Barmston 78-8 20 Overs
The Agnes Chaps travelled to Sewerby to play Barmston in the Hospital Cup quarter final. With no one really knowing what Barmston would be like, The Manager was forced to select a strong side.
With Tom Norman still banned and having to attend a WhatsApp behaviour course and Sam Wragg at a Ted lookalike convention in Birmingham, it meant that Marley Ward opened the batting with the MBP.
Freddie Gunning soon joined the MBP at the crease and it begun what turned out to be a rollercoaster of emotions for this young alpha male. Fred hit some lovely boundaries but was also hit extremely hard in his Cory – Fred was hit so hard that he had to retire hurt. Fred was then unfortunately chemically castrated by Mark Beckett in the changing room.
Agnes posted a healthy 147, which was an even greater effort when we saw the state of the ball used by Barmston.
The Goat and Flame then returned and restored normality after last week’s chaos. The Skipper picking up a classy 3-16 from his 5 overs. The Agnes ran to victory quite easily to book themselves into the semi-final. Port moment was awarded to ‘velcro hands’ Finn Ward for a wonder catch from his brother’s bowling.
The rollercoaster of emotions continued afterwards for young Freddie Gunning. Proud as punch and full of confidence, he brought along the new apprentice scorer to the bar afterwards. We do however regret to inform you that Fred was arrested on his walk home and is still in Hull prison. Fred blamed Stan fryer for his actions. The Agnes committee will have a meeting to discuss Fred and Stan’s behaviour.
