Well the season has got off to a good start with a welcome win against Warwick Uni staff, notable highlights as we dismissed them for 135 were 4 wickets for Matt Rodgers, 2 for George at the top of the chaotic order and for Stan at the other end of the order with Marc brought on to remove their dangerous quick scoring batsmen and then taking himself off again. Some good fielding and some not so good.
After a delicious tea and bubbly to celebrate Mike’s birthday weekend Canham and Keys set about the chase in rambunctious style with lee displaying his usual splendid array of shots and judgement. Runs came and wickets fell until a partnership by Cox Senior and Gokani Steadied the ship and looked to be cruising to victory until both fell and the jitters arrived again with around 40 to get. George finished the day as he had started it with some fireworks ably supported by Phil “see I can bat too” Humphries seeing us home with plenty of overs to spare and we retired to the Kings for generous portions of cheesy chips.
