The Agnes chaps arrived at a well fertilized North Dalton ground. A picturesque ground that is always an enjoyable night for the travelling Agnes men.
Agnes won the toss and batted. This gave Louis Beckett the chance to reignite his cricketing talents. Louis hit a towering six over the changing rooms but it was then back to reality for Little Louis from Ossett. He was run out in very similar circumstances to his failed bleep tests at Hull City. When Louis’ opening partner, the jacketless Sam Moore was dismissed, it sparked a collapse. Agnes were soon 20-6.
Jordan Zamunda and Charlie Watts dug in and thanks to many extras by Brieviks Larson with his bowling style of pace, spin and wides it meant Agnes posted a decent score. The Flame was involved in a comical mid pitch fall and scorer, Richard Watts told the Dalton scorer, Mary that 69 is his favourite number. The Agnes committee will be holding a formal investigation to address Richard’s conduct.
The Agnes chaps bowled well. Alpha male, Sam Appleton was economical, the Flame bowled one unplayable delivery and Jordan Zamunda was involved in a mid-pitch shove as the game became tight. Marley Ward trapped Alec Drury in front of all 3 and proud brother Finn was seen clenching his fists when the umpires finger went up.
The game went to the final over and George Drury sealed the win with a towering six. Port moment was awarded to the Flame for his incredible fall.
All in all, it was an enjoyable first game back for the Agnes chaps.
