Outcasts faced Chorley Hospitals at Winton on Tuesday, 22nd August in their return fixture, looking for revenge for the narrow defeat sustained against the same opposition at Bolton School earlier in the campaign. Chorley were missing several stalwarts and, with an average age of around 60, made the Outcasts look a youthful outfit by comparison on this occasion!


The home team batted first and got off to a flying start with Derek creaming a number of exquisite drives through the covers to the boundary. He was finally undone, caught for a quick fire 21 at short cover, attempting another audacious shot. Meanwhile, at the other end, new boy James Donnelly was steadily accumulating runs. He was given able support at the other end by Nick, coming in to replace Derek, and the two had put on 29 together before Nick was bowled by Taylor for 14. It was at this point that the match turned, with Colin nobly sacrificing his number 4 batting position in favour of David Walsh in an attempt to accelerate the scoring rate. It came off, too. James and David stayed together for the rest of the innings, James carrying his bat for an undefeated 61, and David not out on 42 at the end. Outcasts final total of 143-2 was their second highest 20-over knock of the season.


Chorley were always going to find it difficult chasing down such a large score in steadily deteriorating light. This didn't stop them giving it a go, though, with two of their lads retiring undefeated at their self-imposed 25 maximum. Opening batsman Norman is to be particularly commended for his outstanding sportsmanship. He glanced the finest of edges down the leg side off Paul Mooney's bowling, where Andy took a spectacularly good, diving, one-handed catch behind the sticks. Nobody appealed, but Norman walked, knowing that he'd got the slightest of touches. Chorley's innings ended on 98-4 with Scotty and Paul cutting down on their pace in conditions that made it difficult to pick up the ball.


In a match that was packed with incidents, some of the more noteworthy included:

  • James undefeated 61 runs

  • David Walsh's 42 not out

  • Paul Mooney's 3-wicket haul

  • Andy's spectacular diving catch behind the stumps

  • Norman's sporting gesture

  • Chris's run out with a direct hit at the wicketkeeper's end from long off

  • Some excellent close fielding and two tidy overs of spin from Peter Taylor

  • Not one, but two maiden overs bowled by Chris, unheard of in limited overs cricket


A big shout out, too, for Les and Bob, who took on umpiring duties for both innings, displaying scrupulous impartiality and sound judgement, even when under the severest provocation (mainly from C. Wood).

After the match the players enjoyed beer and pizzas in the club house and looked forward to next season when these old friends and rivals will hope to meet up again.


MOTM: James for carrying his bat for 61.

Champagne Moment(s):

  1. Andy Broadhurst's brilliant, one-handed, diving catch behind the stumps

  2. Chris Truesdale's direct hit from long off for a run-out

  3. Colin's potentially match-winning decision to give up his batting place to David Walsh!
