Match Report vs Tintern 30 June 2013 @ Tintern Abbey (Skipper Cheese, report Shakey)

Tintern looked resplendent in the early afternoon sun as elsewhere in South Wales the rain came down. Following a cursory inspection of the green thing resembling the pitch and comments about it looking flatter than normal we had a bat having lost the toss.
After a slow start Tesh and Stevo started to accumulate although the pitch was showing signs of misbehaving at the Abbey end. Stevo was the first to go, bowled off his legs and bat and arm and arse or whatever it was - anyway the ball was incredibly slow and he watched it trickle onto his stumps and a bail fell off. Captain cheese and tesh did well for the next few overs before tesh was also bowled for 15 with the score at 21. Some indiscrete shots and a devilish pitch saw the middle order perish abruptly to leave us wobbling at 46-6.

The skipper had batted with a little luck thus far (you needed it) but huge application as the innings fell apart around him. He just needed a little support. Goff gave some resistance with a couple of biffs for four before he too fell to a stumping and winkie also did his bit to drag us back to 84-7. But then it all went horribly wrong again and the cheese was stumped last man out for a very creditable 31.

Our bowling figures are nowhere to be seen which may be a good thing as they didn't take long to get the runs although I do remember shakes taking a calm catch at point that was destined for the boundary :-)

The highlight of the day was unwinding with chips and beer and listening to Stevo moan about the lousy service in the pub. But he did enlighten us with 'spaff' which became our word for the day!
