The cursed Blackwall tunnel almost put paid to Cally's premier league aspirations. Fortunately two boundary-traddling 'Stella Swigging Hobos' (in the best possible taste) rescued the day for a below par Cally's Team.

Taking the field with 6 players, the skipper found Dave Weekes and 'Fuz' Lawrence enjoying a drink on a warm evening. They kindly accepted the invitation to represent the Cally's for the evenings proceedings. The former cricketers left on the scrap heap of life were re-juvenated! and what a find they turned out to be.

London Fields batted first and started at over 10-an-over plundering 61 off the first 5 overs. Fortunately Dave Weekes and M Siddiqui came on to put the brakes on to the London Fields innings. London Fields posted a challenging 147 off thier allotted 16 overs.

Mohammed Fazal and Bazlul Haque started the Cally's innings at over 12 runs an over posting 72 inside the first 6 overs. Two quick wickets put the Cally's on the back foot. Cally's were kept in the chase by Amir Khan who hit a match winning 37 before being cleanly bowled by Paul the London Fields 'all rounder'.

Last over Rick Daives Joined M Siddiqui with 7 to get. Siddiqui got a boundary early in the over putting the pressure back on London Fields. One wide ball and a single stolen meant scores were tied with two deliveries to face.

Rick Davies drove Chris straight past a wide mid-off to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat for the Cally's. Great game played in good spirit.
