LIKE A CLOSE SHAVE BUT NOT THAT CLOSE!!!!!

LODSWORTH LAST SUNDA PLAYED AGAINST A VILLAGE LEAGUE SIDE IN WEST CHILTINGTON AND KNEW THAT THEY WERE IN FOR A STERN TEST. HOWEVER WITH THE SIDE BEING ONLY BEATEN ONCE ALL SEASON THEY WERE BRIMIN WITH CONFIDENCE AND KNEW THAT IT WOULD BE A CLOSE AFFAIR.

CAPT HALL AS EVER WON THE TOSS AND AS EVER ELECTED TO BOWL FIRST ON WOT LOOKED A GD PITCH TO BAT ON AND FAST OUTFIELD. AS PER USUAL LONG OPENED UP WITH THE NEW BALL WITH NEWBY MATT AND AS PER USUAL( LIKE OLLY BEIN LATE) MADE IN ROADS INTO THE TOP ORDER.

WITH GD FIELDIN AND TIGHT BOWLING RESTRICTED WEST CHILT TO 35-3. ON CAME HALL GB AND JH WITH THE BALL TO DEMOLISH THE MIDDLE ORDER. BUT A FIGHT BACK FROM THE RABBITS AT 9 10 AND 11 AND SOME SLOPPY OVERTHROWS (HALL THATS U M8!!!) GOT THE VISITORS UP TO 141 ALL OUT.

LODDY BOWLED THE MOST THEY HAVE ALL SEASON IN 42 OVERS HENCE PARTLY TO PP 65 YARD RUN UP DOWN HILL DOWN WIND!!! LOL….

LONG 12 -5 25-2 MATT 6-1-24-0 GB 7-3-13-3 HALL 9-2-27-4 JH 8-2-20-0

CATCHES FROM YOUNG SAM, LONG, GB2, JH PUT A SUPERB RUN OUT FROM GB IN THE COVERS…

WITH A LOVELY TEA AS EVER MADE FROM THE GIRLS SHEILA JILL MARIA AND CO… LODDY THEN WENT OUT TO CHASE THE TARGET DOWN. HALL THOU SPRUNG A BIT OF A SURPRISE TO MOST AND REARRANGED THE BATTING ORDER A BIT TO GIVE PEOPLE A CHANCE.

HOMER SIMPSOM ONCE SAID ‘DOH!!!!’ AND THIS WAS THE CASE AS HALL LOOKED LIKE MAKIN A RARE TACTICAL MISTAKE AS LODDY LOST WICKETS QUICKLY. CARNEY WAS OUT SLASHING TO POINT, JC MISSED A STRAIGHT 1, HICKEY JUST LIKE BOB NUDD HUNG OUT A ROD AND KNICKED 1 TO THE KEEPER.

LODDY IN TRUBLE AT 30-3. LONG THEN HIT A CAMEO QUIK FIRE 18 IN 9 BALLS B4 GOIN TO A CATCH AT COVER AND GB PUT 1 DOWN GULLYS THROAT. NOW IT WAS 45-5 AND LODDY LOOKING AT THEIR 2ND LOSS OF THE SEASON…… HOWEVER A TWIST IN THE TALE WAS TO HAPPEN TO SAVE HALLS BACON.

YOUNG SAM HUNG AROUND FOR A WHILE WITH THE DEPENDABLE JH UNTIL BEING BOWLED, HUNTERS M8 WENT WITHOUT TRUBLING THE SCORERS FOR 0. 58-7. COMETH THE HOUR COMETH THE 2 OLD BOYS WHO HAVE MADE 100 PARTNERSHIPS B4 HAND BUT WHEN IT MATTERED MOST CUD THEY DO IT NOW.

HOUGHTON AND KING TURNED THE GAME AROUND WITH FANCI FOOTWORK, DEFT TOUCHES AND DAMN RIGHT SLOGGING TO BE UNTRUBLED AND SEE THE BOYS HOME. WITH 7 OVERS TO SPARE AND SPARE CAPT HALLS BLUSHES. A GREAT EFFORT FROM THE GRUESOME 2SOME!! WELL DONE LADS.

CARNEY 1 CLIFFORD 1 LONG 18 HICKEY 1 GB 18 SAM 7 HUNTERS M8 0 KING 27NO HOUGHTON 59NO.

WITH ANOTHER WIN UNDER OUR BELTS THATS 9 NOW…. SURLEY WE WILL GET TO DOUBLE FIGURES BY THE END OF THE SEASON.

MEN OF THE MATCH KING AND HOUGHTON FOR A PARTNERSHIP OF 86 UNBEATEN TO WIN THE GAME .

LONGY………….
