Lovely ground

Beefy Roberts is MTWD's last man standing and gives us a short report on our inevitable defeat

Good grief the PA is on full volume as I’m thinking at ground all 3 results arew on. There is a sizeable crowd in. 

We survived 4 overs for 11 runs. Harry is out. Mala reached his 50 and gone soon after. TRJ and Murts partnership is worth one less than 50.  TRJ manages a 6 to top of marquee before out for what might be a valuable 31. Target 108 Davies takes 10 catches behind which is a Birkdale record.

As we bowl over rate -1. At 13-1 at lunch I feel we could still win stranger things have happened.     Once 43-1 I gave up. We took another wicket on 49 . Once 80 reached Ravi and Stirlo bowling. I’m out of here knowing over rate is safe.

Despite the result and Saturday weather I enjoyed my stay.  The people here are friendly and I appreciate their hospitality.  It was great Chairman S&B a recent MTWD regular came up to me yesterday and chatted . We appreciate the help he gave us for our travels. 

Let’s hope we return here soon

Thanks for that. Not a lot else to say. We were beaten by the better side and have to put that behind us and move on.

I would also like to reiterate that the ground was pleasant and the locals very friendly and the food was good.

Despite the result, I had an enjoyable two days with the usual great company.

Reading these reports from a few thousand miles away has been a bit of a shock to the system. Still, our run had to end some time. Thanks, Beefy and all who contributed reports, and I'm glad that despite the result you enjoyed your visit. It certainly sounds as if Southport made you welcome.

Still awaiting a full report on the lawn mower museum, though....

Our long run had to end sometime,but have to take the good with the bad.
Yea,still a shame to lose,but onwards we go.
Get the lads ready for our next game.
Lawn mower museum,I think Kev hovered over it,but still needs to be cut a bit around the edges before it's rolled out.
