2nd LSVCC Single Wicket 3/5/09
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
