The 2015 season kicked off with the Doms facing our pals from Old Moseley Arms on a cold and very windy day. The day should have been a day of great hope and enthusiasm for the new season ahead but was overshadowed by the news that Bob the Bromsgrove CC groundsman had died unexpectedly. As a tribute both teams held a minutes silence to remember the unstinting work Bob put into providing excellent surfaces for so many cricketers to enjoy over the years. Certainly the Doms boys will remember Bob, not just for the wicket prep but he was always cheerful and happy to chat about  cricket and showed a keen interest how the Doms were doing. Great man will be missed.

Perry skipper for the day lost the toss and was asked to bat first, something he would have chosen to do in any course. Its was a two jumper day, wind whistling and clouds dashing across the sky looking for somewhere to dump a load of wet stuff.

Chicken and Davidge opened on Bobs last prepared wicket. For an April wicket it played well throughout the match giving some help to the bowlers and keeping the batsmen honest. Its was a steady watchful start with 23 coming off the first 10 overs. The pair picked up the rate and took the score to 34 when Chicken became the first batting casualty of the 2015 season when he was bowled by Sharife for 20. Hodgy joined Davidge and the scoreboard moved on at a pace with Hodgy hitting a six and clipping a couple of fours. At drinks the Doms had moved onto 1-70. A steady first half but now skipper Perry would expect the batsmen to press on.

Press on they did, the 100 came up in the 27th over but Davidge had perished in the same over for a confident 37 which included 5 fours. Brookes and Hodgy started pressing on with some fine shots but with the score on 143 in the 33 over Hodgy capitulated LBW for a useful early season score of 57. 143-3.

Brookes blazed away but perished on 35 leaving Banners and Collins to hit some boundaries in the final overs.

Tea was taken as the Doms innings concluded on 197-5.

A good first tea of the season, sadly a glut of bought shop cake appeared. The skills of cake home cooking seems to have disappeared from the Doms repertoire.

Well with the teams full of food the Doms trooped out into the wind and cold. It was decidedly wilder and the clouds more ominous as Caesar J and Howarth came out the bat. Danny Brookes and Srini took the new ball and were soon causing problems for the batsmen. The first 10 overs saw 21 runs eked out but it was slow going with only the odd boundary being found as the Doms bowlers took charge and kept the Mose boys struggling to keep up with the run rate. At drinks the visitors were 62 without loss.131 to win in 20 overs and a full ten wickets available.

Hodgy, bowling well without luck sped through his eight with only 15 runs being scored off him. A great spell of bowling. At the other end the wily Banners was getting spin and taking wickets. Howarth the first to go for 31 quickly followed by Sharif for 4. The visitors were wobbling on 89-2 off 27 overs.

Last joined Banners and bowled an hapless Sehdeva for a duck with his 4th ball of the season. And in his 5th over flighted one up to opener Caesar who was well stumped by Chicken for a well grafted 45. Old Mose in deep trouble at 4-102 in 32 over.

Banners ended his spell with an efficient 2-26 and Martin Brookes replaced him and ripped through the middle order with some venom taking 4-18 in 4 overs. The Mose innings ended with their score on 135-7, a 59 run win for the Doms. A good competitive match to start the season off. Handshakes and a few drinks concluded a day to remember in more than one way.
