Just as the 4ths League season was derailed by matters beyond their control, so with the Cup Final.
Last week 120 for 1 with 18 overs left and then it rained. This week with the venue switched to a seaming swinging Hathersage we were bowled out for 79 by Calver. Some so called battists do need to work on their defensive technique this winter (it is hardly the first time we have been cheaply skittled) well as the Calver lads bowled.
After an excellent tea which we were hardly in the mood to appreciate, we ran it close but not quite close enough. Lobber and Angry (2 each) and Markodad (4fer)saw Calver struggle over the line at 80 for 8 to win their second final in 4 consecutive appearances.
Thanks to the many who came down to support…at least you didn’t see us bat.
