Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday is all about a guy with holes in his hands - and yesterday was about a second XI with holes in their hands. We managed to turn lots of nones into ones, and ones into fours. At one point Buxworth looked like surpassing last year's mammoth score, but eventually we managed to restrict them. Unfortunately the batting was pitiful. Just three players reached double figures, and 5 out of the top 6 got ducks (despite what it says in the scorebook!

To top it all the changing room was full of discarded kit, including one of Harry Bold's batting gloves and Russ Wild's whites. Bloody kids!

On the plus side, the firsts won. It was an unseasonally warm day which made the beer all the more welcome, Man United got a late goal to virtually clinch the title, and Kebablicious were up to their usual standard.

Charlesworth next week - here's hoping for a better performance!
