As fielding incorrectly called at the toss carteledge elected to bat as local taxi firms rushed regular spectators to the ground in time to see a all too familiar top order collapse as j.swann steamed in from the pavillion end, however the silly 7 over rule gave the hosts a breather which allowed forder to tuck into andrew olivers change bowling. With joe gregory hanging onto forders coat tails a partnership of 50 developed before wrights off breaks dispossessed of forder, a out of form turner arrived in the middle in a superman cape and either side of gregorys stupid dismissal play a superb counter attacking innings of 50 before dave carteledge roled back the years with a hard hit 43* resulting in dove being loose from the noose enjoying the duck spring roles at tea having posted 213-8. Luckily the opening bowling partnership of sean critchlow and jack gregory had a light bite at the interval and proceeded to gallop in as mottram produced a second top order collapse in the game. Carteledge rolled the dice bowling out critchlow and gregory on the reel, with mottram 65-5 kepper batsman baird (63) and barry moore steadily started to repair the damage before des walker broke the parnership with forders second slip catch of the game. 9, 10 and jack soon perished despite m.scott launching a rare 6 from carteledges mystery spin leaving mottram all out in the 160s. A game played in good spirits ended as every game should do with all the visitors stopping for a pint.
