Match report vs Branksome
28 July 08@ Wenvoe (Skipper and report Muff)
A day of glorious sunshine ended the moment we drove to wenvoe.
The pitch was wet but as the sky cleared we were hopeful of
getting a game in. the oppo turned up and it was a bit of
a shock to see a bunch of fit, young athletic looking blokes
wearing matching shirts making their way to the dressing room.
We got under way and it became apparent very quickly that
we were in for a major ass kicking as the left handed opener
took us apart from the off, one shot inparticular almost killing
the umpire as it sped to the boundry. the oppo spotted that
we were shite and gave the lefty out run-out to the only highlight
of our night, a superb throw and direct hit from rog, when
he had made his ground by about 3 feet! I won't bore you with
any figures, all 8 overs completed got spanked and i've never
been more glad when the monsoon hit wenvoe calling an end
to proceedings before we were seriuosly embarressed.
We retired to the pub for some sausage and chips which the
oppo devoured with relish (and curry sauce) leaving the casz
to fight over the chips and bread.(Now Iknow how the oppo
feel when we come to town!). All in all a pretty miserable
evening but at least we didnt have to chase the ball for 20
