The Oval: London's other ground | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo

The Oval: London's other ground | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo

... Last year, I got the opportunity to visit two iconic cricket grounds - Lord's and the Kennington Oval. One common theme I noticed in my interactions with several cricket fans was that Lord's is the pre-eminent ground, while The Oval is the "other ground" in London.

Both the grounds are similar, yet vastly different. In the opulent borough of Marylebone, unassumingly stands among several residential buildings Lord's, perhaps the most famous ground in world cricket. Across town, The Oval is also located in what is currently an upmarket neighbourhood - Kennington. However, while Marylebone has always been a posh area, when The Oval was founded in the mid-1800s, Kennington was not even a part of London. In fact for large parts of its history up until the 1970s, the area was a largely working-class neighbourhood - the iconic gasometers visible in all TV coverage of The Oval are testament to this. It is perhaps these differences in the local social circumstances that lead to the grounds giving off vastly different vibes.

FoDL : Monday 15 February: The Maverick Mountaineer

Events | Friends of Durning Library

Monday 15 February:  The Maverick Mountaineer   

Local author Robert Wainwright will inspire us with tales from his new book on the maverick mountaineer, chemist, inventor George Finch (father of the actor Peter Finch). In 1922 Australian born George Ingle Finch successfully reached the highest point of Everest, a record held for 30 years, and saved his climbing companion.  Despite or perhaps because of Finch’s unconventional character and his obsession with oxygen for climbing, he was removed from Mallory’s tragic 1924 attempt on Everest.

6.45 for 7.00pm at the Durning Library.
Light refreshments.
Everyone welcome.
No admission charge, but a £2 donation towards costs is invited.

... In 1879, local rival team Druids were without a ground and several of their players spent the season with Oswestry, so that for the first international match between Wales and England on 18 January 1879, 8 Oswestry players, including Davies, were selected to play for Wales. The match was played at a snow-covered Kennington Oval, London in atrocious weather conditions with the team captains agreeing to play only 30 minutes in each half. England scored twice in the first half, with  Davies scoring his country’s first international goal, in the 47th minute. Wales lost 2-1. ...
