A river ran through it!
Yes Sunday was an other wild card fixture rescued by Alex our secretary par exalance! It was a journey in to the unknown that was Pullbourgh, and what a pleasant surprise when we came down rectors passage and saw what looked like great facilities with a nite club attached! Marvelous.
After the toss the Pullbourgh went in to bat. A steady start from our opening bowlers messers Hoare and day kept the opposition at bay, keeping runs to a minimum.
As the wickets got picked off slowly they begun to get out the big guns…boom,bash,smash,six’s and fours rained in especially from some kiwi bloke who twats hundreds on a regular basis. After the Stirling efforts of the openers the mighty greys looked on the ropes…change of bowlers in the shape of the dashing R Southon and the whispering deathly blows of I Sewell made the decisive break throughs to get Pullbourgh back on the back foot and all out for under 150 before tea.
And what a substantial tea it was with chips and every thing…yum!
Alas during the interval the heavens opened up and it persisted…so we then persisted to the bar and hoped for a break in the rain. The covers stayed on and on…and on until a glimmer of hope to play but on inspection Alas…a river ran through it.
Hey ho back to pub early doors.
Yours messily Ricky.
