Indeed if you don't pick up at least one 5fer each season you are doing something wrong. One of our blokes took a 5fer in 2.2 overs which made a farce out of 5fers as well.
This last year was better however as we qualified for a better grade so there were less free wickets on offer.
It is especially tough batting against the two piece.
yeah i dont even get that many 5fers as after the first couple they shut up shop often, and as i said i don't beat too many for pace. so a lot of 3/20's and the like (12 in edges through slips probably)
Number 4 at St.James, duck. Lost.
Number 11 at West Chiltington, 0 not out. Lost.
Didnt bat at Hailsham. Lost.
Number 2 at Rottingdean, 1 run (which was leg bye honestly) - most enjoyable because I batted long by my standards, 15 overs imo. Draw.
Watched the FL T20 quarter-finals in Southampton.
Brilliant tour of the Brighton area. Great facilities, nice people and valuable experience for me :)
Probably one of my favourite posts on the forum. No ego, very positive and love of cricket. You deserve some runs in the future and the cricket Gods should smile on you because of this post :)

went in for my first session of pre-season, bowled OK, not to much flight and low on the revs, but landing my offies OK, batting wise I was solid and compact, but pretty loose outside off stump, barely laid bat on anything off the stumps.
A Successful Season
I've only just recovered from a big weekend of celebratory cricket!
On Saturday, my first XI team needed 22/24 to secure promotion and we did it. We managed to secure a 23 point win after bowling out the opponents for 136 and knocking off the runs whilst only losing 3 wickets.
Looking forward to a better standard of cricket next summer and a big winter of serious training!
I'm personally looking to be in the top 3 next year and will need to get some serious training/fitness work done over the winter to allow for this. Will also be taking my mate (fastest bowler in the league) down to the indoor nets to get some serious practice against the faster bowlers.
Hopefully all goes well and looking forward to a season in the Hampshire County Division 2 next Summer!
Forgot the lube by the looks of it.
well we did shove it up them
worst result of the season to date with a washout. on the piss
