Apparently there was a heated debate at selection last night where it was suggested that I go in the first team. Milly even proposed it, but Chairman Eddie Ford, yes the same Eddie who clipped Colin round the head on Saturday, duly ignored Milly and didnt even ask for a seconder. My opinion doesn’t really count as I’m not a selector, but if we are relying on 49 year olds to turn out for the firsts then the club is in a parlous state!
And speaking of Milly, the under 16s look to be on the wrong end of a drubbing at Hazel Grove tonight, having been bowled out for 39ish. Even the rain will have come too late to save them, though it could have been worse as at one stage they were 1 for 5.
On the plus side, Neil Shaw was an interested spectator, and I look forward to his match report, including the performance of perennial umpire Peter Crowley.
