vs Mistley, away, 23rd April ’22
With several players held up for a few days due to A12 roadworks, Colne were a little short-handed as they took to the field….
…..several hours later, we had our shock 2nd loss of the season, albeit a close one by 3 runs. Positives to be taken in that we almost chased down a 200+ total for the first time in 32 years and that the middle order actually contributed, but disappointing that having been ahead of the run-rate, we fell behind at the last hurdle to some rather wayward legside bowling and too many ‘swings & misses’. Further frustration came when studying the scorebook revealed most of Colne’s batters had scored less than they had been mentally counting themselves ! But the result was correct, so no complaints.
Next week, first home game and the launch of the much-awaited scoreboard.
