Match Report vs Cross
Keys 26 June 2011@ Cross Keys (Skipper and report Muff)
What a game, Chris Durnall coming back after his sabatical
hit 134 not out off 85 balls and then John Furnham cleaned
them up with his hostile fast/medium taking 8 for 3 off 4
overs. game over and in the pub by 3 o'clock.
Sorry my alarm has just gone off. Imust have been dreaming.
In reality we turned up only to find a game underway. After
some disscussion it appeared that a league game had been booked
and the oppo had either not known or had forgotten and we
were all in a bit of a pickle. After a team meeting we decided,
somewhat reluctantly, and by no means unanamously, to let
the game which had started to finish and we retired to the
pub to talk bollocks and think of excuses for the wife.
My apologies to all who turned up and were not happy about
not playing but even with the benefit of hindsight i cant
see it was going to be anything other than a shambles.
Thanks to Ash for attempting to get us a game at short notice
after Sudbrook bailed on us (beacause they had a league game!)
We have since have had an apology from Cross Keys for the
mix up and it turns out that there was in fact NO league game
on the weekend with Aberdare, and that they had spoken to
league about the attitude and aggressive nature of the Aberdare
captain and a few of their players towards their team and
ours. Fingers crossed we'll get to play against Cross Keys
in the future.
