The cricket season starts and we often get the best cricket weather in any case. I remember a couple if years ago when i was tanned before the end of April and then it rained until October.

Tomorrow the Bears play a pre-season friendly against Leicestershire at Grace Road. Then next week go to the Parks to play Oxford UCCE and no doubt give the students a good thrashing (well you know what goes on in Halls...)

We have to April 19th however until the first home game (Somerset FPT) and the 22nd before we get any real cricket i.e. county championship (Hampshire). So still 3 weeks away but the new season is here, you can smell it. Well grass and flowers anyway not leather and oil.
