Match Report: 6th May, 6:00PM, Manland, Rothampstead Park

Season Opener

Result: Lost by 6 wickets

Crabtree 107 -3 (18 overs)
Manland 111 – 4 (16 overs)

Season opener, after 4 months of indoor nets what would it be like out in the middle. Only 6 at the warm up game 2 days before, was this a sign of confidence?  

A good positive start from Nick T 26no, Ally R 24 and Ian B 15 with plenty of aggressive running, put up 67 off 11 . Thereafter tighter bowling especially from Wedd & Tizzard at the end restricted us to 107. Despite tidy early bowling and wickets (for Ben D, Neil D, Nick T and Ian B) the Wedd / Tizzard combo saw Manland home with 2 overs to spare. Several examples of the worst of Crabtree catching, no names mentioned, but you know who you are !. Then it was off to the Amble Inn to plot our revenge before election fever took over.

Well done to Ben for captaining, it just wasn’t his night either on the pitch or in the ballot box.
