Round Five v Bective 28/11/09

There's no way around it ... we woz fumpd! Four thrashings in four grades.

There were excuses - players out etc - but even so, we were bested this weekend. All of which will make victory against the Bective Boys even sweeter when it comes later in the season. Our season doesn't end after one bad day. Pull the caps down to the eyeline, square up those jaws and fix those steely eyes you City Men!

It wasn't all bad news. A great return to form by Peter Mead with a better than a run a ball 75, Al Austin's economic return under fire in seconds, Josh Allen's best outing with the bat in 3rds (and on his birthday) and the continued good form of Tim Hunt in 4ths.

Besides this, we had a very successful BBQ wilst watching the 1sts at No.1 under the lights. Thanks to Chris and Sam Langston for their organisation and work.
