Edenbridge Cricket Club Saturday 2nd XI v Cuckfield IV on Sat 08 Jul 2017 at 13:30
Match was Abandoned due to opposition player's injury !!

Match report Another guest appearance by Club Captain Mr Woodman resulted in him winning the toss (as usual !!) against the CQ's. And, as usual, we put the oppo in. Michael J was as unlucky as he possibly could be with the new ball, beating the bat time & again. Gat at the other end plugged away, picking up wickets (3 in all), his usual steady & nagging, Glen McGrath like approach. In came big Tommy Watson & started swinging his long levers to good effect. Several sixes soared across the boundary. Josh was the unlucky bowler to be most affected. In desperation, skipper Woodman approached TC saying "I'd like you to bowl the next over". Astonished look fading form his face, TC duly went through his lengthy warm up routine. Not only did he bowl the next over, but proceeded to bowl the next 14, removing the swinging Watson courtesy of a fine catch on the long off boundary (Mike M shouting "back, back, back" in direction) ! Meanwhile, Twirlyman Dan wheeled away with his mix of leggies, googiles & flippers at the other end, weaving his spell, until a curious declaration after 46.3 overs.

Joycey & JW started us off with a fine opening stand, putting on over 50 in quick time. Then a flurry of wickets (Mr Watson again in the action) left the middle order reeling . Wardy was able to stay with the skipper, & looked set on seeing him through to a well deserved hundred until disaster struck. A serious injury to our friend Mr Watson resulted in an ambulance having to be called & the player himself unable to be moved from the pitch. Despite being called well before the scheduled close of play, Mr Watson was still laying there on the square as the sun disappeared below the trees at the Coxy End. Sadly, within touching distance of a well deserved victory, the inevitable end was a still absent ambulance & an abandoned game. Rather than a fully deserved 28 points, we ended up with just 10 !!
(Post script: Mr Watson emailed JW to say he was fully recovered later that week.)
