Mirfield PC A v Northowram Fields CC First XI on Sat 14 Jul 2007 at 1.00
Northowram Fields CC Won by 7wkts (6pts)

Match report The Rams maintained their unbeaten run to ten matches as they comprehensively beat hosts Mirfield Parish Cavaliers by 7 wickets.

The toss was won by skipper Robert Larner who had no hesitation in putting the home side in to bat, despite the fact that we had “Cinderella” in our team with only one shoe!!

Opening bowlers Gary Rodger and Matthew Rushworth put pressure on the Mirfield batting earlier in their innings with some tight line and length bowling. This pressure eventually told as Rushworth took the first three wickets, reducing Mirfield to 28 for three. Meanwhile Gary Rodger was still bowling some tight lines at the other end, the first 7 overs costing only 2 runs! Rodger eventually grabbed his first of three wickets with a close catch by Scott Hadnum, despite the attempts of “filler in” Jason Smith dropping one of the easiest catches you have ever seen!

Chris Thompson, Billy Grogan and Scott Hadnum all claimed a wicket apiece as Mirfield posted only 118 all out, with only the 9th wicket pair offering any resistance with a partnership of 49. A great bowling display and not so great fielding (we know what we are practicing this week) display left the Rams with just 119 to win of 58 overs.

The Rams reply started well with “Paul “Mr Tickle” Bottomley and Rob “Big Ears” Larner offering some classy shots early on but both fell rather cheaply only managing 27 between them. The real star of the show was Paddy Pat Wiesner, who made an unbeaten 57 not out, including some mouse power shots!! Weisner reached the modest total with Gary Rodger who made a valuable anchor innings of 0 not out, with Scott Hadnum the only other player to bat getting 22.

An easy victory for the Rams, who now have stretched their lead at the top of the table to 19 points, with other challengers all losing at the weekend.

The match against giants Townville was washed away and will now be played on the 29th of the month.
