This week a new look team travelled the short
distance just over the water to our near neighbours Broseley. Once again Oddy
lost the toss and we were invited to bat on a very green looking track. We
were soon in trouble at 30 - 4 until Oddy and Oggy put a partnership together
and took the score to mid 60's then debutant Harry Thomas joined his skipper
and supported him well. Our total was quite decent with the track playing up
with variable bounce, 120 was a total that could possibly win the game.
Madeley were indebted to Oddy who batted well finishing on 65 before he was
excellently caught by the ever agile Garth Cooper who was guesting for the
Kieran and Lee Bowen opened the bowling and once
they had gained the right line and length bowled swiftly and accurately and
had reduced the home team to 38 - 3 when the heavens opened and ended the
Broseley 8 points Madeley 6 points.
