Graffham v Fernhurst Cricket Club Sunday XI on Sun 08 May 2011 at 14:30
Fernhurst Cricket Club Won by 12 runs

Match report Three out of Three....With skipper away Jamie West stepped up to the breach with Joshy Allen as Vice Skip....One problem they had both been out the night before with Brad who was heading home......

Fernhurst went into bat first and started quickly with Melrose and Lewis scoring freely, paul following up after....However a middle order collapse meant a broken footed Harry Lambert had to step up(excuse the Pun) and fire off a quickfire 50.....At tea FCC were 197 on the board and another great score on the board.

Now there are times in a skippers life (Mid 30s) when you have to do grown up things IE Christenings, weddings, babys etc and you can grab 5 minutes to check on your boys because you cant play :( Sad face.....

I observed several things from the sidelines.....Ryan bowling spin ! Harry hopping between overs because of a broken foot ! Jamie and Josh giggling due to a hangover ! and a Vicar heading off early as he had an evening service!....

Now I have to admit when FCC were on 144 for 4 with 18 overs left I had upmost faith in the Sunday Brigade pulling something out the bag !!!....It was left to the master, the legend, the bloke named after an 80s soap...thats right it was Melroses Place taking 5 wickets and seeing off Graffham.....! 3 out of 3 wins....How do we do it....I dont care and bring on the men from the BBC Bush...GREEN ARMY...Night Night Skipper
