A pleasant warm sunny evening was the setting for this pleasant
'stroll In the park' for Tower Hamets CC!
Losing the toss, and being put in to field, Homerton might well have sprung
a surprise, if the estimated 8 missed or dropped catches, created by a quite
useful bowing performance, had been held.
Alas, they were all missed - including a skyer to which Homerton's
captain and wicket keeper hilariously failed to even lay glove on - one of
the two or three examples of fielding that had the entire team in stitches!
A hopeless fielding performance (with one or two notable exceptions)
was followed up by an equally hopeless batting performance, as Homerton
heroically crumbled beneath a very strong and sporting Tower Hamlets.
Despite the humbling team performance, there was one shining beacon of
Ned Woodman's all-round bowling, fielding and batting performance
earned him the inaugural Solly Commemorative 'most valuable player' Award.
