26th May: Littleport win against Chippenham (friendly)

Chippenham set us a target of 179 all out with a ball to spare, with a top score of 71 from Oliver Rix.  This might have put doubt in many teams, perhaps on an older Littleport wicket, but following a sunny spell the pitch was playing as true as a I can remember it -- ok I've not been playing long :) -- big shout to all those who spend hours getting the wicket in shape week in week out!
Mark found himself on a hat-trick, Scott was getting plenty of spin taking 3 wickets for 25 from his 10 and Conor had a great spell (deserved some wickets) conceding only 17 from his 5 overs.
Chris had another great day, taking 3 wickets in his 10 over spell and 67 at bat.  His day got better and better as he got dropped ... shot after shot after shot.  His new nickname is Chris 'fluffy' Farnell following his nine lives.
The sweltering heat sapped all our strength in the field, but we kept it together to the end taking only 33.2 overs and losing just 4 wickets.
Well done lads!
