Don’t worry, I’m not retiring from blogging but I am retiring from playing… I think. We may have been here before and who knows what the future holds but in what will surely be a huge disappointment to bowlers throughout Nidderdale, I’ll no longer be assisting them in lowering their bowling average. My dibby dobblies, effective in the pre 2005 Ashes surge of cricketing talent that would appear a few years down the line, will no longer be used by batsmen as average enhancers either.
Scribbling about my on-field efforts was one aspect of the game that I’d expected to take up some space here at Silly Point but in truth there are far too many ducks and drops to justify the odd twenty-something with the bat and maybe an annual over with the ball.
Save your tears. I’ll continue to score runs by the bucket load on Don Bradman Cricket 17 and Cricket Captain 2017, take L.B. Wilson on hikes, review cricket themed literature, moan about the England team and pitch a restructuring of world cricket on an all too frequent basis!
The subtitle of this website describes me as an “… extremely average village cricketer’. I guess that I was.
