The Academy destroyed

Not really sure what happened here and not just because the scorebook doesn’t make sense. S.C.C.C. 174 all out (Walton 45, Root J 50odd) Whiston Parish C.C. 177 for two (their skipper 91 not out). We thought we had enough but realised we were about 16 overs worth short. MASSACRE! Tea mirrored in weather.Toss lost and asked to bat (although we probably would have done anyway) and off to another flyer! Foulkie blazed 20 or so before chopping on and then Rootyson and Danny Walton put on about 90 before Danny ran himself out. Lister went in and having got his fifty got bored and got out. Leiper ran well for two overs before becoming one of three to get caught at third man as we blazed away with wickets in hand. Lister got 22 (bottom hand only but good fun to watch and about time he got some luck!) and Colty finally got off the mark. Walter Rauten…….bach? went first ball on debut (quality c+b to be fair!) and suddenly we were all out. Still thought we had enough so went down for tea.

Not too bad but the chef” still doesn’t know how to cook chips. How hard is it? At least cook until defrosted! Highlight of tea watching Filth filth it for 26 in one over against their pro. Tara lad init Pitch?

We bowled **** (Leiper in particular avoiding the wicket). Nuff said.

Wickets for Walter and and Colty, well batted to their opener and to their captain. Nice bunch of guys at Whiston and deserves a mention after last weeks fiasco.

Champagne moment: Rooty informing Walter he has Y-fronts on his flag Nice bit of something moment: One of their kids asking his dad why they weren’t at the shops buying colouring books (“like what I was told”) Rubbish Home Brew moment: Their innings”
