Notable incidents: Too many to mention. Fletch and Rodbert pathetically out for ducks. Hewitt out for 1.

We were 3 wickets for 2 at one point. Magnificent stand by Simon and Neil Clark who carried his bat.

Neil's previous best being 24, he would have been virile in bed that night, were it not for his bad back. And he bowled as well

14 sept 2011. Looking again at this match, the catches drops look all wrong. Sadly the book doesnt have the info and as there were only 4 wickets taken, i think its best to let it be blank. for the record, what was there was:

catches Ben Shaw 8, Tony Fletcher 6, Craig Brown 4, Simon Mustafa 4, Andy Shilling 1

drops Tony Fletcher 5, Ben Shaw 4, Simon Mustafa 2, Craig Brown 1

The reprot also mentions Neil bolwed, but as their book wasnt copied, we shall never know..

This is a really vile artificial strip on a bumpy bit of land, in the middle of one of the most expensive parts of West London. St Margarets. home to half the BBC and Pete Townshend
