Milestones 2009

As with 2007 and 2008, the season of 2009 was severely affected by the rain, but whenever there was a 'dry patch' the Cazh made the most of it.

Congratulations to all who reached their milestones in 2009. Smitts reached his 1000th run in style with an unbeaten century at Frampton; Jam made 4500 runs; Dan and Pabs reached 300 wickets and Foxy bowled his 500th over...and in the last over should have claimed his first 5for but a relatively simle catch was put down at mid off - the previous catch that was taken in the same position, going 100 miles an hour faster was taken 'easily'..still always next year!

And a couple who are just a few off...Shakey isn't far off 4000 runs, Jeff and Steveo close to marking their 100th and 250th appearance, and Richie one off 40 career catches.

Just to note the 'stats' shown below don't necessarily show who has the 'best' or 'most' figures in the club, only those milestones which are likely to be met in the forth-coming season. Though looking at some of those mentioned, there had better be a lot of sun (and the odd miracle) in 2010!!

The young recruits from 2007 continue to 'grow', some taking the Casuals eating philosophy very seriously, and might challenge the 'fattest player' title this coming season. The holder, Shakey, looked as if he would be knocked off top spot due to the refurbishment of many of the take aways on City Road, however, he made a strong come back at the end of the season. Pikey's pre-wedding diet 'saved' him from challenging, whilst Goughy, after becoming more 'rounded' due to a back injury, found a new dietary solution - keeping his metabolism high by shouting and swearing loudly throughout each game (plus liking salad also helped).

However, the title was hauled in, like a giant Memorylane sponge cake, by Jonny F who maintained a steady pace, high volume diet, throughout the course of the season. Even scoring 151no on the hottest day of the year, with no shade on or off the field, in his role as captain he engineered that this would not affect his tea by winning the toss and batting first! Congratulations Jam!! [match report]
