In week 5, there were some low scoring affairs. On a difficult pitch at Albrighton, our 1st XI was bowled out for 149. Jason Summers and former Dragon Ben Miller got 3 wickets apiece. Steve Taylor (21) and then late order batsmen Neil Davies(33) and Scott Peckham managed to make the score half-way respectable. It turned out to be plenty as Steve Taylor (3/19) blew away the top order Albrighton batsmen before captain Ben Byram (5/20) saw off most of the others to give St.Georges maximum points as Albrighton were bowled out for 84. The 2nd XI bowled Wellington IV out for 107, with all the bowlers chipping in with wickets. Alan Denver(35) and David Ross(22) were the backbone of the Wellington innings. The St.Georges reply started steadily enough with opener Sean Parkes making 37. Then wickets began to fall before Liam Forrester and Matt Conniffe took control to guide us to victory by 5 wickets. The 3rd XI conceded 225/4 to Cae Glas with Ruchira Nimanath hitting an aggresive 106 before being brilliantly caught by John Sadler. After a slow start in reply St.Georges eventually got to 193/9 – Alex Dillon (54) , Bobby Gill(51) before having to settle for the losing draw. Club history was once again (see post from last season) rewritten in a 4th XI match – but not in a good way. Having set up  what looked like an easy win by skittling Quatt for 61, 6 (yes, six!) St.Georges batsmen then declined to trouble the scorer. Charlie Dillon then started the fightback, smashing a quickfire 1 , before Haider Raza, Khurram Waris, Steve Pessall and Kevin Myatt raced along to 3,2,2 and 3 respectively. 18 all out, counting the seven extras. Never in the field of human conflict was so few scored by so many … or something like that. The U10s game on Sunday morning was cancelled by Wellington. The U15s finally got their match season off to a start, but were well beaten by Wellington after our batsmen all threw their wickets away after doing well to bowl Wellington out for 202 (six wickets for Richard Sambrook). I won’t mention the score other than to say it was a lot more than the 4th XI!
