Match Report

 

ASHLEY GET NIL POINTS FOR FIELDING

 

Holmes Chapel’s smart new covers appeared to have been on the wicket since the start of the season, it was almost white and skipper Murray opted to bat first. His cheery disposition soon gave way to a bit of a scowl as he sat in the scorebox, third out with the score only 12. Once again Robbo rescued us with the help of Pengo, Uncle Fester and Jacko. With 2 overs left the tailenders were about to get out the long handle and push onto 170, but we declared.

 

As usual the home team provided an excellent tea, and as we walked out to field we looked at the four hand pumps on the bar with anticipation. Two quick wickets and we were very chirpy, but Hewitt and Rebbeck added 98, thanks to five dropped catches and two missed run outs. We got back into the game thanks to some straight bowling, 6 wickets fell for 14 runs, then another 10 runs later. The last man had to face the final ball of the match but it passed by the off stump and the game was drawn. Our generosity in the field had cost us 11 points.
