Match Report – Buckley CC v Maeshafn CC
Tuesday 10th June 2008
Team: Gresty, Fagan, Scarratt, Longhurst, Townsend, Jones Aled, Bartlam, Rhun Jones, Richard Jones, Davies, Pugh
Maeshafn lost by 4 wickets. Maeshafn 91 for 6, Buckley 93 for 2
Enjoyable game, with Buckley telling us beforehand that they had got a mix of players this year to make it more competitive. There were quite a few younger players in the team, but they were still very good.
Fagan and Gresty got a 50 partnership for the opening wicket, taking 11 overs to do it in, and everyone else went in and had a good go as well. reaching 91 was a real milestone for us, as we have never got so high in the league when opening the batting first. Rhun Jones finished the innings in style, hitting a ball high over the bowler that nearly went for 6.
Wasn't enough to stop Buckley winning, but it took them 15 overs to get there. Great bowling by Townsend and Scarratt kept the figures down, and Rhun Jones unfortunately missed getting two catches thanks to drops from someone in the field. Fagan disposed of the opening batsman when one run was needed with a caught and bowled, but by then it was a little too late!
Suspect the return leg at Nercwys will not be quite so successful.

Think of all the fun we could have with a bowling machine....!
