won


Great turnout for Chairman's game>

Today we played the chairman's game and we was batting first...... Mitch and Glen opened and they got off to a good start but then Mitch got one that popped up and he was caught..... and then Glen scored a few runs but eventually got out. At this stage Tony and Charlie was in and they both scored a lovely 50 (It was nice to see Charlie get some runs) but he got a little bored and he got caught. So then I was in because I was boosted up the order but I gave my wicket away cheaply with a stupid shot (I was dropped by Tim). so then Billy Martins was in with Tony and Tony unfortunately got out so the 2 Bills were in. They both got a good little knock and The Ace was in and out out very cheaply. Then we saw Pete come to the crease and he got a couple of 4's and we finished on a lovely total of 245.

After a good batting performance we had to bowl and Mark and Pete opened are bowling attack and Mark got an early wicket and then Tim was in and Pete got him out for very little. After that Bill was bowling and he got 1 wicket. Then I came on at Pete's end and I got 2 wickets and after Bill we put our spinner on (Mitch). He got 1 wicket but should of been 2 from my great catch but Ace decided to use his umpiring skills and gave a No Ball. So then I had finished my spell and Billy Martins came on and bowled some lovely spin but he made Mitch do a lot of running and then Glen came on at Mitch's end and had a very good spell. They only managed to get 120 but they was unlucky and they was all out.
