Match Report

1st XI v Frenchay (A)

Saturday, 17th May 2014
West of England Premier League
Bristol Somerset

Elvis had left the Valley.Chew were Trainspotting at Frenchay CC to get their cricket fix.


Mike "Dasher" Denning: [narrating] Choose life. Choose cricket. Choose a club. Choose a team. Choose 'tails' to get inserted on a damp pitch on a stinking hot day, choose wicket keepers, fast bowlers, spin bowlers, all-rounders and openers. Choose good technique, low risk, and a solid opening partnership. Choose to collapse in mayhem at 15 overs. Choose to rebuild with Gary and #Thompsonin. Choose 185 for 9 in 50. Choose cheese and ham sandwiches. Choose a cup of tea in the pavilion of friendly Frenchay. Choose to bowl and wonder who the hell is hitting you all over the park Choose fielding on that oval watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing 100s, stuffing 4s and 6s into the bog. Choose defeat at the end of it all, slumped in a miserable changing room, nothing more than an embarrassment to the future and past of CMCC. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? Chew chose not to choose life. Chew chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got cricket?

Charlie Thompson chose life and starred with 47 not out, 2 for 20 and a rousing speech at the end.

Next week, Elvis returns and the real CMCC 1st XI are at home to Taunton Chews to Win!
