Suffolk Cricket Women and GirlsIn 1743 (that's 33 years before the American Declaration of Independence) the Gentlemen of High Suffolk played a cricket match in Stradbroke.  Yesterday on the 275th anniversary Stradbroke CC played two limited over T20s against Suffolk Cricket Women and Girls.  A historic and democratic result of one game each.

Aldeburgh Carnival tomorrow, when we saw it earlier this century with Lady KRJ who grew up in Hackney she asked Why's it so quiet and where are all the black people?

Waiting in a light rain shower for the medicYesterday's Bury Saints v London Olympians in Thetford was full of incident including starting 45 minutes late because the medic couldn't find the venue.  The refs ended the game early because an injured player on the field couldn't be moved until an ambulance arrived so we're uncertain of the score but certainly an Olympians win.

Ipswich Cardinals 21-14 Norwich DevilsThough it kept trying to rain yesterday for the Ipswich Cardinals v Norwich Devils in Ipswich the real problem was a swirling wind but it didn't stop long passes or seemingly disrupt kicking though both teams had kicks blocked.  A very decent sized crowd for an East Anglian derby made possible by the Devils' return to the league this year.  The Cards won 21-14 despite managing 30 yards in penalties on a single play.  The Cards at home again next weekend to the Essex Spartans.

Perhaps we haven't looked hard enough but in twenty years never seen anyone in the Christian Science reading rooms in Fore Street Framlingham so this doesn't surprise us a lot.
