TT & 12 MATES WATCH ONE SIDED MATCH

LEAMINGTON LEMMINGS 273 for 4
TEMPLE GARFTON 174 all out

TGCC LOST BY 99 RUNS

It’s a rare thing crediting Thompson with foresight, good judgement and perspicacity, but on Sunday he chose wisely to park himself on a bench with a dozen bottles of beer rather than volunteer for the starting eleven.  Toss lost and on a warm, muggy afternoon TG trudged out to field.  And not a lot of good came from the next few hours.  At 83 for 2 at the 20 over stage it was still competitive, with two wickets for a very lively Pedley.  Another 190 off the last 20 speaks for itself as everything and everyone, at some point or other (with the exceptions of Onens 8-0-26 and most of what Ben Ashfield bowled) was flogged.  273 for 4 and out of sight.

A robust tea later and a somewhat inevitable disintegration.  Onens again starred with a typically pugnacious 40 as wickets lost caught up with Thompson’s bottle consumption.  Apart from Pedley’s contribution at three, only the 8,9,10 tail wagged – the Farrows scoring 49 between them (one run in favour of the elder) and Young 18 – I suppose suggesting an inept choice of batting order.  174 all out in the 38th and a not unenjoyable afternoon, but a wholly uncompetitive one.
