Sunday September 1 2019 v Eton Ramblers.

Won by 2 wickets.

Eton Ramblers 169 all out (J Vitali 3-42, T Pope 2-19). Pilgrims 172-8 (W Smibert 67, J Vitali 36*).

The Eton fixture is always a great way to finish the season, with the ground switched to quaint Teddington this year.

We were put into the field, but the miserly James Vitali (3-42) and Alastair Pusinelli (1-23) got straight to work on putting pressure on the opening batsman.

After countless playing and missing, Vitali managed to find the outside edge of the […]

Won 62 – 17

Pilgrims XV v East India Club
17 November 2019

We arrived at Barn Elms for the game against the East India Club with an unusually balanced team and the luxury of five subs on a cold but cloudless mid-November afternoon. We started brightly and, despite Ed Day-Robinson unfortunately falling victim to what turned out to be a fractured shoulder blade, ran in five first half tries with Alex Cattle particularly dangerous on the right wing. Their sole score of […]

Saturday October 12 2019 v London Business School at Regents Park.

Won 36-0

We met London Business School on a miserably wet day in Regent’s Park. Turgid rugby looked like it was going to be the order of the day as we led 7-0 at half time courtesy of a James Capel try and pinpoint touchline conversion from Ben Nott. It was a classic rearguard effort as we repelled a side with an Argentine international (allegedly), having limited territory and holding them up over the line. However, the game broke up in the second half as LBS’s large squad worked against them, replacing some of […]

Sunday August 18- T20 Tournament at Harrow.

Tournament cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.

Sunday August 11 v Marlborough Blues at Marlborough.

Marlborough Blues 148; Pilgrims 149-4 ( S.Carty 44*). Won by 6 wickets.

A comprehensive win for us. On winning the toss the Blues chose to bat on a slow wicket. Accurate bowling from Ed Bonnell( who also took an exceptional diving catch at midwicket ) and Alistair Pusinelli pegged them to a modest 148. We started off well with a bright 24 from Carline before he was perhaps controversially caught at slip. G. Atkins and T Gibbs carelessly ran themselves out before Seb Carty played something of a pathfinding […]

Friday July 12 v Canford Cygnets at Canford.

Canford Cygnets 300-6 dec; Pilgrims 183.Lost by 117 runs.

As the Canford fixture is the last day of ‘The Week’, we arrived feeling a little fragile especially a windy journey there. Losing the toss and being forced into the field, we were quickly pounced on by a fairly tidy opener who turned out to play for a Division 1 side. With the field back, Humprey Gibbs (feeling fresher than most) and Alistair Pusinelli stemmed the flow, until finally their class batsman was caught on the boundary for 132. We continued to pick up wickets along […]
