Last net session this week (for me at least), before the season starts with pre-season friendlies in a couple of weeks time.
And to be perfectly honest, I can't wait for the season to start.
How pleased am I that I don't have to put myself through another ordeal like I had this week?
I know I am one of life's eternal moaners, and probably one of the most negative characters around, but rest assured, my final net session will not fill me full of confidence for the season ahead.
Having said all that, I just can't wait to get back outside and getting back to enjoying the game that I love so much.
The beauty of village cricket, is that it is just that. Yes, there is a competitive edge (even in our league), but on-field rivalries are all forgotton over a pint after the game.
One of the most competitive sides I have ever played against are East Oxford - a club that have had a bad press over the last few years.
But I find their competitive edge a real challenge, and they are full of genuinely decent players too.
For such a new club, clashes between East Oxford and Minster Lovell have a bit of history about them (not all of them good), but I'd like to think we have a mutual respect for one another.
We've been drawn to play them in an early round of the Osberton Radiators and Centenary Cups, and I, for one, and looking forward to the challenge.
They will be out for revenge for sure after Minster knocked them out in a fantastic semi-final three seasons ago.
With our three teams playing in Divisions 2, 5 and 8 this season, it promises to be interesting for all our sides.
We are in a position where we boast a lot of young players, some of whom I've mentioned before.
I just know that the future of cricket in our little part of west Oxfordshire is looking very rosy, and I can't wait for the season to start.
I'll begin looking at prospects for other clubs in the OCA League from next week, starting with Division 1 and the all-conquering Tetsworth team - Hyron Shallow et al!
