Letter to the editor of the Market Harborough Advertiser about this game published on 7th July: Sir - will you allow me to correct the account of the above match (which appears to have emanated from Kibworth) in your last weeks issue, as it is very misleading and unfair. In the first place the Little Bowden team were not fielding "the whole of the day" as it was raining most of the time and only about three hours cricket could be had and then under most unfavourable circumstances; the grass knee-deep and owing to the wet it was next to impossible to hold the ball. Then "the excellent" batting of Messers Underwood and Austin consisted of giving about 30 chances. The score was also largely increased by "lost ball" which owing to the long grass was called frequently. Might I suggest that, the next time Kibworth CC invite a team to visit them they should provide some shelter and have the grass mown.

Letter to the editor of the Market Harborough Advertiser about this game published on 14th July: Sir - In last weeks Advertiser appearerd a letter in reference to the cricket match Kibworth versus Little Bowden. The committee of Little Bowden CC wish me to write and disclaim any knowledge of the authorship, and at the same time to express their regret at its appearance. Yours Truely - J Sulley, Hon. Sec. Little Bowden CC
