The seconds struggled against Torquay and the first innings bore a close resemblance to the home fixture for he first halfof the match. Once again we were put in to bat and once again collapsed. From 10 for 3 Suggy and Gavlar rallied things. Gav was hit on the thumb first ball from Nadar which didn’t help. Suggy looked set but holed out to mid on upon the introduction of the wily campaigner, Terry King. At Dartington Chris Worth and Mick batted through 12 overs to get us to a reasonably competitive total. The score was just over 100 when Mick joined Chris with 12 overs to go once more. Surely they couldn’t repeat their heroics, could they? The pair saw off Nadar who’d collared 6 wickets and were half way there when Mick was trapped in front of his stumps, much to his chagrin. Worthy again finished not out and looks well worth being elevated in the batting order.
We were never really in it when TQ batted. Their opener was dropped at slip off Carter’s first over and good batting took them home by 7 wickets. Jono bowled one opener. DC finally nabbed the other one, Hunt, and got a telling off from the umpire (who happened to be the batsmen’s dad) for over-celebrating. Western ran well between the wickets, though Goordy ran out his partner with a smart piece of work.
