A regular theme of the 2019 season has been that of poor excuses and weak reasons for not playing. With many regulars once again either sick, lame or lazy it meant that Will Watts was able to call upon 3 of his school friends. These lads needed a nickname. The 3 musketeers was suggested. Worryingly, the good the bad and ugly appears to be the nickname that will stick.
The ball was thrown to new boy Fred “The baby-faced assassin” who looks like he will be a useful addition with his handy seam bowling. Fred, Beckett, Flame and Tom Norman restricted the Academy to a useful 93 of their 20 overs.
The Agnes innings began well. Will Watts and Will Norman combining to hit boundaries. When Watts was out Louis Beckett came in and continued from the previous night in smashing 31 form 12 deliveries. Agnes reached their target in a comfortable 9.3 overs.
The Agnes recorded their 2nd win in as many days. We had 3 new useful additions. The port moment was shared between the new youngsters. Pizza was eaten and port was swilled. The manager had a smile on his face. All was well in the camp….surely? Well… Guy (another new player) asked (once the pizzas had been devoured) if we get any more pizza.
When Guy was told that there would be no more pizzas arriving he simply replied, “Fred, we’re gunna have to go to Maccies mate!” Will we ever see Guy again? Maybe only if the judge puts more pizza in the oven. Watch this space…
