Brook End Badgers 30/05/2003

After recent rain it was good to finally play a game. 

Brook End batted first and Coaley fielded well to restrict them to 91 runs, despite four dropped catches. David Rendall(2), Craig Hewlett and John Hobson being the guilty parties. David Rendall later redeemed himself by demonstrating the value of a well padded stomach as an absorbent catching pad. The Captain is rumoured to have offered a finders fee! Andy Curry stopped a certain four with his shinbone, the sound of which reverberated all round the ground. Ouch! Not to be outdone John Hobson repeated the feat with his calf muscle. Damien Ashman took two wickets at the end to leave himself on a hat-trick.

The Coaley innings started slowly and at one time were 26 for 5. Enter Craig Hewlett and Captain Supreme Bryan Chivers. Together they took the score to 92 with the winning run coming from a leg bye. A certain four was stopped by Craig, not the best way to strength test Gun and Moore boxes! I could cry just thinking about it. Quote from Bryan ‘I wondered when he was going to move.’

Chiv’s XI 06/06/2003

The evening started with a close inspection of Craig’s bruised thigh (see previous match report). 

Coaley batted first and were subjected to some excellent bowling and fielding from Chiv’s XI with Bryan at his athletic best behind the stumps. Chucker Rymer bemused the opposition with his delayed action release. Adrian (the famous rugby referee) identified one as a no-ball and awarded a time-out followed by a good try. Andy Curry reached double figures scoring 11 runs. Mike Wilson made 10 and is now offering master classes. Did he get the hump or has he always got a camel?

With Bryan captaining his skittles team Adrian(butterfingers) Mather played wicket keeper for Coaley. He did make one spectacular stumping, unfortunately without the ball! Coaley once again demonstrated their relay technique for getting the ball back from the boundary! Despite spirited bowling and fielding Chiv’s XI were able to get the runs they needed and so Coaley Suffered their first defeat of the season. Was it the excellent selection of beers with which Bryan plied us?

North Nibley 13/06/2003

North Nibley batted first and notched up a respectable score. Adrian took a wicket (clean bowled).

Coaley batted with spirit but could not keep up with the asking rate and suffered their second defeat of the season.

More details later when I can get hold of the score book.
