Saxton (6) v Long Marston (1)

Saturday 22nd April 2017, Match Report by Gareth Bottomley

First day of the season started with Saxton having an amazing 32 players available for the 2 teams, so the firsts travelled to Marston with high hopes. Of course not everyone can turn up at 12.30 as requested with Denno giving some lame excuse about Diesel and Toddy spending 20 minutes driving round Butt Hedge.

Welcome back to Mr Hewer as a great addition to the squad. Business as normal with the skipper losing the toss and being asked to bat on what was forecast as a cold day. Having donned a full set of very fetching thermals if I do say so myself getting ready for the arctic conditions promised GB soon regretted this decision losing about 10 pounds in weight sweating his proverbials off.

At 10 for 2 bowling first looked like a good decision with CB playing over the top of a straight one and Toddy still looking for the one that bowled him. Enter Mr Hills, I would like to say that Steve and I put on a chanceless 80 odd for the 3rd wicket but that would be slightly inaccurate as I was dropped at least 6 times and Steve twice. I fell to a lofted drive to long off. Enter Ian to the crease for about 6 balls and then Nick looking to carry on last seasons form. Disaster then with Steve pulling a hammy going for a quick second, I wish him a quick recovery we need him fit. Nick and Dan chipped in with good runs to leave us 189 all out. The quote of the innings had to come from Josh who came off saying he thought he had smashed the delivery he faced only for it to loop back to the bowler!

So surely after tea we couldn't drop as many catches as Marston but I couldn't be more wrong. The first six overs from Josh and Oliver were tight with Josh beating the bat several times with no joy only picking up one wicket of the number three. Dan Hewer followed Oliver bowling twelve good overs taking 4 for 35 ish. Ian followed Josh also taking 4 wickets including the Marston opener who batted really well for 70 plus, but again gave a few chances we should have taken. Oliver finished the job with the last wicket. So all in all 8 bowled 1 stumping 1 LBW.

Positive thoughts for next week.

Batting in partnerships was excellent if we keep scoring 190 we will win more than we lose. Batters keep thinking to yourselves if you get in make it count.

Ground fielding was excellent, it was sharp and the throwing was overall pretty good.

We all have to concentrate for 45 overs in the field and want the ball to come to us.

A special thank you must go to Dave Walmsley who turned out at very short notice to field in place of Steve.

Bring on week 2
