Little Staughton Tornados....

With four runs off two balls required to secure victory for Little Staughton, a nail biting finish to an enjoyable evening’s cricket was guaranteed yesterday evening as LS took on the Tax enforcers!
Staughton’s fielding was punctuated with some shining stars in the form of Bob’s three well deserved wickets and some less commendable catching, which resulted in Middleton senior having three catches dropped (one by himself!).
With a creditable target of 94 to chase, Staughton’s run rate was initially pedestrian until Ollie Jordan was able to punish some wayward balls and send fielders scurrying into the surrounding fields and hedges. The run rate required was challenging right up until the final delivery. Gregson was able to clinch the match for LS with some well placed boundary shots resulting in victory.
The evening was completed with our own Tornado fly past courtesy of Clive’s son who is stationed at Marham.
Thank you all for an enjoyable and entertaining evening

Evening sunshine....

Once again clouds dispersed to reveal blue skies and warm summer evening. Another fine win for LSVCC against Aircraft Research Establishment, and as usual played in fine spirit. Alround good bowling performance, notably Maya, and top of the order batting (Jody, Adrian, James). Fielding sometimes sublime, often ridiculous...Tony once again look set for long innings, but let down by incorrect footwear. Marie out shopping right now for studs...
