TPCC IIs vs Fair Oak IVs away
Tough week getting a team together for Saturday’s fixture and ended up only taking 8. Lost the toss and we were put into the field with the opposition looking to make the most of our limited numbers. All I can say is that we bowled and fielded like we had 11 in the field! Matt B, Dave D, George P all took a pair and Dave W and Craig J a single wicket each. Even more impressive was our fielding – we worked our socks off for 40 overs getting 3 catches and a run out (highlight was a ‘diving’ one handed catch by Dave D at deep fine leg). Fair Oak finished on 229-9 and gave us plenty of compliments for our fielding performance.
Won’t go in to too much detail regards the batting as only George P made an impact with the bat (opening for a change). We batted for 20 overs and were all out for 65.
Credit to our team and we had some fun in the match and plenty of ‘game time’. Special thanks to Craig J who answered our cry for help during the week and am sure will be wearing the Tichborne colours again soon.
