This Sunday we will be having a Georgian Fair to celebrate our bicentenary. As well as lots of games for everyone, there will be plenty of food and ice cream to eat. Then you can watch us play a match with 1815 rules in costume. Do join in with the fancy dress, there might even be a prize.
In 1809 the Laws of cricket were revised to something resembling the current laws. Wickets were smaller, bowling was underarm, and there was no protective equipment or boundaries. Although there was no tea interval as such, there was plenty of eating and drinking and a huge emphasis on gambling. Runs were counted as notches although scoring was now on paper and catches didn’t count to the bowler.
