I feel we are very very close to a 1st XI that is about to click and go on a winning run.
We now have players with an appetite for 1st XI cricket, that want to play week in week out.
Gotham were inserted and were bowled out for 167, outstanding performances from Z & Laughton. Rees also bagged a brace as he is now looking to secure his place with the 1st XI.
Feeling very confident, the top 4 showed no patience whatsoever, and we tumbled to 29 for 4 off 8!
However, Laughton & Collington put on 67 for the next wicket in fine style. The only other contributor with the bat was Milner with a very good 16.
We must remember to build the innings guys, patience is the key.
I am looking forward to next week at Caythorpe, where I expect to pick up 20 points. If that is the case, then I predict (if the other results go the way I think they will) that we will leapfrog a couple of teams (E Leake & Gotham) and be 6th in the league.
