Andrew Flintoff turned around the Second Ashes Test of the 2005 series with two wickets in one over.

Davidd and I are 57 years old this month and during those years we have watched some great sporting events. Today, we would like to continue our series of posts where we recall our memories of those events featuring some of our greatest heroes. We have lived through England winning the World Cup (we were a little young, though), Muhammad Ali’s greatest fights, Stoke City winning the League Cup and Botham’s Ashes. Some great times and even more great memories which we hope to share with you during the coming months. Today we would like to share our memories off

Hello, my name is Bimbo. I am Great Uncle to all the bears even though I am not really a Renault Bear myself. It is a bit of an honorary title because I am a very old bear. In fact, I was bought for The Bearkeeper by his Grandparents on the day that he was born many years ago. I can remember many things that have happened in my lifetime and these are the things I write about in my column. I will tell you of things that happened not just to The Bearkeeper and me, but things I can remember from television, news or anything else that comes into my head

Congratulations England!

Everyone here at Jammy Toast would like to congratulate the England Cricket Team for winning the series in South Africa. It has been a great performance from individuals and the team as a whole. They are now in the position of leading the series 2-0 with only one match to play. However, they have surpassed themselves in the third test beating South Africa by seven wickets in only three days having bowled the opposition out for only 83 runs in the second innings. Stuart Broad produced figures of 6 – 17 including one session of 5 – 1 in 31 balls.

What a great day we have had here at Jammy Toast with England winning the Ashes in spectacular fashion over Australia and even Tranmere Rovers have started their National League life with a win. England wrapped up the Ashes on the third morning of the fourth test at Trent Bridge. The hosts took Australia’s three remaining second-innings wickets in 39 minutes to win by an innings and 78 runs. Ben Stokes took the day’s first wicket to finish with 6-36 before Mark Wood clinched the victory by bowling Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Lyon.

Jammy Toast In Mourning

Jammy Toast is in the deepest mourning today for the loss of the second test against Australia. We don’t mind losing test matches – well we do really but that’s another story – but to be destroyed in the way we were during this test was a national disgrace! To be bowled out for 103 in 37 overs on a flat pitch is nothing short of awful, or “unacceptable” as Captain Alastair Cook rightly said. To add insult to injury, Australia batsman Steve Smith claimed that the pitch was even slower today than it had been earlier in the match. However, the real crime was that England’s batsmen did not even make Australia’s bowlers work hard for their wickets – they just gave them away.

The Barmy-Army arrives for the fourth day.

We all sat around today to watch day four of the first Test Match and we were treated to a great day of cricket which saw England take a 1-0 lead. Australia started the day needing 412 to win, and looked to be making a decent effort towards it at 97-1 just before lunch. That is when the tide started to turn, first David Warner was trapped LBW on the stroke of the interval, and four further wickets fell for the addition of just 25 runs taking the game away from Australia.
