North Nibley

‘One of the best touring sides we’ve played’ was the verdict of one long-standing Cavalier, and while he may have been referring to North Nibley’s friendliness rather than their ability, there is little doubt that the men from south Gloucestershire deserved their win.

The camber on the pitch allied with the rather gusty onshore breeze made it look very much like a bowler’s day, and we put the Nibblers in to bat.
