It was soggy, grey and frustrating weekend…even for those sides which did get out on the field. Perhaps the best performance came from the new covers which worked a treat in the top square! Otherwise, we salute Graham Fisher’s 6-29 in the Thirds defeat at Bentley Heath, two handy knocks from under-14 Archie Stephens and our excellent girls’ team for reaching the finals of their under-13 and under-15 competitions. But this week the award goes to opener James Wareham who battled to a well-made half-century in the Fifths game against Bentley Heath IIs and ensured a creditable draw for his team. His excellent tumbling catch rounded off a very good day for James.
Every week, the chairman will select the player who has produced the most extraordinary cricketing performance of the weekend programme. It won’t necessarily be the highest scorer nor the bowler who has the best figures but someone who has produced that little bit of magic to win a game or turn a match around. We hope his or her team-mates join the celebration by paying for their drinks at the bar.
