More cup winners from the 1950s this time Ernie Hogg and Syd Gooden with their Charlton Cup trophies, possibly from 1953, at Charlton.
Eydon beat Chipping Warden in the final,in which Syd scored 22 out of the 70 scored. He was particularly proud of hitting 'Ponto' Tomlin - a very good bowler - for a 6. Ernie Hogg (on the left of the photo) appears in Club records from 1950, being on the Selection, then General Committees for the next 7 years. He was a bower, leading the First XI averages with 22 wickets for 121 runs in 1951, but scored a crucial 14 runs off the last over of the game in 1953 to win the Banbury Advertiser Cup . (IB023)
The same year that Ernie was top of the First XI bowling figures, Sid topped the batting, with a total of 390 runs. Syd and Ernie may have been brothers in law as when Syd moved to Eydon he lodged with Teddy (Edwin) Hogg, at Home Farm, High Street. Teddy Hogg was another cricketer, captain to the Second XI, and father to Phyllis Elizabeth Hogg who Syd married in 1955. They moved into Sheen Cottage in Blacksmiths Lane, but sadly the marriage didn't work out and Syd later married Peter Strong's widow, Carol, and moving to Long Buckby.
