      Match: Old Doms won by 7wks      
         

Well it looked like this match would succumb to the weather but the ground drained well and with the covers on the match was on. Today's visitors were our old adversaries the Westie boys, always a match filled with banter and the odd moment of great cricket.

For once Pedro won the toss and was looking for his first win as captain this year. The Doms would bowl in what turned out to be the best time to bowl. Srini picks up a wicket in the first over, a well judged catch by Hodgy and with only 11 on the board the visitors lost big hitting Heath when Danny Brookes took the first of his two match day catches. The Doms were on top.

Butcher and Stock started to rebuild the Westies innings and moved the score steadily onto 41 before Stock was snaffled by Hodgy off Pedro's bowling. 3-41.

Butcher and Persy took the score onto 3-86 at the 20 over drinks break with Butcher looking comfortable. Well his heart sank when he saw his nemesis come on to bowl, Last bowling  up hill.

Butcher had the first victory as Last first ball was over pitched and Butcher dispatched it for 4. Four dot balls followed, tension was mounting, Last bowled the sixth a tad wider, Butcher stretched and top edge to Boyton at point who took a good catch above his head. Butchers six ball nightmare was at an end and trooped off for a well constructed 44.

The Doms bowlers kept the flow of runs in check with only Yomans getting any real runs for a not out 35 as the Westies innings ended on 168-7. The Doms had fielded well with some good catches being held, Danny Brookes holding a sharp chance low down in dismissing Rich Winstanly. Sadly again 4 more catches were spilled.

Tea was taken and the sun was coming out. The Tea, well the contents was ok but no tea until all the food was eaten. How can it be called a cricket tea without a steaming cup of strong English tea. It appears no one can be arsed from the Doms side. A very poor attitude and one that may promt a EGM. Its a simple process, the first one to the kitchen puts the kettle on and makes the tea. The players providing the milk or the crisps have sod all else to do, its not rocket science. Jonners would be mortified. Tea Index 2/10.

After the shabby tea the Doms set out to chase down the 169 to win. Both Davidge and Perry looked to get after the wayward bowling but sadly they both perished to excellent catches and at 2-17 the Doms were wobbling. Martin Brookes joined Hodgy and pushed the score on at chipper rate until Brookesy was LBW plumb in front. 3-56 but in only 7.1 overs.

Srini came in and was due a good knock, and with Hodgy provided a spectacle of aggressive hitting only giving away the odd difficult chances. The usually noisy Westie boys became increasing quiet as the fours and sixes were scored. The 169 was passed with ease in the 18th over with Hodgy on 85 not out and Srini 39 not out. The Doms had won by 7 wickets. A good well controlled performance all around by the Doms. The plus point for both teams was hitting the bar a full hour and a half early. 

Player of the Match: Hodgy again - 85no

Dropped Catches: Hunt M -1 Brookes M -2 Davidge-1  Running Total -22
