great game, well batted and well bowled. 12 months ago this feature wouldn’t have gone ahead, its down to you guys being prepared to come out of your comfort zone and play potentially stronger sides that has seen the team progress the way it has. i feel like a proud dad at the moment;-) albeit one with a mickey mouse hand at the moment.
we scored 88 of 20 for 6 they went on to win but we took a fair few wickets along the (sorry dont have score book with me)
not sure how close it was at the end but it was a win, win situation from the start for us as a team. bowling from alex and harry, ben and stephen all excellent. richard warner maxed out again and took a great catch behind the stumps. richard stephenson plays better with a female audience i see and fielding was ‘tighter than elephant mans headband’ (apart from my catching obviously).
i would like to thank everyone who turned out and contributed to a great night notably,
chris – for sorting everything out at the end of the game so i could go
jon – for getting me to wallsgrave – very much appreciated
harry- for coming
ben- for unexpectedly re-joining
alex- for a great debut
andy- for showing stephen the ropes with scoring
stephen- for being prepared to open
martin- for a superb 4 down the ground
the richards – for great batting !
on the injury front
i’ve sliced the webbing between 3rd and 4th fingers of my left hand down 3/4 of an inch and its been stitched back together and i’ve got it in a sling. I can’t drive with it, plus my cars stuck on campus anyhow at the moment. so im stuck like this until some movement returns, the nerves weren’t severed, but i have hand like mickey mouses at the moment. i’ll also need to get the stitches removed in 5-6 days.
be intouch soon.
