Saracens Cricket Club


Codicote v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 05 May 2013 at 2pm
Saracens Cricket Club Won By 3 Wickets

Match report First game of the season and a glorious day at Codicote. On a belter of a track the home team won the toss and elected to bat. Jeff 'Babs' Allen made a welcome return and claimed a cheeky 4for, Rob 'Woody' Morgan back from the US bowled one over and pulled his groin! Ian 'Randy' Randall made his full debut and Nathan 'Wrong'Un' Hanks picked up a nickname!

On the pitch Babs & Fanny cleaned out the top 6 claiming combined figures of 6 for 13 of 7 over's. Codicote rallied and the young number 4 was especially harsh on Tricky and Wrong'Un on his way to an excellent 65. Slogger caused all sorts of problems with 2 leg side stumping's so quick no one could believe it was a Sunday game. In the end Codicote posted a below par 154.

Fortunately the Saracen batting line up decided to make a game of it, from 86 for 1 we made it to 133 for 3 before eventually losing 7 wickets chasing it down! Tricky got cramp so got out, Fanny smashed a few up front before deciding the side line and beer looked more interesting. Randy smashed 3 glorious 6's and confirmed his number 3 spot for the season, Fud ran himself out securing the W Award and it was eventually left to the injured Woody and resolute Babs to see us home. Good win, good start, good beers!

W Award = Charlie 'Fud' Knighton (bad fielding, ran himself out for a duck)
