It was a day of disaster in Tamworth as my City United club were spanked by arch rival Bective Easts in all four grades. Hammered, slogged, flogged ... where Bill Lawry when you need him?
Firsts were playing the first club game to be played under lights in Tamworth. They got 4-300 off 45 overs, we replied with 175.
Seconds gave up 3-236 off 40 and replied with 105.
Thirds recovered to get 155 when our young fast bowler spanked 41 at No10. Bective lost three wickets getting their.
Fours managed only 110 and were passed with only 5 wickets gathered.
Rough reckoner - they scored 800 odd for the loss of 15 and we replied with 445 for the loss of 40.
Oh well. We had a ovely BBQ after the games!
