Match Report

1st XI v Old Bristolians Westbury (H)

Saturday, 12th August 2017
West of England Premier League
Bristol & North Somerset

Who said low scoring games were dull? Not me after watching this wicket fest at the Court. Put in on a sticky dog, Chew lost wickets faster than Lockie bummin fags. I was scoring and I had trouble keeping up as wickets tumbled to a combination of good bowling and poor shot selection on a tricky surface. If it wasn't going along the ground it was hitting you in the unmentionables... To be fair Lockie toughed it our for 20 overs eaking out a Boycott-esk 24 runs, and dash did what Dash does coming in middle order. The rest, see me after class. 30 overs and Chew were all out 88 We didn't bother with tea between innings and so the carnage continued. What followed was a master class of top seam bowling by MoM Gary Filer. 10 overs 5 for 9 says it all. The Old B's batsmen wilted under the pressure and collapsed the a pack of cards. Hosier picked up two, Charlie another and it fell to Vile to knock over the tail who had put up some stubborn resistance. All out 64. What a game, and 17 valuable points int he bag for Chew. Points which take them out of the relegation zone. Next up Knowle away. A win there and who knows. ART
