On a rain threatened day Fisko were out to put right the defeat against Wilson's knowing nothing but a 20 point victory would be enough. Nuthall openly admitting they had a weak side elected to bat and Fisko walked into the field with Kev and the returning skipper starting us off. Kev bowled tightly going for just 3 runs from his first 6 overs, 4 of them being maidens. It was decided that although it was tight wickets were required to get us the points needed. Dan Collo had a go without success and Sharpy's 2 for 20, including star man Marsh for 4. Was this the start of the wickets. . . . . Yes. Hero Drinkwater then came on and bowled a fantastic spell of 10 overs taking 7 for 31 including a hat trick. Collo Snr was again off form and took just 1 for 32 off 7 overs. The team were all on a high after hero Drinks' fine display finishing off Nuthall for a defendable 140 on a variable performing pitch.
Max Danby position in the 1st XI looks solid by again saving the blushes of the opening pair by scoring a mature 39. His maiden 50 is looking not too far away. Kev Rees (28) and Hedgie (33*) finished off the innings winning by 4 wickets.
Drinkwater's fine bowling display has won him MOM this week but his batting has won him the Captain Calamity after leaving a straight one bowling him for 0. We are thinking of getting some one to one coaching for Drinks by Jake Fish.
A good 20 pointer and back into second after Wilson's shock defeat to Newark where they fell to 44 all out, Newark winning by 9 wickets. Fisko visit Newark on Saturday knowing that another victory would keep us in the promotion chasing top two . . . . COME ON LADS
