Kirdford v Fernhurst Cricket Club Sunday XI on Sun 29 May 2011 at 14:30
Fernhurst Cricket Club Won by 6 wickets

Match report irdford had cancelled earlier in the season so we didnt know till the morning whether the match was on...with a reassuring phonecall from their skipper, the Green Army hit the road and straight to the Forresters pub for a prematch warm up...After winning another toss Fernhurst put Kirdford in to bat on a carpet of a wicket.

It became apparent pretty quickly that Bristow was in the mood for wickets and with some super tight bowling from the other end by Paul Predente Kirdford were in trouble on 21 for 4......Skipper was relentless and kept the 2 of them on the whole innings....Although Paul was unlucky not to take a wicket his figures of 28 runs off 16 overs told its own story.....However Bristows blistering pace, swing and use of the seam meant the wickets kept falling and with a one handed catch above Tom Hamptons head Kirdford were all out for 76....James finishing on a club record 10 for 45 off 16....The first time in 20 years plus that a Fernhurst bowler had taken all the wickets.......

Kirdford it has to be said were not impressed and insisted that we go in to bat for 20 minutes as tea wasnt ready.....In situations like this there is only one thing you can do as a skipper...Send in Paul Heath and Mogodon who managed to put 18 runs on anyway before a wild swing of his wand by the wizard meant Tom had to see out 5 balls before the break.....!

With Jamie, Skip and James coming in after the result was in the bag after westie and Skip hitting 18 runs in 2 overs.....Fitting that Bristow should hit the winning runs and with a spring in our steps and a whistle on our lips The Green Army headed home......Victorious once again after a blip against the BBC the week before (no match report as we were rubbish!)......Thats 4 out of 5 wins for the season.

A proud day to be a Captain as nothing went wrong....excellent fielding, superb bowling and clever batting.....You cant ask for more out of your janners....

Green Sunday Brigade Captain.........

PS Bristow Katy will let me adopt you now so pack yer bags Son yer moving in
