LSVCC batted solidly, including undefeated 30 from CB, and a few lusty blows from NM. Big guns lower down order not needed, and trophy secured at same time as Ashes victory at Oval with MT and skipper JH still at crease. All retired to Crown for pork, trimmings and well earned refreshments. David Watson, president of Kimbolton Castle Rotary presented unique trophy to skipper, and man of the match to Tony Moss, captain of the losing side....challenge to be resumed next year.

Finalising a logo for shirts and maybe caps next season...have a look at images below and let me know which one you prefer. The basis for the design is from 109 squadron shield, from whom we originally borrowed the motto 'primi hastati'. I think left one for shirts right one for caps ?

Moss and Arch were sent out to open and a quick start was made, a few swift blows and some quick, yes I said quick singles started the board ticking, until Tony had, had enough of Jody's running and took a big swing at a straight one and missed, 1st wicket down. This brought OJ to join Jody and the pair started to form a decent partnership, with some good running, some big hits and a lot of luck from little paxton drop catches. After seeing off the opening bowler, a change of bowling at the dog poo bin end saw to the end of Arch (38 from 45 balls [thanks to the paxton scorer for marking the dot balls in the score book!!])
Phil W and Pat came and went, the latter LBW to an Easy one for Mr Banks to look at. Glen Joins OJ and sets his stall out he's not hanging around for long. A change of gloves later and OJ hits 6 over the childrens play area to bring up the 1st LSVCC 100. Phil Day replaces the retired OJ and He and Glen are not in the mood for running as balls fly to the ropes. with the 200 coming up and 8 overs left, will N replaces Glen (another Not Out knock) and comes back first ball to one that loops onto the top of the bails. Ben W replaces Will and shows him how it should be done. Batman Robbins then replaces the not out Phil with 4 overs to go and has a swing first ball, when Ben finally departs following a solid looking knock Ollie M join the love of his life and lets just say the running was not the best!!! Ollie lost his wicket with just over an over to play, and LSVCC decided not to send OJ back in so with 3 players retired and 1 not out a score of 231 for 7 dec was posted.
Following Tea, Clive took the new ball from the Greys Grove end, and should have had a wicket first ball but for Roy boy not agreeing it was going on to hit the stumps after the batsman forgot he had a bat and used his pads!! OJ then dropped the 2nd ball from a faint edge behind. Batman joined him in taking the ball from the dog poo bin end, and looked to be straight into his stride with some quick deliveries outside the off peg. these two kept balling well and deserved a wicket if not too but it took a change of balling with ollie M taking over from Clive and after testing the batsmans ability and the keepers by spraying the ball all over the place, then getting the batsman to nick one behind with Oj taking a straight forward catch. As Jody rang the balling changes with good spells from all involved (Phil W, Phil d, Ben W, Glen) little paxton managed to move slowly but surly towards their target with out losing wickets along the way.
At the 20 over drinks break Pat departed from the fray falling ill, leaving the fielding rotation easy, all players now on the pitch. with 28 overs balled and the target getting closer their opener passes his 100. A change in plan was formed and Phill D took over behind the stumps and OJ joined the attack to try and slow the run rate down a little. With good spells coming in here from all and the Fielding picked up a little with everyone not wanting to see defeat.
coming in to the final over LSVCC seemed to have done enough leaving Paxton needing 15 from 6 balls and glen balling the final over. With Oj setting a field of EVERYONE on the ropes, the bats man took a couple of byes, and then a wicket 13 off 3 and a new man on strike. with one swing of the bat make that 7 off 2, another bye leaving 6 off 1. Glen looked a little nervous at this point lets hope thats a feeling him and his fellow country men have all summer, but with a good delivery paxton were restricted to 1 from the final ball leaving a LSVCC victory by 5 runs.
A good win in the end, in what was a very enjoyable game.

Sunday 3rd May saw 14 of Little Staughtons finest take to the playing field for the 2nd LSVCC Single Wicket Competition.
In true village style the 12pm start soon became a 12.30 ish start, with Jody setting the standard with some very energetic running between the wickets, and a total of 55 of his 4 overs.
The first wicket of the day did not fall until the 4th batsman, and was a family affair with Thrasher senior bowling Junior Thrasher (Ben). Following this wickets started to become a little bit more of an recurrence, and the first run out came about off of the bowing of Pete Pullan, with James running out newbie Clive.
Notice must be made of the tactics of Peter F, giving Simon Stokes a wide down leg, then one outside off, followed by the straight which was in turn missed by Stokes the rest is history.
In the end the event finishes with a Tie, with both James and Adrian finishing with a total for the day of 59. The pair took to the net for a 3 ball bowl off, and with Adrian determined to win it with spin, and Hoppy hitting the deck forgetting it was concrete, the on looking spectators (well players), were starting to think it may be time to take to the pub and settle this with a drink off, when Hoppy chucked down a full toss taking out off peg, and our champion for 2009 was crowned.
Other areas of interest were as follows:
Most runs scored in 4 overs: Jody & Adrian (55)
Most runs scored in 1 over: Will (21)
Best Bowling 1 over: Simon (-8)
Best Bowling 4 overs: James: (10)
Most wickets in 1 over: Simon/Ben/James (2)
Most Wickets in 4 overs: James/Adrian (3)
Highest placed Junior (depends what age you class as junior): Bob 6th / Will 5th / Ben 8th
