Peebles County Cricket Club 2nd XI v Fauldhouse 2 on Sat 02 Jul 2011 at 1300
Peebles County Cricket Club Lost for players

Match report On Friday morning P2s had 10 players. By Friday evening they had seven. The 1st XI had taken two and the ever loyal Sandyman made use of the second decent day since April to cut silage.

P2s batted first and were undone by some terrific bowling from 13-year-old Darren Allen, as well the Whitestone Park pitch at its worst. George Thornton played immaculately before being dismissed by a devilish popper from a good length and Swanny had his off peg flattened by a ball that was wide enough to leave. A.N.Other, otherwise known as new boy Jonathan Dennis, saved the side's blushes with a fiesty performance. Pity noone could stay with him, although Barry Sheppard did valiently and David (not Alistair) Stewart hung around longer than he has ever done. The remaining A.N.Others on the scoresheet are not Jonathan's relatives, but the spaces between someone else's cousin and noone at all.

Fauldhouse openers, which included the absurdly talented Darren A, had no trouble playing tip and run. Only two of the home team's fielders could throw the ball and one of these (Jonathan) crocked himself bowling. By this time, after tea, the wicket had changed from a fiery pudding to a flat pancake. Neither Swanny, nor Barry, could make anything of it. Chris W's line-and-length looked the most promising, as did a hobbling JD. George should have had a wicket with his first delivery but their umpire denied the stumping. C'est la whatsit!

Another day, another defeat. Is there anywhere to hide?
