A vision in denim. Our batting MOTM
It's best, I think, to draw a total veil over the details of this game where our team of an elderly man, a boy and others in between were totally out bowled, out batted and out fielded. The weather was typically end of season, cold, drizzly for most of the game and some heavy showers. On the plus side there was the most amazing rainbow.

Also on the plus side, Smutty was our batting MOTM ably assisted by O Shaw (11), these two propelling us past our lowest ever score by some margin.

Also of note, this game marked our last under the guidance of the long serving groundsman, Mick. He has diligently prepared wonderful wickets for us (and his wife excellent teas) over many years and we have rarely done justice to his labours (although the teams waistlines indicate we did do justice to the teas) and I'm sure we all wish him well in the future.
