Trip to Berlin CC and Havell CC Germany 2014
Trip to Berlin 2014
A group of 16 Walnuts take on the might of Berlin CC at the Maifield in the grounds of the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. A terrific venue and location and a very friendly host club. Unfortunately we were never able to get up enough momentum to give Berlin CC a close game with Sean topscoring at 25 but a very enjoyable game played in true competitive taverner tradition against a very likeminded club.
Our second match against Havel CC in Potsdamn an hour or more by train south of Berlin proved to be a very one sided affair.Havel CC are a crack outfit. Their ground is set in rural countryside and Raghu captain of Havel CC made us all feel at home. Ciaran was our top scoring batsman on just 13 so that sums up their powerful standard of bowling. We had a great time in their company and enjoyed our stay in Germany.
Group who travelled over were: Graham, Philip, Paddy B, Mowldsy, Cyril, John Murray, Tom D, Trevor, Eddie, Mark, George, Tom Markham, Tom Morrissey, Ciaran, Donners, Sean.
