A convincing and clinical win away at Farndon brings us our 2nd win of the season. Having won the toss we elected to bowl first, a decision I am pleased to say proved to be a prudent one. Andy Laughton kept things extremely tight at one end with figs of 1 for 13 off 6.3, whilst Ali Hall mopped up at the other end. Ali Hall's final figures being 6 for 22 off 8, with all 6 of his victims being bowled, this was an impressive bowling performance to say the least. Ali kept it full and allowed the pitch to aid his desire to take wickets. Steve Collington turned his arm over for the first time this season taking a couple of wickets and the the remaining bowlers Beecroft, Davey & Laughton kept things extremely tight with extremely good economy levels. The fielding was a vast improvement on last week and this showed as we bowled out the opposition for just 83 runs.
Chasing down the 83 runs got off to a shakey start as I missed a straight one first ball, and lost my middle stump in the process. The cries of GOLDEN SLUG echoed in my ears as I left the pitch. However with Robbo 53* and Max seeing off the majority of the runs with the help of Rob Bailey the team easily chased the target down in 23 overs.
Man of the match without a shadow of doubt goes to Ali Hall - 6 for 22
Captain Calamity for the 3rd week in a row goes to Jimmy Kirkham - Not because he did anything wrong, the decision was voted for by the team and there reasoning was solely because it has never been awarded to anyone 3 times in a row.
