Veni, vidi, delicatus scoreboardus

vs Eight Ash Green, home 30th April ’22

The square was glistening in the beautiful morning light, the players were stretching (some even able to reach their knees) and the amazing new electronic scoreboard hung precariously from the Rec Club wall, held on by half a tube of Gorilla Glue.

Meanwhile, EAG’s rather weakened side couldn’t manage Colne’s one-man destroyer, Ben Mason taking the weekend accolades with an unbeaten 50 followed by 3 wickets (including the usual c&b that no other bowler would have dreamed of reaching) He was ably supported by Dave Moon who didn’t wish to purchase a jug so was happy to see several catches in the deep go down off his dobblers. Odd to see that the scorebook recorded both of the openers as ‘hit wicket’ as they were bamboozled by the local leggie.

End result, we won by 99 runs, but with several players still unavailable for a variety of reasons and even more missing next week, can Colne keep this winning streak going over at Stowmarket on 7th May ?
