Swann was a magnet to the ball throughout the Daventry innings. He caught
one, dropped one, fielded five, saw two go over his head, and produced the
highlight of the game by attempting to catch a skier, watch it pop out of
his hands and have a second go with the right hand. That bar of soap
popped out as well, and the third and last attempt then saw him fall on
the floor like a cross between being shot by a sniper meeting a Ronaldo
dive. Not to be beaten though, Malc bowled 2 overs for one run and one
wicket and was joined on the bowling front by ageing trundler Graham 'Rabbit
catcher' Mayes, who whipped out the last 2 rabbits within 3 balls.
St Michael's made short work of the 50
required, losing in form opener Simeon Tinnant and the out of form Mayes,
before Dale Harrison and Matt Collier saw the team home, just as they had
the week before.
The whole team enjoyed a beer or two in
Flore on the way home, with man of the moment Malc again in the action
winning the football card with Notts County, before retiring home to
embark on an evening out with the family.
Old friends and rivals the Bold Dragoon
are the visitors to Fortress Brixworth next week.
