Versus Cresswell and Co (was Davies Arnold Cooper).

This has always been a grudge match, we whacked them, then they destroyed us two years running. The match was held on a iron hard ground, in the high 80's at Putney and what a game.

Noticeable for its bad temper, firstly our wicket keeper (Irwin) was warned for offering unwanted advice to the batsmen, then things got really bad, disputed decisions, shouting and the general offering of a bit of violence. Yours truly even had to give his esteemed Captain Charlie (that's courage) out lbw, and I wish I could say he took it like a man...

They batted first and scored 158 and we then entered the last over with two wickets left needing 8. We got it!! (Well done Dan). We missed you Mark, did you enjoy the seminar (ha ha)

Fletchster left the following remarks on 10th March 2007

Actually if I remember correctly, The Rhodesian Love machine suggested the batsman might be partial to the odd hand shandy now and then. He in turn offered to remove the RLM (who was keeping's) head, it all settled down and he was bowled next ball. Who says sledging don't work .
