The one where Paul Walton surged ahead


Evening all,

Not long to go in the Fantasy Cricket League season and what a difference a week makes. Whilst league leader Paul Walton scored a healthy 159 points his closest chaser, John Bird, could only manage 40 points. An overall lead of 200 points might be enough to see Paul through to the title......... but you never know! At the bottom there was nothing to choose between the two Redrups and the gap widened to Jane Marshall. Top points scorer of the week was Lucas Evans (397) followed by Ally Carey (382), Elliot Griffiths (357), Andy Carey (347) and Jimmy Banks (315). Wayne Hollinshead slipped out of contention at the top with only 31 points.

On the pitch most of the 1st team found runs difficult at Water Orton whilst at the other end Bruce smashed 139! The match report describes his innings as one of the finest seen. Well played sir. The 2's spread the wickets out between them (as did the 1's) and had a comfortable 10 wicket victory thanks to not outs from Lucas Evans(89) and Josh Banks(36). The 3's bowled Whitmore Reans out for 117 with Ben Walton taking 3 wickets and the unmistakeable Alex Baker-Williams claiming 4 wickets. The USA's loss is our gain! Victory was gained with runs from Andy Carey(31), Jon Bish (35 no.) and a special mention for another returnee Phil McShane with 29 no. Jimmy Banks hit 38 for the T20 side the following day. The Sunday XI played a friendly against Coventry Ramblers CC and won with 5 balls to spare thanks to 85 no. from Andy Carey (I wish the season was just starting!) and 33 no. from Joe Timmins.
