An emphatic win over Ivybridge on Saturday saw the firsts take maximum points but it was a nail biter as they awaited news from Hatherleigh’s match with Clyst Hydon. Clyst started the day in 2nd place, 4 points ahead of us with Hatherleigh just behind in 4th. We needed to get 4 points more than Clyst on the day.
Mark Andrews and Jono Lloyd got us off to a great start. He may be even slower than me in the field but Mark showed he can still do it with a fine and vital 51. Bertus bashed 80 odd and Captain Marvel declared with 5 down and 241 on the board (I’m just guessing numbers- am awaiting report from H, Mick)
Will Gornall blasted Ivybridge with 5 for 15, Raz picked up 3 as our lads shot them out and gathered around their beer to await news of Clyst. H texted me at Lewdown with the news but said it didn’t look good as Clyst were cruising. Clyst needed only 140 odd to win and collapsed from 91 for 2 to 109 all out. Had money changed hands we wondered on Sunday morning when we read the papers?
