Brockley vs Woolpit II

Crickets coming home

Brockley, kindly sponsored by A14 Tyres, arose early on Saturday morning for an Test Match style 1100 start at on a baking hot day at Woolpit.

Sykes (12-4-16-1), unperturbed by the early start time took a wicket with the first ball of the game, amazingly held one handed by Fisher at 2nd slip after arriving late (again) and Brockley were cock-a-hoop. They then realised how unbearably hot it was and didn't take another wicket for 21 overs as Pilgrim (35) and Bradwell (81) rebuilt. Webb jr could have set a Brockley record for most chances created however the ball evaded just about every fielder on the team as Sykes continued dotting away from the other end.

At 178-4 Woolpit were looking set for a big score, before Walter-Smith (4-73) took his customary 4 wickets, including a stunning 1 handed catch by Beeton on the boundary. If he had dropped that one he then would have fielded with one hand behind his back for the rest of the game

After a hard 3 hours in the field, Woolpit closed on 222-7 from their 40 overs. McCaffrey & Webb were a bit keen to watch the football and threw their wickets away leaving Fisher and Huffer at 49-2 after 10 overs.

Then some football happened and Brockley realised the contingent of Fenner, Fenner and Webb were missing as the run chase resumed. On a rare day in Brockleys history however, no other batsmen needed put his pads on as Fisher (78*) and Huffer (108*) carted the Woolpit bowlers all over the park putting on 185 for the 3rd wicket with Huffer bringing up his first Brockley 100 with a whack over square leg (cow corner), Brockley the victors by 8 wickets. Thanks to Woolpit for the great hospitability throughout the day and great coverage of the England game.

An excellent few weeks for the small village of Brockley, with the Sunday team 1st in Div 2, Seconds 2nd in Div 9W and 1sts 3rd in Div 3.
