Off and running lads. After loosing the toss on a warm afternoon Newark got off to a flying start with both batsman having the rub of the green,( not the words used by Martin Stretch) . Dan 2 and Andy B. 1 were the only sucess in the first 24 overs and with the score at 148 we had thoughts of Thurgarton the week previous. It all changes with the introduction of Arun who takes 4 wickets in a 8 over spell. 2 wickets for Toddy and 1 for Andy L. Newark all out for 187. Great recovery. Needing a solid start we loose Toddy and Max with the score at 25, Rob and Dave then produce a much needed partnership of 80 befor Dave departs after drinks for 32. 83 still required Martin scores 17 befor being bowled the pressure back on. In walks Dan no pressure 31 not out off 21 balls< game over with Rob batting through the innings for 58 not out(m.o.t.m).
Captain Calamity. Arun who gets married in the winter without mentioning it.
9 games played 8 wins great start.
