The Agnes travelled to high flying Driff Rec. With both teams currently on 6 wins from 6, this was going to be a top of the table encounter. The last time these teams met, was last year’s painful Hospital Cup defeat – a game when Driffield put 9 men on the boundary in the run chase (yes, I mentioned this in the first paragraph).
Agnes begun well with Sam Wragg crashing a few boundaries. The Agnes then consolidated with the MBP and Freddie Gunning. It was around the 12 over mark when the MBP hit 3 sixes that Agnes began to build a healthy score. Freddie Gunning ending on 57 and Will on 86.
It was then time for the Agnes to bowl tight – the Skipper soon had Owen Goldsworthy caught at long on, much to his displeasure. The Flame then removed the other danger man, Jack Oakley with a Jordans Zamunda wonder catch. The catch sparked wild scenes around the portable radio back home from his family’s work force. The Manager has also reportedly watched the catch back 50 times on his HD cinema screen in Italy. The game however wasn’t over with Tot Ritchie scoring a fighting half century. Luckily for the Agnes, regular wickets continued to fall.
This was another win for the Agnes in a game played in bad spirits. Next time, the Driffield captain can set his own fields and decide who bowls for the Agnes.
We do regret to inform you that Richard Watts had a very bad reaction to the 8 bowls of stew that he consumed at the Full Measure afterwards. Richard had two seizures in the night and is currently on life support. Freddie Gunning also spent the night in a cell after being arrested outside Candy Kingdom, whilst dressed up as Peppa Pig, in the early hours of the morning.
