1st XI on target for runners up spot

In week 16 all teams were severely depleted by unavailability. The 1st XI openers Gareth Hughes (67) and Mo Zaheer(37) made a steady start against Albrighton. Towards the end of the innings the run rate increased with Chris Miller adding 43 and Chris Waldron 34 no. to make a total of 220/5. Albrighton’s reply looked to be on target with Ben Miller(45), Chris Bott(21) and Steve Clifford(26). Then our bowlers asserted themselves and wickets began to fall. Paul Smart took 3/28 and Chris Miller 4/48 to dismiss Albrighton for 175 with three overs left. The second XI had to play without captain Dave Pope, who was called away to an emergency at work. The depleted team could not prevent Wellington from racking up 305/7. In reply only Matt Chesters(36), 15 year old Tom Griffiths(39), and 16 year old Jack Forrester(17) significantly troubled the scorers. 115 all out. The third XI were similarly below strength. Mike Ross’s 91 constituted most of the St.Georges total of 167 at Cae Glas, which the hosts easily knocked off in 21 overs. Records continue to be broken by our 4th XI. Quatt, who bowled us out for a record low 18 in the first half of the season, made 237/2 with Georges Breakwell scoring 114 no. However, sexagenarian chairman Paul Taylor had been pressed into service to replace one of the gaps left by this week’s many holidaymakers. His opening partner Jack Heath hit 131 not out, despite being denied many singles and twos by his partner’s less than lightening running. Your correspondent was not not present, but reliable witnesses tell of an all-walked two by Paul. He finished on 96 no, as the target was reached in 35 overs without a wicket being lost. As far as we know , there has never been a completed St.Georges match with only two wickets falling.

Rain returns to frustrate

In week 15 the rain was the winner. The first XI made 206/8 at Ludlow with Gareth Hughes(23), Mo Zaheer(45), Chris Miller(35) Mitch Hoof(19) and Chris Waldron(25) getting runs with support from all the other batsmen. but the match was abandoned after only 8 overs of the Ludlow innings. The 2nd XI looked set for a comfortable win, after Luke James (4/36), Sam Morgan(3/17) and Bobby Gill (2/49) bowled out Ludlow for 191. With rain threatening Avi Mathur (46), Matt Chesters(31no) and Sam Morgan(15no) didn’t hang about, but it was all in vain as the rain came at 19 overs with score on 103/1. The 3rd XI were gifted 24 points by no-show Harcourt. The 4th XI made the long trek to Llanidloes and managed to complete their match with a win. Ross Wilmot(61) and Joe Gregory (63no) steered them to 203/8 before Khurram Waris (7/33) wiped out most of the home side’s batting to bowl them out for 66.
