In reply St. Michael's stuttered a little. Both openers went cheaply,
Kingston jnr. followed last weeks ton with a disappointing 9 – playing across
the line once too often and Kirby was bowled around his legs. So it was left to
then the old head of Matt Collier to steer his team home by 6 wickets with an
unbeaten 15, ably assisted by Andy Tate at the other end. The result means St
Michael's are still in the hunt for a top 3 finish which would be the highest
league placing in living memory!
Former St. Michael's captain, 88-year-old Fred Harris turned up to watch and
renew old acquaintances. He must have been impressed with what he saw, though
was probably hoping for a full afternoon's cricket. The game was over by 3:35pm,
which meant that the tea his wife had so lovingly packed for him was eaten at
home after all!
