The pies have arrived

 

Pengo and I returned from our provisions trip to Hills bakery to discover Ashley were 5 for 2. Weaverhams opening bowler K Douglas doing most of the damage. It looked like the Ashley batsmen were all about to stand up and say Im out, but the experienced Robbo took control. Along with Simmo he repelled the accurate attack for 24 overs before launching into the change bowlers, who had little idea as to how to dismiss him. Fortunately for them Tommo knew exactly what to do and ran him out by 2 feet. He then got of the mark second ball with a huge six but he seemed to get bored and chipped a catch up to mid off. The tail wagged enough to secure one batting point which was a big disappointment considering we had picked up 9 out of 10 in our first two games.

 

Wright and Birtles bowled with great accuracy but it took another experienced O, Jacko to open one end up. Thanks to some great fielding and catching Weaverham wilted and the 10th wicket fell in the 45th over. Ashley retired to the dressing room to celebrate, most of them got stuck into Stella, sorry the Stella, but Jacko munched on his apple, Pengo asked if it was one of Hollands
