Match Report: 9th June, 6:00PM, Elstree, Elstree CC

Catch me if you can!

Result: Lost by..a lot!

Having been given the job of Donkey on Tuesday I realised by Thursday where the name came from- the Kit Bag on the back seat of my car does indeed now smell like a Donkey. Anyway, it was an overcast Tuesday evening in Elstree that the keen members of CCC gathered..... so keen we were that 12 turned up. This wasn't to intimidate Elstree though, they were confident of beating us however many we cared to throw at them.

By the end of the 6th over I could see why- 5 superb catches for about a dozen runs put us in trouble (Now I think back, I'm sure I could hear Dads Army being played on the tannoy). Our young pair (Jarvis(19) and Reid) soon knocked the needle off that vinyl before Graham injured himself diving in to save a run. Jonty and Chris H did a great job to at least make a game of it with CCC 82 all out.

Once again, CCC fielded and bowled admirably but it was only a matter of time before Elstree got the runs (14.3 overs). We gallantly offered to continue to bowl out the remaining overs as they had indeed offered to let us bat out their remaining catching practice session.
