Venue: Ashley

Toss won by:Barrow

Batted First:Ashley

Match Report

Well, how and where do we start to describe this debacle? League leaders Barrow made the trek East to 3rd placed Ashley on a warm sunny day and a good-looking pitch. With plenty of batting points already amassed by the visitors this season it was a surprise to see Barrow win the toss and invite the home side to bat. But the decision proved to be a good one as Ashley had a nightmare day at the office with none of the side reaching 18 and three batsmen getting ducks.  Only Griffiths and Coates made double figures. Williams did most of the damage ripping out 3 of the top four, with Dwyer completing the job with 4-11 taking care of the late order and a flaccid tail.

 

A total of 69 was never going to challenge a side scoring 170 most weeks and so it proved but not before the unlucky Woods had 2 good chances spilled and then watched Bell exploit his good fortune to score a fine 52*.

 

Combined with the late arrival of a very poor tea, the whole day was something of a shambles and one that should be soonest forgotten. On the positive side, a new tea lady has been sourced!!!!
