Rain Song CC Thirds

Last year Fantasy Bob reported his correspondence with the Secretary of Rain Songs CC and how following the success of the club's First XI it had found itself able to field a Second XI.  FB is pleased to learn from recent contact that the club continues to prosper to the extent that they are now fielding a Third XI.

As with the other 2 teams this side shows the intoxicating mix of youth and experience that is the club's hallmark. Their only problem is finding pitches to fulfil their fixtures. They are all waterlogged.

Here is the Rain Songs CC Third XI. Not in batting order. Given the weather so far this season FB will not be surprised if they manage to field a Fourth XI shortly.

Fire and Rain - James Taylor
Rainy Days and Mondays - The Carpenters
Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 - Bob Dylan
I'll Do My Cryin' in the Rain - The Everly Brothers
Rainy Day People - Gordon Lightfoot
Who'll Stop the Rain? - Creedence Clearwater Revival
Rain - Status Quo
I Set Fire to the Rain - Adele
Rhythm of the Rain - The Cascades
Why Does it Always Rain on Me? - Travis
Let it Rain - Eric Clapton
There is talk of a junior section with Itsy Bitzy Spider being approached to act as convenor.

The club continues to be thankful to its Honorary President Mr Murray who set the standard with the ever wonderful Down Came The Rain. A cricketers' version is in preparation.


  1. Thanks for that FB - Sophie Marceau at 9am on a grey Scottish morning is almost too much.............

    1. Many thanks - there are not many who would prefer FB to Sophie Marceau, at any time of day.
