1sts lose in the league, but progress in the cup (despite treachery from sub fielder)

A weekend of mixed fortunes for the 1s started with a disappointing 7 wicket defeat away to Doncaster.

Iz departed early doors, bringing Charlie Wall to the crease alongside Blade. Scoring was difficult thanks to some tight bowling, which resulted in the dismissal of Blade and Simmo in consecutive deliveries. 3 down, not many on the board, and overs ticking by was not the ideal start.

Rain Spoils Academy Day!

Academy with an unusual side visited Elsecar again.
Clouds. Lost the toss… Pitch “You’ll be pleased to know Riaz isn’t playing.” Elsecar captain ” Neither is our opener who got 90 odd.” Chuckles 120 all out each then!

Ben down the hill openers some luck. T bowled some good stuff and some rubbish and had no luck either. Ben sent stumps everywhere and 46-1 after 15 overs before the rain came…and came…and came…Colty reminded me about Hull and the Horsemen of the Apocolypse chuckle chuckle!
