70’s v Hampshire – 1 June

 

The second Over 70's match took place at the very beautiful Winchcombe ground on a lovely sunny day


The Hampshire guys were not fazed by the early start and a near 3 hour drive  to get there for a 1pm start ....which was more than can be said for Gloucestershire Captain Tony Sadler
In preparation for his 5am start the following day for his Caravanning holiday to France, Tony decided to bring his new addition to the ground (see below)
Although living only a short distance away, word arrived that he had a flat battery on his caravan mover and had to take it to be repaired and that he would be late
He was! ,and at 12.45 Mondo was press ganged into going out to toss up, which he did, and without anyone telling him, after he won the toss and put them in to bat,
that we wanted bat first !


When the Hampshire openers entered the fray, and both were experienced England openers,  I offered Roger the opportunity to manage the side until Captain Caravan arrived
Starting off with only ten fielders on a small ground has its disadvantages and after opening with Trevor and Peter,  Hampshire were finding those gaps and were 30 -0
We managed to pull them back as Trevor trapped Blackley Lbw and Mondo bowled Swain , 49-2 .
However Ian Watson and Kyle gave us a demonstration of how to bat Seniors by amassing 171 runs, running 75 of them
Bellers on his home track had Kyle stumped by Malcom for 67 and then
Roger Beese  was on a hat trick after bowling Langford and Hicks
Watson was 81 not out at the close 228-5 .
Trevor Spindler 8-1-31-1; Mondo 8-3-20-1; Roger Bellfield 8-0-62-1: Roger Beese 4-0-31-2 the wicket takers


After a splendid tea Captain Caravan departed to collect his hopefully repaired caravan, with the batting order rearranged accordingly
Roger and Dave Hull set off with Dave unluckily stumped off a leg side wide which came back off the keepers pads , 3-1
Roger and Malcolm put on 45 when Beese was lbw for 21
Mondo joined Malcolm and took the score to 113-3, Mondo caught for 29
At this stage we were ahead of the required rate and Captain caravan re-joined the fray as he helped Bob and Malcolm take the score to 144
Malcolm making a splendid 40, the strain of running 26 of them taking its toll
On a small Winchcombe ground it seems it is a 4 or a single !
Tony with 14 and Bellers 11 and with wides now being the top score  from a tired Hampshire side  we were still in the game, however three quick wickets we were all out for 178


A commendable effort in only our second game against a strong Hampshire side sets us up nicely for the remaining games
The lessons to be learnt, BAT first, run singles, bowl no wides , SIMPLE !
Thanks again to Winchcombe CC for their splendid hospitality, Bellers drinks from the well, a super tea
Thanks to Eileen for giving up her and Stans day off to score (they had planned to watch the England one day game !)
Thanks to Len for supporting and to both umpires for the way they officiated
Hope Captain Caravan has a great holiday
Back to Winchcombe next week....what a beautiful setting
