The Cavendish Cavaliers are a very friendly, social side based at the Cavendish Hotel in Torquay, Devon. We play our home fixtures at Barton Cricket Club on Cricketfield Road. Since our founding in 2008 we have always been proud to call ourselves ‘Devon’s Worst Cricket Team’, but having been defeated by the worst team in Dorset, Milton-On-Stour, we are now claiming to be the worst team in the Westcountry. If you would like to challenge us for this title, do get in touch.

Tale Millers

The Millers’ fabulous ground at Peyhembury

This seemed like a very long way to travel for an evening T20, especially when we turned off the A30 for a drive into classic Blair Witch territory. However Andy Wills’ faith was well justified as we found a beautiful ground with a cracking little pavilion and a friendly welcome. Any side who suggest retiring at 25 is fine by us.

After having the honour of being present at the grand opening of the new toilet block (which had previously been sneakily christened by several of the Cavaliers) we took to the field. Assisted by a slow pitch we bowled very well, backed up by some excellent fielding, and after great opening from AB and Kev the Millers looked in a bit of trouble. Normally the first change brings an increase in the run rate and although a few boundaries started to come Robin managed to eke out three wickets and by the halfway point the Millers were in real trouble – five down with only 30 on the board. Only Al took a bit of a beating, coming on just as the Millers opening bat and no 6 started to hit out, and AB’s wicket maiden finished their innings on 86-6. A magnificent performance that even we couldn’t fail to chase…?

Well, you would think. If the wicket was slow for Millers it felt like being in a bunker for us. We didn’t manage a single boundary and our top scorer Jules (16) actually ran every one of our first 45 runs. Nobody looked like getting runs, Jules and AB were both run out trying to up the rate, and even the gamble of sending in Si as pinch hitter failed when he was out second ball. We managed to muster just 58-4 in reply after some tidy bowling.

Still, it was getting dark and there was a great barbecue. And a long journey home…. which we look forward to repeating.
