This week's match has fallen foul of the weather. Persistent rain has made the ground unplayable.
Out next fixture will be at home against Chorley Hospitals on Wednesday 29th May.
Wednesday 8th May. Outcasts clinched a last ball thriller at home to Albion on Wednesday evening. Chasing 115 in 20 overs, Outcasts cruised through their first dozen overs, but once Neil Flanagan came on to bowl runs started to become a little more difficult to come by. Outcasts were once again guilty of ignoring too many comfortable singles and this nearly cost them dearly. Shahid's innings of 53 was crucial and he was ably backed up at the other end after Scot and Paul got us off to a good chase. A nervous final over culminating in the last ball winner was a fitting end to an evenly contested match. The match report is now available.
Thursday 2nd May. Last Thursday was a beautiful evening at Ashley C.C. Outcasts opened their season in high spirits. 12th man Shahid stepped into Steve Ramsden's spot who had to withdraw from playing earlier in the day and Shahid promptly obliged with bat and ball. However, Outcasts struggled with taking their chances and having batted first on a very green strip made 96 for 3 from their 20 overs. The Reynolds opening pair proved to be un-movable and laid a solid platform to setup a victory with the best part of 3 overs left. The match report is now available

Outcasts Cricket Club originates from the early 1970s with a group of enthusiastic cricket-minded colleagues of the former Greater Manchester County Council Planning Department.
Following the abolition of the County Council this social group were distributed far and wide across Greater Manchester primarily, but stuck together in solidarity and defiance of the Thatcher mechanics of destruction to maintain its cricketing roots.
The emphasis of the cricket is purely for an enjoyable social evening, but there is always the element of competition and a desire to perform well and competitively. .
