Teuchters v Peebles County Cricket Club 2nd XI on Sat 14 May 2011 at 1300
Peebles County Cricket Club Lost by an ocean of tears

Match report On a hard, rough wicket, with an outfield more suitable for sheep, P2 felt the pain of first game blues. Teuchters looked infuriatingly confidant from the get go, as catches hit the deck at regular 10 minute intervals. However, once The Sandyman found his rhythm timbers crashed and bails flew. Hope flickered and died as Eddie Jones, after a nervous start, and Jimmy Gray, who prefered to whack the ball to hell (e.g. beyond the boundary line), took charge, treating the visitors' attack with disdain. Barry Shep and Bouncy Fair refused to be bullied and eventually were rewarded for their controlled patience.

P2's performance with the bat deserves a three line obit. Angus Waste-Of-Space attempted suicide by slow running, succeeding finally with an undignified sprawl. Considering his age there were rumours of brain decay. Waste-Of-Space Jr lasted less time. The only ray of watery sunlight came from Murray P, who is still recovering from a winter illness. Despite glimpses of the old magic, he fell at the ninth, leaving P2's tail wagless.

Teuchters were delightful opponents, who kept changing bowlers to avoid a rout. Sadly, P2 was unable to make use of this sporting gesture.

PS: due to an anally retentive computer system new players have to disguise themselves under the nom-de-nobody A.N.Other. P2's No 5 was Peter Walker, with David Stewart at No 9 and Johnny Too-Late at No 11.
