Gutted to say the least.
A good start to the day bowling the oppo out for 167, meant we were in with a really good chance of retaining our position within Div E. Phil Z showing just how awkward he can be when bowling stump to stump.
However scoring runs for us today was a real problem.
Losing the first 3 wickets for 8 runs really set the tone I think. Resistance only came from Jimmy Kirkham with a half decent knock of 37 before a suicidal run brought about his demise.
As you already know our competitors to stay in the league Lenton Willoughby, needed to win at Hickling and they did so by just 7 runs I believe. These are the margins that we deal with in this game we love.
Thank you to all the players who played in the 1st XI this year, in what can only be described as a year of change. A change in personnel that is! No less than 34 players have ran out this year as a Saturday 1st XI player, a very difficult task indeed for all concerned.
Thank you all for your efforts and loyalty to Fiskerton CC.
