Middle of April, and the sun was shining, outfield was lush and like lightning, surely a run fest was to be had on the top pitch!!
 how wrong can you be!

The Doms had 17 players to choose their match day squad for the 2017 opener, but by the time play had been called we were scratching around for our 11th player.  Stalwart club captain Pedro donned his whites quicker than he bowls to step in temporarily for M Brookes who had forgotten his boots (surely a sign that Pedro is reluctant to give up his love affair with Dom, don't tell Mrs Pedro).

Having 2 of the Bromsgrove ground staff in the Dom's ranks was undoubtedly going to work in our favour as the Dom's bowled first. D Brookes was the first to strike in the third over quickly followed by Srini in the fourth. By over 5 the visitors had scrambled to 20-3.  By drinks Coftonians were rocking at 88-5, M Banham joining in on the act with a Lasty-like long hop grabbing a scalp.

Then a good partnership between Shahid and Afsar looked like the putting the visitors in command.  However more fine bowling and fielding (notable good takes from Banham in the deep and Morris at slip) saw Coftonians limp to 155 all out by tea. Some good figures including D Brookes 3-18, R Pedley 2-10 and M Brookes 2-7.

Now if only we could guarantee a tea like this every Sunday throughout the summer all arguments about Quiche would pale into insignificance.  A fine tea performance including hot sausage rolls, non weird cheese sandwiches and of course Mrs Banham was back to her best with Rocky Roads and a strawberry concoction that was bowling the crowd over. 


It was widely believed that the opening pair could knock these off within 20 overs but when reigning Batsmen of the year C Adams was pointed to the pavilion by quick finger Banham things looked bleak. A fine knock of 45 from Pedley followed but when he produced a leading edge the same thoughts went through every Dom's mind.  The dreaded collapse!!!
 

Well the Dom's delivered in abundance, going from 93-3 to 113 a/o. Notable was Smaylen's attempts to rid himself of his much maligned trophy failing miserably, and D Brookes putting in an early bid for the ducks by grabbing a golden.

With the dreaded sniper putting paid to Tank's afternoon after only 5 balls, a thoroughly miserable second half to the game was complete!
 

Only the treasurers new stationary pack was left to build the players morale in the clubhouse.  A fine new document/money holder was the highlight thereafter.

On to next week!!

 Player of the match - Pedley for a fine knock and better figures than Banham!!

 
Dropped catches - C Adams 1, Hodgy 1
