Friendly Match vs Dinas Powys, Dinas Powys Common

Author: Dave  |  Category: Matches

Northern once more played a 40 over game against a Sunday team and came away with a victory.
Being put into bat and given instructions to stay in and make sure we lasted the overs Jimmy Vaile and Russ Palmer strode purposely to the middle as everyone else settled down on the side to their tasks at hand, Ashish and Nick scoring, Dave on the scoreboard, Ashley smoking and Carl and Baz revising for an exam.

Gareth Jones was padded up and ready to go but it became clear that Jim and Russ had no intention of coming off any time soon. A comfortable 3 an over to start moving towards 4 an over as they progressed it was the last ball before drinks that saw Russell caught for 22 with Jimmy on around 40.

Gaz batted confidently finding the boundary at will, Jimmy resisted the nervy late 40s and made 50, and it was a surprise when Gaz fell for 18 just as he looked set. Chatap was unlucky to be deemed LBW for 5 after getting a big stride in. Barrie came in next and batted fluently for his 12 before being caught but while this went on Jimmy’s serene progress continued as he passed 80, and the club record, and started dreaming of 3 figures.

Captain Chedzoy played a dream of an innings scoring quickly but also giving Jim plenty of the strike and it was the 39th over when a misfield allowing a boundary took Jimmy to his 100. The first in Northern history although only Northern’s second match over 18 overs. Jimmy was run out on the penultimate ball of the innings allowing Nick Windley a chance to stand at the non strikers end as Ashley took another 2 to finish 31 not out. 214 was a new club record score and Northern took tea confident they would go into the second innings firm favourites.
