Cricket: St Martin’s v Bugle

st martins cricket pitch sign 2The forecasters said it would be foggy on Saturday but St Martin’s cricketers decided to go ahead with the game against visiting Bugle. They could not start until 4pm, so twenty overs were decided on, in case it got dark before we could finish.

St Martin’s won the toss and decided to bat first. In an Eleven depleted of its usual players by the visit of Newquay gigs, the side was strengthened by some archaeologists that were digging on the island. They did not trouble the scorer overmuch.

Home captain Tony Goddard sored 21 and regular visitor Edgar Northey the same. The side was all out for 71.

Bugle scored the required runs in 16 overs with the loss of only three wickets. Top marks to the scorers who managed to see all this through the fog.
