RBA  71-4  beat Flamborough Lighthousemen  70-7    16 overs

Ask the Manager what his favourite game of the season is and he will answer with the South Dalton trip. Ask Watty, Chopper and the Skipper and they will all answer Flamborough away.

Ben Brown was available after positive discussions were held with his union leader, Stoz. The Flame is currently available for all away games. A deal still hasn’t been reached regarding home games with the new wicket being laid.

The game begun in pure farce, the Agnes taking 12 men onto the field. It was decided that Harvey was the guilty party in not reading the Manager’s text message. Under intense sunlight and heat, the Lighthousemen got off to a flyer with boundaries coming at regular intervals. The returning Flame then grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck and simply toyed with the opposition and taking a career best 6 for 10.

Games at Flamborough always have drama and when Agnes walked out to bat it was under an extreme sea fret; the church bells rang repeatedly and Charlie Watts said that his Rolex stopped working. Suddenly, 70 off 16 overs looked like an enormous score. Some said it was the curse of Pedro and who were we to disagree with them?

Agnes got home in the last over thanks to the recently snared Khan Ward holding his nerve. The MBP scoring 31 not out.

After the game, it saw the Agnes get a hot tattie and curry which was lovely to see. Mark and Louis Beckett then snuck off into Bridlington to have some cheeky drinks before Little Louis from North Carolina flew back to the States. Things got a little out of hand. Attached is a picture of Little Louis trying to frantically withdraw some money before boarding his plane this morning.
