Offley & Stopsley CC 118-5 Vs Bedford 117-9 ; 1st Aug

OSCC Won by 5 Wkts

A day in Bedford, what could be better? And due to Bexfield and Sale been unable to come on time Offley & Stopsley had to start with only 9 men in the field against Bedford, however later that evening the team would be rolling home with another victory secured.

However, Tattersall, Lunney and Ward bowled tightly, and with Freedman dancing around the field like a leaping salmon ensuring nothing would get past him Offley & Stopsley had managed to restrict Bedford to the rather mediocre total and taken out the Bedford top order.The game was somewhat interrupted by an injury to Tattersall, failing to field a routine ball, he fell collapsing on the flaw screaming like he was getting a multiple orgasm from Shania Twain. Only for everyone, including himself to realise he had actually broken his leg. After taking on copious amounts of oxygen, making light of the fact his leg was broken, he was bundled onto ambulance where it appeared not only his leg was broken but the rear axle of the ambulance soon would be too.

However, be rest assured all those on tour, expect to Tattshall fielding in the slips, entertaining you with the stories about his soap opera hospital ward.

The game saw the first appearance with ball of Freeman for weeks, returning to the attack and being as lethal as AC/DC single on your hearing at one end, and Patel strolling through his over’s as quickly as Dwain Chambers on steroids at the other. Together they took out the strong Bedford middle order and had the opportunity to bowl at the tail. With Brodie coming on for a aggressive final, excellent Bowling and Fielding from Offley & Stopsley had meant before achieving a total of little over more than 100.

It was time for Offley and Stopsley to bat with the exception of Bexfield the Offley top order looked as shaky as Mohammad Ali. It was Brodie that came in to settle the scoring with a couple of cover drives increasing the run rate, hitting a quick 16 run, this was quickly followed by Williams at the crease again taking on the spinner and getting 18 runs quicker than it takes Katie Price to accept a lucrative cheque from ITV3.

It was Hum’s who came in and played calmly, before letting loose with an array of shots as colourful as a Avril Lavigne concert with pulls, drives, flicks and quick singles that had Offley and Stopsley on the edge of victory. A short cameo from Lunney supporting Hum, allowing him to hit the winning runs ensured a successful innings for Hum and a victory for Offley.
