Leisure Semi Final Lumberjack
Lumberjack written by The Chancellor
Chapter 1 Prematch
The short time between the crushing defeat of the Hot Dogs in the semi-final and Leisure’s date with destiny against Dulwich in the penultimate match of the season brought some strange rumblings on the Leisure Basher’s blog.
SCC Pirates vs Jiaozhi
The morning began gloomily, and as 11 Pirates (with no fewer than 7 Bashers: Shit Shoes (c), Swiper, Skid Row, Benched, Paps, Bread and Pope) arrived at the various fields at Jiankang University for the supposed 9am start. The trouble was the opposition was training a two hour bus ride away, and the schedule had changed the game to 2pm... great work skipper!
Pirates vs Tongji Washed Out
The match between the Pirates and Tongji University over the weekend was rained out midway through the Pirates innings.
Pleasure crush the Devils enroute to the final
Pleasure reached the final in style last Sunday as fluffer used his bat and face to score a match-winning 100, with Swoop scooping 4 wickets.
Get Your Hot Doggies…. Aug 27 2017
Coming off a big evening of lizard racing, thong throwing and heavy drinking the leisure team began to arrive at the camel for clash against the Hot Dogs. Hard On was first to arrive at an ungodly 5am, one might say a tad early to attend to his duties as 12th man. So obviously the logical thing to do is head down to Hollywood, stick your cricket kit in the cloak room and bust out some shapes for 2 hours. Well played indeed! Another notable mention for quality pre bus leisure antics goes to Fisty for masquerading as Mayweather v McGregor spectator and collecting a free beer for the bus ride ahead. Leppa arrived fashionably late as he realised he was out of smokes and had to pop out to duty free at Pudong to pick up a carton. Kit, Beers, Pies all loaded and off we go.
Pirates vs HKCC Report
HKCC beat Pirates in an Exciting Finish
The Pirates match against HKCC drew an overwhelming response of players available for the fixture, so the Pirates squad swelled to 13 players, including Bashers: Shit Shoes (c), Bambi, Swiper, Long Dong, Paps, and future Basher, Joshua Williams.
Leapord can’t change its spots!
The big game of will he or won't he.
The morning started with "will Skiddy and Bambi get on the leisure bus to support the boys and sledge the dirty doggies?" - They won't. The after effects of Kakadu Free flow and DJ Beast combined with "alarm not going off" to be blamed. Shit excuse of the year goes to Bambi.
Sir Dick’s Arkham- Pleasure to Play-offs
On the sunny morning, it all began- Skiddy's led the Pleasure lads on the conquest for a place in the Play-offs. With hesitation and sleep in their eyes, the team went to smash those cunning Pudong twats. It seemed like the high tempo was temporarily taken aback by the vegetarian pies. Special mention for Sir Dick who used a click-counter to score the Pudong team while the Bashers were on the field to avoid any rigging of the scorecard.
Aug. 20 Pleasure vs Hangzhou — You’ve been… Thunderstruck!
You know you're in for an unpredictable day when Fruitbox a) turns up sober for a Bashers bus and b) introduces a returning Basher (Pigu) who was almost short enough to look Skiddy in the eye without seeming condescending.
Leisure Lumberjack. Vs Pudong Aug 13
Oh the day had come , the day to play
A game to take us to the brink of history
The finest of men had gathered together
