Ready for battle......


Posted by Picasa

Last of the 2008 season...


Last outing of season....struggling with a few injuries (see below), but spirited batting recovery led by Olly Middleton and reliable though out of touch Jody. 127 never enough against Kimbolton side, despite some useful bowling from Maya, James and the Olly's. Played in good spirit in lovely setting. Fielding practice to be an agenda item at AGM later in year......even though Patrick wasn't playing. By the way, decent catch from old man T (keeper) sprinting to skied top edge and diving full length....

Ouch !!.....
























Two games this weekend, both unfortunately going the wrong way for LS. First against Blunham 3rd XI was creditable perormance particularly by bowlers, though 6 catches spilled and multiple extras....not helped either by their skipper who scored 100. However, fledgling side managed a good 138 in return so no embarrassment there. Notable bowling by Olly Middleton (who also found the middle of his bat on several occasions) and Olly T, who bamboozled and bowled a beauty round one victims legs. Stand in skipper Dad T unfortunate to be given out on boundary as fielder stepped over ropes...at least according to Maya T and Olly T ! Next day against Great Staughton, again bowling was excellent and they were restricted to less than 150....4 excellent wickets for Maya, but too many catches spilled again (Patrick please note). Unfortunately none of the batters really got going, so ended up 20 odd short despite Mayas valiant and painful last stand.....both games played in fine spirit.
