East Bergholt Cricket Club Two Counties First XI v Easton on Sat 02 Jul 2016 at 13:00
East Bergholt Cricket Club Won by 28 runs

Match report The First XI welcomed Easton to The Dish on Saturday, looking for a much needed 20 points. A number of big stars were absent, handing a 1st team debut to Jack Spinski, and a chance for George Foster to captain the First XI for the first time. However, much like Claudio, he lost the toss. The Easton skipper stuck us in, and so over to George and his unfamiliar opening partner Barney. On a difficult day to bat, the stand in skipper played nicely for 48 and Dan Last a very handy 30 to take Bergholt to 140.

After tea we felt we were well in the game and just needed a big performance in the field to get the job done. A big decision was made by the stand in skipper to give the new ball to B Mac instead of Nathan Smith, and looking back it was a decision that paid off. A tight opening spell from The Silverback and B Mac then allowed Nath to come on and bowl superbly for his 3 wickets in the middle overs (take note Ian). The Silverback also ended with 3 wickets, and there was a wicket on debut for Spinski. B Mac with 1, and 2 run-outs made up the 10 wickets taken by Bergholt, and Easton were all out 29 runs short.

A lot of pressure on the skipper coming back into the side now; questions to consider:

Will Mike ever have a beer with the boys again?
Will Pottsy bowl again this year?
Will Ian give B Mac the new ball?
Has Pottsy bought himself some better fitting trousers?
Who does Dicky Pick want to move to Colchester, 'hehe'?
