VP's head back to winning ways

A beautiful summers day in Bakewell saw our promotion chasing VP XI complete a return to form and maintain pressure on the leagues top two.

Following the skippers very helpful morning instructions, most of us arrived early for a bit of keepy up and play "spot the cut bit" on a lush green square. The notable exception to this was Tom (Tom) He found it well hard to locate the correct village!

Bully won the toss. DANIEL was apparently the correct call.

Benji bowled a very good opening spell to their batsmen ( I'd say openers, but they really were the only batsmen) He beat the edge on numerous occasions, but much to the disgust of our Roma Slovak representative, didn't hit the stumps.

A steady start for them was punctuated only by Danny failing to lay a paw on a caught and bowled opportunity. Given what was to follow, this may have been the safest option! Welman also graced us with his presence, but appeared to have left his radar in Baslow along with his Sat Nav.
 

The introduction of our spin twins Waif and White initially stemmed the flow of runs, and then brought us wickets. A 120 run opening partnership had us looking at chasing well over 200, but excellent spells by White (3-33) and our new bowling coach Butler,  (4-15) saw us peg them back to 166-8 at tea.

VP’s Winning Run Halted

On Saturday the VP’s XI entertained a Baslow side that were struggling at the lower end
of the table. The league table and our recent form suggested that if we could maintain the
high standards of recent weeks, we would have every chance of extending our winning streak to four.

The vibe was good in the changing room prior to the start, this was largely as a result of the introduction of Alex Clayton who was making his debut for the VP’S XI. Waif was certain he had seen Alex before and had several celebrity look-a-like candidates within just a few minutes. Bull spoke calmly and with confidence and asked for much of the same during a brief team talk. Waif, who was really enjoying browsing through the look-a-like candidates on his phone, so much so that he had to show Alex a couple of the best photos mid team talk. After a short discussion, some good banter, and song or two (proclaimers - I would walk 500 miles)  it was decided that Alex had fitted in well and was rewarded with the immediate nickname of Elvis.

VP’s XI ‘Scorched Earth’ Policy secures victory over Hollinsend.

The VP XI continued its march up the table after a third victory in a row in the Y&D League.  After losing the toss we found ourselves batting first on the windy, high altitude plains of Frechville.  Much research suggests that high-altitude winds created at this level of the troposphere represent an untapped energy source that is larger than the world’s current energy needs. However, the concept of Kitenergy clearly hasn’t caught on yet at Hollinsend, with the best source of energy still being the biogas from the bags of dog s**t tied to the outer perimeter fence surrounding the ground.

Our openers made a steady start until a procession of wickets taken by ‘chucker’ Hill and co. left us sitting at 73 for 4.  Bully and Wellman proceeded to add 45 for the sixth wicket, with the highlight being a superb captains knock of 61 off 69 balls by Bully.   Ably supported by the tail and the entertaining batting of Bambi on Ice (aka Bruce) we grafted to a total of 179 all out from our full allocation of 46 overs.

COLLEGIATE TRIUMPH IN TOP TABLE CLASH

Collegiate maintained winning ways after breaking Calver’s unbeaten record. This week was a much more experienced team compared to last week’s winning team against Ashford. The veteran’s consisted of Hickman, Schofield, Stewart, Miller, Pearson, Longley, Watson and the return of Butler. They were joined by the youthful Willis, Wellman and Walmsley (first game back after the unacceptable absence due to examinations).

Collegiate thump Ashford in complete victory

After a disappointing result last time out, Collegiate were intent on getting back to winning ways. The side was made up of the experienced names of Stewart, Hickman, Layer, Scholfield, Miller and Varley, coupled with the young guns of Wellman, Willis, Priestley, White and Turner.

Newly Promoted Medics

Intro

On Saturday the VP’s XI entertained the newly promoted Medics at Abbeydale. Thankfully I arrived on time which gave everyone plenty of time to hammer me for failing to write last week’s match report but as T pointed out, no one ever died wishing they’d done more match reports and to be fair, Saturday’s match provided a far greater amount of fodder.

Our Men

With T back from gardening leave (and upping the team diversity quotient) and Entrepreneur Doc Varley back from whatever entrepreneurs do when they’re not playing we settled down to the job in hand.

Two completely independent impartial umpires in Club Vice Chairman, former team captain, occasional current player and all round club stalwart Sealy and Club Secretary, 5th team stalwart, occasional VP player touring umpire and player Picko. When asked if he’d been able to get any advice from any top quality international umpires for his stint, Picko had replied “no, just Ketts”.

Anyway, tossing into a stiff headwind Bully eventually retrieved the coin from Millhouses Park and announced that it was heads. By that time he’s forgotten what the oppo had called so it was decided they’d won and chose to bat.

Bowling and Fielding

Anyway Wellard opened the bowling and cranked up the pace into a following wind and bowled a miserly opening spell without reward.

VPs win derby

The VPXI made the trip to local rivals Totley on Saturday, eager to move on from two successive defeats.  Captain bull returned, and there were also first starts for Benji and former captain Seal.  
 
Toss won, and Totley were inserted. Wellman and Watson became another new opening partnership with the ball, and bowled economically.  There was very little in the pitch, the faster they tried to bowl, the slower it was! Wellman picked up 2 quick wickets, a good catch by Bully who initially parried it (via his thigh) and caught the rebound & a half tracker that hit half way up.  Nothing else happened of note, so they were both replaced by longers (sporting a pedometer on his waist band for a 'corporate challenge' and the snake. 1 each for these two, and Totley were 44-4. 
 
Worryingly, we let things drift again; dropped catches and easy runs meant Totley crept towards 100. However, the returning Benji broke the partnership and with the returning Wellman, 92-4 became 99-8. A late flurry from their skipper meant Totley posted 138.  In fairness, this was 40 more than they should have got. We must get into the habit of finishing teams off when we have them on the ropes.  3 each for Watson and Wellman, 2 for Pearson and Pedo man (not to be confused with paedo man).
 
Average tea, we were hoping for a curried shepherds pie like last year, but got sandwiches.

2 out of 2 for VPs

After a winning start to the season, the VPs continued their assault on league 2 with a classy performance against a strong Baslow team. Bolstered by the return of two ex-legends of the game, Parrsy (fresh from his annual trip to Decathalon) and our overseas (Wales and Wolverhampton) Sir General Vice Admiral Layer OBE VC H&M B&Q (not that he bangs on about it).

Unusually, Skipper lost the toss (currently 50:50, what are the chances) and we were inserted. It was raining. Bob and Ashy dutifully opened up, building a steady platform and with the 50 up, Bob fell after a hard graft. Enter Stewie, fresh of the back of last weeks match winning 60 odd and from ball 1 struck the ball well. The partnership built, quick running, hitting the bad ball, hitting the ex collegiate batsman in the face and the occasional 6, it was a joy to watch. Stewart broke his bat and with Ash's usual grinning response to some average sledging, the Baslow spirit. Banter was good in the dressing room mainly thanks to Parr reminding us of his music hall variety act. It was still raining. Ashy reached his superb ton with time running out and Stewie ended on 93 off 90 balls. A few with chronic pad rash yet again but 239-1, no one was complaining, a tough target in any standard of cricket. Still raining.

VP's off to winning start

The VPXI begun the campaign with a home game at HSBC against a youthful Hollinsend side.  After 3 weeks of great weather, it was inevitable that come Saturday, we would be met with wind, rain and cold.....and the weather did not disappoint.

New captain Bulk won the toss (already better than Sealy?) and inserted Hollinsend.  A motivational speech before the game was given (and shared with Daniel Longley talking to his Dad about what they are having for tea next Thursday) with the boys in no doubt a) what was expected of them and b) where to go for chicken nuggets.  In future, kids banned from our changing rooms for a whole host of reasons.

Wellhard and Bull opened the bowling.  Wellman found little change from the pitch, but bowled an extremely economical 7 over spell.  Bull was a little rusty; his only real contribution was bouncing one of the openers and putting him on the floor (you don't lose it).  Club record signing, Ricky V.W, replaced Bull with the hope he would not suffer second season syndrome and he did not disappoint.  He took 3 quick wickets and from 36-0, Hollinsend became 54-3.  Longy Longy Longy took over from Wellman and he was quickly into his transparent ways.  Champagne moment undoubtedly putting someone out at cow (joint decision, led by the captain) with the very next ball the batsman hitting it straight to a surprised Rookey who took a simple catch.
