    Oporto Tour 2023

    October 22nd, 2023

    A jolly crew of Sou’Westers assembled at Oporto Cricket and Lawn Tennis Club on Thursday 18th May. The planning had taken place over several years, another victim of covid, but Stewart Peet’s unswerving dedication ensured this became our 10th overseas tour. It was only a pity that, in his 90th year, Stewart could not be with us in person. We certainly felt his spirit throughout.

    Western Tour 2023

    September 17th, 2023

    As the 2023 Western Tour began, media attention was focussed on the exceptional heat being experienced in many places around the world. Parts of the United States, Mexico, Southern Europe, and China recorded temperatures over 50 degrees Centigrade, over 40 was widespread, and one report asserted that the average temperature world-wide in the month of July was higher than for at least 100,000 years (though how this was established was not made clear). There were numerous wildfires and dramatic rescues of tourists from holiday hotels, most notably in Rhodes.

    April 27th, 2021
    By mutual agreement with Oporto C. C. and Coimbra Knights the Oporto tour matches have reluctantly been cancelled. The Covid 19 travel restrictions, quarantine, testing and associated accommodation issues involved have all conspired against us.

    Captain’s Report

    January 6th, 2021

    Nerves were frayed as we feared that the 2020 tour would be scuppered by the Covid 19 pandemic. However, the rumours that club cricket might be reprieved were confirmed about a fortnight before the due date. Thankfully the majority of our opponents were able to host us and, with a couple of last minute replacements at Crowcombe and the Somerset Stragglers, the tour started with a new fixture at Morebath as planned.
