Crowd Day One

The faithful return despite a cooling breeze

Topley HS

Topley pushes to leg (note the ball framed by slip’s ankle) and scampers the single bringing his highest first-class score. It beat his 12 for Essex v Hampshire on the same ground – maybe that’s why he fancied the move?


That’s all Folks. It’s a good job Hampshire fielded a strong tail!

Funny old game. Bad enough trying to explain the rules to a foreigner but how do you tell them that play has stopped for bad light…….when the floodlights are on !!! ps we might scrape a draw if we lose play tomorrow?

An ode:
master of litotes
– “cooling breeze”.
Freezing knees

– if brass, no testes
left. Jeeeez!

Apologies to William McGonagall
