Just a quick one to say thank’s to everyone who turned up today and took part In what was a great afternoon of cricket.
The shortened version of events are as follows –
Team Cutler batted first with Griffin and Morris opening. On 13 Griffin knocked one up to the juggler known as Jolly who on the 7th attempt finally managed to hold on to the ball. A great knock of 20 from the in-form Morgan junior and a 6 ball 17 from the attacking Gill before a captain’s knock of 28 from Alistair. A few more from Hawkins and Morris before team Cutler were all out for 123. Two wickets apiece for Paul Robbins and Morgan Senior with one each from Howes, Jolly and Cook.
Team Jolly then batted second with openers Farquhar and Peirson. Jake was firing on all cylinders and quickly retired on 30 whilst partner Peirson retired hurt with a bad back on 12. Unfortunately there was an injury on the field and Alistair was taken to hospital with what has been confirmed as a dislocated and fractured finger. Our best wishes for a speedy recovery are sent to Ali from everyone in the club. PJ was his usual steady self knocking the ball around with ease and finished on an unbeaten 26. Morgan Senior wasn’t around for very long before knocking one up In the air and straight into the arms of a waiting Farquhar. Delight for Morgan junior as he was the bowler. “It’s great to get my dad out”, was a quote from Will. Cook scored 2 whilst Howes didn’t manage that many as the Hawk struck with the first of his two wickets. Ben Cook came back to have another go as Paul Robbins had taken Alistair to the hospital. ( Thank’s for that Paul, you are a star ). Rain stopped play for around 30 minutes before we all returned to the pitch and Ben and PJ steered team Jolly to a victory.
It was an excellent afternoon of cricket played In a very sporting manner, firm but fair and enjoyed by everyone. Well that’s how I remember how everything happened.
