Bish, Bash, Bosh


The cricketers played the footballers (in the form of the Angelo Bordi Memorial XI) at the game of cricket. The result depends upon who you ask. Evan says that the Cricket Team won but Quiffey insists that PeeWee demanded a recount of his runs and that the match was a tie. Both Ev and Quiffey agree that the catch with which Quiffey got Ev out was most fine.


The Suburbans beat Hengrove Athletic 5-3 (home). If they beat Fishponds tonight (Tuesday) they will have finished 3rd in Division 1.


The Saturday Cricket Team beat Wrington away in the pissing rain by 43 runs.

Stevo lost the toss again and on what is normally a dodgy pitch he and Ben (Blue Eyes) fell to the worst shooters that anyone can remember. Enter Gary to play the perfect innings. Staying at 3 an over until the last ten Gary propelled the Cowboys to 180 for 8, getting 84 with 25 coming from the last over. In fact the last over went thus: 6, dot, 6, 4, the bowler then tried to get a little sympathy by faking a hamstring injury then bowled a no ball that went for 2, 2, 4. After very tight bowling by Joe and Garner, Roger made up for getting a golden duck by taking 5 wickets for 32. Wrington were all out for 137 in 36 overs. Both Roger and Gary did the honourable thing and bought jugs.

Gary won man of the match and 2 sixes and a hamstring won the cider moment.

Sunday 1st Team beat Bath Exiles. Ned Bolt reports thus:

The Sunday 1sts season got under way with a tension-filled game at Frenchay versus Bath Exiles. The Cowboys were rewarded with a fine win in a game that see-sawed between the two teams. Cowboys batted first and managed 198 all out in 37.2 overs, the Exiles reply saw them reach 186 all out in 36.5 overs. Debutant: Sayed produced the Cider Moment with his bowling at the death, Harry was man of the match with 51 runs and 3 for 22, Bolts was ‘absolutely drained’. Harry did not buy a jug because he is too young.

Sunday 2ndt Team lost to Brislington. DC2 reports thus:

Having lost the toss and been forced to bat, we batted well. Angelo top scoring with 75 in an innings of sensibly applied grace and power, such that even the scorers missed the 50 “milestone” until another over had passed. Grant batted well with him, ending on 30? not out in a partnership of 120+ for the 5th?, and we made 194 for 6? in our allotted span.

Despite 3 early wickets when our opening bowlers Ben (2) and Sadat (1) had adjusted to either running uphill or downhill!!, one of their old sturdy 1st teamers(100+n.o.) came in, and together with a dangerously innocuous looking youth knocked off the runs despite the best efforts all the bowlers used on the unresponsive pitch. Wayne was our most economcal bowler and took a great slip catch, and Angelo hit the biggest 6 of the game. Angelo did not buy a jug because not enough of his team mates made it back to the pub to enjoy it.

MoM – Angelo Cider/Cyder moment – Wayne’s stunning slip catch.
