A badger at bat! Original image scanned from the cover of the 21st anniversary booklet

A warm and friendly welcome from Badgers Cricket Club – a wandering cricket side who play only friendly cricket matches, mostly in the villages of Surrey – and who also enjoy a yearly three day tour (for many years to the Cotswolds, briefly to Dorset and more recently to Cheshire). For more information about the club and this web site, take a peek at the about page.

The site has continued to grow since it first appeared in March 2000, and in addition to up-to-the-minute results, scorecards, match reports, news and fixtures, you will also find more statistical information than you could shake a stick at, the Badgers ‘hall of fame’, a list of the current club officers, a sadly rather stagnant photo gallery and links to general cricket sites and many of the clubs that we play, or have played, against.



What’s New

2 Jan 2017

As promised immediately after the dinner I have completed manual entry of the best performances information for seasons prior to 1984, so the only information missing now is for 1981, due to the missing scorebook and for 1984, since I am in the throes of entering that data into Play-Cricket and it seemed daft to do some of it twice. In doing so I have also split the lists across decade by decade pages, in the same way as all of the other season by season averages, in order to keep the overall page sizes reasonable. The Statistical Sett records details of a handful of changes arising from the process of building and entering the additional data. I also feel that I should point out that all of the data involved has been collected and entered manually, so there is every chance that it contains the odd error or three.

The addition of this data has had a couple of side effects, in that the decade bowling pages now include more best bowling figures on both the official bowling tables and the complete bowling tables, with more than 60 new entries added for the period concerned. The other area to benefit has been the personal pages, with those same best bowling figures showing up where appropriate and anyone that took four or more wickets in an innings, recorded 50 or more runs in an innings or simply recorded their best batting and/or bowling during the first twenty-five years of the club’s existence now showing that information in their personal best performances section. The most obvious single beneficiary of this is the legend that is Brian Moore, who gains more than 150 such performances (29 batting & 122 bowling), but the following have all seen at least a dozen new entries added – Albert Briscoe (8 & 11), Allan Butt (2 & 16), Alan Tickner (17 & 31), Brent Noble (28 & 5), Dave Tickner (14 & 17), Pete Legge and (3 & 14), Steve Card (14 bowling).

Once I have entered the 1984 data then I also intend to add an overall ‘best performances ever’ page into the hall of fame and thus finally replicate every table that was included in the fortieth anniversary document.

In addition to (almost) finishing off the best performances, a process that I only started on 27th October and had completed in almost exactly a month, there are two other related background projects that I have also brought to some sort of fruition for this update. These manifest themselves on a new dynamic multi-season averages page, something that I started work on just over five years ago and which Darrell has had access to ever since on my local version of the site but has never found its way into the public eye. One of the primary reasons for that, along with some significant changes off the back of comments made by Andy Iwanozcko when given a sneak peek all of those years ago, was that the new page originally had no way to link back into the rest of the site and didn’t really sit well with the standard navigation layout. For the past year or so I have been fiddling away at trying to create a new page layout, getting rid of the old Javascript menus and adding something more modern and hopefully better able to adapt to the needs of mobile devices. The end result is visible on that new dynamic averages page and I would welcome any feedback before I consider rolling it out across the whole site.

13 Nov 2016

The annual presentation dinner took place last night (yes, I really am posting an update the day after the event)!? Details of who won what can be found on the news page, along with a brief report of proceedings, and the Hall Of Fame Trophy winners page has been updated accordingly.

Things will go quiet for a little while now but I am well on the way to being able to provide full best performances information for all seasons prior to 1984, having already entered the first dozen or so seasons, the first fruits of which are already visible on some personal pages, most notably, for now, our esteemed chairman and the legendary Brian Moore. Once the process is complete then you can expect to see both individual pages for each season, as we already have for seasons from 1985 on, and an overall best performances ever page in the hall of fame.

Whilst on the subject of personal pages I omitted to mention with the last update that both Alec Cochrane and Pete Snook played often enough in 2016 (and over the previous four seasons) to end up so endowed but Daniel Ward has lost his since he no longer meets the qualification criteria. Whilst on the subject of omissions I should also mention that I failed to pick up on an unusual element of the second Tadworth game, which I have rectified in the revised match report.

Not sure exactly when the next update will be – I am currently managing to add best performance details at a rate of one per day, but the number of games played increases somewhat from the mid-1970s onwards – but hopefully something useful will appear before Christmas. More likely, given my track record, is an apologetic update just before (or just after) the AGM, but let’s hope that for once I can offer a little more than my existing reputation suggests.

7 Nov 2016

Cross-checking of the data is now complete – Darrell and I have even taken the time to check against the paper scorebook entries, and correct some of them, so my thanks to him for sharing that chore – so for the first time ever I am now in the position to bring you the full season report in advance of the dinner and the distribution of awards off the back of the averages contained therein.

All of the other pages have been updated with the 2016 figures, including all decade by decade averages pages, the personal pages and the individual records page.

In addition those efforts mean that you can now find historical results for 2016 along with the performances and partnerships.

For the record the changes made as a result of the checking can be found on the Statistical Sett page.

Not sure what the next updates will be, although there will almost certainly be one at some time after the dinner documenting the awards made on the night and I have started work on both entering 1984 into Play-Cricket and building up a database of historical best performances, so either (or both) of those might come to friution before the AGM announcement.

The older What’s New entries are now held on separate pages, to keep this main page cleaner and smaller, and you can also navigate to them using the Javascript menu (under Home).
