Rain Comes Too Late To Save Plucky Outcasts

 

Wednesday 16th August 2017

Lymm and Oughtrington Cricket Club

Weather: Overcast, Threatening Rain

 

Outcasts 93-4 off 20 overs

Lymm 94-3 off 19.1 overs

 

Lymm won by 7 wickets with 5 balls to spare

 

Outcasts journeyed to Lymm on the 16th August for the second fixture this year against the local team, though the prospects of play seemed slim with heavy rain forecast from about 7.00 pm onwards. The visitors batted first with James Donnelly, making his Outcasts' debut, opening the innings with David Walsh. David was obliged to retire under 'local rules' having accumulated a brisk 26 runs, which included 5 boundaries. Paul M. came and went without troubling the scorers, bringing Scott to the crease to partner James. James was eventually dismissed with the score on 53, but Scott, who was put down at least twice in the field, made the most of his good fortune to reach 25 before he, too, had to retire. Les, electing to give himself a rare knock higher up the order, contributed some lusty late blows to take Outcasts to a final total of 93 off their 20 overs.

 

Glynn and Parsons opening the batting for the home team and looked in full control of the run chase in the early stages of Lymm's reply. Parsons reached the 25 retirement maximum, but two quick wickets gave the visitors a sniff of a chance. Lymm still needed 13 off the last two overs and, in steadily deteriorating light, Outcasts were hopeful of an improbable victory. The hosts' batsmen held their nerve, though, and knocked the runs off in impressive style with a 6 off the first ball of the last over. The rain that had just started to fall had come too late to help the visitors on this occasion. Glynn, Parsons and Spaven impressed with the bat for the home team, while James Donnelly (again) and Les Cooper (with two wickets) performed well with the ball for Outcasts.

 

Next week sees Outcasts at home to old friends and rivals Chorley Hospitals where the home team will be seeking revenge for a narrow defeat earlier in the season at the Bolton School.
