Lodsworth vs Fernhurst

Two Games rolled into One

LODSWORTH PLAYED THE VISITORS OF FERNHURST ON SUNDA AT A VERY BLUSTERY REC. IN PREVIOUS YEARS THE TEAMS HAVE BEEN VERY CLOSE IN TERMS OF TALENT BUT IT WASNT THE CASE THIS YEAR THOU. THE VISITORS HAD A YOUTHFUL OUTLOOK WITH 8 OF THE PLAYERS ALL UNDER 18.
LODDY HAD ONLY 1 GUY OVER 40 IN PP PAUL PHILLIPS…..LOL

LODSWORTH WON THE TOSS AND ELECTED TO BOWL FIRST YET AGAIN!!! SO CAPT HALL AS USUAL STARTED WITH LONG UP THE HILL INTO A 40MPH WIND AND PHILLIPS DOWN BREEZE WITH HIS SWING AND MOVEMENT.

AS NORMAL SOME TIGHT BOWLING FROM THE FRONT 2 MADE RUNS HARD TO COME BY, THEN WICKETS TUMBLED AT REGULAR INTERVALS WHEN CLIFFORD HICKEY AND AWS CAME ON FOR CAMEO ROLES. AT 1 POINT THEY WERE 21-7 AND IT WAS UP TO HOUGHTON AND HALL TO WRAP THINGS UP BY TAKEN THE LAST FEW. ALL OUT 48!!!!!

LONG 8-4-10-3 PP 8-3-11-0 CLIFFORD 3-0-6-3 AWS 2-0-6-1 HICKEY 4-0-10-1 HALL 2-0-5-1 JH 4-1-6-1

A NICE TEA FROM THE LOVELY TEGGY (NICE BLUE RIBANDS) THEN IT WAS UP TO PINCHHITTERS AWS AND LONG TO SEE IF THEY COULD WRAP THE VICTORY UP IN QUICK TIME. 30 RUNS CAME OFF THE FIRST 3 OVERS UNTILL LONG HOLED OUT AT COVER, KING CAME IN FOR A KNOCK OF 6 THEN A BIG BIG COLLAPSE WITH BEN RIX AND AWS GOIN AS THE BOWLER TOOK A HAT TRICK.. IT WAS LEFT TO CARNEY AND HICKEY TO SEE LODSWORTH HOME BY 5 WICKETS AND ALL OVER AT 530PM IN 9 OVERS….

CAPT HALL THEN AGREED WITH FERNHURST FOR A BEER MATCH WHICH WAS MORE ENTERTAINING AND COMPETITIVE..

LODSWORTH SCORE OF 83 IN 10 OVERS. GD BATTING BY CLIFFORD CARNEY PP HALL AND JH
FERNHURST SCORE OF 60 IN 10 OVERS. GD BOWLING AND FIELDING BY KING RIX BEN PP AND LONG.

ANDY….. PS. IF FIGURES ARE SLIGHTY OUT SOZ, THERE FROM MEMORY.
