Match Report: 3rd May, 6:00PM, Manland, Rothampstead Park

Exciting opener to the season

Result: Match Tied

 Neither the usual May bad weather or lack of Crabtree players would prevent our opening fixture with Manland proceeding. With only 3 days to go we only had 6 cricketers. However, Nick B bringing two more youngsters, Ben D calling on his weekend players and borrowing one from from Manland on the night we were able to fulfil the fixture as 11 v 11. On the usual pudding of a pitch CCC batted first. Alex S lead the way with his maiden 25no ably supported by Bilal 21 and Alex C 16. In reply we kept Manland just below the run rate with consistent bowling and excellent fielding. With the light fading we had to rely a lot on the younger members of the team just to see the ball. Manland need a run a ball off the last two overs and with Weddy at the wicket they were favourites. However, we did not lose our nerve and excellent fielding saw Manland score a bye of the last ball to tie.

12 Cricketers - No opposition

Result: Opposition did not turn up

 Amazingly Phil 'The President' Waters had manged to pull 12 players together. And what happened - Garden Fields had the wrong day. Rather than let a flat wicket, fast outfield and huge crowd go to waste we ran a pairs competition. As I am the reporter the result of which shall be forever lost.
