Second but not out-classed

We came second to a B&P side bolstered by a few players thanks to Witheridge calling off their match.

One that got away, well perhaps not, but 7 dropped catches did not help the cause. We had them 8 down by the end, if we had held on to a few things could have been different.

Aaron was the pick of the bowlers, but all of them chipped in. Flash batted and almost carried his bat, Will Carr struck some lusty blows and Jeremy was starting to look good when he missed a straight one. On another day... well, who knows, but we have to start holding catches!

No play despite some sunshine

Unfortunately the cold and wet weather in the days leading up to the weekend did not allow the pitch and car-park to recover from the damage done last week, so we were forced to call of the game. Fingers crossed for better weather over the next few weeks.

Damp start to the season

Only one innings was possible at Hayne on a rather dampafternoon Kelseymen  No 5 Callum Mitchell enjoyed himself striking 10 6sand 7 4s in an unbeaten 104. The Cheriton bowlers did their best , Bates andGuscott taking a brace each with Bates also taking two good catches, but alltoo often (it was either 9 or 10 times) the ball fell between fielders. Poorfield placing by the Captain was the general opinion.

Rain set in at tea to prevent any further play, so we will never know if Foan,Gordon, Blight and Co were going to get anywhere near  the 202 they neededto win..... All this only meant we got back to the Half Moon just in time tosee Stokes disappear for 4 consecutive 6s to lose the T20 final.

A big thank you to Kelseymen for coming down and to Will and Steve Birley for their contribution and support both on and off the field.

Let's hope that next week is a little drier under-foot.
