The weather got us!

The weather won today. We started an hour late, but managed only 13 overs before a heavy thunderstorm ended proceedings.

Woody and the 🐧 managed a wicket each with catches taken by trigger (not keeping) and the skipper (keeping).

Less said about Boris’ contribution the better 😃

Late surge delivers win for headley

Mid- July. Warm weather, Wimbledon, Tour de France, test matches, headley at home.

Played them first game of season and delivered 66 wides. Chance to show we had improved. Pitch looked good, fast outfield.

Welcomed Callum back to the fold, a guest appearance by Simon White, chairman was in. Batting first!

New opening pair – Callum and Darren. 50 runs for the first wicket. Then some wickets fell, ducky and I steadied the ship before ducky fell to a catch on the long on boundary. Chairman in now. Another run out and we are 120 odd for 4, with 15 over to go. Ross goes early, chairman ploughs on. Simon W digs in. Runs dry up. Go to 48 and set target of 184.

Tea – excellent.

Dog house and skipper open. One opener is on fire. Runs flow, but not up with the rate. Fielding is poor. 4 catches down in the first 6 overs. Darren is being heavily occupied in the field. Turn to Simon and Craig. Some order is restored and they are behind the run rate. More poor fielding lets us down, catches and ground fielding. They rebuild, with 7 to go are unlikely to win and the winning draw is in doubt. Acceleration comes, more poor fielding and some dropped catches bring the total within reach. 2 needed off the last – 4 dot balls from Jacob is a Herculean effort, but to no avail, headley secure victory.

Another defeat. We were 116 for 2 , so 183 was disappointing. Fielding needs work, which is mainly about concentration.

Supporters: Rachel and children, Mrs dog house, Fergusons and grand parents, tash, Gordon’s relatives, Sarah, Joshua, Mrs white, miss white, will and children, nice bloke who comes for a glass of wine.

Tough day, but lots of positives to build on.
