Beautiful Brigstock – Almost

The seconds were in action over at Brigstock on Saturday and so I  went over to lend my support and it was nice to see that others had too, namely Mark Bird, Nick Lester , Ellen Bird and of course Malcolm Browning which immediately told me they must have a bar !Brigstock is a lovely place to play and watch cricket although when I arrived with the Cooks 58-4 the playing bit of that last statement was in doubt and over the next hour it got even worse as we were eventually dismissed for 92. Liam Knight with 39 not out looked a class act with some beautiful shots and a fifty would have been an appropriate reward had he not run out of partners.

Tea was superb with Dan Harris extolling the virtues of the Victoria Sandwich.

As the Cooks went out to field skipper Gareth rallied the troops and to some effect as Liam took 2 wickets in an over followed quickly by a third with Syd swooping in from mid off to snap up a great catch. With Tony Birds accuracy at the other end the hosts were in trouble as wickets slowly began to fall.

In the end Brigstock got home by 3 wickets but it was a fantastic effort in the field by the lads.

The seconds have a great spirit about them with everyone getting on so well from Julie and her coloured pens making sure our scorebook is spot on , to Allan “the cat” Packer our umpire who is always fair and honest right through the whole team. What I saw on Saturday and the week before gives me great optimism for this season for the seconds.
