Match report No Score Book = No Details

Apologies for the delayed 3rd team match report this week* but extensive travel has meant that the scipper's attention has been elsewhere this week.

Suffice to say we came up against a strong Datchet side last week who were relegated from Division 4 last year. Whilst the Top order picked itself with Joe and Grant in the side, the Datchet bowlers then comprehensively unpicked us. Sight-screens (are they on order yet, Baz?) will help as we come up against more accurate and more pacey bowlers but so will application and conviction...a little belief will go a long way and with every player capable of scoring centuries, I expect this to be the one blemish on what remains a potentially great season.

Bowling-wise, the scip regrets not mixing it up earlier as Hiren took two-fer and Cokers looked dangerous with every ball later on...still, despite dropping four chances we took some pride (and points) ensuring Datchet achieved the 132 for victory four down.

To Kew this week (early start for the thugball enthusiasts) and hopefully back to winning ways. We're 4th having played two sides above us...not bad for a few chancers from Watford*

* come to think of it, do our 1st, 2nd and 4th team captains know how to use a computer?
** name the film, win a prize
