Match report Sunday 1 Aug v Crazies Hill Away


Rain never felt far away, however as in previous weeks the sun gods were looking after us and it was dry and sunny as the game went on


Whitchurch batted first on a wet wicket that resembled an unrolled outfield!

Good knocks by Sid and a 50 from Scooby saw Whitchurch to 147 for 6 from the 35 overs on a wicket that played only slight better than the afore mentioned description 

Crazies hill reply was reasonably solid and when they lost wickets, they did not lose them in 2s but consolidated each time and this meant they were always in the game even when slightly behind the run rate

WCC bowled well - Francis and Tommo in particular were hard to get away but we didn’t have the best day in the field dropping several catches, the exception being Dave Hartley pouching a skyer -well done Dave - good catch that!

In the final over all 3 results were possible but their batter who got 50 saw them through off the penultimate ball of the innings with 2 wickets  left.

A lovely oppo are Crazies Hill - a very nice beer or 3 was had in the Horns pub afterwards 

Thoughts for the day - Catches win Matches!!!




PS Ronnie hope your hand is feeling better
