Good afternoon all
The first loss in 8 games came yesterday against Bures at Home.
This is the end of the current spell for Captain Superted, who has had a good run but new
matchday captain will be appointed for the forthcoming game away to Nacton next Sunday.
The scores and tables are attached.
We have new joint leaders - Harris and Jeppo
The players scoring table is still topped by Bevan but some more points gained from
players below yesterday
Summary of the game yesterday.
It was a very damp pitch after 2 days of solid rain but Andy and Bev did a good job getting
it all ready.
Superted won the toss and we fielded first.
Bures scored 181/8 off 35 overs
Jeppo with 3 wickets, Cal and Superted with 2 wickets and Johnny Armour (Harry's Brother)
bowled rather quick and got first wicket for LCC - caught by Harry Armour!
I took a hat-trick of catches but dropped Jack Crace on 98 and appear to have a broken
finger (yet TBC) for my efforts. This proved to be very costly as went on to score 111.
LCC - 177/7 - off 35 overs - lost by 4 runs
I opened the batting with Tris as Supeterted wanted a quick start. Quick fire 31 from me.
Tris went on to get 51, Johnny Armour with 39.
Good couple of partnerships with Tris & Johhny and then some rapid running between the
wickets with Johnny and KP.
Wickets fell and 2 runouts in 2 overs and everyone looking for the last boundary but it
wasn't to be.
Tris with another HUGE 6 straight into the garages in Rowan's Way
My 3 catches in a game - first hat-trick of catches this season
The Armour brothers combining for a wicket - and no Harry, you cannot have Johnnys points!
The pizza at the Hare was tasty after the game!
We are on the road again to Nacton on Sunday with a new match day skipper to get us
back to winning ways.
Final note, I will get details out of the transfer window and 2nd half changes sent out
after next week's update.
Have a good week.
