St Michael's go top after defeating Daventry

St Michael's recorded their third win on the bounce to move to the top of Division 9 after an 8 wicket victory over Daventry.

St Michael's bowled first and soon had Daventry in trouble as Tom 'Mayhem' Marlow (4-25) took 2 wickets in the first over of the game. Indeed the Mick's opening bowlers of Marlow and stand in skipper Ian 'Steve Sidwell' Geddes took 7 wickets between them to leave the Daventry batting campaign in tatters.

Malc 'Youngstar' 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.
