Amersham - Mon, 07/14/2014 - 20:32
Amersham CC are hosting the Lashings All Stars on 23rd July, at Shardeloes. Lashings have announced their team for the fixture today. The All Stars team boasts 383 test caps between them, and the only player not to have played test cricket has a reputation as one of the best one day cricketers around.

Leading the way is Herschelle Gibbs, the South African opening bat who scored over 6000 test match runs in 90 tests for the Springboks. Joining him in the star studded batting line up is Wasim Jaffer, who is the leading run scorer in Indian first class cricket, and who played 31 tests for his country. Representing England are spinners John Emburey and Chris Schofield, all rounder and former England one day captain Adam Hollioake, and Devon Malcolm, one of England's quickest ever bowlers who famously took 9-57 against South Africa in 1994. Australia's Ian Harvey was one of the most successful overseas players in county cricket, and an integral part of his country's one day side for many years, while Corey Collymore is part of the impressive history of Caribbean fast bowling. Completing the side is one of the best spinners ever to have played cricket, Pakistan's Saqlain Mushtaq.

This formidable side will take on Amersham CC's 1st XI at 2.30pm on Wednesday 23rd July in one of the most appealing games of club cricket the area has seen for many years.

All are welcome to come along for the afternoon's entertainments. Tickets will be available on the gate for the game, priced £5, There will be a barbeque, bar, and other entertainments available. If you would like to join the VIP lunch before the game, at a cost of £65, please contact Joe Shuttle ( as soon as possible.

A413 Chalfonts Area Diesel Spil

Amersham - Sun, 07/13/2014 - 09:18



Be VERY careful along the London bound stretch of the A413. A coach has spilled a large amount of diesel on the round, Thames Valley Police are there warning motorists of the hazard and even taking it gently, I was finding the steering going scarily light on the roundabouts.


Current policy is to resurface after a fuel spill, so be prepared for road closures along that stretch today.
