This week saw Harborough Evening League recommence
Bowden the setting to start KCC’s title defence
A change at the helm this week’s common theme
And we are no different now Broughts leads the team.
But for now this is only as Cricket Director
Until his appointment with the shin splints inspector
So Newbs was Brought’s skipper a motivator with nouse?
As he started his team talk Scott was still at his house!
With the prospect of losing to Bowden twice on the trot
Just Luke from the 3rds was deemed not mentally shot
KCC chose to bowl & were making their mark
Avoiding their left hander kept the ball in the park.
Now it’s just my opinion & not so much fact
The introduction of Driver lacked the ‘Saturday’ impact
Without the incentive of a gold MVP hat
Is probably the reason he didn’t trouble the bat!
Set 102, opening with Pedley & Bale
Battling the elements with rain & a gale
A brisk 22 brought a Dan Pedley smile
As for his team mates with his unique running style
Newbs went for 1 and Luke went in next
Same bowler from Saturday left him out & perplexed
Bale made late 30’s but was out to the curse
Of a bowler so slow that his pace nears reverse.
With Scot in with Scholesy Bowden knew they were beaten
When Scot’s winning 6 landed just short of Smeeton
Exhausted emotionally from scoring Broughts cheered
Then showered with his winners and shampoo’d his beard!
