Thorpey heroics just fail to clinch victory

By

First victory still awaited

On his first team debut Vaz put together a classy 26 before a rush of blood contributed to his dismissal, Will and Toony also contributed, but it was left to Matt and Tom to give the score some respectability with a last wicket stand of 40 A total of 144 looked a bit short against a solid Egerton team. For the second visit to Melton in a row, Countesthorpe lost a wicket with the first ball of their innings, but avoided the ignominy of extras being the leading scorer for the 2nd week running when extras finished on 25 just a run short of top score. The lower order batted sensibly to bring about a partial recovery and test the hosts on a wicket just starting to keep a little low.

in reply Egerton were cruising at 108-1 as Thorpey rotated his bowlers. Matt nipped out Bailey for 33 and all of a sudden panic set in. Classy Glover was deceived by the returning Thorpey departing for 66 and Rose was bowled by Matt. Thorpey was then into a spell that brought 5 wickets for 3 runs in 5 overs as Egerton's lower order forgot which end of the bat to hold! After a series of near missed Mould middled one to see his side over the line by 2 wickets, in a game that lacked quality but was full of excitement.

A genuine feeling that a win is not far away and the next few weeks results will be vital if the team are to move up the table
