Wakefield Thornes v Northowram Fields CC First XI on Sat 02 Jun 2007 at 1.00
Northowram Fields CC Won 6pts

Match report A solid batting performance set the foundations for a comfortable victory for the rams in the end, in an important promotion battle in CYCL division 1.

Rob Larner once again led from the front scoring another 50 (but seen as a blob as he had scored 100 in his last two innings), as the rams posted a large target of 233 for 9 on the big Thornes ground. The middle order contributed well with Weisner a swashbuckling 44, Scott Hadnum 30, and Jason “gay hands” Smith 27. But all fell disappointingly after batting well. It was left to the left hand supremeoes Sam Brittain and Matthew Rushworth to pick up the pieces at the end to get the score to 233 without the team being all out. Amazingly 5 of the Rams batsmen were out to a squealing junior (possibly a Fergy offspring maybe ???!!!).

A score of 233 was always a daunting task for Thornes, and they never really looked like troubling the score. They only managed 110 with Gary Rodger taking 3 wickets and Chris Thompson taking 4 more pies!!! But the dismissing of the home side came really down to magnificent fielding by the rams, obviously brought about by the fielding drills we have been practicing, much to the middle aged men of our teams delight, I won’t mention any names Gary and Ian. There were three run outs, 5 catches and a stumping!!!!
