By Danny Caro, July 21, 2014

Master blaster Akiva Lieberman produced an astonishing display of hitting to destroy the Wilmslow attack almost single-handedly in the Greater Manchester Cricket League.

Ben Haim's had more clubs than Jack Nicklaus, but so what?

By Danny Caro, July 18, 2014

I almost fell off my chair when I heard that Tal Ben Haim was returning to England in a playing capacity. No joke.

Norstar London Raiders have been one of the most progressive MGBSFL clubs in recent years and I think there is little danger of second season syndrome, even with a change of management.

Rob Richman faces an incredibly tough task as L'Orange look to improve on an unbelievable season – one in which they fell agonisingly short of their first major piece of silverware.
