Weather: it turned out lovely.
Ground: splendid ground surrounded by some epic trees and allotments in the distance.
Opposition: not sure really as we were under strict instructions to stay on the other side of the ground!
Overall attitude: high!
Local youth: gits (white flags…)
Standard of match report: far below average! But main points covered . . .

Winner: myself Dan C, caught and bowled. In all fairness it was a great catch! I do believe, however, that it was mainly my little fella who had his best interests at heart . . . as if I were to not have placed my hands in front of the ball my manhood would have certainly taken a turn for the worst!
BH Cresent batted first. They started off slowly but with encouragement from their captain they managed to score 178 for 7 wickets off 42 overs.
Overall our bowling was pretty decent with myself and Ian getting two wickets and one for Dom.
We managed to knock the runs off with ease in just 31 overs. This was mainly down to two great innings by Dom bowled for 50 and Robo not out for 74. Third highest score in the day was from Duncan not out 18.
Game was followed by a lovely little drink in Patcham’s best. Whilst sitting outside the Ladies Mile I learnt of the true integrity of the Greysman – five members on my table turned down a financial bribe to fiddle the winner of the PSM!!!
