Match Report: 26th July, 6:00PM, Final CC, Greenwood Park

Fine result for the On/Off match

Result: Win by 60 runs

The infamous On/Off match. Wrong date, lose players, can oppo change date?, yes, back on, Yeah.


Final CC chose to field, then chose to play on our side by dropping numerous catches and conceding 39 runs as extras. Meanwhile the Crabtree batsmen contributed to a massive total of 172 for 9.

Chasing a large score was always going to be very difficult. We had 10 fit and accurate bowlers supported by good catching. A win was never in doubt. 

However, the evening needs to be remembered for (a) Jason de Klerk for a 200 mile, 5 hour ROUND trip to play, (b) Nick Threlfall for playing out (OK missing the ball) a maiden, (c) Richard Bailey's speed over the ground, so much so his trousers blew down, (d) Jake Dearman being so stressed about running his Dad out that he asked me to bowl his Dad first and (e) the Gareth Lloyd "I am normally very good at getting dates right".
