Cricket: Bray win a close encounter
Posted on March 22, 2010
An exciting game which saw acting skipper Andy Clarkie hit 4 6's in an over, ensuring that he reached the 50 milestone yet again this season. Useful contributions from Aaron Cottrell and Lester Piggott ensured that the Bray jockeyed to a decent but not unachievable total.
An interesting opening spell from Steve Davis supported by Ossie Osborne (certainly an unlikely opening partnership) helped put the Bray on top. However, wayward bowling from Messrs. Scholes, Jones and Bunks FM seemed to turn the initiative back to Bourne End.
However the opening partnership returned to steady the ship, with Ossie picking up the final wicket in his last over.
Stonewall Spinks was on the field of play but had a day to forget. After getting very little sleep, getting out for a golden duck and failing to stop a ball all day, he was seen texting his girlfriend during the drinks break. This has caused him to be fined an unprecedented amount by his skipper, and caused him to be suspended.
