CricketSkipper Norris was left dazed and confused and later to be found drowning his sorrows as on a damp track the firsts were skittled in dramatic fashion for 37 (yes 37!!). After Ellerton (2 for 7) and Barker (3 for 9) had run through the Olney batting line up, to dismiss them for 99, the Bray were confident of a win at tea. Keeping (5 for 9) and Smith (5 for 13) did all the damage after the break and seven ducks tells its own story!

Norris was heard to mumble something about 'bouncebackability' before stumbling off into the night (leaving Kerins with the taxi bill) and we'll try again this Saturday at home to Elstow...
