The day started with dave winning the toss an electing to bat on what looked like to be a good deck.. We were in trouble early with Macca nicking out first ball and billy to follow soon after.

Losing 3 more wickets to be 5-54, On came our hero captain Dave to steady the ship who put on a brilliant partnership with Elliot (sheep) Maher until Sheep decided he would run himself out after 4 attempts to do so. Dave worked with the tail to give us a competitive total of 190.

After lunch Orthy and Tim took the new ball and had us our first wicket in tims first over.Orth doing well with the ball and going for a miserly 4 runs off his six overs. Macca and sheep to be first change both handy with the ball Elliot taking two and Macca picking up a sneaky wicket. The score at 5-83 Clarence were looking to try and pinch runs everywhere.

But they couldn’t get past Tim Faltusz with an acrobatic dive and an unorthodox backhand throw over the top Jimmy whipping the bails off for an excellent run out. Myself and Jimmy cleaned up the middle order and the tail myself taking 3 and jimmy the 2. A very good win for us after being in trouble early.
