Friday 31 July the Clubs cricket team played their annual, one off, match against Peter Clayton’s York Club eleven,
Peter won the Toss and elected to bat!
Our bowling however needs a little bit of work on, (to many wides) just a tweak here and there perhaps!
Nigel was very economical, Tommy (Lillie) Pullin took out the middle stump! Jason and Barry bowled wicket to wicket, but never picked up a wicket, but the pick of our bowlers was Michael Palmer who’s fielding was a bit special as well.
Hopefully Peter and Hanna will be available next year!
Onto the batting.
Chasing 180 was always going to be a big ask, we started with a bang Luke Wade hitting 25 not out in no time at all, as did his big brother Gary 25 not out. Theyy were able supported by Loz (single-man), Barry and Nigel. For the first time ever we got over 150 runs, well done boys!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our loyal supporters, you really are a lovely Barmy Army.
Thanks to Matthew and Chelsea for playing and Jason for playing when he shouldn’t have.
Malcolm (the gloves) Swain
PS Next year new format still in July but a Saturday starting at 4PM
