A much needed win, MOTM goes to Dicky Drinkwater for carrying his bat and seeing the victory home.
Captain Calamity is awarded to Danny Collington for many reasons:
Turning up late, looking at the non stricking batsman when he is fielding at short leg because he was confused as to which end the ball was coming from!!! (TWICE!!!!!), being fast asleep in the clubhouse when he was supposed to be striding out the the middle as a wicket had fallen and he was in, when he finally made it to the middle he was bowled first ball and last but not least dropping 2 easy catches off my bowling. Much improvements needed Dan!
Special thanks to Conor Pearson & Paul Orgill for a late call up, well done.
So to the game, 133 for 8 were all Southwell could muster, surely a win was guaranteed! But in fairness to Southwell, they made it tricky, tight lines especially from our U15 player Ollie, made the task feel double the required score at times. A flurry of Fiskerton wickets made the game hang in the balance for a while, but thanks to Dicky Drinkwater carrying his bat with an unbeaten 53* and Rob Turner keeping a cool head. The score in the end somewhat flattered us, at 137-6.
Lets build and move forward gentleman.
