Two from Two
Win again for ACC
Ambleside CC welcomed Ingleton CC for their first home game of the 2017 season and after their comfortable win at Trimpell were confident of a win. A green wicket and short straight boundary had captain Wileman pondering 15 or 12 points but as I am unsure of how the toss went Ambleside had a bat first so a full 15 were to play for. Cockney fell early, but Tush and Oli built a small partnership before both fell in quick succession leaving Johnson and Tudor to rebuild. With the score on 104 Johnson gifted his wicket allowing 'The Mouth' to stroll out to the middle and continue his good batting form from last week. Ambleside didn't really take advantage of the good work made by Tudor and 'Mouth' and concluded their innings on 181 for 9, probably 30 short.
After tea Ambleside were keen to take early wickets but the breakthrough seemed to take forever. Once it did it was one way traffic with Ingleton being bowled out for 98. To be honest the second innings was a pretty dull and drab afternoon but it was noticed that the grass grows around a fifth of an inch in two hours or so!! Next week Ambleside travel to early pace setters Bare.

MOM - Tudor for solidifying the batting innings, just my opinion though.
