Match Report

 

Stroll in the park for Parks

 

The league leaders visited Ashley for the first time since they joined the Meller Braggins and were made to feel very welcome thanks again to some poor fielding. The first wicket added 47 in 10 overs before Pengo held onto a rasping drive at mid-off. Then it all went pear shaped as Roscoe and Orr batted without any real pressure, they only reason they didnít score 225 plus was they were very tired from all that running between the wickets. They added 147 before Orr was dismissed off the 5th ball of the last over.

 

We lost our customary early wicket but then batted as well as we have done all season. Robbo and Dan were soon scoring at will and the oppos were fretting. They both perished playing across the line but we looked in a great position at 134 for 3 with 10 overs left. A mid order collapse ended our hopes and it was left to Jacko, who earlier pulled a muscle in his back stretching to stop a run, and Burly, who would never do anything to risk a muscle, to play out the last 5 overs.
