Second Team start with a win

by Ian Burrows 0 Comments

Having won the toss, Trojans III elected to bat first. Ian Burrows opened
the bowling with his trademark swinging full deliveries and was soon
rewarded in the 3rd over with a wicket. A 2nd batsman succumbed to Burrows’
bowling in the 5th over with the score on 11. Ian completed a 6 over spell
with 5 maidens, 2 wickets and 1 run to his name! After a nervy first over
Jacob Samuels bowled consistently getting his first Travellers wicket in
his final over. Unfortunately he had to be taken off in his last over
having bowled a 2nd waist high no ball (7.5-0-27-1). Peter Ince and Steve
Noton kept up the pressure with tempting full deliveries finishing with
3-17 and 2-25 respectively. More wickets should have fallen during this mid
innings spell with a handful of catches missed in the field. Only 2 of the
batsmen got going for Trojans with the highest score being 24 not out.
Shane Smith (5-0-12-0) And Kev Sims (1.3-0-4-1) bowled well with Smith
juggling and holding on to a catch to take the last wicket off Sims’
bowling. Trojans all out for 92.

Clive Nicholls and Simon Allen opened the batting with Allen making steady
progress with a selection of 4s and 2s. Nicholls failed to settle and was
bowled for 2 runs in the 8th over. Leigh Sign got off to a positive start
on his debut but it was unfortunately short lived as he was bowled for 1
run. Next up Sims, aiming to pick up where he finished off last season with
a strong batting performance… out for 0 lbw! Graham Baker and Allen
steadied the ship and bowling changes saw a steady stream of runs including
a number of 4s on the slow Lordshill outfield. Allen was eventually out for
40, Baker made 31 not out and Shane Smith (4 not out) hit the winning runs
in the 24th over.

Excellent win.
