Versus Tamworth

21 June, League, Away, Tamworth

The Over 40s took on Tamworth for the first time at their picturesque countryside ground on a hot summer evening, in front of the largest Over 40s crowd to date. Fielding first, the Manor’s bowling was tight and long boundaries were defended well as the hosts stroked the ball round the field on an excellent rock-hard track. Only two wickets were taken in the 136 total – Loky Perera’s catch at extra cover off Shashi Thakor and Chris Wooding’s catch behind the stumps off Abdul Rahim.

An uncharacteristic disappointing attempt was then made to chase down a gettable score, losing early wickets and later suffering unnecessary run-outs, reaching only 89 all out, including Simon Bowen 34, Ian Hudson 19 and Perera 13.
