Sat 2 June - 1st XI v Speldhurst

Posted on 3rd June in 1sts Match Reports, 2007

On winning the toss the Shoreham skipper inserted Speldhurst on a drying wicket. A miserly bowling performance by James Trick 1 for 12, backed early on by Ed Walker 2 for 44 kept the run rate down. The visitors opener Roche (23) looked dangerous untill being brilliantly run out by Sam Trick. Renton (18) and Trace (18) the only other 2 batsmen to cause any problems to the Shoreham attack. Bob Stacey again turning in a match winning performance taking 4 for 31 and helping to keep the visitors down to 130 all out. The other wicket takers for Shoreham were Sam Trick 1 for 4 and Ray Trick 1 for 35.

Shoreham got off to a good start with an opening partnership of 83 between Andy Montieth (40) and Nick Walker jnr. (35), but with 3 wickets falling at that score in 3 balls (Stanyard getting a golden duck on his first outing of the season being trapped LBW and with Nick Walker snr unable to think of any reason for turning the appeal down it was a long walk back) warning bells started to ring especially with Nick Pearce (3) falling soon afterwards it was left to James Trick 22no and Ed Walker 20no to see Shoreham home by 6 wickets in under 30 overs giving them their second league win of the season and a valuable 14 points.

    Knowing Jerry I am sure he could have thought of loads of reasons for Nick to turn the LBW appeal down.

    I wish I’d have got a photo of it. Although a video camera may have been more suitable for the length of time there was between appeal and decision!

    Look at it this way, Jerry. Al least you got to bat. Just a shame you didn’t use it for its intended purpose, that’s all.

    Jerry my suggestion is to follow the lead shown by one Shoreham player who contested a caught at 2nd slip decision saying he had not hit the ball.

    The umpire’s decision is final, just like the captain’s decision on the batting order…

    Just thought I would mention that Jerry and Nick are together again on Saturday. Isn’t fate a fickle mistress.
