We’ve got the winners of the cricket T-shirt competition we ran about a month ago.
We ran the competition late and we’re announcing the winners late. That’s pretty much the way things work round here.
At the weekend we were 45 minutes late meeting our friend and it was only a one hour journey. Fortunately, he managed to be two hours late, despite setting off at the same time as me. ‘”I had to stop for a sleep,” he said.
Anyway, here are the winners.
- Thomas Bastin
- Sam Blackledge
- Simon Daffen
- Murray Nixon
- Sue Nolan
You should receive your T-shirts by Friday.
We were supposed to tell you about this competition a few weeks ago, but basically forgot about it.
Philosophy Football have launched a philosophy cricket range starting with the words of CB Fry.
CB Fry captained Sussex and England; played football for Southampton, Portsmouth and England; equalled the world record for the long jump; was one of the great cricket writers; stood for Parliament; and could jump backwards onto a mantlepiece from a standing start. He was also offerered the throne of Albania. Quite a man.
The T-shirt is available from www.philosophyfootball.com but there are five to win in what Philosophy Football had branded their ‘Lord’s Test competition’ thinking that we might have put this up sooner. It’s open until the 31st of July though, so you can still enter.
Name the bowler who took 8 for 43 at the 1981 Headingley Ashes Test

Take a look at our current range of cricket T-shirts
Football supporters love wearing their team’s shirt to show their allegiance. The same thing’s never really happened with cricket shirts.
This is largely because the majority of one-day shirts look like football shirts and cricket supporters don’t generally want to look like football supporters – not even a bit.
It’s not a superiority thing; it’s an inferiority thing. Football shirts and one-day cricket shirts are inferior to all normal clothes. Even duffel coats.
But maybe you still want a cricket-related T-shirt; a nice one; one that isn’t hideous. FEAR NOT.
