SCC Awards and drinks – 2023

Comrades,  a glorious evening of pizza, awards, pizza, certificates, pizza, pizza, trophy giving, pizza, and some more pizza. All of it delicious, I must say, especially the pizza bit. Once again, The Lyric pub in Soho provided us with an excellent venue for our celebrations and we ate them out of house and home.

Those who received awards for great cricketing prowess and services were:

  • MOST RUNS: Charlie Richards, Vlad the inhaler
  • MOST IMPROVED: Martin Collier, Шахтер
  • MOSY BOWLED WICKETS: Philip Richardson, Yuri

We also had the privilege of awarding the God-father of the SCC, Jontin, with a special award for acting our Captaincy Commissar for ten years, the trophy of the Walrus – a lifetime award that is forever his own. Let’s be honest, a merit that no other could possibly receive! Well done, Jonathan Savitt, bless you Jonty, Huzzah Jontin!

But what of the greatest award that we, the comrades of the SCC can bestow? What of the great samovar of comradelyness, the joyous and magnificent Combramovich Trophy? It is named after Tim Graham, Cobramovich, our fallen, but never forgotten comrade. He knew that the SCC was more than runs, wickets, ruthless competitiveness and so the trophy is for more than results, it is the comrades’ comrade award.

Mullertov, Rob Muller
Cobramovich Trophy 2023

The 2023 season’s comrades’ comrade award, the Cobramovich Trophy goes to Robe Muller, Mullertov!
Congratulations Mullertov, you are a more than worth recipient and provide so much to the team, run scoring, bowling, but knowledge, a special calm, a level head and a warm smile. Congratulations!

Rob was not able to come on the night, but here he is, receiving the trophy from the Jontin, Jonathan Savitt. 


Lord’s Training – An inside view

Nice action
Report from Comrade Commissar ILYEVA LUNCHOUR:

Well thank you comrades or the ones that managed to turn up! There was a much smaller party in the end, Commissar Tim Cobra picking up a puncture on the M25 to add to his car trouble book, which we think might be soon be published, and commissar Phil was AWOL but did present a good excuse [sorry folks! – ed]. But it all worked out with one of the coaches not managing to turn up either (wife having a baby, could forgive him that one). So it ended up being a perfectly sized group unlike “that” cricket ball. I think we all got some wisdom out of the coach and that bowling machine. There certainly was some visible transformations on our batting skills.

Father and Sons

Commissar Marx B did well to bring his sons who kept all of us on our guard with the odd ball flying at us down the alley and even over head. I think they too found some insight with our coach even though they seem to play all summer. They also had fun sending bouncers our way and being told off by the commissar.

Also a big thank you for Rob Muller from the VCC on joining our group. Dan March did also well to make it as he had a show on at 10pm so couldn’t even join us at the Lord’s Bar to have some end of season drinks and light banter (as Mark’s kids were with us)

I probably speak for the gang but our muscles did ache for quite a few days afterwards this must have been the most intense practise we’ve had this season. Also a nice wave goodbye to 2011 season and store away our gear for 2012.
