Thriplow v Saracens Cricket Club 1st XI on Sun 14 Jul 2013 at 2pm
Saracens Cricket Club Lost by 111 runs

Match report Another glorious day for the trip to Thriplow with a depleted side with 7 regulars out against a team with 5 first teamers. Thanks to Shane Gough for drafting in 3 friends from the pub team.

Vinny as skipper negotiated with the oppo skipper for 40 overs no limit for bowlers and for sarries to field first.

On a roadlike pitch with plenty of demons A good opening spell by Babs 2-24 from 12 kept the oppo in check and for him this was only soured by the big cheer from the bar as DRS decided the first test. A australian walking -never . No DRS here. He was backed up by Rich G 1-32 and Wrong'Un 2-31 who had his best spell of the season, Bun 2-59 and Michael Webber 1-28. Rich G had to leave the field after he tried to stop the ball with his mouth cutting his lip but the beer and the cigarette on the side proved a good pain killer and he returned looking a bit like he had gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson.

Two champagne moments in the field with two outstanding catches from Rob Leroche and Babs and we managed to restrict Thriplow to 195.

Sarries began there reply with Vinny and Ducky adding 37 for the first wicket before vinny was caught off a slower ball for 27. from then it was tough going losing wickets at regular intervals with only Paul Hoeg (20) and Bun (10 not out) reaching double figures. We were all out for 84.
Despite the loss to a far superior side an enjoyable afternoon was had and thanks again to the 3 debutants. Thanks to squibby for coming over to umpire and not have any alem dar moments.

W Award = Matt 'Fanny' Ayre (Didn't play, forgot to pass on keepers gear, apparently being the only person in the team every week!)
